Specialties

Dr. John McKelvey has the following 2 specialties

  • Anesthesiology

    Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
    Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
    Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

Made me laugh when I felt like crying

I am 19 and I was the last patient of the day and I think Dr McKelvey noticed I was nervous. He told me a funny story his wife had shared with him earlier in the day about their little boy and showed me the cutest video on his phone of his baby daughter laughing out loud and dancing. It cheered me up so much. He's very personable and I thought it was sweet how proud he is of his family. It made the whole doctor with a needle side of him seem less stressful for me. Thank you dr mckelvey for making me feel better before my surgery.

Dr McKelvey is the BEST anesthesiologist

Dr McKelvey provided the anesthesia for my son's surgery recently. He was amazing with him. Dr McKelvey showed him pictures of his own small children and even talked about playing Legos and Xbox with his own little boy, which put my son at ease. When they wheeled off to the OR, my son and the doctor were laughing, so it made mom and dad feel much better. Glad my son will not need more surgery but if he does, I hope he has Dr McKelvey again.

Wonderful!

What a treat to have such a caring, patient doctor in this day and age. Most doctors seemed rushed, but Dr McKelvey made me feel as if I was his only patient. He should teach a class on what we older people call a good "Bedside Manner". Anyone who gets Dr McKelvey as a patient is very fortunate.
