Dr. Klish and his staff provide quality care. He initially explained my situation and was very thorough. His staff explained everything as we went along. Over the treatment period of of 5 weeks I was very pleased with the professional staff and Dr. Lawrence is fortunate to have them in Radiation. I would certainly recommend Dr. Kliss and his staff.

Dr. Klish and his entire staff are exceptional professionals. They are positive, friendly, caring and take the time to get to know their patients. They greet you with a smile and always ask how your day is going. They see so many patients in a single day and it has to be somewhat trying to maintain the same enthusiasm and caring for each patient. My husband does not like going to the doctor, but he has kept a positive attitude about treatment. I believe that has been due to the wonderful people he encounters from the time he walks in the office to the time he leaves.

Dr. Klish and his staff provide timely, quality care. His explanations of my tumor was thorough and caring. I don't think we ever had to wait more than five minutes and his staff explained everything as we went along. When it came to making our decision as to where we wanted to obtain our radiation treatments, we first visited with Dr. Klish and then KUMC. It was the right choice to get it in Lawrence.

It is very fortunate that we have this high quality facility in our Lawrence community. I was able to have my radiation treatments as well as my chemo in Lawrence. I was able to keep working in Topeka throughout the treatments. I will have my surgery at KU Med in Kansas City. All the staff in Lawrence were great to work with. Dr. Klish did a wonderful job of explaining the process I would go through. The staff at KU Med show high regard for Dr. Klish and Dr. Stein, a real confidence builder.

My breast cancer surgery and doctors were at KUMED. I am from IL and KUMED was recommended to me by friends living in Lawrence. I am staying with these friends while going through treatment. When I discussed radiation with Dr Mitchell (radiation oncology) at KUMED, I asked about receiving radiation in Lawrence because of the convenience. Dr Mitchell said that she had trained with Dr Klish, that he was an excellent Dr and that I would be in good hands. She was right. Dr Klish was great!

I was impressed with his personality and I thought he treated me as his only patient. It did a lot to answer any questions I had. I thought he had a professional attitude without the stiffness and self-important attitude some professionals develop. I was favorably impressed with all the staff I encountered in my radiation treatments.

Dr. Klish is a very caring, intelligent doctor. He was very understanding of my needs in treating me. Dr. Klish throughly explained everything to me in my treatment and gave me reasons why he treated me like he did. He told me all the side effects that could occur and what I could do to treat them. He did not rush through my appointments. Dr.Klish made me feel very special.
