Although the actual visit lasted only about 10-15 minutes, maximal use was made of the time. Dr. Kelley answered my questions, provided valuable insights and options going forward, and alministed the cortisone shot I needed, all in the short space of the 10-15 minute appointment.

I have seen Dr Kelley several times over the last 6 years. He and his staff are always pleasant and professional. You are seen promptly and Dr Kelley assesses and addresses your orthopedic needs very accurately. You feel confident you are in good hands.

First time patient and Dr Kelly and staff were wonderful, my only complaint was the X-ray tech she was competent but not friendly or warm, especially compared to the other staff. So glad the practice was recommended to me !

In 1996 Dr. Kelly reconstructed my ACL. At that time he told me in the future I would have trouble with my knee (arthritis) do to the injury. In 2008 I saw him for the arthritis, he advised me to try taking glucosamine/chondroitin. It worked. In July, 2017 I saw him again for the arthritis. He administered a shot of Cortizone which has worked so far. I believe he is an excellent surgeon and doesn't rush to surgery when not needed. I ski, hike, and bicycle with no problem from the ACL.

I would never recommend CT Orthopeadic Specialists. I had the worst experience with the billing dept which affected my view on the practice as a whole. What medical professional asks for your ins info but does not verify your plan? Before seeing a Dr. you go in for X-rays then after 3 X-rays you see the Dr. and you "bruised" your knee. Maybe, if I seen the Dr. first I wouldn't have needed all 3 X-rays that were not covered. Went back and forth numerous times and I'm still unable to resolve.

Fantastic doctor, and an excellent surgeon. Good bedside manner, and at the top of his filed, particularly when it concerns knees, and/or shoulder injuries/ailments.
