I have never had any bad experiences with Dr. Keljo and his staff. They always take great care of me, are prompt with returning my calls with any concerns or questions. I would highly recommend Dr. Keljo to anyone looking for a Gastro Specialist.

November 17, 2015

I liked this health care provider, and I would go back again.

October 29, 2015

Dr Keljo is very helpful with the issues my child has going on

October 27, 2015

As I have indicated previously, Dr. Keljo and his nurse, Denise are excellent health care providers and I am grateful to have them for my son. Many other health care experiences for myself, elderly mother and others have not lived up to the standards that Dr. Keljo maintains.

Dr. Keljo thoughtfully answers questions. He takes time to consider the best options for treatment and care. I believe he has a tremendous amount of knowledge, experience & expertise, yet he is humble and really listens to the patient and the parent.

Was a great experience and helped me alot

July 08, 2015

Dr. Keljo sincerely cared about my son and took good care of him! He understood the importance of being able to play baseball had in my son's life, even with his illness, and did not try to make light of this.

June 22, 2015

Despite a shedule that I am sure is very busy, Dr. Keljo has never made us feel like he was in a rush to be elsewhere and has always taken the time to discuss any issues that we raised. Dr. Keljo brings a perfect mix of professionalism and concern for my daughter's well being. After each visit, my daughter and I always remind eachother how lucky we are to have her in Dr. Keljo's care.

The doctor was nice and took the time to talk but seemed to be very uninformed on the area of celiac and the new things that are in discussions. He told me that he never had heard about arsenic in rice. I showed him the article from Consumer Reports and asked his opinion on the situation and he told me that he had never heard about it. I was shocked. Also, I asked what next steps he would do if his son had my son's medical history and he said that he would never have been able to put his son on a gluten free diet. I also asked him to talk with my son about eating slowly and taking small bites. The doctor's response was "you just have to eat slow and take small bites." I couldn't believe that he was just going to repeat what I said!
