"If I could give ZERO, I most certainly would! This “dr” if that’s what he is lying to himself & saying he is, has RUINED my rectum! My rectocele was grade 2 and now grade 3 WITH full pelvic prolapse! I am in pain every single day, stomach pains with bloating that comes out of nowhere, and I can no longer have bowel movements on my own- I have to rely on the use of enemas just to get my stools to get close to the “path” in my rectum where he supposedly “fixed” the prolapse but instead created a hole that has excess skin from the supposed “wall” he created?! This is not living! This is a living HELL. Be advised that this man is NOT a real surgeon and is lying to practices just to get in! Please, if you ever get referred to JAMES MARK KIELY, day NO & run as fast as you can, save whatever body parts you have left, before you end up botched on an operating table! I pray he gets caught. It’s so immoral. "

"He made me a hemorrhoid removal surgery in January and after that I don’t have a quality of life because of the pain Im having. There’s something wrong with the surgery and right now since everything is closed there is nothing I can do just live with my pain. I don’t know what he really did to me."

"I sincerely believe that this man should not be practicing medicine. He appears to have simply abandoned his ColumbiaDoctors practice in January 2020, without any notice to his patients. (In my case, he left when I was in the middle of the prep work he himself had ordered for major surgery.) Wherever he surfaces next, I can only advise prospective patients (and prospective employers) to approach him with extreme caution. "

Data Transparency and Trust: Understanding WebMD Doctor Listings and Reviews

We know that finding the right doctor or provider is important to your health. That’s why we want to ensure you have confidence in the provider profiles and listings you see on WebMD Care. Our provider data is sourced from the physicians themselves as well as publicly available databases. Any doctor or provider who claims their profile by verifying themselves can update their information and provide additional data on their specialties, education, accepted insurances, conditions they treat, and procedures they perform.

All the physician and provider reviews on WebMD Care are provided by users just like you. Knowing these reviews provide insight into how other patients feel about a doctor, we maintain internal policies and protocols to ensure the quality and accuracy of all reviews. Providers are not able to remove or modify reviews on their own. Reviews can only be removed after an internal review by our customer service team.

We value your input and encourage you to reach out to our support team if you encounter any issues.
