I Trust This Man!
I've seen Dr. Kelley 6 -8 time in the last two years. He's administered three Epidural Steroid injection in my lumbar spine, and this appointment was to schedule a fourth injection and discuss spine surgery. Dr. Kelley is a straight shooter, and my wife and I both trust him.

I’ve been a patient of Dr Kelly for over 4 years. He is thorough, has time to explain and answer my questions, approaches things conservatively in the beginning, but keeps working to find a solution if conservative approaches don’t help.

Would not recommend based on my experience
Not impressed. Looked at one xray, said I need physical therapy. I tried to ask questions but he repeated same thing, physical therapy. Didn’t want to spent any time with an examination or anticipating obvious questions. Had me lift my legs, said my back worked fine and I didn’t need surgery (I said I certainly hope not, and that’s not why I made the appointment). His nice smile and good looks are no replacement for compassion/bedside manner for someone suffering with chronic pain. I was out of there in 2 minutes or less. He was already signing off on paperwork after first 45 seconds. Really do not care to see him again.

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.
