Ratings for Dr. Stephen J. Kelty
i asked him to please use stitches and not staples inside because i was very active . guess what happened? after refusing to take my call all evening after the surgery ( the ans. service said he was out to dinner and could not be bothered ) i was in terrible pain and swolllen like a balloon. when i finally got to see him the following day ,he laughed it off and said the staples had pulled out . and had the nerve to say he thought it was the anesthesia talking. no i specifically asked him not to use staples. well he now had to open me up in a more complicated surgery, which took much longer to recover. the bottom line - i got fired from a very good job that had taken two years and $thousands to secure. i am a fin. planner and have probably lost 1.5 million as a result . thanks , steve . very funny.
We asked him to do something during a surgery that he failed to do and afterward claimed to not remember. He is competent, but doesn't care about patients or their families and their wishes. If you want a touchy feely doctor with listening skills, he is not the one for you. Use him if you just want the surgery done correctly.
