Ratings for Dr. Julie Kelch
I have been going to Dr. Kelch for almost 20 years. My three children have seen her since birth. We think she is the best doctor and love her staff. They are always kind and timely. There have been very few times that we have had to wait and with four us we have been seen a lot. I like that Dr. Kelch listens and tries to give an accurate diagnosis rather than just writing a script. We feel so blessed to have such a good Dr. and staff. I don't know what we would do if we had to go to another doctor.
As many have said, great bedside manner, pays attention to latest research, explains things very well, etc. I'll add that she is one terrific spotter of skin cancers. Nursing staff excellent. I've never had a problem with receptionists/office staff; but I expect to wait at the Dr.'s office, and undersand that I might have to stand at the counter while staff talk to patients on the phone. I've always had my phone calls answered efficiently. Love both nurse practitioners, which allows me to be seen when Dr. Kelch is booked.
Dr. Kelch has been treating myself and my kids for some 20+ years. She is an amazing, caring, intelligent doctor who works hard for her patients. I have had a couple unique disease states and she has diagnosed them quickly and treated them efectively. I cannot say enough good things about her, I am indebted to her for her treatment of myself and my family.
Had an appointment for annual exam for 12n. Didn't see the nurse practioner til 1:30pm. Sat in the exam room for an hour. Didn't go over my lab results. Staff at the front were mocking patients who called on the phone in front of me at checkout. Need I say more. Thinking of finding new primary.
Dr.Kelch is a good listener and on top of things. I've been going for years and rarely have I waited excessively. Her nurse practitioner-Fabulous! Her front desk ladies-AWESOME....but over worked as calling in is VERY difficult. Treated great once there though! Insurance/billing-not so great. Overall I recommend Dr.Kelch to everyone!!
CHP - She is okay. She doesn't relate well to youth. The staff is aweful. They are so rude. The nurse that calls with results, Dana, acts like you are an idiot if you have a question. Kathy Odom, one of the nurse practitioners, is awesome. Remembers you and you life... very friendly, laid back, and knowledgable. Very good bed side manner.
The staff at Dr. Kelch's office is the worst staff I have come across in a long time. I always get put on hold and usually they forget I am on hold. They are rude and act like they have better things to do than to answer phone calls. On the other hand, Dr. Kelch is a very knowledable and attentive doctor and i would recommend her. The reception staff at her office is so bad i would condsider switching doctors. I have the same experience everytime i call.
