Dr. Kaye was a very special man. He has been treating my son for the past 13 years and cared for him in every way. Dr. Kaye is one the best people, not just doctors, we had on this planet. I am so grateful he was a part of our lives. My condolences to his daughter.

I met with Dr. Howard during the Shiva He spoke to me about the Rebbeim and his concern that there needs to be somebody to remember Lori HYD as a martar… I brought him the personal Tehillim of R’ Gabi Holtzberg Every shliach has the merit to meet someone who is a tzaddik nistor, not so nistor, this was Howard…his wife’s murder touched him to his core…you could see it The Rebbeim also touched him to the core, you could see that too To complete his work during these 10 holy days… He is someone that we can all learn… Read more »

Is there an email to comfort their daughter

So glad to have known him
September 20, 2023 3:00 pm

As a patient of Dr Kaye for several years I was saddened to hear of his passing. He was a unique man. He always took time at our appointments and asked about things outside of my medical needs. We spoke of many things such as family, politics, morals and more. I always came away feeling enlightened. My heart is heavy.
My sincere condolences to his family.

Same. He was my soon to be 89 years young Dad’s doctor. He ALWAYS went to extra mile with my dad. I attended a couple of my dad’s appointments with him during the pandemic and we had some enlightening conversations as well. I am so very sorry for his family, and their daughter, now having lost both parents.Hannah, I hope you are able to see all the wonderful words written about your dad. Blessings.

He will be missed

He was my doctor for many years. Amazing doctor. Always took extra time to talk with me about everything. Condolences.

He will be missed
September 20, 2023 8:12 pm

Dr Kaye was the best Dr I have ever had. He helped me in so many ways. He was a caring and loving Dr. It was an absolute joy to see him every Dr appointment I had with him. I am broken hearted when I heard he passed. He will be missed on more levels then just being a great Dr. And I will never find a Dr that cared as much as he did.

A great doctor
September 20, 2023 9:26 pm

I have been going to him for over ten years and just saw him last week. My condolences to his family, he will be truly missed.

A great loss

Dr. Kaye, my RA Warrior, he helped me come through the darkness of pain and for that I wll be forever grateful. He heard me when others didn’t want to listen. I considered him a good medical doctor and friend. To his family, “I’m so sorry for your loss. I can only imagine how you feel. He will always be in my thoughts as will you.”

I met Howard Kaye during the shiva for Lori.
I was present when a shiva visitor offered the
book to Howard. He instantly jumped up and
grabbed Lori’s copy of the same book. Howard
was a brilliant man. His total faith in G-d was evident. It gave him consolation l met him several more times and my wife and I had Shabbat dinner at his home. An amazing inspirational righteous man. BDE

You will be missed Dr Kaye
September 21, 2023 12:35 pm

My heart is so heavy, he was such a wonderful doctor. I have been seeing him for over 15 years. My sympathies go to his daughter and family. As the above comments said, he always took the time to take extra good care of you and not just medically. I will miss his hugs at the end of our visits. He’s truly a great person and a great doctor!!

So very grateful to have been under Dr. Kaye’s care and, more importantly, getting to know such a wonderful human being. I will miss you Dr. Kaye, but I will never forget you.

Beyond the medical
September 21, 2023 2:22 pm

Dr. Kaye is the only doctor I have ever met that was not only concerned about the disease but how a patient’s disease affected other aspects of their life, housing, faith, social activities, and more. He was the only doctor who understood we still have to live our lives after we left his office, and always tried whatever he could to give the best quality of life. We often bickered like siblings at my appointments when I insisted on doing too much and he called me out on it. His knowledge and care will be missed. I think of his… Read more »

A Thankful Patient

Dr. Kaye has been my doctor for over 13 years. I truly appreciated him and his friendliness in talking about whatever was on either of our minds, but most importantly for providing excellent medical care. He will truly be missed by me and many others! My deepest sympathy goes to Hannah for the loss of both of her parents far too soon in such a short period of time.

A Huge Loss
September 22, 2023 8:57 pm

I have been a patient of Dr Kaye for over 13yrs, to say he was one of a kind isunderstatement, he was not only the best Dr I have ever had he ensured
that when he would refer me to other specialists that the specialist were the Very best in their field and was usually the department head. Over the years we became very good friends. They broke the mold with Dr Kaye, as there will never be another one like him. Rest in peace Dr Kaye you will always be remembered as the best.

Bless the Kaye Family
September 23, 2023 5:40 pm

Thank you Dr. Kaye.
Many visits to his office helped because he taught me how to take better care of myself. I introduced Doctor to my husband, Ken.
Ken says: “I think she likes you better than me.”
Doctor replies: “well, I listen to her.” So true. He very kindly listened & helped many to do better. Lori is a lucky soul because now they are together forever. We miss you, Dr. Kaye.

My Doctor and Friend…

He was a great man who we all loved. Your friend..Nancy 🙏🏻

A gentle and honorable human being

Dr. Howard N. Kaye helped me with my RA since the mid-90’s until our last time together in July. Like so many I see here, he was a great doctor AND he became a close friend. We often spoke on so very many subjects, so knowledgeable!
My heart breaks for his daughter and all his close family and friends. He did love the Lord or God and often we prayed for and with each other, especially just after his wife’s tragedy.

I am saddened to hear I will never see you again. You were the best Dr and person I ever saw. You took such awesome care of me. I trusted you more than I can express. You were always the best RA Dr I ever had. Rest in peace my friend.

I was a patient of Dr. Kaye for many years and I was shaken to the core when I heard of his passing. I just saw him 2 weeks ago, not knowing it would be the last time. He was not just my doctor, but a person me and my husband could talk to on a personal level. His expertise and knowledge about my condition always let me know I was in good hands under his care. My husband and I developed a close relationship with Dr. Kaye and we both send our sincerest condolences to all the family members… Read more »

So very sad to hear of his passing
September 28, 2023 6:22 pm

I also was a 10 plus year patient of Dr. Kaye. As many others stated, he took the time to talk with me. I am so surprised that he passed away. The last time we spoke was in May and I wasn’t scheduled to see him again until November. He is reunited with his wife again. I send my sincere condolences to his daughter. 🙏🏻

SHALOM Dr. Kaye. You helped so much. I’ll miss your unique and special approach to practicing medicine and living an exemplary life. Shalom.

Dr House we called him
October 2, 2023 11:10 am

I was a patient of Dr Kaye for almost 20 years. When I first saw him he told me I can’t open a book and say this is you and what you have. We have to put all the tests together and come up with a diagnosis and plan. That’s what he did. My husband and I called him House because he thought out of the box and I got better. He saved my life! I was in liver failure with Lupus. Best Dr hands down!! He will be missed and my heart aches for his family. He was loved… Read more »

I Just found out to night Oct. 2. I was shaken to the bone. I was a patient and friend of Dr Kaye for 23 years. He was a caring and loving person. He died way too young. I will miss him very much. It is like loosing a family member.

I’m saddened to hear of passing of Dr. Kaye.
He was my doctor for nearly 20 years. Many of the other comments about his approach to care were the same for me. He was truly a caring individual who sincerely cared for his patients overall health.
Dr. Kaye and I had many conversations about a wide range of subjects that made me take actions that have improved my physical, mental and financial health.
Hannah, please understand how important helping others was to your father and how loved he was by his patients.
Sending you my deepest condolences.
John

Dearest Hannah and family, i have has the privilege of having Dr. Kaye as my doctor for many years and a friend for the same. As a doctor he was relentless in finding out the best treatment for a quality of life. He had come up with several treatments that have truly changed my quality of life. As a friend he had a quick wit and easy laughter and smile. I had just seen him a couple of months ago and when we left we had a laugh and hug.

Dr. Kaye

I received the letter from Scripps today and have read these tributes to The-One-And-Only, Dr. Kaye. Many of these tributes here are from patients for whom he cared for years/decades, like myself, memorialize the fact that he was truly a Godsend. The mold was broken when Dr Kaye was put on Earth. He resonated true and resolute caring for his patients, love of his craft–medicine, curiosity, dedication, and of course, humor. I have a complex condition that none of the many rheumatologists I saw over the years would pursue with seriousness. Dr. Kaye was different. He doggedly pursued finding answers… Read more »
