Specialties

Dr. James M Kelly has the following 2 specialties

  • Pain Medicine
  • Anesthesiology

    Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
    Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
    Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.

Staff

I must say that after reading the other reviews I find them pretty accurate with this exception; i have never experience rudeness from his staff. The office actually runs like clockwork and wait time is reasonable. Dr K has a wall of people between him and them. It is next to impossible to actually talk to him on the phone. You have to talk to a nurse who I guess, he trusts to make medical decisions on his behalf. They may or may not consult with him. I believe Dr K has let his practice get too big causing him to have less time and availability for his patients. Having said that, I still recommend him. He is excellent at what he does. He doesn't stop until you are satisfied with your pain level. If you are just looking for narcotics go somewhere else. He is a doctor, not a dealer! The government keeps a close eye on pain clinics and laws have tightend on what and how much narcotics are being prescribed. Try to understand that. His practice is much too important to his patients for him to lse his license.

very rude and ignorant staff

Dr Kelly is only as good as his staff and their rude and very ignorant I rather suffer in pain than go back to dr Kelly. I had a problem and his receptionist, crystal refused to let me speak to him. his ma came up and yelled at me than told me to leave. This wasn't the first problem with his staff, I addressed the prior problem with dr Kelly about his ma being rude and ignorant. well I guess nothing was done about it, their still the same. every patient should be treated with the upmost respect and no one in his office knows the meaning of that word. overall if you want the care that you deserve find another dr .
