Saw Dr. Kelly as a new patient today. He was pleasant, professional and thorough. He took the necessary time to explain his findings and recommendations. I look forward to seeing him again at my annual exam next year. All staff membersI dealt with were pleasant and helpful as well. The only problem I encountered was with the online registration. I completed my check in and forms online, but still had to fill out all forms when I arrived as they said the online forms had not been printed out.

I was very impressed with Dr. Kelly both times that I have seen him as he was extremely nice and took the time to listen to my concerns. He also made sure to address my concerns and was very reassuring. AlthoughI did have to wait a little longer on my 2nd visit to see him, he was apologetic about the wait. I would definitely see him again and would recommend him to others.

Being a New Yorker I was shocked at how short my wait was and how quickly my appointment moved along. Dr. Kelly's intelligence is apparent, his manner is gentle and attentive and I have never had a more relaxed opthalmologist appointment.

Front desk and assistants were wonderful and accommodating. Dr. Kelly has great bedside manner, explained things well, and seems very knowledgeable. I'm thrilled to have found someone with his caliber so close to my home. There is a contactlens specialist on site as well whom I found to be very knowledgeable as well. However, make sure when you book for Dr. Kelly and you want contact lenses you try and book the two appointments close together as they have their own schedules.

The wait to see Dr. Kelly was about 45 minutes which was not ideal. However, Dr. Kelly was worth the wait. He was extremely kind, but you at ease and genuinely interested in you the patient. I highly recommend Dr. Kelly.
