Patient | October 23, 2017

I went to see Dr. Klekamp b/c I have a cyst on my neck. Dr. Klekamp felt my neck and based on our conversation I could tell he did not understand my concern. I asked him "Did you feel the cyst?" He replied "No." So I showed him how to feel it. He did not listen and offered me an MRI to further examine. I declined. I asked him if he could tell me what he thought it might be? He replied "No," I was very concerned and DID NOT receive good care. I was NOT impressed w/him AT ALL. #4. No treatment.

All of my check marks speak for themselves. but I can say that Dr Klekamp is a very very good doctor he takes time to talk to you and your family. I can say that no onecould have a better doctor if you need surgery he will tell you the truth about your surgery and he do not mix words. I cannot say enough about Dr Klekamp or his staff.
Patient | September 16, 2017

he discussed my medical condition based on a MRI from 4yrs ago instead of requesting for updated test. I left like I was treated as a drug seeker and was treated as quickly as possible to get out of the office.

Had a great experience precise and to the point
Patient | August 7, 2017

other maybe a little more detail of physical therapy that was prescribed would have been nice but overall nothing to complain about. One thing that is nice that I've seen at other clinics is to provide written instructions and diagnosis for the patients. Some of us (me) forget some of the things we're told.

Dr. Klekamp was very nice and acted concerned about my neck pain. He sent me to physical therapy for help. Also, he didn't try to rush into steroid injection just yet.
