Exceptional!

My son has complicated orthopedic and neurological needs. Dr Kelfer has been one of many doctors we have seen over the years. He is by far one of the most compassionate physcians. He has helped us in numerous ways. He even calls out of the blue to check on our son...We are lucky to have him at Cooks

One Star

Dr. Kelfer in my opinion was very patronizing. he qyuickly summed my daughter up to being a mental case because of her past history without really spending anytime to see what was wrong with her. In his expertise if she didn't have apparent epilepsy than she must be making it all up. My child was very ill and now we have found a good doctor that cared enough to look into it!!
