Dr. Robert McKelvey, MD
I have been in the practice of child, adolescent, and adult psychiatry for over 37 years. In addition to clinical practice, I am involved in medical student teaching, and research into the effects of being a child born of war. Formerly Director of the Divisions of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at Baylor College of Medicine and OHSU, I am now Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry at OHSU. In addition, I am a Distinguished Life Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association and a Life Fellow of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. Prior to entering medicine, I was a Captain in the US Marine Corps, served in Vietnam, and received a Bronze Star with Combat "V".

- practiced with respect my son and myself without relevant Registration as required in Australia. Most of criteria below are not relevant to my contact with Mckelvey. He comes across as mild mannered ~ he is someone to be treated with great caution and to be avoided at all cost.
in Portland, OR |
I went through 4 or 5 different psychiatrists before I got to Dr. McKelvey. He's a very open listener and tries his best to understand. When helping me with my difficulties coping in school and at home, he remained non-judgemental and offered many very helpful insights into how I could change my behaviors to reduce tensions. Without a doubt, he has been the best psychiatrist I have visited.
Portland, OR |
Dr. McKelvey was a provider for my significant other and after several months not only did he not know anything about him at all except possibly one prescription of which he doubled at a random point. This including that the prescription was for help with nerve damage not any actual prescription for mental health. I do not believe this man should have a degree, let alone be treating patients.
