Dr. Kelly is Patient oriented and a very smart surgeon. Dr. Kelly took his time and explained my injury and surgical options for my complicated knee injury. He made me feel informed and confident in the treatment path for my injury. It was nice to find a good surgeon who is able to have full conversation with me and was willing to answer every question I had.

Awesome Doctor

Dr. Kelly is the best doctor I have ever had the privilege to be seen by. He has been working with me post-op for my full knee replacement. Though he did not perform the surgery (I wish he had) he continues to be an amazing and trusted resource for me. When I have questions he takes a moment to think about what I said and gives me an honest and thought out answer. He has helped me to understand the process of my healing and has offered support when I was frustrated and or worried about my progress. I feel so comfortable and confident in his care that it is almost as if I am talking with my brother. His staff is kind courteous, and knowledgeable. They treat every patient with respect and consideration. The office is clean and neat, and easy to find. If I have to wait for a few minutes I don't mind because I know that Dr. Kelly is helping someone else the way he helps me. Dr. Kelly is a good man and a great doctor.

Dr. Kelly,

Having been drug through the system of workers comp for a knee replacement it has been so refreshing and down-right uplifting to have Dr Kelly in my walk to recovery. I cannot make one negative comment about his practice, his staff, or his office. His staff is kind and caring and knowledgeable. The gal at the front desk greets you when you walk in the door as does anyone else behind the counter. aside from an occasional wait of maybe 10 minutes which is most likely because Dr. Kelly is taking time with another patient, I am always pleased with the time spent at my appointment. Dr. Kelly is a very caring man who will sit with you and answer ALL of the questions you might have even if they don't particularly have to do with your injury. I have never felt rushed by him and he always speaks to my level. His bedside manner is warm comforting honesty that is so often lost by others in his field. When dealing with workers comp patients doctors are often not paid for months and I know of several cases where they have not been paid for over a year for services they have provided. I have had doctors share their frustration with me in ways that make me feel guilty, as if I had something to do with it. Dr. Kelly has NEVER made me feel uneasy in any way. Dr Kelly is THE BEST as far as I am concerned. I have referred several others to him including my husband and other family members and friends and they feel the same and have also referred even more to him.

I was referred to Doctor Kelly by the VA with TRI WEST. Using the Choice VA for non-Veterans medical care. My first visit with Doctor Kelly was a quick Evaluation of my my ankle. After taking a few X-ray of my foot and given me the assessment on my ankle. I am ready for my surgery. That is needed to repair the damage to my ankle. Doctor Kelly's past Medical Expertise and military background made me even more comfortable. Speaking with Doctor one on one with my concerns and with his assessments, reassured me that I will be able to recover from this major procedure. I highly recommend Doctor Kelly to all Veterans and Non-VA patients. I will hope to see more Veterans request for his service. I will return to my more rating and comments on this site. I will be having my surgery done in a couple of weeks. Notes for all Veterans, go through your primary Doctor 1st,then if the VA medical Hospital can't perform the surgery or your appointment is over days . Choice VA will refer you out with TRI WEST. That's how I got to see Doctor Kelly. I additionally added more information on this site in hopes to share with all other Veterans. Doctor Kelly have been working with Military personnel and continue too. I find Doctor Kelly caring, understanding and very Perfessional during my consultation.
