First visit. So happy to find a Dr. that offers “after regular workday/5:00 pm” appointments. Booked the last availableappointment of the day, but never would have guessed that from how incredibly friendly and nice the staff was. Dr. Kelsey put me to ease as soon as he walked in, was very easy to talk to and had great bedside manner (even despite me nervously rambling about my sick dog while he performed my pap). Highly recommend.

Dr. Kelsey was good. His staff on the other hand was unprofessional. When I asked for an outside referral for a test, instead of listening to my concern calmly, the nurse yelled at me and was extremely unprofessional. It would be great if the doctor's service was matched by a professional staff....but unfortunately it was not. When someone is dealing with a health scare, the last thing you want to hear from a nurse, is a loud voice and repeated attempts to talk over you rather than carefully listening to your concerns about your feminine health (which is obviously a sensitive matter to the patient). If you can't calmly deal with a patient who is worried . . . you shouldn't be in this industry.

Dr. Kelsey was incredibly helpful. I saw him for an annual exam, however he really helped to address a lot of issues I’ve been dealing with. He took the time to really explain things, when usually people want to get you in and out of the office so they can check you off the load. He was very kind and attentive.

I was referred to Dr. Kesley by a friend. This was my first visit with him and he was very thorough and did not rush the visit. His explanations of concerns I had were easily understood. In addition, any recommendation that was made, he provided a reason for it and provided research behind his reasoning.

DO NOT visit this doctor. He does not tell you what he is going to do before he does it, and then makes you feel stupid for being surprised by it. For example: starts inserting speculum with no warning and tells me to relax because I can't "beat the steel" and that it shouldn't be painful.
