Some background information…
Kellman grew up in a medical family, with his father an MD and his mother a nurse midwife and nurse practitioner. He says he was influenced by both of his parents in their adherence to eating organic food fresh from the garden and living close to nature.
His father, Dr. Neil Kellman, was practicing acupuncture, herbal medicine and nutritional counseling long before it became popular. Kellman’s father also spent several years in the West Indies practicing tropical medicine and humanitarian work. Kellman says his fondest memories of his father were the times when he accompanied him on house calls. His father carried the traditional black doctor’s bag and had a cool and collected way of handling patients in distress.
Kellman always knew he wanted to be a doctor. When he discovered that he could become a licensed naturopathic doctor, this path seemed to suit his background and his passions. Married with a son and a daughter, Kellman enjoys spending his free time with family and friends, playing tennis, hiking, biking and enjoying the great outdoors.
