Dr kelekamp saved my life back in 2013 when broke my C6/C7 bone in neck. would not be here without him.
Patient | February 14, 2017

I really like Dr. Klekamp. He spends time with you explaining everything you need to know. He is very personable. My only complaint there is the time spent waiting past appointment time to see him.

he is amazing. also cheerful attitude which puts one at ease but still shows concern. did not belittle my concerns and took me seriously so I felt respected and cared for. He ordered the correct follow up and made sure I understood what was happening. Excellent provider!

Patient | December 19, 2016

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.

Dr. K was great
Patient | December 19, 2016

I just think since he was behind schedule things were a bit rushed and some things got overlooked
Patient | December 1, 2016

I definitely would recommend Dr. Klekamp. It's wonderful to have a specialist who truly cares about your medical problem and about the suffering you are experiencing.
Patient | October 31, 2016

Dr. Klekamp always shows patience with me and the questions and concerns I have had. He takes the time to explain procedures to me and makes sure I understand everything. He always makes me feel at ease and I have, and will continue to, recommend him to others needing a spine specialist.

I have referred a couple of people with back and spine issues to Dr. Klekamp
Patient | October 9, 2016

Dr. Klekamp is wonderful. I experienced some drainage from my incision post-op. I saw him in the office for this, and he called me two days later to check on me even though I had a follow-up appointment with him the next day.
Patient | October 3, 2016

The provider I feel I did all he could do, now and likelihood of future.

I have had only good experiences.
Patient | September 9, 2016

Very busy clinic day resulting in physicians delay
Patient | September 6, 2016

I felt that Dr. Klekamp did not listen to my complaint about the pain I had which radiated from my right buttock. He pointed out on the MRI that the doctor who had performed previous surgery on my back had done a wonderful job as if I could not be having any pain from a condition in my back at all. After he had made his pronouncement, he promptly left the room. I felt totally ignored and unsatisfied and will not be returning to this provider.
Patient | September 3, 2016

Dr. Klekamp is a great doctor.
Patient | August 28, 2016

Dr. Klekamp & his staff have always shown concern & kindness. Highly recommend Dr. Klekamp!
Patient | August 25, 2016

Dr. Klekamp was responsible for my health and continued life improvement. He did save my life.
Patient | March 3, 2016

I have had 2 back surgeries from this provider. my back and hip hurt and he referred me to a rheumatoid arthritis specialist March 17. I hurt all over and on both sides of body. But, hip bursitis and back pain have been present for 2 years. he called in a prescription I already tried and threw away. no effect on my pain.Over a month until R.A. appt.
Patient | February 14, 2016
