    I have been a patient of Dr. Kelley for nearly 30 years. I LOVE her!! She has taken very good care of me & understands how to not complicate my life. Her office is extemely efficient. For example, when I need a new prescription, my drug store has left a message that the prescription is being filled by the time I get home. I generally only go for my annual exam, but if I need a "note from my Dr." for something, it happens with minimal hassle. I trust her with my health to the moon & back!

    If you can see Dr. Kelly, do it. She is amazing been with her for 16 years- my whole adult life since I was 21. She cared for me through numerous ailments including cancer. She's more than a Dr., she really cares for you as a person. I was afraid to have a baby BC post partum runs in my family, and BC I had taken meds for depression. She knew I had never taken anything that would make me permanently weird when I had my baby she personally called to congratulate me & say how proud of me she was
