What People Say About Dr. Christopher Klingele, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I visited Dr. Klingele in relation to a uterine prolapse. After an extensive set of questions related to my symptoms and life style, Dr. Klingele came in the consultation room with another doctor from his team, a student and his nurse practitioner. We discussed all options and he presented in a straightforward way the benefits and risks of each approach. At the end, we all agreed that got my condition and my lifestyle, best approach was to do nothing - but be careful with efforts soliciting the pelvic floor. I was extremely pleased by his approach which did. It think of surgery as the only way forward. A highly professional, kind and personable doctor whom I highly recommend.

Dr. Klingele is one of the best doctors I've ever been to, and I've been to a lot. He asks questions and pays attention. He understands, and cares, how you feel about things. He takes the time to find out all he can, realizing we're all different, and then gives you suggestions for your best options. This sometimes is not surgery. I trust him 100%, and that is not something that happens with me very often! He's a brilliant doctor, he knows how to talk to women, and he listens.

Dr. Klingele has the best way of developing a solid, trusting patient-doctor relationship of any surgeon I've ever known. He's attentive, listens well, and respectfully answers all questions. Somehow adapts to what my needs are in different appointments (serious, caring, compassionate, funny, etc.). I do not feel embarrassed about anything. All my concerns are valuable and making my body function at it's best is always his goal. Excellent surgeon--great results. I trust him implicitly.
