    Bio

    Dr. Keller is a native of Louisiana. He spent a large part of his early
    childhood living and being educated in East Africa, as his father moved
    the family to Kenya to complete his Ph.D. in Political Science, and then
    to Ethiopia during the revolution so that he could research Ethiopian
    politics firsthand. He completed high school in Berkeley, California and
    then attended the University of California in Los Angeles for his undergraduate
    studies, and subsequently Duke University School of Medicine where he
    graduated with honors.


    Dr. Keller completed his general surgery internship, residency and research
    fellowship at Tulane School of Medicine, where he participated actively
    in various experimental and clinical research projects. His thoracic and
    cardiovascular surgery residency was completed at the Carolinas Heart
    Institute (Sanger Clinic)in Charlotte, North Carolina. Dr. Keller is board
    certified in cardiovascular and thoracic surgery.


    Dr. Keller is author or co-author of more than 40 scholarly publications,
    presentations, book chapters and abstracts, and has participated in countless
    experimental and clinical studies. Thus, he is intimately aware of and
    involved in the application and development of cutting edge technology,
    and dedicated to providing access to the best that medicine has to offer
    for his patients. He has also received scores of prestigious awards including:
    the Tulane School of Medicine Owl Club Award of Excellence in Teaching,
    the Robicsek Traveling Fellowship (Lahr, Germany) and numerous others.
    He maintains membership in the American College of Surgeons, The Society
    of Thoracic Surgeons, The Southern Thoracic Surgeons Association, and
    numerous other professional organizations.


    His professional interests include valvular heart disease, minimally invasive
    valve surgery and endovascular surgery for aortic aneurysms. As a devoted
    father and family man, Dr. Keller has long had interest in reaching out
    to children in his community in an effort to show them that the world
    is much bigger than the one they see every day. Over the years he has
    been involved in various activities and fund raising efforts including
    associations with The Boys and Girls Clubs of America and Climbing for
    Kids, both charities that inspire kids to test their limits.

    Ya'll was very courteous. Didn't take all that long. And I would recommend him to anyone. I don't know him that well because that's the first time I've ever been to him, but he seems very, very pleasant.

    Dr.Keller and his staff are excellent. I might be a little biased since I believe they saved my life. Great bedside manner from the doctor and both of his nurse practitioners. If anyone I know asks me for a heart surgeon I will definitely recommend.

    To give us a copy of the records and date that you know, tell us what we could do. I show us because this is a new knowledge and we don't understand it and to be able to put it in writing what they're telling us that would help a little bit more but we do appreciate what was done and I do rate him a 9. That's it. Thank you.

    Overall I experienced a pleasant experience at my first appointment with Dr. Keller. The only issue was the extended wait time in the examining room. I was called back promptly, but then waited at least 45 minutes to see the Doctor. However, once the Doctor met with me, he made ample time to consult and answer my questions. Thank you!

    After being with a group of physicians since I was 8 yrs old, NEVER getting any better, it is absolutely amazing to see doctors who actually care about their patients!!! BRG has done in a few short weeks what others could not do in 50 years!!!!!! I'm looking forward to my continued care with the BRG group!!!! Thank you for putting a patients care above a paycheck!

    During the wait to see the doctor, I observed the receptionist staying on her cell phone checking Instagram. For almost 2 hours. I guess she had nothing else to do. This had nothing to do with my visit...just an observation
