I can't say enough about how wonderful Dr Klem and his staff are... absolutely awesome! First, while no other neurosurgeon could take on my rare surgery, many directed me to Dr. Klem. I even changed my insurance to be able to have him fgo the surgery... thank God! He and his whole staff were so helpful and swift in making my surgery happen as soon as possible (very accommodating). Everyone is extremely pleasant, helpful and kind... from reception, to his surgical staff and him! Im so grateful... thank you!

Dr Klem is an amazing doctor and person. I met him at the worst time of my life, where my 7 year old daughter was on the brink of death. He, with God's guidance, saved her. My daughter today is an active, happy 8 year old that has no deficits. Thanks Dr. Klem.

No puedo agradecer lo suficiente al Dr. Klem por lo que hizo por mí. Él cambió completamente mi vida con la cirugía. Lo recomiendo a cualquiera que esté debatiendo sobre la cirugía lumbar.

Sometimes you get lucky with finding a great doctor but not so good office staff or vice versa. In this case, we got lucky with both. After my husband went to other neurosurgeons, Dr. Klem was the only one able to determine that there was a piriformis muscle problem and issues with lumbar 4 and 5. Dr. Klem's office staff is both friendly and empathetic to their patient's needs.

Dr. Klem and his magic hands gave me my life back. I had sever sciatic and several other issues with my back. Dr. Klem, with his knowledge and mastery of neurosurgery, repaired everything that needed repairing and now I am pain free and active again. His office staff is kind and accommodating. They actually answer the phone! Dr. Klem is patient when you are with him. He explains the problem and how he will fix it and answers any questions no matter how often you ask! Highly recommend him.

I became acquainted with Dr. Klem in the emergency room at Kendall Regional. I was brought there with a staph infection I contracted from spinal surgery at a different location and surgeon. Dr Klem operated and successfully cleaned the previous incision. I have recovered completely after further antibiotic treatment. Dr Klem communicated clearly the proposed procedure and gained my confidence. He and his team were attentive and kept me informed after the surgery.

I had spinal surgery with Dr. Klem and everything went smoothly, everything that was going to be done was explained. The follow up appointment was quickly done in and out. I was waiting in the waiting room for no more than 15 minutes and then was taken care of pretty quickly.

Dr. Klem and his entire staff are consummate professionals. Prior to my C-7 surgery, everything was explained to my wife and I in great detail. He took extreme care in answering every question. I would highly recommend him for the delicate surgery I had.

La oficina del Dr. Klem es la mejor. Las chicas me ayudaron a conseguir una cita rápida y me dijeron lo que necesitaba para la visita. Estoy agradecido por su ayuda. El Dr. Klem se tomó su tiempo para explicar lo que estaba pasando y después de mi segundo examen, me aseguraré de reservar la cirugía con él.

What I absolutely love about this office is the ease of making appointments. After my initial visit with the doctor, the girl at the front desk was very helpful and helped me get everything I needed on time for my follow up appointment. His office staff is very kind. The doctor is very professional and knowledge. My condition doesn't require me to have surgery at this time but I'm grateful I came across the doctor and his staff who were able to guide me in the right direction.

He was very kind and knowledgable. He made me feel at ease with the spinal surgery I was going to receive. When I came to him, my situation was urgent and he made all the schedule changes necessary to get me in right away and followed up afterward to make sure I was okay PERSONALLY. I highly recommend Dr. Klem. By the way he was a second consult after not trusting the first consults demeanor and professionalism.

There is not enough great words to express my appreciation for Dr. Jack Klem. When no other doctor would even consider me for surgery because of my extremely complexed condition and after many years going from one neurologist to another, Dr. Jack Klem did not hesitate to undergo this enormous task. I'm post radical brain surgery which eventually left me after many years with a severe scoliosis and kyphosis. Now at 70 years old and a year post surgery I can slowly start to enjoy simple things.
