Testimonial

  • "I did see Dr. Bush because 15 years ago my mother-in-law recommended him. He has now retired but I see Dr. Kellam. He is wonderful. The people I have seen there are very professional. Dr. Kellam did my cataract surgery for both eyes and I couldn't be more pleased. Staff at the eye center (which has moved to 2460 Patterson-in Frontier Plaza) and the surgical center (which remains at 1000 Wellington) are thorough, fast, friendly, compassionate and right there to answer any concerns you might have. Highly recommend Dr. Kellam."
