Dr. Klause's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Klause "I have been in solo private practice since 2000. Started as a trauma surgeon with a critical care fellowship training. In 2008 I began a solo general surgery practice, this allows the advantage of quick response time, continuity of care, high patient satisfaction and more intimate patient interaction. I love medicine especially surgery where not only can you use medical knowledge but also use surgery to be able to care for the patient and see tangible results sometimes instantly. My goal is to always search for better and less invasive treatments for managing general surgical diseases for my patients. I am trained in robotic laparoscopic surgery as well as incisionless hemorrhoid surgery. It is the because of the love of medicine that I became a doctor and still enjoy it tremendously."
