Dr. Klimo is an amazing Neuro surgeon! My son was diagnosed with craniopharyngioma in December of 2014, our local doctors in Missouri had given up hope and told us it wasn't anything else they could do for him. DR. Klimo stepped in and gave us hope,he performed a total tumor resection on our son September of 2015. Dr. Klimo is a very personable physician;he didn't treat us like a medical record number, he was very compassionate and an all around astounding physician!

Yes I do believe in super heroes and Dr. Klimo is mine. He has been a doctor to my son for 3 years. His expertise, professionalism, and overall genuinely caring personality has been greatly appreciated by our family. Highly recommend him for any pediatric neurological needs.

Amazing surgeon & great person, but his staff is horrifying...they never return calls even after a month of begging 2&3 times a week for a return call. They don't handle referrals either. They leave you nowhere to turn but some shadey local ER or urgent care if you need help.
