Amazing doctor and staff! I was in an accident and feel lucky to have gotten on her rotation at Hackensack UMC. Her staff was always friendly and caring. They were quick to return phone calls and help in any way they could. Dr. Keller did an amazing job fixing me up. She took her time explaining what was going on and answering any and all my questions. She took the worst experience of my life and made it easier. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an above and beyond doctor!!!!

She is the best doctor I’ve ever known.. I had a very traumatic bone injury from childbirth and thought I would never find a solution to it but ever since I found Dr. Keller she made me feel very optimistic, hopeful and comfortable under her care. She gets everything I said and doesn’t feel like she’s rushing when she talk to you. The staff were incredibly helpful and very nice too. I would highly recommend her.

Dr. Keller took over a difficult case where another orthopedist was uncomfortable, a trauma case. I have full confidence with her deliberative consideration. She has a very reassuring bed side manner. I will not be surprised if she is soon the ortho/trauma surgeon to go to in Bergen County. Very nice woman and other orthos tell me that she is a very sharp woman. All of my doctors like working with her. A+

I took my 84 year old mother to see Dr Keller about her fractured wrist. Dr Keller was very kind and patient. She took her time to explain to my mom about her fracture and about the healing process. The doctors staff was very nice too.

We came thru the emergency room for my mother who suffered a hip fracture after a fall. Dr Keller was truly wonderful from the moment she met my mom until we were discharged. Not only is she a brilliant doctor (how lucky we were that she was on call the day this happened) but she is warm, kind and caring. Thank you so much, Dr. Keller.
