Dr. Klem was highly recommended to me from a friend, but I did my own research and asked a surgical nurse that I know what surgeon would she recommend of three Doctors names that I gave her and she replied that Dr Klem by far was the Best. I was suffering with back pain for 18 months and I did Physical Therapy for a month with no success. Then I went to a Chiropractor for another month with little success. I finally had an Epidural procedure that was recommended by my primary Physician . The Epidural did nothing for my pain, so the Physician recommended surgery. I finally saw Dr. Klem and after an MRI was done he explained to me what he would recommend is Decompression and Fusion of my L5/S1 . I had the surgery two weeks later and I have been pain free now for nine weeks. Thank you Dr. Klem and your very Professional staff for getting my Life back without pain.

My visit to Dr. Klem office was excellent. The office clean, organize, professional environment, quick attention with courtesy and professionalism. Dr. Klem give me options of treatment to pick. Then I had surgery March/27/2020 a Lumbar Laminectomy 3 levels that was successful. I went to his office at the beginning with a walker and I came back walking by myself. I never believe that it could be possible on me. I high recommend him and his team. Enmanuel Santa Ana Gonzalez

My visit to Dr. Klem's Office was excellent. He explained the test results and the surgical procedure to be performed very clearly and his employees were very professional and courteous. As a matter of fact, I have had three different surgeries with Dr. Klem: Cervical and Lumbar Fusion with Spondylolisthesis in 2013 and Cervical Arthroplasty in 2020. He has saved my life for three times. In my opinion, he is an amazing neurosurgeon, the best of the best.

Dr. Klem was highly recommended by my pain management dr. From the moment I had my first consultation, I felt extremely confident in his abilities. He explained everything in detail, but I did have to remind him that I knew absolutely nothing except I was in pain & did not want to take the chance of becoming addicted to anything to control it. At that point he explained everything in non-doctor language; allowed me to ask any & all questions and answered them in a manner which I could understand. His staff (especially Jenny) was extremely knowledgeable and competent, going beyond their job descriptions in accommodating my non-consistent work schedule, especially when it required changing my surgery dates. Surgery on the neck & spine is scary - Dr. Klem can allay your fears & have you feeling confident the outcome will be what you wanted & expected, with no complications. His follow-ups maintain your confidence that you made the right choice for a surgeon.

He takes the cases that nobody wants to take. My case was too risky according to the different neurosurgeons I visited from a prestigious entity in Miami. Doctor Klem was the only one who gave hope after a bad previous surgery in my cervical. My surgery was on 09/20/19. I am therapy now getting my 80% of my recovery, but I look like a 100% healthy person.I am blessed because God put him to save my life. God uses him.

I was not there when my father went in for his 1st meeting. His diagnosis. But I was told that Dr. Klem was very professional and explained everything with details and made my father comfortable with the upcoming surgery. I met Dr. Klem for the 1st time when my father was admitted. Dr explained everything again, asked my father questions a d made sure we were ALL at ease with my father's Cervical Spine surgery. EVERYTHING was a success. My father now is recovering and we couldn't be any more thankful. Not once did my dad feel pain on his actual spine while recovering. Just soreness and muscle pain from tension. We are greatful and would recommend Dr. Klem to anyone.

Dr. Klem was a 1 of 4 referrals by another Dr. that I went to see thinking I had a hip issue. After reviewing him on line and visiting the office I made my decision with no doubt that Dr. Klem is very capable. Office clean and organized as a Dr.'s office should be, staff very professional and with you through the process. What impressed me more so is that before surgery my therapist spoke very highly of Dr. Klem, hospital staff spoke highly of Dr. Klem, even nurses attending me in my hospital room spoke highly of Dr. Klem. He is thorough in his explanation of what was going to occur in surgery and what was going to be placed (model shown). Dr. Klem was very patient with me to answer any questions/concerns and very reassuring. As I compared him to other neuro's in the same fashion as Dr. Klem, for me it was a very easy decision to choose him. Do yourself a favor if you are reading this and considering and neuro, go see Dr. Klem. The only thing aggravating will be the parking.

My husband came to Dr. Klem after 6 months of physical therapy and 2 steroid injections. He needed disc replacement on his C6-C7. Dr.Klem immediately identified his symptoms and scheduled his surgery within 3 weeks of his appt. He was very professional and knowledgeable. It's only been about 6 weeks and my husband is already around 80-90% better! We are so happy with Dr. Klem. I highly highly recommend him! And his staff is just as good. Remember you're only as good as your staff! And this one is great! They immediately answer phones, return phone calls, email back. They were such a pleasure to deal with. It's so hard to find a responsible, competent administration office nowadays in Miami. I recommend Dr. Klem and his team with my eyes closed! Thank you!! Thank you!!

I was referred to Dr. Klem because of a herniated disc and I'm so glad. I very much appreciated his attention to what I had to say and his overall demeanor and vast knowledge put me at ease with the idea of back surgery. Two weeks ago he performed a discectomy and I've recovered beautifully. Visiting Dr. Klem's office was a very pleasant experience, I've never had to wait more than maybe 15 minutes to see the doctor and his staff is simply exceptional. Everyone is so sweet and friendly, always accommodating, helpful and patient. The group is the whole package! I hope I never have back issues again but, if I ever do, Dr. Klem is my guy.
