Patient Comments (5)

Quick visits with a doctor that hears you but doesn't really listen. I think the other reviews here are people who probably know her personally and are trying to help her out. Her residents and fellows work just like her, very quickly, I suspect because that is the expectation she puts upon them. I have seen Dr. Kelly two times and I won't be returning. I don't pay insurance premiums and copays to have a 5 minute conversation. The assistant spent more time getting me ready than both MD's spent.
I welcome questions during appointments and try to end each visit asking if there are any further concerns. If you have additional questions after a visit, I would be happy to answer via secure health messaging or phone or an additional visit (if needed). It is my and my colleague's top priority to give our patients the very best care possible and we work hard to try and achieve this goal. If you would like to call the office, I would be happy to address any further concerns.

Dr. Kelly is the best dermatologist I've ever seen. Now that in in my 70's, I want to make certain that I have frequent skin cancer checkups and see a doctor who has complete knowledge of my various skin ailments. Dr. Kelly seems to know everything there is to know about the skin and all of her treatments and medicinal suggestions have all worked out beautifully. In addition, she is a kind, compassionate physician. I feel so lucky to be her patient.

Dr Kelly is the best doctor I have ever met. She genuinely cares for her patients, i take my son to see doctor Kelly monthly and she treats him like her own son. She is a mother so she understands our concerns and will address all our questions with every visit. She is the very best at what she does and yet is very humble. I know my son is in good hands when he is with doctor Kelly and her staff. Its really rare to find a doctor like her !

Dr. Kelly has been absolutely amazing helping us navigate through issues with our daughter and her burn scarring. She is always available to answer questions and is constantly looking for new treatments and innovations to help her. We wouldn't think of allowing anyone else to manage our daughter's scar treatment
