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 has gone above and beyond. he encouraged me to send any questions, which I did via the My Health app, he has responded to each thoroughly and expediently !!He is also very understanding that, to the newbie (me), this is stressful and puts test results in perspective.

    He went over everything with me. We discussed all of my past history, as this was my first visit. He explained the treatment he recommended. He ordered lab work.

    Dr. Kelly listened, and agreed to see me every six months as my previous provider, Dr. Levin had done for many years.

    We must give a shout out to Dr. Kelly. I am 60 & my wife is 68 and at no time in our lives have we dealt with a doctor as compassionate, understanding and willing to work with us. The world needs more doctors like him!
