Dr. Elizabeth Kelly – Otologist, Otolaryngologist at Boys Town Ear, Nose and Throat

Hi, I’m Elizabeth Kelly. I’m a Neurologist
Otologist at the Boys Town Ear, Nose & Throat Institute. I received my medical
degree at the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I then
completed a residency in Otolaryngology also at the Medical College of Wisconsin
in Milwaukee. I completed a Fellowship in Neurology Otology at the University of
Minnesota in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I joined Boys Town in 2017. I was very
interested in just finding a position or a career that I could really help people.
I was always interested in sciences and biology and I had done a couple of
different work positions at hospitals when I was in high school. In college and
then really just found that this was a good position and career for me in that
it would be a way to help people and hopefully make a difference. ENT
diagnoses and problems often really affect people’s day-to-day life and by
becoming an Ear, Nose and Throat Physician, I could hopefully give
different recommendations or treatments that would really impact and improve
people’s quality of life. With my fellowship, it involves treating people
with your disease or hearing loss or other balance problems and involves both
pediatric patients as well as adults. My favorite part of the job is interacting
with patients and just finding out what symptoms have been most bothersome to
them, how it’s affecting their day-to-day life and being able to talk with them
and finding different strategies as well as treatment options that really could
help make them feel better. My philosophy of care is really patient centered so I
like to spend time informing the patient of what’s going on with their diagnosis
and different management options, as well as including them in the decision-making
process. At the Boys Town Ear, Nose and Throat Institute, there’s a great group
of physicians they really focus on taking care of the patients and staying
current with the latest evidence and different management for patients.
There’s also a great relationship with the communication and audiology
department that helps to facilitate patients care.
