Dr. Thomas D Kaelin Jr has the following 2 specialties
- Pulmonary Disease
A pulmonologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to the lungs and respiratory tract.
These specialists are similar to critical care specialists in that their patients often require mechanical ventilation to assist their breathing.
Pulmonologists diagnose and treat patients with conditions such as asthma, cystic fibrosis, asbestosis, pulmonary fibrosis, lung cancer, COPD, and emphysema. Exposure and inhalation of certain toxic substances may also warrant the services of a pulmonologist.
Some of the tools and tests pulmonologists use to diagnose a patient are a stethoscope in order to listen for abnormal breathing sounds, chest X-rays, CT scans, blood tests, bronchoscopy, and polysomnography.
- 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.

I sent Dr. Kaelin's office a medical form for completion for my elderly father. The form was clear. It was very important and critical the form be completed in its entirety. The form was not only returned incomplete, what little was filled out wasn't a true presentation of my dad, but it wasn't even signed! How unprofessional and uncaring. The recipient of the form stated in her 20+ years of experience, this was the poorest report she had ever received from a physician's office. She stated she wouldn't/couldn't even submit the form in the condition it was submitted in -- it caused more harm than good. It's obvious Dr. Kaelin did not have my dad's best interest for care in mind and is unconcerned about his patients and their well-being. I'm very concerned about the level of competency and care Dr. Kaelin is providing to my dad. I will be seeking another physician to transfer my dad to. I gave 1 star, but it really should be 1/2 of 1 star!
