"Dr. Kelso is a phenomenal doctor. She is an integral doctor that reviews our medical condition with enormous detail. Then my wife and I are guided by her team, Joely and nurse Lillian who are dedicated and thorough, always with care and a smile. They get all the appointments within our time restrictions with all the specialists needed, labs, scans, insurance approval and everything else required to get all the health treatments needed by the best doctors."
