Dr. Klyman is amazing. Very attentive. No nonsense. She does everything she can to help you and calls you herself with any results or concerns. The staff is amazing. scheduling is easy. They open Saturdays for sick appointments. We had to switch doctors due to insurance change, but I'll probably switch back later when our insurance changes again. I miss children's medical group!!
