Ratings for Dr. Cynthia M. Kelly
I have a very serious condition and went to Dr Kelly for help. She did not care and was condescending and rude. She did not explain anything and acted like she was bored during my appointment. She is mean spirited and acts like she hates her job. My entire life is changing due to my disease and she could not care less. She was a nightmare and so was the office visit.
Dr. Kelly is the Best!. She is a lovely, confidant surgeon and knows what she is doing. We had to go through a very tough decision about amputation and she was behind us 100%. Dr Kelly was meticulous, skillful and truly one of the best orthopedic surgeons in the Western region. Extremely caring, compassionate and gifted. Highly recommended. would not have gone anywhere else!!!
Lack of pre-op organization-practice should be far more organized in terms of follow-through and paperwork. FAQ should be addressed in initial packet. No indication as to knowledge, because she expects the patient to just trust her without asking questions. She does not attempt to anticipate or address the questions a patient might ask. Cold & without compassion; limited explanations; does not go over imaging; uses shaming to push a point.
I was referred to Dr C. Kelly , in the summer of 2013 with a malignate sarcoma in my pelvis at that time i think Dr Kelly was some what over whelmed by what we were all dealing with here But her stick to it tiveness , started to figure out what would be the best for me her new patient it took a little bit for both of us to figure each other out but she kept an eye on me and my condition and referred me to Dr IOANO HINSHAW at the Rocky Mountain Cancer Center for Chemo upon completeing that to Rose Medical Center for radiation all ALONG guiding me with what i was going to deal with and what to expect in this time we gained a trust and an outstanding patient , Doctor , relationship . At the end of radiation I truely believe that Dr Kelly made a huge decission that took an incredable amount of thought and that was to refer me to colleagues of hers at the Mayo Clinic , rochester , minn because of her standings with these Doctors myself and my family were treated like celebrities at the Mayo Clinic and the team of Doctors that was assembled there and because of Dr Kellys relationship with these Doctors I know that they saved my life after returning from the Mayo Dr Kelly took over with my recovery and two additional more minor surgerys She has become a wonderful friend to me and as i continue with my journey and my fight with this cancer I hope that she will remain with me as my doctor and my friend whom i have grown to love and respect i wish her nothing but the best in her life and her career She truely is one of the finest in the medical field in this country and she will alwas have my heart and my devotion Hoke Francis Cancer Survivor , Cancer Patient
I would not recommend this doctor to my worst enemy. She may be a great surgeon, but she is the least friendly, coldest, MD I have ever seen, and I have seen many. She also is sloppy. She apparently did not take not that I am a diabetic when she told me to take Glucosamine and chondrotin, which contain glucose, very bad for diabetics.
Dr. Kelly treated my AVN with core decompression surgery - so far with success. I have been seeing her for followups and am always impressed with her knowledge around what she does and her ability to listen to her patient and understand their needs. She is honest but also compassionate. She serves to educate her patients and let them make educated decisions. I highly recommend her, especially for the treatment of AVN. There are VERY FEW orthos who have experience with this condition! It is serious and deserves prompt and highly skilled action by the most experienced doctors. You will only find a few of Dr. Kelly's caliber in the US.
