I personally can’t say enough good about Dr. George Kellis. He had performed two surgeries on me, both areas previously done by another surgeon. Nothing but problems until I found Dr.Kellis. His manner is very attentive and he listens. I recommend him to anyone I know facing ailments under his expertise.
