Specialties

Dr. Steven E Kelley has the following 2 specialties

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

  • Cardiology

    Cardiologists are doctors who specialize in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of conditions related to the heart and blood vessels.
    A patient may be referred to a cardiologist if he experiences symptoms like chest pains, shortness of breath, dizziness, or high blood pressure. The physician will then evaluate your symptoms, take your health and family history and your weight. The cardiologist may order additional diagnostic tests, such as an echocardiogram, X-ray or blood tests. If necessary, the cardiologist may also call for a cardiac catheterization - a procedure in which a small tube is inserted into or near the heart that can take pictures of the heart's activity, or relieve blockage.
    Once determining whether there is a heart condition, a cardiologist will treat a patient through cholesterol management, cardiac rehabilitation, and fitness. If surgical intervention is required, like open-heart surgery, a cardiologist will make that determination, but a cardiothoracic surgeon will perform the procedure.

learn how to make a patient feel comfortable even at their worstf

Dr Kelly you should really learn had to tell a person of something even this horrible not to hurt their feelings. You could have told me you have a problem that needs to be addressed soon because as a patient I wouldn't want anything to happen to you. Rather than say if we don't do this right away you can just walk out of here and dropped dead!! You make me feel so uncomfortable I have not been able to sleep is not was a problem that I potentially have phone what you gather from my stress test but rather from the way that you said it to me sir.

I think that part of being a great physician like any other professional is to have the a professional and skillful manner of communication. 10 years ago I met Dr. Kelley for a stress test as a part of general health assessment. In the last five months my wife needed to see a cardiologist before her hernia repair operation. We made two visits. During the initial visit he read the EKG and Result of a test and concluded that my wife can proceed with her surgery. Then he changed his opinion and suggested for her to do a stress test! Once completed, his manner of speech changed and took a 180degree turn by telling her that the hopes of making it are slim! My wife's face was covered with tears when I made it back in to the examination room.we discussed this by me asking many , many question related to the possibility of false positive results, etc. Regardless of the decision Dr. Kelley needs to brush up on how to be more determined and two how to approach his patients. Suffering from anxiety this was not easy for her. I was born in middle east and I think I can communicate better with this natural born American! I also asked him that of he has completed one of his own stress tests? "No!" was the answer. He is 45 he can use one! How can he communicate with someone without taking part! By the way Sarah ad Philip in the lab were great. Twi, the oriental nurse without any manner should look for a job in the back of a fish house.

Horible.

Dr Kelly initially was seem to be very nice. then he's really bedside manners became really very cut and dry. His nurse tweak whatever she's from she needs a lesson on how to treat patients very rude oriental woman. The only one in the whole staff that I felt very comfortable with if the lady Sara and Phillips kind people that should have more of those in the world.
