ACL Injury Prevention, Ultrasound Guided Injections


Staff and provider were friendly and knowledgeable. Had a great experience overall.

Navigating our first experience with a broken bone and being incredibly emotional we could not be more thankful for the patience and thorough explanation of everything that had to do with our daughters arm.

Office was clean and staff and Doctor's were very friendly!

Everyone is great great customer service great doctor I love it

Really caring and nice with us

Yes, my son saw Dr. Kelly at the new office in Glendale, and I really liked the new office. It was really bright and clean and looked very modern. Secondly, I liked that the x-rays were right there and they could take them. And then third, the one thing I like about Dr. Kelly is that he's very thorough and had recommended that we get an MRI before he made any additional recommendations. So I really like that instead of us maybe doing something that we shouldn't do to try and get it better, but he wanted to make sure he had all the information first, so I really like that about him.

The provider and is staff was friendly and respectful
