Patient Comments (8)
Dr Kelly is always friendly, professional and takes his time to make sure that you know exactly what your options are. During my initial evaluation for Lasik, Dr Kelly spent more time discussing my eyes than other Lasik offices had. He proves that he cares about you as an individual and not as just another procedure.

Dr. Kelly is a wonderful doctor, he has excellent patient bed manners. Besides being super pleasant, I trusted him with my vision/eyes. I have never trusted anyone as I trust Dr. Kelly. In addition, his staff is very friendly. I would recommend Dr. Kelly to everyone. Thank you Dr. Kelly!!!

I had my first lasik about 15 years and it was great. Dr. Kelly was fabulous. I did a touch up last year as my vision changed after 45. That went well too. I highly recommend Dr. Kelly. He is easy to talk to and very experienced.

I had a wonderful experience doing my eye correction with Dr Kelly. Him and his staff are great to work with and always helpful as well as friendly. They all made me feel comfortable from my consultation to my follow ups. I have already recommended him to others.

Little Neck, NY |
As a result of Dr. Kelly's surgery I now wear two pairs of glasses. It took him weeks to admit that he had overcorrected my eyes. I would not recommend him to anyone.
