Review long time overdue. I had total knee replacement surgery approximately 2 1/2 years ago by Dr. Kelly. I had each knee done separately 3 months apart. He had been referred to me by another doctor in a different specialty. I found Dr. Kelly to be a very attentive and compassionate doctor from the very first appointment. yet very professional.--a very "get down to business" doctor that still had a human aspect to how he approached the patient's medical needs. I would recommend him highly.

This was the worst experience I have ever had in a medical office. Dr. Kelly is personable, but ultimately did nothing to properly diagnose or treat my injury and my care kept getting passed off to an assistant, Sean, that knew nothing about my case and had no interest in diagnosing the injury. Their main interest was injecting the area (the wrong area) with a steroid to bandaid things. On top of the poor care and customer service, they then tried to bill my insurance for false procedures.

One of the hardest fields in medicine is to diagnose. I had symptoms after cervical surgery unrelated to specialties listed herein. It was by mistake that I was scheduled with Doctor Kelly. He asked me about my symptoms, he listened attentively. I pelted him with questions. Maybe yet another surgery? He went to his computer and showed me information regarding my pain and worries and said: your situation is one of wait and see. Don't rush into anything. 2 weeks later symptoms began to fade
