  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

He hasn't changed. I knew him as a patient in medical school

In 1993 Bryce then a 3rd year medical student at UCSF in his Neurological rotation met a man in need of a temporal lobectomy. He as his current ratings confirm was a natural at bedside manner. My uncle, a doctor witnessed him interact with me and stated..."Bryce has a natural ability and talent for bedside manner, bedside manner is born in you, you can't learn it!" Dr. Kellams would go above and beyond and spend extra time with me and my wife serenading us with his guitar and soothing voice. Thanks for your friendship Bryce. P.S. I have been aura and seizure free since the operation!

Promptness and accuracy an issue

I had Bryce as my doctor for a while. My first problem cropped up when he billed my insurance for a problem that I had told him was not covered under my policy. After getting notice from his office I tried to clear up the matter and have them charge my insurance for what I had come in for and what their own records showed. 5 times I called trying to clear this up. It never was. Then on my last visit I was left waiting 50 minutes after being told he'd be right in. Then to top that off on my way out the door, his staff was too engrossed in talking to take care of my bill in a timely manner. I stood right in front of the clerk as she continued to talk away ignoring me standing there. I dumped him and his services. Martha Jefferson seems to have an issue with timely service as I got the same long wait for a shoulder specialist this doctor sent me too.

Makes mistakes in Billing

This doctor wrote down the wrong reason for my visit. What he put down was not covered by my insurance. Now they are harassing me for payment of a bill that would have been covered by my insurance if it had been billed correctly. Have tried 3 times to correct this matter with his staff in billing. Still getting collection notices. I will never use this goof ball again....
