Dr. Eric A Kelts has the following 2 specialties
A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.
A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

Beware. We had seen dr. Kelts, had a brain scan. called for 2 weeks, left at least 20 messages for them to. Return my call to make an appt to get results . finally got a return call saying they had been busy and short staffed! Promised a return call the next am with results .it did not happen. He seemed knowledgable etc, but he is not there for you this was a brain ct for a patient with a brain tumor. Seriously!!! No retuned calls, still no report from him
This office is the most unreliable office I have ever dealt with. The doctor has refused to turn over my medical records to my attorney after repeated requests over the past 4 months. The office does not allow me to talk to Dr. Kelts directly or return my calls. I have been given nothing but lip service from this office regarding my records and they are not abiding by HIPPA regulations in regards to giving me my records. I would not recommend this office ever.
After several frustrating months with other neurologists, my primary found Dr. Kelts. I originally saw Dr. Kelts for a sleep disorder that was complicated by epilepsy, which is why I wanted to see him because finding a neurologist who specializes in sleep is apparently hard to find in the Denver area. Go figure. Anyways, the first thing that stuck out to me and my uncle, who accompanied me, was his outside the box approach to my condition. For instance, he suggested the Zeo sleep monitor, which he admitted was "unscientific" and all that jazz, and explained it would give me a larger picture in the long term than an expensive overnight study or hospital stay could provide me. Before Dr. Kelts had mentioned it, I had never heard of it, but now it's a tool I use to monitor my sleep patterns. No, I don't use it to detect or diagnose nighttime seizures, but it sure gives me insight to what's going on during the night. In addition to the Zeo sleep monitor, he also respects my wishes to be on as little medication as possible. He prescribed a med that helps me sleep better and a med I never would have thought would help to improve my daytime fatigue (I only take 1/2 dose). It keeps me working and brings in paychecks. If it stops working or I have problems, he doesn't hesitate to help and adjust. Given my good experience with my sleep, I thought I wold push my luck with my eyes-- I asked if he could do an eye exam because I also have a difficult prescription. For me, going to an optometrist is worse than going to a dentist because a typical optometrist doesn't understand my eyes and my accommodation abilities. They always resort to telling me to "guess which one is clearer: one or two." I can never tell the difference. Last year, a well-known Lasik specialist first informed me about my accommodation abilities, how it interferes with my eye exams, and why its necessary for my eyes to be dilated for accurate prescriptions. Unfortunately, I was not a candidate for Lasik, and they could not sell me the prescription they got for my eyes during the consultation. When I tell optometrists they need to dilate my eyes, they disagree. I didn't need to explain to Dr. Kelts. He knew!! He dilated my eyes and gave me an awesome prescription I can actually see out of!! Finally!! Some patients may have complained about scheduling, but I believe it is because Dr. Kelts may find it necessary to take extra time to fully understand his patients and give them the proper treatment. At least, that was my experience. I can't tolerate doctors who treat their patients like a checklist they have to get through. I feel better knowing my doctors actually care and are giving me, and their other patients, the time they deserve for optimal treatment.
I was referred to Dr. Kelts by another eye dr. My first appt was rescheduled for three weeks out from the original date. Then my second appt was also rescheduled. I had to wait 20 min to be seen the first time and over 30 the second time. He verbally agreed to call me with my results so I didn't have to spend another co-pay to come in and wait forever then get tests results. I still haven't heard from him several months later...
