I have been to several surgeons over the course of 50 years for my hemorrhoids. Dr. Klas advised me on several procedures and enlightened me regarding the past mistakes. A surgeons bedside manner isn’t as important as his skills however Dr. Klaus alleviated all of my concerns and my hemorrhoids. I cannot put into the proper words how incredibly grateful I am for the effort that he put forth to make this a positive experience.
