As a child, Dr. Kevin Keller hung around his
father’s minor league baseball teams and
was fascinated by the work of the athletic
trainers. That experience was part of what
encouraged him to enter the medical field.

because he felt it was an area he could
make a real difference. He enjoys that he
is able to see patients make substantial
progress with proper treatment. Dr. Keller
has been practicing allergy/immunology
Many of Dr. Keller’s patients come to him
with respiratory or skin problems. He sees
patients of all ages.
“To me, it’s important to recognize that each patient is an individual,” Dr. Keller said. “Every person has unique needs and requires an individualized approach.”
For Dr. Keller, the best part of practicing medicine is seeing a patient whose condition has improved significantly.
“Patients are really thankful when you can resolve or improve their issue,” he said.
