What Our Patients Are Saying

We love to hear from our patients to better server others in the future.

Tell us how we did treating you!

“There are two qualities I look for in any physician I’ve had to see over the years: physician expertise and genuine care by the physician for his/her patients. Furthermore, part of a doctors care for his patients is his ability to blend his expertise as a physician with his patients preferences for care. Since becoming a patient at Allergy and Asthma Care, Dr. Kelkar has provided me with all of these important physician qualities.” - Bill

“Hello Amazing staff! Thank you for the special care that our daughter received today during her first OIT appointment. Her entire care team was supportive, friendly, and made her feel comfortable! We appreciate Dr.Helm in how he took so much time to answer our questions, reassure our daughter, and is just all around AMAZING!!!!! His approach is full of kindness, humor, and quality professionalism!!!” - Nancy & Troy

“I was very pleased with my experience with Dr. Kelkar at Allergy and Asthma Care. When I was explaining my symptoms he listened to me and I could tell that he truly was there to help . I really appreciated Dr. Kelkar’s kindness and care. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for care with their allergy and asthma symptoms. A++!”

My wife had been experiencing a worsening cough for many years that was becoming highly disruptive to her everyday life.  She had seen various doctors and tried several treatments that had been unsuccessful.  Our primary doctor eventually referred her to Dr. Kelkar whom he labeled as a “difficult-to-diagnose cough expert.”  We were immediately impressed with Dr. Kelkar’s thorough review  of possible causes.  He explained each possibility in easily understandable language.  After methodically running tests of each option, he diagnosed her with chronic hypersensitive cough receptor syndrome.  He referred us to a speech therapist.  We admit to great skepticism about that referral but did as he suggested and were extremely pleased to find that after performing a scope test of her nasal track and throat, she taught my wife some exercises that provided immediate results of being able to suppress the severity of her coughs.  Dr. Kelkar prescribed some medication that actually greatly reduced her urges to cough as well as some over-the-counter medications that also helped.  Today at a follow-up visit, we were also highly impressed that Dr. Kelkar advised us, now that the coughing problem had been resolved, to gradually reduce the medications to determine if they were still needed.  He supports our desire to only take medications that are needed.  Without hesitation, we highly recommend seeing him at one of his Twin Cities Allergy or Allina locations if you are having difficulty with chronic coughs!”

Dr. Kelkar was recommended to me by my ENT.  I appreciate Dr. Kelkar taking the time to kindly listen.  He had a holistic approach, we discussed diet modification, supplements and medications.  Dr. Kelkar provided very compassionate and encompassing care.  I credit Dr. Kelkar with saving my life by finding cancer in a CT scan, he was so thorough with the care he provided.  He is an amazing doctor, who truly cares about his patients.

I have had a cough for over 20 years and I was misdiagnosed with asthma by other physicians and it just did not seem to be getting better.  Then I was referred to Dr. Kelkar, he truly listened, I felt like other doctors just moved me along.  He listens and takes the time to hear your concerns.  My cough has greatly improved with diet modification and medication.  I am very happy and impressed with Dr. Kelkar.  I would recommend him to everyone.
