Dr Kelsall is very very helpful in specific and personal to my needs... help when I need it....gave me supporting suggestions appropriate to my challenge. His staff were very helpful I live on the Sunshine Coast and the travel down (which is challenging for me) was more than well worth it!!!

Dr Kelsall helped fix a painful nodule in my finger. He is literally one of the most charming doctors I have ever encountered and we are blessed to have him in Vancouver. He also surrounds himself with staff who are just as pleasant as he is. Smart man!

I had really high hopes for Dr Kelsall. I was sorely disappointed as I left my second appointment in tears, feeling totally disrespected. My first appointment went great - we did the schirmers test and the saliva test, both showed dryness but not severe enough for a Sjögren's diagnosis. The dr and his assistant were kind and friendly. Dr kelsall asked if I had celiac, to which I replied no doctor tested me while I was eating gluten. He asked if I could eat it for a month, to which i replied that it makes me so sick, I wouldn't be able to function for an entire month. He countered, asking if I could eat it for 3 days. I agreed. Got all the blood testing done and went back for my second appointment. His assistant asked if I had any additional symptoms, but she didn't even let me finish explaining everything. I had to cut her off to list off more. Finally dr kelsall comes in and says I don't have Sjögren's, he doesn't mention any other possibilities like lupus, and dismissed a positive test result as being normal on a bell curve. He says I don't have celiac. I find out later that telling a patient to eat it for just 3 days will not show anything on a test. It was pointless torture he put me through for what reason, I don't know. Then he tells me I'm just depressed and I need more exercise. The last time a doctor said I was "just depressed", I was in hospital 2 weeks later diagnosed with ulcerative colitis. I ask about my seizures and he says that's not his specialty, and was really dismissive. I begin to cry, and he says "oh I hate making women cry", then says he has to go, but I'm welcome to come back if more symptoms develop. I felt utterly dismissed and disrespected. Even if I don't have an illness that he handles, some empathy and compassion would have gone a long way. I'm thankful I was recommended to see a general internist for a holistic approach from someone else. It would have made a huge difference if Dr Kelsall didn't just dismiss me as being depressed, when I have far reaching symptoms that are clearly more serious than depression.

After years without answers, my body and spirit were so battered that when I ended up in hospital in isolation for 10 days I was only glad of the rest. My confusing and severely painful symptoms left me beyond desperate. I had almost given up all hope. Dr. Kelsall was the first Dr to provide a diagnosis for my rare disease. He quite literally saved my life and started treatment that gave me hope and my mobility back. I was only 37 years old. Dr Kelsall spent time with me and did much investigation and research - he worked very hard to help me. He is very professional yet his compassion shines through! He is a superior doctor - the very best!
