Approximately a year ago I walked into Dr. Kass’ office, and little did I know it would change my life for the better. I had spent the previous week researching for the best facelift surgeon in my area, and I found many great reviews about Dr. Kass. I quickly made an appointment with him and soon realized that I was making the best decision I had in a long time. I decided to move forward with an endoscopic forehead lift and facelift. I was able to get my surgery in the time frame I wanted and with what my work scheduled allowed. His office staff was always available to answer my questions, and calmed my nerves as the big day approached. After surgery I had nominal discomfort, with slight bruising and swelling. I followed Mary’s after care directions to a T, and was so glad I did. Dr. Kass said it was remarkable how quickly I healed! As I went in for my 1 year post op, I was amazed by my before pictures. I look like a brand new woman, with poise and grace. Coming to see Dr. Kass was the best decision I could have made! I am so much happier and smile so much more. The deep furrow lines are gone from my forehead, and my face looks like it did 15 years ago! Thank you to Dr. Kass for giving me back the confidence I always knew I had!

We just completed our first week here and I can not begin to explain the relief I feel at finding this preschool. From day one the director, Sheila, did everything she could to put myself and my son at ease and provided me updates on how he was doing all day. To find someone that will take the time to make my son that comfortable is a true blessing in any mom's life. My son loves to tell everyone about his new "school" now. The daily curriculum engages little minds with lessons, as well as, arts and crafts, circle time, music and sensory play. I love all the fun things my son shows me he has done each day and the crafts he brings home for me. Outside of the amazing staff and learning, the cleanliness and health standards of this facility are above and beyond any similar school. Visibly sick children are asked to remain home until they are symptom-free for 24 hours. They wash hands, theirs and the kids, frequently throughout the day.If all that isn't enough, they have the best security system of any school I've seen. You have enter your code to get in and wave your hand over a scanner to get out which is at adult height. I will continue to recommend this school to anyone in need of childcare.

I came to Dr. Kass, not really knowing what I wanted. I just knew I was aging, and wasn’t looking how I wanted to. He listened to what I was concerned about, and between the two of us we came up with what I felt was an excellent surgical plan. I never felt pressured or rushed through my consult with Dr. Kass or his surgical coordinator. I came back one more time before I booked my procedure, and had decided to go with a facelift and eyelid surgery. Dr. Kass staff was very helpful with the scheduling process, and very willing to work around my work schedule. I followed the office staff’s suggestions of eating fresh pineapple, and taking an over the counter supplement called bromelain to help with bruising, and I am sure glad I did! Hardly any bruising and swelling wasn’t as bad as I expected it to be. I saw Dr. Kass yesterday for my 2 month post op appointment. After reviewing my before photos with him, it was beyond clear to me that I made the right choice in picking Dr. Kass as my surgeon.

Dr. Kass and his staff have made this whole experience absolutely fantastic! I met with 2 other doctors before seeing Dr. Kass, and there’s a reason they say to save the best for last. Dr. Kass did not rush through my consult, and I really appreciated that. His office staff addressed all of my concerns and were so nice in answering any lingering questions I had. I knew immediately that he was the right surgeon for me. I booked my procedure the same day as my initial consultation with the doctor and was able to get it done a week later. (I figured it was now or never!!) Dr. Kass did a facelift with fat transfer and my outcome has far, far exceeded my expectations. He truly is a master at his art and I couldn’t be any happier. I no longer sag and have the youthful but refreshed look I wanted. Both the doctor and his staff really care about their patients. They went above and beyond to make sure I was healing properly and happy. This doctor and his staff are truly a class act!

Dr. Kass is an excellent injector who knows exactly how to correct crow’s feet. I’ve seen him 5-6 times before for Botox, and he never disappoints. I am writing this review because in my last visit, Dr. Kass confided how stunned he was when he received a critical review from a patient he injected Botox on and how stunned he was to receive it even though he was confident that he did nothing wrong for that patient. He also confided that for the very few critical reviews he has received they are always unreasonable patients who come for injections and then demand their money returned as did this last patient. He said that the reviews from his surgical patients are almost uniformly positive and appreciative of his skills. I have always had the very best results from his injections and he could not imagine going to someone else! His staff is always friendly and nice, and greets you with a warm smile. Dr. Kass is always a pleasure, and I feel at ease with my face in his capable hands.

I decided to go to Dr. Kass to receive Restylane in my lips. More than anything I wanted to go to a doctor who did the injections himself, rather than using an esthetician or nurse. Two of my friends go to him, and they are always very happy with their results. I was able to get in a few weeks after I called for a consult, and received treatment same day. Dr. Kass was very patient and very gentle and explained everything to me. My lips looking AMAZING! I wish I had done this sooner. There was very little pain, and swelling went away in a day or so. My lips look soft and sultry, just what I wanted! Dr. Kass and his staff of dolls are true sweethearts!

Be very careful about trusting this office to keep your appointments. Mine were often given away due to someone with a similar name calling in and making a different appointment, thus voiding mine. The office staff are very young girls who seem to have no business sense; though they admitted their mistakes to me, they would not tell the doctor and despite being early for every appointment, it was never honored. I'd wait more than an hour before being told the doctor could not see me!!! This is no way to run a PAIN MANAGEMENT office! Shame on you. I now see a very good pain management office.

My son started at 1 and is now 2 years old. The changes in him are amazing. He doesn't even want to leave now when we pick him up. Drop offs and pick ups are a breeze but that does take some time. He is talking like crazy, sings songs, counts and does the abcs with a little help. They are really a wonderful group. I call it school because it's much more than a day care. The teachers actually show their love for the children, and it shows. He will be here through VPK.I would highly recommend them to any of my family or friends.

I was referred to Dr. Kass by my optometrist. I found that with age, my eyelids were sagging and puffy, and I wasn’t happy with how I was looking. His office staff was very friendly and accommodating. Dr. Kass is extremely knowledgeable and skilled. He addressed my main concern first, which was my upper eyelids, and brought the bags under my eyes to my attention. My procedure was quick and nearly pain free. I just saw him yesterday for my “after photos”. I am ecstatic with the results and progress!

I used to volunteer at this daycare until I moved to a different city. Now, I know it doesn't have any curb appeal but the inside is really nice and all the kids really love it there. The teachers are very friendly and they genuinely care about the children. You know what they say, don't judge a book by it's cover. Please, give this daycare a chance.
Tips & Advices
This depends on the facility. Patients should call to find out if they'll need a referral from their physician prior to making an appointment.
Aside from hyperbaric oxygen treatment, most wound care centers offer:
  • Debridement: The removal of dead skin and tissue surrounding the wound. This can be done surgically, using a whirlpool bath, syringes, enzymes that dissolve the tissue, or wet dressings that dry on the wound and absorb the dead tissue.
  • Dressing: Wrapping the wound in a protective film, gauze, gel, or foam.
  • Compression stockings: Tight-fitted fabric sheaths that encourage blood flow.
  • Artificial skin: A covering that is applied to the wound for several days as it heals.
  • Ultrasound: The use of sound waves to promote healing.
  • Growth factor therapy: The use of materials naturally produced by the body to encourage quick cell growth.
  • Negative pressure therapy: Creating a vacuum around a wound to encourage faster blood flow to the area.
Depending on where the treatment is administered, hyperbaric oxygen treatment  can cost $100- $1,000. After insurance is applied, patients may have a copay of $10 -$50 or a coinsurance fee of 10 percent to 50 percent.
Most wounds should heal within two to six weeks. An individual should seek chronic wound treatment if a wound has not begun to heal after two weeks or is not completely healed after six.
Most health insurance plans cover wound care. Patients should check with the clinic and their health insurance provider before seeking treatment to be sure.
