About Me

As a Hepatologist at Ohio State, I treat patients with abnormal liver tests, hepatitis, cirrhosis of the liver and other liver diseases. I am honored to be part of this interesting field and help patients through a potentially stressful part of their lives. I strive to provide very thorough and attentive care with a focus on every patient's individual goals. Establishing a friendly, trusting relationship with my patients is extremely important.

My favorite part about working here at Ohio State is interacting with so many different people. I enjoy helping people to understand their condition and achieve better health.

When I’m not working, I like to spend time with my wife, family and friends. I enjoy running, cross country skiing, music and watching sports of all kinds.

Dr. Kelly is very intelligent. HE has a complete knowledge of my condition and available care. he always explains things to me and I never have felt judged. I am blessed to have been appointed such a young, smart and personable. The whole care team at OSU is awesome. I doubt I would get the same level of care elsewhere.
