I saw Dr. Kellee her for a Laser treatment on a basal cell area. Everything went smoothly and while there was a bit of a bite with the treatment it was over in no time at all.

Extremely pleased with the service and hospitality Dr Kelleher and his staff provided during my visit. I had a bunch of questions and Dr Kelleher took his time to explain and I didn’t feel rushed at all. Absolutely professional and friendly people at this clinic. Booking was super easy with the coordinator, (thanks Karen!) he’s booked out weeks in advanced and I can see why. I got the VBeam laser treatment for my rosacea and it has been the most thorough and precise treatment that I’ve gotten, and I’ve been to 5 dermatologists! I flew in from Los Angeles to be treated, and I highly recommend. The nurses are so nice and helpful. (It matters when you look like you were beat up in the face after treatment) Thank you guys! Five stars!
