Dr. Robert F Kelliher has the following 2 specialties
A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted.

- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

He is a great doctor
I had surgery from another doctor. After my recovery and prescription for recovery was exhausted as written, I called the office of Kelliher. I had been on a long term script with him. The person in office decided, I couldn't have script and I shouldn't be done with other doctors prescription. I explained in detail why I should get my script filled as usual at this point by the Dr. Kelliher. She told me I'm not getting prescription , and she was done helping me. I wrote a letter and n detail stating all facts and phone call. I then received a letter in the mail stating it would be best if I move onto another doctor. The employee obviously didn't tell the truth of the whole incident to the Doctor. Do not put your life in these people's hands.
This was the worst doctors visit I think I have ever experienced. I have had stomach issues for several years, and finally made an appointment with Dr. Kelliher from the recommendation of a friend. From the moment I met Dr. Kelliher it was downhill. When I started to describe my symptoms/experiences and what I had been told in the past he repeatedly cut me off and told me that it either didn't matter or he didn't care, those being his exact words. I became so frustrated and humiliated by Dr. Kelliher that I actually started crying. Dr. Kelliher didn't even so much as offer me a tissue, I had to get up and get one for myself after he asked me if I was going to be okay. After telling me the standard IBS (which shouldn't be resorted to unless all other diagnoses have been ruled out, and they haven't) and that I didn't need further testing because I am too young to need it, he prescribed me a medication and gave a VERY brief explanation of it. After dealing with his office staff scheduling me another appointment for 3-4 weeks away (why? I have no idea, he gave me no advice and no reason to come back) I obliged simply to get out of the office and on my way. I later looked up the medication he had prescribed, which turns out was for Anxiety related Gastrointestinal issues. I am sure that stress plays a role in my issues, but I refuse to believe that is the sole instigator. All in all, I DO NOT recommend this Doctor. Go somewhere in Boston.
