Awesome doctor. Collaborated with my neurosurgeon to remove a pituitary tumor and had to follow up with him to check progress on healing. Loved him and Caroline in the office. I hadn't seen a doctor that does everything (from calling in the patient to spray your nose for a check) in a long time! Loved him!

Dr. Kelly is the best doctor ever!!! I was going to do surgery with another surgeon and the other surgeon was going to cut deep and if I had done surgery with the other one I would suffer my whole life.I went to see doctor Kelley and he gave me a better solution than the other surgeon.He did a great job and he saved my life.

Loved Dr. Kelley. Knew his stuff and was friendly. Would recommend, worth dealing with their horrible scheduler Meredith to get the appointment. She would not return calls or paperwork but worth following up yourself to get the best. Their staff has advised me a new person is in that position.

Dr. Kelly is one of the best Drs I've ever been to. He did my rhinoplasty after I had a botched job. He does the natural look. If you want the plastic look you are going to the wrong dr. I love how friendly he is and how he listens to what your needs are. He doesn't over sell. I've had a few other friends see Dr Kelly too and are extremely satisfied with his work and talent. :)

Visited Dr. Kelley last summer to treat chronic ear aches I'd been experiencing. He spoke with me and examined my ears for 10 minutes before prescribing a simple vinegar and alcohol solution to balance the PH levels in my ears. Unfortunately, things turned sour when we received the bill. We were charged over $1200 for a surgical procedure when he had only met briefly with me and looked into my ears with a basic scope. Repeated calls to their office were not returned and we were stonewalled.
