Dr. Keller was very thorough in explaining the surgery my husband was about to undergo. He has great bedside manner and is very knowledgeable. He is one of the only local doctors we were able to find that did robotic lung surgery and we are ecstatic with the results. During the post operative visit he spent his time making sure that everything was healing correctly and again was very thorough! I would recommend this amazing doctor to anyone!

Dr. Kellar is one of the kindest and caring doctors we have ever met. His bedside manner is amazing and everyone in the hospital has a lot of respect for him. We have no experience with medical issues but he made sure to explain things in a way we could understand and spent a lot of time answering questions. He came by after surgery and introduced himself and shook hands with ever person in our family. I highly recommend his for anyone who is facing heart surgery

This man should not be allowed to call himself a doctor. I suggest you avoid him if at all possible, and do not let him operate on your family member.
