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."

When I called July 6, 2019, to make an appointment your office checked and they said they still covered services for HMO for Blue Cross Blue Shield. About one week before my appointment someone called and said that as of July 1st your office no longer took HMO Blue Cross Blue Shield.

Check in was fast and efficient. Waiting area was clean and comfortable. Wait for doctor was very short and treatment was great. Was in and out in less time than I expected. Doctor was excellent.

When in the room with the nurse she has several questions, I understand there are questions to update i.e. medication, allergies, etc. to verify, but when asked about family history or any skin cancer in the family, this should have already been known. My only thought was when I changed my last name, my information was not carried over in my file about my family history of skin cancer. That being said I felt as if the Doctor did not recognize who I was from not having this information, I do not expect them to know me when I only come in once a year, but my file should inform the Doctor. Overall my concern was maybe I was not looked at as closely as I should have been considering past visits have been longer.
