"Excellent primary care physician for both my wife and I. Always answers with no BS and always asks question s that are relevant to our age and any issues we are having. We have been through several doctors in Temecula/Murrietta but Kelly is great. Always respectful and caring and have never had an issue with his staff.Gary"
"Have been seeing Dr Kelly for almost 17 years. For ins reasons I’ve had leave on occasion but have seen how horrible other practices treat their patients. I have referred many friends and associates and will continue to do so."
"I have been a patient for almost 13 years Dr. Mc Kerahan is a very caring and compassionate Dr. I would recommend him to anyone."

"Thank you Dr. Kelly McKerehan for your great care and skills and being a Jesus Christ loving Physician. I refer everyone I know to visit your office for care. Lord Jesus bless you and yours always ;-)"
