Ratings for Dr. Todd Kaye
Dr. Kaye knows very little about thyroid diseases. His diagnosis was not accurate, even though the symptoms are obvious. He doesn't listen to the patient's concerns. The only test he runs is TSH, no T3/T4/TG/TGab, etc. I am actually surprised and disappointed by his attitude towards diseases and patients. He seems polite, but he is more like a businessman. He does't care patients from his heart. Definitely not a trustworthy doctor.
He did not handle my thyroid nodule growth on time (for almost 3 years), examined only once a year with TSH test, no T3 test or no test for Hashimoto's disease. In 2008, he did a biopsy on a big nodule(without using ultrasound) and few cells appeared to be suspicious, but he was not very much concerned. I insisted on having another biopsy in 3 months (again no ultrasound, despite requesting for one). I changed doctor as per ENT doctor’s advice and had to have my entire right gland removed eventually and I’m now on Levo. Thank god, I switched to a wonderful doctor who really cares for his patients (outside camino medical group). My only regret to this date I trusted this doctor for too long despite advice from other doctors to get a second opinion. If the symptoms were detected early by this doctor, my thyroid gland could have been saved.
I was hyperthyroid and he did not run a thyroid test despite all symptoms pointing to that. Wanted to put me on anti-depressants despite not being depressed. I was correctly diagnosed a short time later by a doctor who is not an endocrinologist and a standard t3 blood test confirmed that I was well above the upper limit. He should have checked, as I was very sick, with textbook symptoms, at the time I saw him.
Dr.Kaye listens to concerns and works with patient on what can be done to resolve them. If I am at the appt early, he will see me if he is available in. Very professional. Responds to messages the same day in person. I wish my other doctor was like him
