Canyon Lake |
Dr. Kella diagnosed my prostate cancer and managed the treatment and continues to follow up every six months.
in San Antonio, TX |
Excellent, very experienced Physician who cares about his patients, gives time if needed to explain the illness they are at his clinic for. He is courteous and a gentleman. His office staff is excellent and has his main offie in San Antonio and also a branch in Floresville, Texas.
Denver, CO |
Great Doctor - his office staff is completely incompetent. They never return calls and they claim to accept Insurance plans that they actually don't. Treat them with utmost care; like a 4 year old with developmental issues
San Antonio, TX |
I have seen Dr. Kella for 5 years with no complaints. My major cancer surgery was an absolute breeze compared to other peoples experiences.
