What People Say About Dr. Stanley Kelsey, MD
Reply
Dr. Kelsey is the only surgeon I trust with my life. He performed a mastectomy, beautifully, with no complications in 2000.and 2 more surgeries a few years later. He is kind, very knowledgeable, has a great bedside manner and, imo, the best there is!
