Dr. Kelly is hands down the best Ortho I have ever seen. He did my Mom in laws full knee replacement and recently arthroscopic meniscus surgery on me. I had went to the CORE first and was told I needed a full replacement. I'm only 52 and wasn't up for that yet. Dr.Kelly said no way I am to young he cleaned up my torn meniscus about 4 weeks ago now and its feeling better everyday. I do have a lot of arthritis and am headed to have a full replacement but he bought me sometime and I appreciated that. His bedside manner is top notch. He spent a lot of time with me and i never felt like he was rushing me through ever.

It has been about five weeks now and the recovery is coming along great. If you are looking for a doctor that gives a damn please look at Dr. Kelly. He is not only a great doctor he makes you feel like you are part of the process, he will take as much time as needed to make you feel assured that this is right for you.

DR Kelly and his staff are wonderful! He's patience, knowledge and experience, made my experience and my knee replacement surgery stress free. This is my second knee replacement and compared to my other knee replacement, I feel my recovery was a success! My recovery was quicker and I'm back to an active life, pain free! Thank you Dr Kelly. Sincerely, Sylvia Spencer

DR. KELLY has saved me from unnecessary surgery. ANOTHER DR. had done maniscus surgery on both knees, which if I had known the risks wouldn't have done it. The inflammation destroyed the rest of my maniscus. They tried chicken fat shots on me which didn't work but, never told me about the PRP shots which did work and if I had known earlier could have saved my maniscus. Now I'm looking eventually at double knee replacement. Dr. Kelly I wish I had seen you first, I wouldn't be in this mess. HUG

I've been to many doctors of every kind in my 77 years, but have never found anyone to compare with Dr. Kelly. He genuinely cares about your ailments, and I never feel like he is "on the clock." He asks just the right questions and seems to know the diagnosis very quickly. A kind, thoughtful, thorough and considerate doctor who wants to help you.

I've been seeing Dr Kelly for over 10 years, both shoulders and right knee replacement plus numerous injections in both knees. Currently scheduled to address left knee. Without a doubt the best Dr I have ever met in my 74 years. Both in skill and bed side manner. My right knee scar is barely visible and the knee functions better than it has in 50 years. His staff is world class also.

Best doctor I've ever had. Very friendly. Makes you feel like a person rather than a number. Explains everything in detail (or as much detail as you want). Does tests so as to not do unnecessary procedures.

I have been seeing Dr. Lawrence Kelley for several years now. I think he is amazing, his staff is also amazing, I truly looked forward to my visits in his office. They made you feel like you were important and they took extra good care of you. Every person at that office was so warm and comforting. I would recommend Dr. Kelly to anyone, I never had surgery yet, but he sure knows how to give an injection. You have to ask if he did it yet and he's done.

Listened to me intently, asking probing questions to best understand my condition. Reviewed my MRI with me, explaining the mechanics of my knee as it relates to complaints. Discussed what the MRI and his physical exam reveal relative to my need for immediate or future care. I left better informed about my condition and symptoms to look for that would suggest a follow-up visit is warranted.

I went to see Dr. Kelly for pain in my right shoulder. He prescribed an X-ray and an MRI after the X-ray indicated a problem.After determining a rotator cuff tear, he suggested surgery to repair it.It has been a week + 2 days since surgery so I do not know the success of that surgery yet.As to Dr.Kelly,I have never had a doctor who is as down to earth as he is.He explained everything to me & my husband in patient language, not medical terminology, and left the decision to us.I highly recommend
