I was suffering from pain in my right groin when I went to see Dr. Klause. She immediately diagnosed an inguinal hernia and explained several options for taking care of my problem. She was kind, patient and thorough. We were able to schedule surgery quickly. My surgery went without incident and Dr. Klause helped me through a successful recovery. Thanks to Dr. Klause and her staff, I have returned to all my usual activities.
