This review pertains to Dr. Kelling, not the clinic. I was in hospital for 15 days & he was the attending. Worst experience with a dr I've ever had. Room visits were 1 minute each day. He opened bathroom door once & had visit while I'm on toilet! I had severe diarrhea. He ordered laxatives! I had a severe allergic reaction to an antibiotic. He was informed, but didn't note my chart! I was almost given 2nd dose! This could have ended very badly. His notes say I have cancer. Nope. Diverticulitis!

Extremely disappointed in this physician. This is a MD that did his residency at Duke which is one of the best hospitals in the country and this physician did a terrible job explaining what was wrong with my father. He changed his medications, referred him to rehab, stated that some of his other issues was his PCP's situation and flew out of the room. Not in the room more than 2.5 mins. This pulmonologist listened to his lungs for 10 secs. He didn't even explain his PFT results...Pathetic.
