Kristin Kaelber, MD, PhD, FAAP, FACP, originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, graduated from Amherst College magna cum laude with a degree in biology. Dr. Kaelber went on to obtain both her medical degree as well as her PhD in developmental neurosciences from Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine. Next, she completed a combined residency in internal medicine and pediatrics at the Metrohealth System and is board-certified in both specialties. She is also certified in lifestyle medicine from the American College of Lifestyle Medicine.
Dr. Kaelber’s career has ranged from working with patients with disabilities, working in primary care, to serving as an urgent care provider in an emergency room. The course of her career didn’t fully transform until one of her family members became ill with heart disease. Determined to find ways to address his illness outside of conventional medicine, she began to investigate integrative medicine. Through the use of integrative medicine techniques, she was able to help him eliminate most of his medications and stabilize his condition through a natural approach.
Dr. Kaelber believes that people can cure (or at least drastically improve) the majority of their chronic medical problems using a combination of lifestyle medicine techniques including nutrition, stress management, movement and healthy sleep habits.
In addition to her work at CIHN, Dr. Kaelber is on the faculty of the American Meditation Institute and incorporates mind body medicine and yoga science into her work with patients.
Patient Experience Reviews
Dr Kaebler is an excellent patient advocate who truly cares about the patient. I strongly recommend her to all my friends and family. She sets the bar very high by helping the patient treat the root cause of the problem. She is compassionate and understanding in helping the patient work through the behavior changes needed to treat the problem.
Dr. Kaelber was very helpful, asked good questions and explained everything about my health concerns and suggested how I should talk with my primary doctor.
Dr. Kaelber is outstanding!
Dr. Kaelber is the only doctor in 3 years to explain dosage and purpose of my medications and how the medications work for my medical conditions. She allows me to speak and listens to me which is something my other doctors don't have time for or don't care. Thank you for Dr. Kaelber!
Dr Kaelber is an exceptional physician. She is attentive to the concerns of her patient and always comes to an appointment mindful of what was discussed at previous meetings.

This was a productive virtual visit
I appreciate the opportunity to have so much dedicated time of the care provider, to not feel rushed or the like the goal is to complete the appointment as fast as possible and move on to the next person. ***
Dr. Kaelber always works to meet me where I am and help me find the next steps for my care. She witnesses my successes and identifies areas for improvement without judgement. I appreciate that she sees me as a whole person-and treats me with respect and care for my lived experiences.
Dr Kaelber is always excellent!
Very thorough about asking questions and making sure I'm following through with any plan of actions discussed.
Dr Kaelber is very attentive and thoughtful at every appointment. She reviews the important issues and clinically why they need to change.
I wish she could be my PCP. She did more for me that my PCP is willing to do.
Doc really made my wife & I feel comfortable & concern for my well-being
This appointment was a preventative health consultation with Dr. Kaelber, who provided very helpful Information.
Provider is great! Offers many non pharmaceutical options for care.
Dr. Kaelber was insightful. She listened to my concerns and challenges and offered lots of great recommendations for helping me to get on track. Her office staff is kind and caring. I look forward to continuing to have her on my team!
I love Dr. Kaelber. She's knowledgeable and sweet.
The doctor was one of the best I have ever seen. She noticed gaps in my medical history concerning specific types of blood tests and had me correct them. She provided a comprehensive analysis of my current health and provided multiple steps to help me heal, including an eating plan, exercise regimen, varying short term medicine, and knowledge regarding appropriate vs inappropriate supplementation. She personally followed up with the results of my blood work as well, which no other doctor has done. Very personable. I will be sure to continue seeing this doctor going forward.
As always excellent

University Hospitals is committed to transparency in our interactions with industry partners, such as pharmaceutical, biotech, or medical device companies. At UH, we disclose practitioner and their family members’ ownership and intellectual property rights that are or in the process of being commercialized. In addition, we disclose payments to employed practitioners of $5,000 or more from companies with which the practitioners interact as part of their professional activities. These practitioner-industry relationships assist in developing new drugs, devices and therapies and in providing medical education aimed at improving quality of care and enhancing clinical outcomes. At the same time, UH understands that these relationships may create a conflict of interest. In providing this information, UH desires to assist patients in talking with their practitioners about industry relationships and how those relationships may impact their medical care.
UH practitioners seek advance approval for certain new industry relationships. In addition, practitioners report their industry relationships and activities, as well as those of their immediate family members, to the UH Office of Outside Interests annually. We review these reports and implement management plans, as appropriate, to address conflicts of interest that may arise in connection with medical research, clinical care and purchasing decisions.
