Earl S. Dr. Timothy. A. Kelsch, a very thorough first class ENT, whom was highly recommended by the very best Neurologist at Barrow Brain and Spine. My condition was Severe weekly nosebleed (epistaxes). Problem is that we couldn't find exactly where it was coming from. The first visits from other ENT outfits determined that it was deep in to the nose area and recommended a nose Embolization. The Embolization process was performed twice from the crew at CIC, and did not quite do the job. We started our journey with Dr. Kelsch at Valley ENT and systematically evaluated my notes that were developed over a year. Just to put everything in perspective, Dr. Kelsch was the first DR that ever performed an in depth endoscopy of my internal nose. An area was discovered that showed a large inflamed blood vessel that was believed to be the culprit. the area was so inconspicuous, that Dr Kelsch with a camera even almost missed. Dr Kelsch performed an in office process that has healed and held 5 mo.

Dr. Kelsch is an amazing ENT doctor and surgeon! I was referred to him after two different highly regarded ENT surgeons in the valley told me that the mass in my neck was "not dangerous" and "not big enough for removal." I had spent almost a year with it growing larger by the day. I was suffering daily with pain and breathing issues because of the size and location. I was told by another ENT office that Dr. Kelsch was the doctor to see if you had a complicated case and they were right! Not only did he assure me that it should be removed, but also scheduled me for surgery within 2 weeks of my first appointment. After removal he ordered biopsies and found a hidden auto-immune disorder as well. I just can't say enough great things about this doctor, but I am forever grateful for how he listened, took the issue seriously, and the results speak for themselves!

I'll start with - I don't leave reviews very often. They have to earn my review (very good or very bad). Have been seeing Dr. Kelsch for past year and a half. Since under his care I have gone from weekly/daily epistaxis (bloody noses) to NONE in over 18 months. Had septoplasty, turbinate reduction surgery in June. 6 weeks out and already a world of difference. Despite only slight allergy symptoms (stuffiness) I have not needed any OTC or Rx allergy meds in 2 months - probably a first in 30 years to go that long! Dr. K is direct, efficient and effective. His staff are responsive and efficient as well (thank you Paulina et al).

Dr. Kelsh and his staff are amazing! My three year old needed her tonsils removed due to prolonged strep throat and I couldn’t had asked for a greater experience with Dr. Kelsch. I was very nervous about the surgery due to her being so young but he was very informative and very knowledgeable . He answered all my questions and made not only myself but my daughter feel very comfortable and at ease. If your looking for an ENT for your little one or yourself I highly recommend Dr. Kelsch!

Dr. Kelsch lives up to his exceptional ratings! I had major sinus surgery and was amazed that I had no post-surgery pain. He is so skilled, which is most important to me, but he's also very personable and seems genuinely interested in his patients' well-being. Lots of great follow-up by him and his office.

Dr. Kelsch and his staff have been one of the best experiences I have had, especially during a very scary time. I had a surgery that was not normal and Dr. Kelsch made it as painless and easy at it could possibly be. From the original diagnosis to my stint in the hospital and post surgery Dr. Kelsch and his staff were there every step of the way. Even came to see to me in the hospital the morning I was discharged. I could not recommend Dr. Kelsch and his amazing staff anymore!

I would recommend Dr. Kelsch to my family and friends without hesitation. As a matter of fact I called my son to recommend Dr. Kelsch. My surgery was tricky but had complete faith in Dr. Kelsch as with my son, his surgery would be tricky too.

Dr. Kelsch is the most caring and compassionate doctor that I have ever met and I am actually sad that I do not see him anymore. He always spent time with me to make sure that all of my questions and concerns were addressed and he was always available over the phone if I needed to speak with him soon. I have never written a review online before but I felt that it was necessary given just how appreciative I am for Dr. Kelsch, his office staff, and his surgical team.

Had excellent care and experience with Dr. Kelsch. He took time out of his personal schedule to perform my tonsillectomy. He knew the procedure needed to be done ASAP and he acted on it. Great supporting staff and minimal wait to see the doctor. Would recommend to family/friends or anyone looking for great care.

Very poor scheduling person - she simply refuses to speak up. When ask to speak a little louder, she is suddenly audible enough, then quickly returns to barely audible. Very frustrating since I am hard of hearing. What a poor choice of person for an Ear specialist.
