My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My goal, as your primary care physician, is to partner with you to create a personalized healthcare plan that can help effectively treat your current health problems and better prevent new ones from developing. Practicing good medicine includes a relationship based on mutual trust and respect. We will work together to formulate a plan that will help you achieve a better quality of life for a longer period of time. There are no shortcuts, nor are there “one size fits all” formulas to achieve this. In my MDVIP-affiliated practice, I will have more time which allows me to emphasize prevention and wellness in a warm, welcoming and unhurried atmosphere.  

This care can help make a happy, healthy future your reality through the use of a comprehensive wellness exam, careful review of records and the extended amount of time I will be able to spend with each of my patients. Similar to conveniences often associated with concierge medicine practices, I also offer same- or next-day appointments that start on time.  

As a board certified family physician with nearly 35 years of practice in this community, I have relationships with many specialists to help you and your unique needs. I am currently on staff at Henry Ford Allegiance Health System and St. Joseph Mercy Hospital/Chelsea campus. My patients come from Jackson County as well as surrounding counties.   

In terms of physician quality measures, as quantified by Jackson Health Network, I received the highest ranking of all participants in their program for maintaining all the required elements for patient care in 2016 in Jackson County. I am extremely thankful for being given the opportunity to become a physician, which reflects in the care that I give and the relationships that I develop with my patients. I welcome the opportunity to assist you with making informed decisions toward achieving your healthcare goals.

from Sharon in MI March 13, 2024 for Gene E. Kielhorn, DO, MPH

Having gone to Dr Kielhorn for years before he became a MDVIP member I was not able to stay with him right away. After losing my husband and the large turnover of local doctors and physicians assistants I was able to justify the cost of joining MDVIP. As I seldom need his help, he never fails to be there when I need him. As I am fortunate to be in FL. Some of the year he respects my calls when… See more

from Dorene July 27, 2018 for Gene E. Kielhorn, DO, MPH

I had the bad news that my A1C was too high. I had gained weight and was not taking care of myself. Dr. Said I was diabetic but could work on weight and exercise. I had the physical I needed thru the MDVIP program and decided to make some changes. I started walking, and drumming, (great way to exercise) and lost 30 pounds and got my A1C and weight under control. Feel much better. Look much… See more
