I'm a relatively new patient of Dr. Kellett. I was referred and been going to him for 3-4 months. He does everything you can want from a Dr. He makes you feel comfortable, listens and answers all questions without rushing you out. - Unsure what the commenter concerning Dr. Kellett hiding behind his office staff is referring to.. All in all, the staff and Mr. Kellett have been nothing but helpful. I owe him a big thank you for assisting me in my particular situation.

He hides behind Diane and Courtney. The worst office I have ever been in.. Absolutely no respect for his patients. Its all about the money. The office staff is rude and treats patients like garbage. Dont go there ....

Dr. Kellett is very compassionate and courteous, as is his staff (Diane and Courtney). He exudes care and understanding, genuinely listens and provides quality care. He maintains a high degree of professionalism while making you feel like a longtime friend. I have worked in the healthcare industry for more than twenty years and know he is a rare find, a physician I highly recommend
