Dr. Klinker has the rare combination of skill, experience, thoughtfulness backed by extensive intelligence and training, and compassion. I feel so fortunate to have her leading the team through my recent cancer diagnosis, staging, and total proctocolectomy using a robotic approach. Without being overly dramatic, Dr. Klinker saved my life. I am a picky consumer of healthcare being a nurse practitioner and PhD prepared researcher. She is top-notch and I would highly recommend her to you.

Dr. Klinker has been amazing from day one! She wasted no time getting me in for a colonoscopy, and when she had to tell my husband and me that I had cancer, she held me and cried with us! I have never had a doctor show as much compassion as she has! After diagnosis, she was quick to get my subtotal Colectomy done! She never makes us feel rushed, and happily answers ALL our questions! I am finding myself looking at her as not only my incredible doctor, but as a friend! I highly recommend her!!

I have had two colonoscopies performed by Dr. Klinker, the most recent was yesterday. In both, she was extremely attentive to my needs. As an anesthesiologist I have worked with her extensively in the OR and doing sedation for colonoscopies. She is extremely skilled and I trust her. I wanted that attention to detail. I have a busy schedule and she personally took the time to reschedule my appointment to make it more convenient for me. As a physician, she has everything I want in a caregiver.

The Dr was dismissive, cruel & unprofessional. She retraumatized myself and my family. She lacked professionalism yelling and verbal threatened my mother at hospital in front of my 14 year old daughter. She laughed off the thought I was worried she was mad/agitated with me going into the tests. I will never know but by body feels like she took it out on me. I was left with severe pain inside and outside of my body after tests for days she never addressed. She never checked on me THE PATIENT

I agree with other comments about Kelly seeming to be in a big hurry to push you through. I was very unhappy about my last experience with Klinker and I ended up with a really bad experience. I had a parasite that should have been caught much earlier. I had to push for a pathogen test. This caused me a great deal of suffering and it could have been caught much earlier with good medical care. As a result of all of this I suffered from a tear.
