Specialties

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.

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.

  • Neurology

Bipolar

I have been seeing Dr Kelt for about 20 years. He is the only Dr that diagnosed my bipolar. He is very smart. If a new medication comes available, he will ask if I'm willing to try it. It took trying many medicines before finding one that worked. He was very patient. He always takes time to ask how things are going and if I have had any mood changes. I ask many questions. He is sweet and shows concern. As far as appointments, I make them while I'm there. I have had to wait, but he. Is busy and he does give me the time I need. As far as money goes, there have been times that I didn't have all of it. He let me send it when I got it. I have recommended him many times.

Four Stars

Once you learn the routines of his office (which are you can never be late but he will always be late), then everything's fine. I have complex comorbid disorders, but Dr Kelt has helped for more than 13 years.

Been with him for years

I have always liked Dr. Kelt. He is easy to work with and after all these years (10+) he knows me pretty well. A very gentle personality and manner. It can be a bit hard dealing with his front office, but then, I think that is true with just about any doctor these days with a busy practice.
