Dr. Klippenstein is not only competent and very well trained, she is also courteous, friendly and personable. Her office staff are very efficient and as courteous, friendly and personable as their boss.. Their people skills are outstanding, which unfortunately is no longer the norm these days. My experience was truly excellent from beginning to end of my contact with them. Would I recommend Dr. Klippenstein to family and friends? Absolutely and with no hesitation whatsoever!

Recently had surgery to remove a lesion on eyelid. Excellent care from beginning to end. Nurses, anesthesiologist, and Dr. Klippenstein all friendly and took care to answer questions.

I had a great experience with Dr. Klippenstein. I had my upper eyelids done and was very nervous about it. She explained it and with confidence that I will love my results. I had read some other site reviews and saw that people were saying it would take 3 months to see the exact results and I can say they were right. I am glad I chose Dr. Klippenstein and love my results.
