I am 72 years of age and became totally deaf in my left ear a previous doctor said there was nothing they could do as the nerves had gone, but after having my ears suctioned by a nurse she advised me to have a referral with Mr Kelly. The result was that he performed a stapedectomy operation and now I have about 80% of my earing back which takes me into a different world at my age. I couldn't thank him enough and pleased to write this review of a wonderful, caring man.
I had to write a review as I went to see this doctor privately because of all the great reviews, but my experience was anything but great. I found the whole experience extremely stressful because Dr Kelly blamed everything on the psychological. A complete waste of time and a huge disappointment when I have real problems. A very horrible experience.
Thank you for your review, any review is appreciated. I try and be honest and sometimes psychological problems present to me rather the physical ones and I listen and try to be trusted and recommended but no one can by trusted and recommended by everyone. I might still have got your diagnosis correct however! GK
