Patient Reviews (9)
in Valrico, FL |
Dr Kelley is a wonderful rheumatologist. Kind, compassionate and a great listener, I highly recommend him.
in Bradenton, FL |
One female office staff member in a customer-facing position is untruthful in her dealings with the patient and the doctor. Beware your interaction with her at the registration/scheduling window.
in Sarasota, FL |
A very concerned and kind physician. He has helped me with a couple of issues with good follow up. Pleasant office staff.
in Sarasota, FL |
Dr. Kelley is an excellent physician. He is conscientious. He is interested in all aspects of my health (mental and physical). I like that he sees rheumatology as being interconnected with other systems related to mind and body.
in Sarasota, FL |
Dr. Kelley is compassionate, a great listener, and a fine clinician. He is treating me for psoriatic anthropathy and osteoporosis. I am under the care of several physicians for a range of issues. Dr. Kelley is conscientious about collecting and analyzing data regarding all aspects of my medical profile.
in Parrish, FL |
My experience with Dr Kelly was lack luster. I never had a Rheumatologist who didn't exam you. This man never once felt my joints or did xrays. He shrugged off pain as non related, but offered no solution to any problems. He is a nice guy with a good beside manner. He will do no harm, but certainly did not help.
Sarasota Florida |
i did not care for how I was treated by him or his staff.
Sarasota, FL |
A non caring guy who is not very thorough.
in Venice, FL |
Cried all the way home! He gave me no advice on a way forward. He didn't seem to like me. I could tell he wanted to get away from me and send me on my way as soon as he could. He didn't even recommend that I go back to my primary doctor, I had to ask. He did take my money though. I get that doctors don't have all the answers, but he just doesn't strike me as a doctor that likes people. I felt a very bad vibe on two occasions. This is the first time I have graded a doctor on a website.
