About Robert Kelly, MD

Robert Kelly, MD, has been practicing and teaching family medicine to residents and students for 35 years. Since 2001, he has been part of faculty for the Cleveland Clinic Family Medicine Residency Program. He is the Director of Integrative Medicine for the Residency. Family medicine originally attracted his interest because it involves care for everyone in the family, regardless of age or health status. He has a longstanding academic and practical interest in health promotion, disease prevention and patient education; his medical research over the years has also focused in these topic areas.

Most recently, Dr. Kelly has pursued an interest in complimentary and alternative medicine by receiving training in medical acupuncture in 2004 through the Helms Medical Institute “Medical Acupuncture for Physicians” course, affiliated with UCLA School of Medicine. From 2013 to 2015, he completed a two-year Fellowship in Integrative Medicine through Dr. Andrew Weil's Center for Integrative Medicine at the University of Arizona, Tucson.

Industry Relationships

Industry Relationships

Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists may collaborate with the pharmaceutical or medical device industries to help develop medical breakthroughs or provide medical expertise or education. Cleveland Clinic strives to make scientific advances that will benefit patient care and support outside relationships that promise public benefit. In order for the discoveries of Cleveland Clinic physicians' and scientists' laboratories and investigations to benefit the public, these discoveries must be commercialized in partnership with industry. As experts in their fields, Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists are often sought after by industry to consult, provide expertise and education.

To assure professional and commercial integrity in such matters, Cleveland Clinic maintains a program that reviews these collaborations and, when appropriate, puts measures in place to minimize bias that may result from ties to industry. Cleveland Clinic publicly discloses the names of companies when (i) its physicians/scientists receive $5,000 or more per year (or, in rare cases, equity or stock options) for speaking and consulting, (ii) its physicians/scientists serve as a fiduciary, (iii) its physicians/scientists receive or have the right to receive royalties or (iv) its physicians/ scientists hold any equity interest for the physician's/scientist's role as inventor, discoverer, developer, founder or consultant.* In publicly disclosing this information, Cleveland Clinic tries to provide information as accurately as possible about its physicians' and scientists' connections with industry.

As of 5/22/2018, Dr. Kelly has reported no financial relationship with industry that is applicable to this listing. In general, patients should feel free to contact their doctor about any of the relationships and how the relationships are overseen by Cleveland Clinic.

Public Health Service-Reportable Financial Conflicts of Interest. Cleveland Clinic scientists and physicians engage in basic, translational and clinical research activities, working to solve health problems, enhance patient care and improve quality of life for patients. Interactions with industry are essential to bringing the researchers' discoveries to the public, but can present the potential for conflicts of interest related to their research activities. Click here to view a listing of instances where Cleveland Clinic has identified a Public Health Service (PHS)-Reportable Financial Conflict of Interest and has put measures in place to ensure that, to the extent possible, the design, conduct and reporting of the research is free from bias.

I was very impressed during my first visit with Dr. Vincer. She was attentive, compassionate, aware of my past medical history and made me feel very comfortable under her care. She took her time to get to know me, understand my areas of concern and discuss medication and care options. She was quick to process a referral request and followed up with a phone call a few days after my appointment to discuss blood work results. Not only did she provide me with the results, but she also asked about my general well-being. I would highly recommend Dr. Vincer to any family member or friend who is seeking a trustworthy and caring Primary Care Physician.

My daughter and I were very pleased with Kelly Walthius, DO. We both really felt like she cared about us and listened patiently to my daughter. My daughter had a lot to say and she never made us feel like we were taking too long. She is a great doctor and one I would love to continue seeing as our primary care doctor.

communication between Dr. with my chart was excellent.

I recently had contacted Fairview Family Health at the recommendation of a friend because I was looking for a new primary care physician. This was my first visit to this physician who was assigned to me. I liked her very much. She was kind and caring, and spent a good amount of time with me. Very good experience.
