Dr. Julie A Kelch has the following 1 specialty
- Family Medicine
A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

Dr. Kelch is thorough, with great bedside manners. She cares about our overall health as well as the diseases that make her show up at her office. When she is not available, she has two tremendous PAs. One of the special things about her is that she is great at recognizing skin cancers (sometimes better even than some of our local dermatologists).
Dr. Kelch has been my family Dr. since 1992. My health has slowly deteriorated over that time, primarily due to my own lack of appropriate self care. She has always been highly encouraging about what should be done, gives positive reinforcement for improvements shown, tests when needed, has a conservative perspective, and has a really good ARNP and PA when she is not available to be seen. There is also an MSW counselor available for private counseling, if needed and desired. My experiences with the nurses and front office staff have always been positive. As with other physicians, afternoon appointments are prone to a wait time, while morning appointments usually don't have any, or little, wait time. When I married, she readily accepted my new husband as a new patient. When he died from leukemia after a 41 day diagnosis, she was the only one of his doctors that accurately predicted that he only had about 3 days of life remaining. called him at home as he was dying and also called me at home after his death. I have found her to be highly knowledgeable, compassionate, nurturing, caring, and supportive -- everything I'd want in a family Dr. I highly recommend her as a family practitioner.
Dr. Kelch is a great and knowledgeable doctor. She is real compassionate and caring and her diagnosis are right on point. However, i am big on customer services and her nursing staff esp (Beverly) has the worse attitutude. If you ever need to talk to a nurse at her office ask for Christina or Bev Ann. They are really nice and will explain things to you if needed. I
