Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Dr. Kellawan is very professional. He always allows me time to ask any questions and to make sure I understand what he has said. He does not schedule appts. too close together, so you don’t spend your day in his waiting room. Dr. Kellawan is an excellent doctor. I highly recommend him.

Doesn’t listen to you. He was concerned with getting me in and out of the office. I tried to explain the treatments he’s given me I’ve done already and hasn’t helped and I wanted to try something new, that I’ve had this issue for years and he dismissed me saying it’ll clear up in a month and shooing me out.

Dr. Kellawan is excellent. He gave me treatment options and immediately treated my bothersome moles and age spots. My treatment is still relatively new, but I have confidence that within a few weeks, my expectations will be realized.
