I was so impressed by the staff, and Dr. Klause! Very professional, and very compassionate. I would highly recommend! A special shout out to Michelle. I have had quite a difficult time getting answers for some pain in my leg. I feShow morelt like the doctors I called didn’t care. Michelle was very calm and very compassionate to me. From being so frustrated, I got emotional when talking to her, but her sweet and caring demeanor calmed me right down. Dr. Klause was very kind and compassionate. She directed me on who I needed to see, and what I needed, I.e. MRI. I’m very thankful for her help.
Dr. Klause is one of kindest, most caring physicians I have ever met. She genuinely cares about making her patients comfortable and getting the best result to treat their issue. She is the only physician I trust to fix issues inShow more my "nether regions." Seeking care for those areas is inherently awkward, but I don't think any doctor could make me feel more comfortable with it than she does. I am so happy to have found her.
