Kelly's Oriental Medicine
I am sorry the other people on here had such bad experiences, but I worked with Dr. Kelly for 7 months and thought she was great! I started meeting with her when I was 23 weeks pregnant with my second son, because there was a cyst on my ovary that had grown to 11cm and my midwives and physicians were suggesting surgery. There are a lot of risks to having surgery when you are pregnant, including going into early labor and losing your baby. I was not willing to take those risks. Dr. Kelly made me feel calm and confident in my decision to not have surgery. I met with Dr. Kelly 2 to 3 times for the first two weeks and then once a week after that for the rest of my pregnancy. I have a kidney disease that can complicate pregnancies as well. During my first pregnancy, I battled high blood pressure the whole time and ended up having to be on bed rest for the last month and a half of my pregnancy as a result. The swelling in my legs and feet were terrible. Dr. Kelly kept my swelling to a minimum and my blood pressure consistently low. When my baby was still breech at 37 weeks, she performed moxibustion that resulted in him turning. I gave birth to a healthy baby boy with no complications. I had another ultrasound after I gave birth and the cyst was less than 3 cm. I am sooooo glad I did not have surgery while I was pregnant. Meeting with Dr. Kelly was such a pleasant and enjoyable experience during my pregnancy, as opposed to being cut open, having to be on bed rest for weeks healing, and having to deal with any of the potential complications involved. When I read the other reviews, I had the following thoughts: 1) Dr. Kelly's strong Korean accent can cause a language barrier, which in brief interactions could be misunderstood. 2) Even though she has completed all required schooling in the US, she is a fourth generation acupuncturist from Korea, so her approach and techniques are likely going to be very different than Western born acupuncturists.
