The office staff was the friendliest I ever meet!!
Soft-spoken, quick to business, and informative. I didn't feel like my time was wasted once I was speaking to the Dr.
Great job! No pain during procedure.
I am a surgeon who does laparoscopic surgery. After discussion with Dr. Kella I decided to have a robotic prostatectomy for my prostate cancer. I believe in surgery and I wanted surgical removal of my prostate despite the possible and certain consequences of operative resection. I picked Dr. Kella for my robotic prostatectomy as did other physicians that I know personally. I was out of the hospital the next day. I am completely satisfied with the process and outcome. Each patient is different and no one choice is right for every patient. In addition, each patient undergoing operation will have a different experience and outcome. I am very pleased with the choices I made and the outcome I experienced.
He and his staff - super nice.
We (my husband's visit) had a wonderful experience. The staff, the Nurse Practitioner , and of course Dr. Keller were all excellent. I will definitely recommend him and for sure come back to see him.
Everyone from the md's, pa's and staff very professional and knowledgeable.
