Patient Comments (2)

Doesn't listen to issues and do a physical exam. Bedside manner leaves a great deal to be desired. Pushes shots.

I've been Dr. Klaiman's patient for 11 years for a chronic problem. After decades of misdiagnoses, he correctly diagnosed the problem in one appointment. He changed my life. He is an excellent physician.
