Dr. Kelanic was very thorough with his questions, and identified the problem quickly. He described the purpose, risks, and long-term benefits of the proposed treatment, and then allowed me to make the decision whether or not I want to follow through with the treatment. Three things stood out from my visit with Dr. Kelanic: (1) he was a very nice man and created a comfortable environment, (2) his explanations were very thorough and clearly articulated, and (3) I was very happy with the procedure and treatment he provided. I would highly recommend Dr. Kelanic to anyone who was in a similar situation as I was.
