Patient Comments (12)
in Canon City, CO |
My GP referred me to Dr. Kelly recently. I could not be more thankful. Dr. Kelly is the competent, knowledgeable, professional you pray you can find. Besides being at the top of her profession she gives you so much confidence you are in good hands because of the time she spends with you explaining what is going on and what to expect in the future, explaining your options and follow up. She is very warm and personable also. Dr. Kelly, PA Rhonda and MA Annette are all awesome!
in Steamboat Springs, CO |
I will definitely recommend Dr. Kelly to my friends and family should any of them ever have hip problems. Dr. Kelly is very professional, personable and friendly, and very helpful in explaining everything.
in Ft Collins, CO |
Highly likely!!!
in Canon CIty, CO |
I have a rather unique orthopedic problem that has failed to improve after three surgeries on the same joint and after seeing multiple physicians. I am confident that Dr. Kelly will get useful results from the tests that she has ordered. She took my concerns very seriously, listened to me carefully and thoughtfully. I understand why she is listed as one of America's best surgeons.
Littleton, CO |
I felt that Dr. Kelly was extremely professional. Her medical skills appear to be excellent. She was highly regarded by my regular orthopedic surgeon who referred my case to her.. I thought she evaluated my case carefully and gave me a good plan of action. The reason I did not give her a five was communication was very slow. She did not call me when she said she would. This happened twice. Communication is important. if you have a serious problem and of course very worried.about outcome.
in Denver, CO |
Dr. Kelly is very attentive and explains things well. She always asks if you have questions about what she has told you or about her recommendation. She is a very nice person.
in Scottsbluff, NE |
Dr. Kelly and her PA Rhonda are both wonderful, caring, knowledgeable providers. The staff are all very friendly, calls answered promptly, etc. I'd recommend her in a heartbeat!
in GOLDEN |
Dr. Kelly came highly recommended by my oncologist and other surgeons. Her bedside manner is excellent. She is an absolute professional. She removed a cancerous tumor from my leg and the surgery was a complete success. Her PA and office staff are all top notch. Don't think twice! You are in the right place with Dr. Kelly!
in Lakewood, CO |
I have found Dr. Kelly to be very forthright and understanding without condescension. She listened to my concerns and requests and offered guidance all of which lead to an extremely good outcome. As an experienced health care worker I found her skill (excellent) and bedside manner (well above average).
Thank you for connecting with us about this experience with our staff. We will be sure to pass this appreciation along.
Arvada, CO |
Surgery caused significant nerve damage.
We are very sorry to hear about this experience in our practice and would like to look into it further. Please call Kara Burke, practice manager, at (303) 928-8811, so that we can get further information to address the situation.
in Aurora, CO |
I had a colon cancer perforation that led to necrotizing faciiitis. Dr.Kelly saved my leg and my life; the disease has only a 25% survival rate.
We strive to provide the highest quality in patient care. Thank you so much for sharing this story with us!
in Ocala, FL |
I have absolute confidence in Dr. Kelly's advice and ability. She is thorough in her approach and puts patients and their needs first, with an ultimate goal to provide the greatest level of healing possible with the least invasive methods. When I came to Dr. Kelly, I could barely walk, and rarely without pain. One of her early questions to me was What would you like to be able to do that you no longer can?. I had given up hiking even mild trails - less than a year later I was hiking again.
