" Everyone was very nice and courtesy and helpful! "
" Jackie...great "
" Both the receptionist and the final person to whom I spoke (Jessica I believe. I don’t have my paperwork with me) were welcoming, responsive, conversational and assuring. When establishing positive customer/client relationships, those positions are of exceptional importance. Often, their importance is overlooked or handled rather mechanically. At Dr Kelly’s office, the first and last contacts were professionally managed and very positive. When contemplating the selection of a surgeon who will, with the use of a scalpel, cut open your eyes, one proceeds with great caution and long contemplation. In reviewing local physicians who specialize in this field, I found that Dr Kelly has a reputation of unparalleled ability and competence. My meeting with and examination by him proved his reputation to be well founded. His explanations were thorough and presented in a vernacular that was not too scientific and was easily understood. Resultantly, I am confident the surgery on my eyes will be performed by the most highly qualified and reputable physician. "

" all of the staff I had contact with were very professional "
" I have been going there for years and it's been excellent all these years. It feels great to be able to say that about a doctors office. It is rare. Thank you all. "
" The gal at the front desk was beyond helpful with an appointment for my mother. "
" Dr Smolenyak is first class "
" No, they are all excellent. Unfailingly courteous and cheerful. I always bring a book with me to read while sitting in the waiting room, but the wait is so brief that I never have time for more than a page or two. "
" excellent visit "

" Receptionist at Garner was very friendly and helpful. I watched her as she greeted each patient, explained what insurance did/did not pay for and esp help patients to get wrap around sunglasses on properly.

The office is a very nice environment (Brier Creek) and Dr. Kelly explained what he was going to do and put me right at ease. The procedure went quickly and my eye sight is so much better. "
" I had to postpone the appointment. I have a bad cold. "
" Everyone there is wonderful, as always. "
" The lady that did all of the pre test was one of best I have had there. Wish I had written her name down. I just remember she was from Pa but she was very through and concerned. I would take her every visit. "
" Great service. Great and wonderful Doctor and all the service were great. "
" Yes. Selene at the front desk. She was the person I spoke to when I called for the appointment and my positive impression of Kelly Eye Center began with her. She was warm and personable yet very professional. She put me at ease. (It's sad how often I have called a professional office only to have the person at reception be abrupt and off-putting. ) Selene was just the opposite and my feeling was one of being welcomed. And each of the other staff members I encountered continued in that vein of warmth and welcoming and also professional. I'll be returning for a follow up in a few months and I will look forward to that. I believe I have joined a group of professionals who truly care about the individuals who seek their services. "

We were treated like family from the time we walked in, especially by Brittany whom we have known for several years. We were both treated with the utmost respect, courtesy, and personal concern. Although we now live in Chapel Hill close to Pittsboro, we simply wouldn't think of going anywhere else for our eye care. "

Serene send me paperwork by email and I returned it by email which was great. I emailed Serene later to let her know my dad was hard of hearing and has just recently lost his wife. Apparently the staff was told he was hard of hearing because all who did testing spoke very loudly and were very patience. My dad has a harder time with female voices but due to them talking loudly he could understand. Our wait time was very short. Everyone was very polite. I was very impressed. You are an example others should follow. "

" Best medical office I have ever been in. Runs like a well oiled machine. Nurses are very courteous, Check-in was a breeze. Dr Kelly is great. "
" Jaci did the majority of my appt and explained things very well. She listened to what I said so that she could give me the best information for making decisions (glasses, contacts, etc.) Dr. Smolynek (sp?) is a great asset to Kelly Eye Center. I have been his patient for over 10 years and always get the best advice, analysis and instructions for all my eye problems. It is really nice to be able to see the same doctor, it gives such continuity of care. The staff in general is always professional and very courteous. They really make you feel comfortable to be there. The administrative staff is always on the ball, my info is at the desk when I finish with the doctor and then the admins take over and explain follow up dates, etc. If I had any suggestions it would be that your computer system be upgraded to send appt notices electronically and for cash payments it would be nice to get a quick printout of what I paid for, for tax purposes.
