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.
