Dr Klipfel is the reason I am able to live a somewhat normal life today. I had a condition where my large intestines stopped working, and he performed a complete colectomy to allow my body to start having motility again. He has an amazing beside manner, and a vast as well as current knowledge of all the latest and greatest procedures and protocols. I will forever be grateful to him for changing my life,
