Dr. Kelleher was drawn to dermatology both for its intellectual challenges and the opportunity it provides to improve the quality of his patients’ lives. No other specialty demands the same level of intellectual analysis and technical creativity to solve patients’ problems. And as Dr. Kelleher likes to stress, because of dermatology’s complexity, it is absolutely crucial that patients seek skin treatments from board-certified dermatologists. They are the only true experts in medical, surgical and cosmetic dermatology.

Dr. Kelleher on patient care

Although I love all aspects of Dermatology, I get the most satisfaction and enjoyment from helping my patients realize their goals in regards to their appearance. Successfully achieving these goals comes through an inherent esthetic vision coupled with technical precision, skill, and expertise honed over 3 decades of tireless work and training.

"Dr. Kelleher is an exceptional professional. I've been seeing him for 10 years. He is highly skilled and genuinely interested in me as a person and my health needs. I've never felt rushed and he always takes the time to thoroughly answer my questions. Five huge stars."

The electronic scheduling did not work for me, no one responded, and after several days I called to fix things. That needs fixing! Actual service was very good within office.
