“Dr. Khelemsky brings the “art” of medicine to a whole new level. She is a perfectionist that took her time with my procedure. I couldn’t be more pleased with my results. My surgery was on a Friday morning, and Dr. Khelemsky came in on both Saturday and Sunday to ensure that I was healing appropriately and my pain was being managed… I can’t tell you how pleased I am with the results even now.”
