Resurgens Orthopaedics Varied

I've been seeing Dr. Kelly for several years for bulging disks in my lower back. He and his staff are always very pleasant and thorough during my office visits. I also had several epidural injections by Dr. Kelly at their Morrow outpatient clinic. Everything has always gone smoothly and the clinic staff has always been very kind and competent.

Resurgens Orthopaedics Varied

You are a person, not a number. He listens to me and understands my pain. Every treatment I have had has been spot on. He gets everything lined up perfectly the first time . Gets me moving again with little or no pain. I don,t know what I would do without him. I have referred several people to him & will continue to do so.
