I’m new to Dr Kelley after seeing another orthosurgeon for 4 years. Definitely liked him a lot more after just one visit. He was much more informative about what could be done to help me and offered a better plan for surgery as well. Overall in just 1 visit with Dr Kelley I am a lot happier than I was over 4 years with my previous Dr.

I strongly advise against seeing Dr. Kelley if you have a workers comp case. He brushed off every symptom that I stated I had as if I were making them up. He refused to order an MRI which is standard practice with a neck and back injury. He even commented “no wonder she’s asking for an MRI, makes sense now” after my nurse casemanager mentioned she’d be in touch with my lawyer after he refused to be my doctor any longer because I had questions and concerns about my plan of care. Workers compensation is in place for a reason, unfortunately you will likely not receive the care you need if you attempt to advocate for yourself since he takes it as one is “dictating” what care needs to be given and telling him what to do.I have never been treated in such a manner by any doctor. I am sure he is good at what he does, I am also sure he treated me differently because it was a worker’s compensation case.
