I have degenerative arthritis in my back which severely damaged discs in my lower back. This caused nearly debilitating sciatic nerve pain. Dr. Klem was a genius with my surgery to repair the discs, fix the stenosis of the nerves contributing to the sciatic pain and repaired scoliosis. In my opinion, Dr. Klem walks on water! I have not had a bit of pain or discomfort since November, 2017. I found him to be thorough with his exams. He explained everything he would do heal me. He gave me my life back.

This is one of those rare times when you actually feel fortunate to have had a surgery - and the reason for that is the amazing professionalism I was treated with by Dr. Klem. Cannot thank him enough for his top skills, top expertise, top bedside manner - he combines all of the above in one. Thank you, Dr. Klem for getting me out of my misery and putting my neck back together!

A terrible mistake. Now I am paying the consecuences. After surgery I am in pain as never before and he doesnt care. He is a psycopath. He told me his job was done and to go and look for another doctor. My surgery was on july 14. Shame on you doctor.

Dr. Klem is amazing!! He saved my mother’s life from a front lobe head tumor. He is very caring and attentive plus super intelligent. If I ever need a neurosurgeon he will be the first one on my list. The office staff were nice & genuine; I felt very comfortable with them. This is the kind of care all physicians offices should practice.

The worse, he is a very nasty person. Lacks of bedside manners. Looks like he is always in a bad mood. I don't have an oppinion about his qualifications as a surgeon. He only told me, that I need to go to a pain management doctor, in a very nasty way. What an unpleasant experience. Feb/2021

Words cannot express my gratitude to Dr. Klem and his expertise. I had 3 levels involved due to 3 herniated discs in my neck and he was able to address all 3. I sought a 2nd opinion with whom Dr. Klem referred to as the “guru of neuro-surgery” and that particular doc would not take time to seek out insurance approval for 3 levels while Dr. Klem was willing to escalate if need be as he felt it was medically necessary. Since my surgery, I have not had ANY pain. He is a brilliant surgeon and takes the time to explain in simple terms. In addition, Dr. Klem made it very easy to communicate with questions pre and post surgery. His communication skills differentiates him from all other surgeons taking the anxiety about the surgery away as I knew I was in good hands. Lastly, his surgical nurse Jenny and office staff were excellent. Jenny had excellent follow up and was able to receive approval quickly. I highly recommend Dr. Klem!

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.

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.
