My wife has been a migraine sufferer for over 50 years. We have seen lots of pain doctors. When we found Dr Keelen I knew we were home. He has inserted a pain pump in her and works tirelessly to reduce her pain level so she can have some quality life. He listens and is a compassionate Dr His office person, Kaitlin runs a tight ship and he ls fortunate to have her. I highly recommend Dr Keelen.

I was amitted to the hospital and my regular physician was out of town, he stepped up and performed a SI joint injection on me, which I have never had done before. He was courtesy and compassionate, and explained everything in detail before, during, and after the procedure. He and his staff really came through for me!

I have had two procedures on my neck by Dr. Keelen. I am very happy with the results. Dr. Keelen takes time to answer your questions and is detailed in discussing your treatment options. I highly recommend him.

I must admit I had anxiety at first because I had to change doctors, but I want to express Dr. Keelen has been wonderful. He is not only excellent in caring for his patients but has a true compassion for them as well. I am so grateful I found Dr. Keelen and truly appreciatiate his care. Also his front end receptionist, Caitlin is super nice and helpful. Thank you Dr Keelen for helping me with my cervical issues!

The best doctor I have had in my whole 41 years. He treats all of his patients with special care and respect. He installed a morphine pump in me 3 years ago, and the chronic back pain I have had since I was 16 is almost completely gone. Before my surgery began Dr. Kellen sat beside my bed and patted me on the leg and said I promise I will do whatever it takes to make feel better. I wish all doctors could say that to their patients. Isn't that what we want to hear? I love you Dr. K.

Dr.Keelen is a fantastic Dr, he spends time with his patients and answers any questions you have without making you feel like he is trying to rush you. I was with another Dr for several years and never felt like he truly cared. I am grateful to have found Dr. keelen!
in The Colony, TX |
I have been a patient with Dr. Keelen for over a year and I have never experienced from ANY Dr. such compassion and empathy for a patient. He really does care about your pain. He's been working with me for so long and instead of sending me to another Dr.,he cares and wants to solve this pain I am going through. Thank you Dr Keelan and Kaitlan, you are the best and a rare individuals. Love, V
