Dr. James Kelling has been my internist for more than a decade. He is a superb diagnostician with a warm and gracious personality who never appears rushed or impatient as he focuses on a patient's concerns and is extraordinarily articulate and proactive in explaining his diagnoses. He and his colleague, Dr. Carmen Kelling, are highly trained in their specialties of internal medicine, pulmonology, and sleep medicine, and have organized a practice that is efficient, patient-friendly, up-to-date.

Highly recommend Dr. Kelling to anyone with a sleep related problem. He actually listens to the patient and is through in his explanations back to the patients. His overnight sleep study is top rated and the staff is well trained and also has exceptional communication skills. The entire discovery of how sleep apnea had so negatively impacted our lives turned into such a wonderful life changing event. We are so grateful to Dr. Kelling.
