Sadly I spent 11/2 years under the care of Dr. K for sleep apnea and didn't improve but actually got worse. I received little education on the dos and donts like not letting pets in your bed. Though I complained about not feeling refreshed when I awoke, Dr. K never tried changing the pressures. When the readings indicated the mask was allowing air to escape,(leaking) he offered no fix. Now I'm with a new doc who did a new study, made pressure changes and after only 3 nights, I see some ??Change

Warm, compassionate doctor.

Initial meetings (2) were fine. Would you wait for OVER an hour in an exam room and have no one tell you what's going on? Would you accept a doctor who says that your numbers a fine despite the fact that you're telling the doctor that you aren't getting any sleep? Would you trust a doctor who bills your insurance even though they didn't see you? Receptionist staff has to be one of the rudest group I've ever come across.

Dr. Kellar seems to be both personable and knowledgeable. I have tremendous faith in him. I have found that his office and support staff is just terrible. There is a tremendous disconnect between Doctor, staff, and patient. Why should a simple question take multiple calls to the office and several days waiting to be answered??

Dr. Keller found and treated a condition I had with sleep apnea, needing oxygen at night. My life has been vastly improved. Iam greatly appreciative for having found him ,the nurse practitioner Amanda , great practice , and their professiona staff and kind manner .

I was surprised how easy it was to get an appointment within a short amount of time. I didn't have to wait long in the office to see Dr Kellar like I do at other specialists. He answered all my questions but still made my appointment quick and concise. I also had experience with his respiratory therapist Melissa, she was great as well. All around a great couple of visits!!

The Doctor is ok but the staff is poorly trained in customer service and have even taken parts of a device that of course I was billed for. and getting to talk with their billing Department is a joke 10 calls and always get their voicemail promising to call back and never do.
