About Michael Keefe, MD

My goal is to provide the same outstanding care for my patients that I would for my family or myself. The practice of medicine allows me to combine my strong interest in science and academic medicine with my enjoyment of interacting with people in a manner that improves their quality of life and well-being. In addition to being board-certified by the American Board of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, I am also board-certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. I strive to provide the same outstanding care for my Sharp patients as I would desire for my family or myself, as both my family and myself are Sharp patients! Outside of work, I enjoy cycling, sailing, swimming, rowing, skiing, photography and spending as much time as possible with my family.

Dr. Keefe treated me for basal/squamous cell cancer in my ear. With the amount of cancer I had, he had to take a graft from my neck to repair my inner ear. It's been a little over two weeks and it is healing up amazingly well! Dr. Keefe is truly a gifted surgeon and ALWAYS has the patient's best interest at heart. I've been to other surgeons for MOHS surgery and they have been very good, but to be honest and in my opinion, he is the best when it comes to facial reconstruction.

Dr. Keefe is an exceptional physician who truly has unbelievable bed side manners. He really does care about the person who is sitting in his chair or on his table and looks for innovative ways to make the outcome looks it best when he may not have the ideal situation at hand. I have been fortunate or unfortunate to have required/chosen his services back in 2000 when we were both in the Navy. After retirement in 2006 I started going to various civilian hospitals over the past 20 years due to multiple basal and squamous cell cancers around my ears, eyes scalp and face with less than stellar results. Yet again about 2 years ago I was faced with a large basal/squamous cell cancer on my forehead/temple area, I decided to see If now retired, Dr. Keefe might be in the area and to my surprise he remained in San Diego. For me, I trust his expert opinion and judgement above all others, no kidding. Dr. Keefe is truly a remarkable person and surgeon, I honestly can't say enough good things about him.
