I had to see Dr. Kelly on 2 separate problems with my hands over the past few years. I would and have recommended him to other people. So happy my doctor recommended him to me. He cares about his patients and gives you his undivided attention to your problem and in resolving it. To me he is the go to doctor.

Dr. Kelly takes the extra few minutes to thoroughly discuss your issues. Well worth waiting the extra 15-30 mins in waiting room knowing I am going to get all of my questions answered and not feel hurried.
