Very professional, and he was there to get me thru the worst week of my life. Thank you so much Dr. Klima for all your hard work in putting " humptyy dumpty" back together again
in Sarasota, FL |
Dr. Klima was there when I needed a miracle, and he was able to deliver. I am so thankful that he was able to take my case. Broke my arm very badly with the bones sticking out of the skin, and no other surgeon in town was willing to take my case. My arm works great! Dr. Klima gives great care, and was there to help.

Dr. Klima is one of the best surgeons around. I did a lot of research to find the best possible surgeon in Florida and after a lot of recommendations I decided to go with Dr. Klima. He is truly exceptional.
