Ratings for Dr. Kathy Keely
Between my 3 children Dr Keely has been our doctor for 24 years. There was a time I would trust her completely and looked forward to seeing her. However recently she has become hostile and downright mean to the point that I have now removed my children from her care to a family doctor even though I would prefer a pediatrician. I don't feel with her quick judgement or condescending attitudes even at times explosive temper makes for a correct and complete diagnosis. I don't know what happened for her to now be this way if its just time but I can tell you she needs to retire before the safety of her patients are compromised.
I never write on these sites, despite having a very sick baby. Have vastly varied experiences with medical professionals. But never have I been treated so poorly, at my most vulnerable, by anyone, never mind a doctor. So I feel obliged to tell you, if you have anything more than strep throat, do not see her. Maybe she was compassionate and professional at one point, but she is the trump of doctors now. Massage her ego and maybe you will be okay. Offend her and she will make your life even more stressful. From a parent to a parent, find another a doctor if you can.
Dr.Keely was my doctor since I was a baby. I can say that looking back to as long as I can remember... i have always felt comfort and safe. But even having the same dentist for just as long I can’t say same... Being a mother is a blessing and also terrifying at first... My son was born at the Ottawa Civic Hospital and I couldn’t believe my eyes when Dr. Keely walked into our room just after my son was born... I wasnt only just shocked to see a women That was so important and appreciated in my parents eyes and my own.... but I felt a warmth’s of protection and guidance as a new mother. I’m lucky to say that to this day... Dr. Keely has been apart of my Sons life since he’s been born .... but So have I. S&C Reid
I love Dr. Keely and her staff! As a first time parent, you tend to worry and be more concerned for little things. Dr. Keely is always so reassuring and definitely makes you feel like you're doing a great job. Always answers questions you have and gives you the answers you're looking for. Her receptionist is very welcoming and always pleasant to deal with as well as the nurses. Everyone is very friendly and you can tell they truly care about the kids. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a great pediatrician!
My children have been patients for a total of 18 years and I have seen Dr Keely change drastically. I stay because I remember the doctor she used to be. She seems to have reached her limit in dealing with parents and has no patience for questions or explanations of any kind. She seems downright hostile one moment and then catches herself, and returns to semi friendly. She is quick to point out parental short comings and seems to have lost all compassion. Life is hard and issues are sometimes convoluted and not as black and white as she implies, especially in a busy family. After a recent visit my daughter said " I don't like the way she talks to you Mom, it's not your fault ". I think that kind of says it all. If she is close to retirement she should consider packing it in. She is clearly unhappy and barely able to maintain the minimum in professionalism.
