Dr. Kettlehut and all the staff at the 84th location are wonderful. I've been seeing Dr. K for a year and half for both allergy shots and asthma. Staff are so nice and Dr. K is funny and efficient. Love this place.

Dr. Kettelhut never makes me feel rushed during a visit. I was a mess when I first saw him and over the years he has turned me into a healthy person. My asthma and allergies are now under control. He has a great sense of humor and I feel we are good friends as well. I have recommended him to friends who have also been pleased with his care.
