Dr. Kelly Gabel, DO

Dr. Kelly Gabel is originally from St. Francis. “I saw the needs in northwest Kansas while growing up in Cheyenne County. It was always my goal to return and provide what I knew we needed. Coming to Colby seemed to fall into place, and when we considered all aspects, it became an easy decision.” Dr. Gabel is married to Dr. Sarah Gabel and they have three children: Elijah, Aleha, and Korin. He enjoys wrestling, guitar, golfing, and hunting. He is dedicated to his family and faith.

Dr. Gabel received his Doctor of Osteopathy (DO) from the Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences. He completed his residency in General Surgery at Botsford Hospital in MI. “Of all my rotations, general surgery was the one that allowed me to use my hands as well as my knowledge and fulfill the vision I had growing up. I love that I can make a significant difference in a short amount of time. From caring for the critically injured, to screening for colon cancer, people come out of surgery and feel a relief they haven’t felt in months. I am able to see the impact I am having on my patients take place before my eyes. General surgery has also challenged me in ways I never would have thought, which keeps me focused and interested every day.”
