What People Say About Dr. John Keeling, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
Dr. Keeling is the first orthopedic surgeon treating me or members of my family who combines skill, knowledge and experience with true compassion for his patients. 3 providers before Dr Keeling had tried unsuccessfully to relieve my foot pain. He listened carefully to me and gave me an option not provided before. He made time for me whenever I needed it and dealt with me with patience and warmth throughout. And his option worked. I highly recommend him for patients of all ages.

Misdiagnosed because he treated and x-ray instead of the patient. Did not listen, accused me of malingering. After surgery, tells me I need an ankle fusion and pushed me to schedule while I was coming out of anesthesia. Records request resulted in one line entries after being seen for months.

I had heel pain that was affecting my walking and exercise. Visited Dr. Keeling and through his advice and physical therapy, my heel pain is resolving. Friendly, professional care from Dr. Keeling and the PT staff (Scott & Pedro). The front desk staff is welcoming. I recommend Dr. Keeling and his practice.

I would highly recommend Dr. Keeling. He was a great listener and helped my ankle problem significantly in ways that 3 other doctors were unable to provide relief. He was conservative in his approach and used methods other than surgery for my torn tendon to heal. He was great at explaining things to me and very patient.

Dr. Keeling's care is excellent. He is caring. He spends the amount of time necessary to review and resolve my issues rather than rushing through a visit.

My Internist recommended Dr. Keeling when I injured my ankle and after meeting him I would definitely second that recommendation ! He is very knowledgeable and kind and as a nurse practitioner I appreciate both qualities.
