Dr. Kelner's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Kelner "As a child, Dr. Evan Kelner accompanied his grandmother to the podiatrist's office because she had problems with her feet due to diabetes. Although he didn't understand the treatments he was watching, he never forgot the experience and his interest in podiatry began. After receiving his bachelor's degree from Muhlenberg College in 1987 he attended the Dr. William M. Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine in Chicago. Dr. Kelner returned to New Jersey for his residency at the Lyons VA Medical Center. He opened his practice in 1993 in his home town of Ocean Township and shortly after that he opened his second office in Toms River.

I was visiting New Jersey and needed to see a podiatrist. A friend recommended Dr. Kelner. The office was very neat and his staff was friendly and informative. If I need to see a doctor when I am in town I would definitely go back and I would recommend him to anyone needing foot care.
Thank you again for visiting our office and for taking the time to review our services.
