Dr. Kelt is a lifesaver. He got my bipolar under control, and he has always been there whenever I have needed him. Everyone in his office staff, including Christie and Liz, are angels. Especially during this pandemic, Dr Kelt has made telecalls to me, and he takes care of my medication ussues. He has always been there for me.

Nancy – Feb 20, 2021
While I think Dr. Kelt is a good guy, I cannot recommend his practice. His office is impossible to get someone on the phone with, and I got off of a schedule because I did not make a follow-up appointment and could not get anyone on the phone. As far as him, while he was good for prescribing, I felt like he told me the same stories over and over again and was more focused on educating his students than helping me. Cannot recommend, sadly.

I saw Dr. Kelt on Tuesday, Nov.19. He's been my Psychiatrist since Sept. 2001. I've had no issues with Him. His staff are on point & the atmosphere is non-toxic.

Daniel hollins, jr. – Nov 21, 2019
He diagnosed me with ADHD. I started on the medicine he prescribed to me after he asked me many questions. He has changed my life for the better. I really wish I found him sooner. I’m 49 years old and am so grateful that he found the correct medication for me. I highly recommend him. Thank you Dr. Kelt!

I first saw Dr. Kelt in 2007 when I thought I was going crazy. He let me say everything I needed to and never interrupted or rushed me. He listened to everything I said, then told me my diagnosis and explained it to me. He helped me see that none of it was my fault and I wasn't crazy. When I was pregnant he made sure to manage my meds safely for my baby. He helped me through postpartum depression as well and many other difficult things in my life. He is the kindest doctor and I trust him 110%.

I have been seeing Dr. Kelt for many years and truly appreciate his personality and skill in treating patients. Dr. Kelt truly listens to his patients and responds to their needs and requests. I highly recommend him above all other doctors (five or six I’ve seen in the past) in his field.

Dr. Kelt is fantastic - the office is not. I have tried many times to get RXs refilled and nobody answers the phone or returns emails. On the brink of leaving, but stick around because he's a great doctor.

Dr. Kelt is probably one of the best P-docs I have ever had. He is compassionate and actually takes time to listen. He also takes the time to explain in length when you have questions. Really, hands down, the best P-doc I have ever had. However, he only gets 3/5 because the people running his office are terrible. They are totally disorganized and never return phone calls. This is mental health and you need to know that you can get a hold of the Dr.if it is an emergency.
