Patient Reviews:
"Dr. Kelly was very good at listening to my child. She's a teenager, so she took my child's input before she reached out to me as the parent, which I really appreciated. She also was extremely thorough and was able to give some ideas of things we could do in the short term before we are able to get an MRI."

"Dr. Kelly did an amazing job. She spent plenty of time with us, going over our son's condition and was very thorough. She made it very easy to understand and I was grateful that we were able to get an appointment with her. Thank you!"

"We really appreciated our appointment with Dr. Kelly. She was extremely attentive, very interested in our child's health, and very interested in listening to our child. We were extremely impressed with her and felt like Dr. Kelly gave the best possible care and attention to our child. She was very careful to answer all the questions that we had and communicated extremely clearly, and in a caring manner."
