Dr. Keller is professional. His bedside manner is great. He is skilled in his expertise. He completed an ACL on me 7 months ago and I’m doing fantastic. I’m so thankful.

Dr. Keller was referred to me by acquaintances in the medical field. I had torn my rotator cuff and biceps tendon while working in November. Those who have had to deal with the work comp process know that it can be a long and frustrating wait for approval. Dr. Keller continuously submitted documents that allowed for my surgery and rehab. Dr. Keller performed arthroscopic rotator cuff and bicep tendon repair. I am back to work, no limitations. My shoulder feels stronger than before my injury !

Had a total shoulder replacement. Two days after the surgery had NO PAIN. I was amazed, and all my friends who have had shoulder surgery of various kinds, have been astounded at the ease and speed of my recovery. Completely attribute this to the expertise of the surgeon.

Great work! Dr. Keller repaired my meniscus in my left knee. From The first day this accident happen I was scared for my future. Being a plumber and a Big wave surfer, my knee will be needed. From the 1st. Day of meeting Dr. Keller my worries where less. The staff in the office, nurses and the team in the operating (windward surgery center) room gave a comfortable feeling throughout my knee work. The follow ups with Dr. Keller made me feel great ever step to recovery. Thank you Dr. Keller.

Had bad shoulder injury. Dr Keller methodically went step by step to fix it. Eventually had a successful surgery. He listens, takes his time, and explains options well.

Great experience with complete ACL reconstruction. Dr. Keller is very informative, and complete in his assertion of your medical situation. My particular reconstruction required a cadaver donor, and was complicated; Dr. Keller, made it very clear that this was not a sure thing... and would be a long hard road. I followed his instructions to a T. Today is 1 year after my surgery... I couldn't be happier with my outcome. I would definitely return to Dr. Keller for any orthopedic needs. A ++++

Dr Keller did an amazing job a year ago on my ankle ligament reconstruction surgery! I had the other ankle done previously by another surgeon and was hesitant to repeat the process until it was absolutely necessary. I was pleasantly surprised from the first few days post op. Although it's a painful and lengthy recovery, it was a much better experience than I had the first time and Dr Keller always provided excellent advice, education and support. Mahalo Dr Keller!!

Dr. Keller performed arthroscopic knee surgery for my torn meniscus. I was really nervous at first, but he reassured me he had done a lot of arthroscopic knee surgeries and that it was his speciality. I had little to no pain after the surgery and absolutely no scarring. After six weeks and a few PT sessions, I was able to go back to playing tennis and golf. And in 8 weeks, after my surgery, I’m going on a ski trip. Thank you Dr. Keller!

I went in for knee pain, saw Dr. Keller as my regular Dr. was not in at the time. I did not care for Dr. Keller's attitude and he didn't seem to take my pain seriously. He reluctantly gave me the shot but not in the area my regular Dr would place it. The shot didn't last long (2 months) and when I saw my regular Dr. the shot she gave me has lasted almost 6 months. Although I heard good things about him, after his treatment towards me that day, I will never go to him again.
