Meet Our Physician

Dr. Kellar McCloy, MD, MS, FAWM

Board Certified Family Medicine

Kellar McCloy is a Board Certified Family Medicine physician and a Fellow of the Academy of Wilderness Medicine. He graduated with Honors from Bucknell University, where he studied French, English and Economics. Kellar had many interests and opportunities and explored several paths before moving to New Orleans to complete his Masters in Pharmacology and earn his medical degree from Tulane University School of Medicine. The son of a Gastroenterologist, Kellar developed a deep respect for medicine at an early age. His calling to Family Medicine came while working a summer job during college at The Church Health Center, a Family Medicine clinic for the working, un-insured population of Memphis. During this time, he began to work through the complexities of coordinating care for patients without insurance and also participated in multiple medical trips to Haiti, where he was able to utilize his French and rudimentary Creole. In New Orleans, he met his amazing wife, Lauren, and just prior to his fourth year of medical school, they renovated a 1978 Airstream and moved to the Pacific Northwest, where Kellar completed the remainder of his medical school training.

Kellar landed at St. Peter Family Medicine in Olympia to complete his Family Medicine residency, with area of concentration in Sports Medicine. He presented at a national Sports Medicine conference, provided sideline coverage at local sporting events, and apprenticed with Sports Medicine physicians, including caring for world class ultra-runners in Seattle. He subsequently practiced Family Medicine with Providence, Group Health, and Kaiser, before relocating to the Methow Valley. With Liberty Bell Family Medicine, Kellar is practicing a revitalized Family Medicine with unprecedented access and time for patients, allowing for quality and personalized medicine for the Methow Valley.
