Dr Kelso is an awesome surgeon. She is professional and a very talented doctor. I am so glad that my spine surgeon recommended her to assist in my back surgery. Dr Kelso and her fellows took charge of my post surgery pain. I was very impressed that when she came in to see me post surgery and realized that I was experiencing pain, she took charge of the situation to get me the proper care I needed. I would highly recommend Dr Kelso to anyone needing a vascular surgeon.
