Dr. Kelly and his assistant are wonderful. I have scheduled a Sono Cine' almost every year for the past several years because this procedure outperforms mammograms and standard ultrasounds in detecting breast cancer in my humble opinion. I have had mammograms and standard ultrasounds over the years as well.
I highly recommend Dr. Kevin Kelly, M.D. and the Sono Cine' for anyone who wishes to be well-informed of their personal breast health and to have peace of mind whether or not cancer is detected.
Dr. Kelly has an excellent bedside manner and is very kind and thoughtful in how he explains the results of the Sono Cine' to each patient. He spends whatever time is required to explain the interpretation of the images as well as answer any questions the patient may have. He has 30+ years of experience and is very knowledgeable about offering an accurate and well-informed approach to each person's personal health issue.
Mammograms and regular ultrasounds have limitations and are dependent upon the skill of the technician to "catch" a suspicious lump or irregularity. The Sono Cine' covers every square inch of the targeted area and takes multiple images of each square inch. Nothing is missed. Visiting Dr. Kelly's office is among the best experiences I have ever had in dealing with screening and diagnostic procedures for breast cancer (and made the situation not so scary!!) He came highly recommended by another radiologist who worked at a well-known cancer center in Los Angeles. The doctor's words in Los Angeles to me were, 'You need to see Dr. Kevin Kelly, he is "the" breast cancer specialist and is the top expert in the field.' So, off I went to Dr. Kelly's office with my images (films back then, now many images are on CD).
Although Dr. Kelly was local (Pasadena and Venice), I would travel any distance to see Dr. Kelly and have his office perfom the Sono' Cine' and explain the results.
As far as available and known technology to date, this is the best combination I have found -- Dr. Kelly and the technology he pioneered, the Sono Cine' (which now has FDA approval!).
Thank you, Dr. Kelly and team for all of your help over the years. I have referred friends to you often. Thank you for not retiring and for staying on course in pioneering the Sono Cine' (and also getting it FDA approved).
