What People Say About Dr. Howard Klickman, MD
He might be a good geriatric physician in Gaffney but he was cold,rude and smart mouthed when I saw him in the Wound Center at SRMC.I waited two months and was number 28 in line for an appointment.Besides a liturgy of nasty snide remarks he had the nerve to say “What took you so long to get here”.There are some great physicians at the wound center but he isn’t one of them. I happened to find my instructions on My Chart weeks later.My PCP said he would be a waste of time.He was correct
