He's a pleasant doctor, but is he NOT open to different ideas. I brought him some new, well-researched information about a different approach to the old-time treatment he offered ("exercise more frequently") and he wouldn't hear of it. Well, he was polite when he used his "broken record" approach. (doctor): "I'm sorry, no. I'm sorry, but no. No, I'm sorry. Sorry, no. I'm very sorry, but that won't work." (me): "But all I would like to try is —" (doctor): I'm sorry, no...."

Dr. Kelly is the best physician my husband and I have ever had. We trust him to give us the professionalism, expertise and knowledge we need. His kindness, thoughtfulness and demeanor are appreciated too. He also provides answers, feedback and information on a timely basis and understands the patient's needs and concerns. He saved my husband's life by providing him with the preventative care tests necessary. I trust him and only him to always give us the highest quality health care.

I've been seeing Dr Kelly for over 15 years and find him to be down to earth .Only challenge sometimes is getting scheduled to see him but that is health care in the 21st century

He's thorough and listens to your complaints and makes necessary recommendations for your care. He is kind, patient and has a laid back gentle demeanor.

Highly recommend going elsewhere. The office cancelled my first appointment after I was already there, they didn't even bother to call. It was reschedule to a Sat at 8am, the staff failed to put it in the schedule. The doctor was not even at the office for his 8am appointment. Front desk was rude and said it was up to the medical assistant whether I could see the doctor. This office is focused on volume and money, it does not provide quality service to its patients. Incredibly RUDE Staff.

I am writing for my mother who was 72. As a 20+ year patient of Dr. Kelly she felt he had become so uninterested and distracted in the last 6 months that she was going to have to switch doctors. She waited too long. Dr. Kelly failed on her last visit to truly evaluate her serious complaints: sharp pain in her left shoulder blade, swollen right foot, shortness of breath, ripping pain in her abdomen. She died at home, alone a week later. Dr. Kelly no longer has his head in the game. Needs 0 grade.

Doesn't follow up on anything. Seems like he is just bored when you are telling him the reason for the appointment.
