I am so very impressed with Dr. Kellner and her nurse Linda. Wait time is never long and she spends plenty of time with you. Very caring and explains everything in detail. Well worth the 2 hour drive.

started off good but slowly turn worst. Was a guessing game as to what to prescribe for my wife's condition. Toward the end she had an attitude about her and would respond in a sharp rude way. The staff on more than one occasion got her scripts sent to the wrong pharmacy or didn't send at all. I'd find someone else for sure

I just can?t say enough about Dr. Kellner and her staff. They are always on top of everything. She has a wonderful bedside manner. She is not afraid to let you know she is not sure what is going on, but believe me she will find the answer. Dr. Kelner and her staff treat you like you are their friend and want to go out of there way to help you.It is worth the drive from Lake Charles to see her. She is my mothers Dr. as well, so I have made many calls and been to office more then once. She is.
