Mr Kelly is a very caring and kind person. He listens to you with sympathy and to what you have to say. He asks you how you have been since any last treatment and discusses with you how to continue, taking your suggestions into consideration and working out a plan for the future. And this is why I would thoroughly recommend him and his team.
Mr Kelly performed my 5 year old sons operation to remove his tonsils and adenoids. Mr Kelly is great with children and put my son at ease at the initial consultation and on the day of the operation. Highly recommend for a quick and efficient service from start to finish. Thank you also to Mr Kelly for taking a photo of the removed tonsils for my inquisitive son, he was a very happy boy
Thank you for these kind words. It is not that uncommon for children to ask to keep their tonsils after they are removed! This is not really a great idea, due to infection control guidelines, but a good idea is to offer the children (or adults) a photograph of their tonsils and this is better for the world at large and almost as good for the patient (and sometimes better -they can keep it forever!).
From start to finish I have had first class service from Mr Kelly, emails promptly answered even 2 weeks post surgery I still feel comfortable emailing with questions which were answered in good time. Surgery went well and I was talked through it beforehand. From first visit to surgery was less than 2 weeks. Recommend to anyone, fantastic consultant.
I cannot fault Mr Gerard Kelly. He has an enthusiasm and interest in his subject matter and I felt completely safe and reassured. He is a very pleasant, well mannered and cheerful man which certainly puts you at ease. Can't fault him!
