He joined KSOSN as it is a well-known to provide quality kidney care. For him, working in a group with a very-good reputation in the valley excites him to learn, grow and serve the community. He has also met many KSOSN providers that are exceptionally good and that are willing to work together to support patients. He thinks that KSOSN staff and providers value the relationships with patients.

Khelsey cares for his patients and wants them to know that he is in this profession to help and work with other health care providers for the welfare of his patients. He thinks nephrology is the one specialty in medicine that offers absolutely everything. It has traditionally been viewed as a high-volume, hard-working specialty. He thinks careful control of diseases like diabetes and high blood pressure can help prevent kidney disease or keep it from getting worse, play a role in developing CKD.

He is interested in the complexities and management of acid/base disorders, electrolyte abnormalities, and the clinical problem-solving interest him. Taking care of very sick patients in critical care, he has seen patients develop septic shock and multiple organ failure. Kidney involvement is frequent, with clinical presentation ranging from mild proteinuria to progressive acute kidney injury (AKI) necessitating renal replacement therapy (RRT). An understanding of the pathophysiology and mechanisms of kidney damage and AKI in the setting of critical illness is vital and interests him as well.

Khelsey was born and raised in Philippines. He is happily married and has daughter. He loves photography, long drives, and seeing different places.
