Dr. Keller is a board-certified dermatologist that specializes in general and complex dermatology with special interests in dermatologic urgent care and inpatient consultation. He provides a consistent and accessible dermatologic resource for providers who see patients in the hospital setting. Dr. Keller sees patients at the Department of Dermatology at the Center for Health & Healing and at both the OHSU and the Portland Veterans Affairs hospitals. 

At the OHSU Department of Dermatology, he aims to provide rapid and effective triage for urgently arising outpatient skin problems. In the hospital, he consults on patients with a broad range of conditions, from common (stasis dermatitis, cellulitis, shingles) to more serious (pyoderma gangrenosum, autoimmune blistering dermatoses, graft-versus-host disease). His research interests include the judicious use of antibiotics for skin conditions. One of his career focuses is increasing the amount of interaction and education between dermatology and the other medical specialties.

In his free time, Dr. Keller enjoys time with his family, being outdoors running, cycling or swimming and enjoying all things Portland -- including its craft beer scene.

Patient Comments

    I appreciated that he explained to me. He knows the proper name of whatever is wrong with my skin and he also brought another dermatologist and take a look and and have some feedback also, so I felt good about that. Also, he is trying another medication for me to try and get rid of this which he says is very hard to get rid of, but the dermatologist I had locally said, oh, that there's only the one medication that I know of that will make it work and it didn't work and so he gave me an option of a couple of medication so I had an input in that.

    Dr. Keller is a very skilled doctor who genuinely cares and helps his patients.

  • Apr 09, 2019

    I have been looking for a diagnosis for over 2yrs. Dr. Keller did it in under 3 seconds. Thank you

  • Apr 08, 2019

    My OHSU dermatology literally saved my life. If my husband hadn’t woken me up and arranged my children to be watched by my parents and spent the entire day at OHSU ER I wouldn’t be here. Dr Keller was the only person in over 4.5 months to help me. I was in a living hell and I am now healing and my family is finally moving forward in life, as it should have done the last almost half a year. OHSU is amazing and I sincerely wish I would have been referred here months ago.

    I was being seen by him as a new patient with known Melanoma and concern for more lesions. He himself barely looked at my skin. He did not do a thorough examination. Jesse was unable to answer some of our questions and seemed completely detached. Maybe it was a bad day, but to me this was very concerning. Definitely not best practice for patient safety.

  • Apr 06, 2019

    My experience with Dr. Keller and Christina the nurse was awesome. They worked so hard to know me up to take my biopsy. They were friendly and pleasant and just really listened and answered all my questions and it was just Other than you know the painting at the shop, which they had to work and work and work at lemming me up. It was a very pleasant experience and I would definitely recommend them, thank you.

  • Dec 27, 2018

    I have ADD and Asberger's among other issues which makes it difficult for me to communicate/connect with people in general. I have had enormous difficulties with health care professionals. Dr. Keller was superb. He was easy to talk to, he listened carefully, and most importantly he respected what I had to say. I had the chance (the 1st time in years) to participate in treatment decisions. Other Doctor's could learn a lot from this man.

  • Dec 17, 2018

    Dr. Keller was attentive and listened carefully to my health concerns. He agreed with my assessment of my condition and extended the medication I am receiving. I am going to continue to use him as my primary doctor for my condition.

    Dr. Keller was very professional and quizzed me to make sure that I knew was going to occur. Very polite and knew about my rare disease, I assume he'd reviewed my medical records.

  • Nov 16, 2018

  • Nov 14, 2018

    Well, when I came to see Dr. Keller, I was dying. I'd had 50 or 60 doctors tell me that I was hallucinating foreign objects coming out of my skin and I was...I actually did have parasites that were eating me from the inside out. Dr. Keller saved my life.

  • Nov 13, 2018

    I spent most of my time with a different doctor who was very good & very responsive.

  • Nov 05, 2018

    He was very thorough and he got me in and out and I had some concern about a skin lesion, and he took me very serious, so seriously, so I greatly appreciate it. Thank you.

  • Oct 26, 2018

    From my first visit with Doctor Keller, he has provided the highest level of care. I was in horrible shape when I finally met and was evaluated by Doctor Keller....My disease had become potentially life threatening...and Doctor Keller immediately took steps to curb the progression of my disease and side effects from the disease. I was admitted to the hospital on the day of the solar eclipse.....where care was administered for four to five days......A few months later, my disease went into total remission. I am so grateful to have found Doctor Keller as prior treatment at other clinics do not adequately respond to the severity of my disease...Doctor Keller knew immediately what had to be done and I can't say enough regarding the respect and appreciation I feel for Doctor Keller. He is a great Doctor......and hope he knows how much I appreciate what he has done for me under his care.

  • Oct 24, 2018
