The non medically trained people at desk are making medical decisions for you.

I had surgery from another doctor. After my recovery and prescription for recovery was exhausted as written, I called the office of Kelliher. I had been on a long term script with him. The person in office decided, I couldn't have script and I shouldn't be done with other doctors prescription. I explained in detail why I should get my script filled as usual at this point by the Dr. Kelliher. She told me I'm not getting prescription , and she was done helping me. I wrote a letter and n detail stating all facts and phone call. I then received a letter in the mail stating it would be best if I move onto another doctor. The employee obviously didn't tell the truth of the whole incident to the Doctor. Do not put your life in these people's hands.

Office Personnel

I have been a patient of Dr. Kelliher's for many years. Everyone on his staff are very kind and caring. Most times when I have a visit I see Trish though I know when I really need to see him directly that will happen. I find Dr. Kelliher to be very helpful and caring.

This was the worst doctors visit I think I have ever experienced. I have had stomach issues for several years, and finally made an appointment with Dr. Kelliher from the recommendation of a friend. From the moment I met Dr. Kelliher it was downhill. When I started to describe my symptoms/experiences and what I had been told in the past he repeatedly cut me off and told me that it either didn't matter or he didn't care, those being his exact words. I became so frustrated and humiliated by Dr. Kelliher that I actually started crying. Dr. Kelliher didn't even so much as offer me a tissue, I had to get up and get one for myself after he asked me if I was going to be okay. After telling me the standard IBS (which shouldn't be resorted to unless all other diagnoses have been ruled out, and they haven't) and that I didn't need further testing because I am too young to need it, he prescribed me a medication and gave a VERY brief explanation of it. After dealing with his office staff scheduling me another appointment for 3-4 weeks away (why? I have no idea, he gave me no advice and no reason to come back) I obliged simply to get out of the office and on my way. I later looked up the medication he had prescribed, which turns out was for Anxiety related Gastrointestinal issues. I am sure that stress plays a role in my issues, but I refuse to believe that is the sole instigator. All in all, I DO NOT recommend this Doctor. Go somewhere in Boston.
