Look elsewhere as Dr. Klinge and her staff fail to consider the whole patient and interaction of co-exisitng conditions.

Love the doctor herself. She takes the time to answer your questions. And make sure you understand what is going on. Her staff needs to learn patience, and have a better attitude when dealing with the doctors patients, we are nervous and scared, we don't need to feel unheard by the staff or be spoken to rudely.

After four years and 12+ doctors finally found one that can diagnose and treat NPH. Highly recommend her.

My father has hydrocephalus and Dr. Klinge put in a shunt to fix the issue. Recently he made 2 appointment with Dr. Klinge for an adjustment to the shunt. She cancelled both of them. Months went by without the shunt being checked. As a result he wound up in the hospital due to the hydrocephalus not being monitored. In the hospital they tapped the shunt as a temporary fix. We scheduled another appointment with Dr Klinge to get the adjustment. She cancelled again. Pathetic.
Would love to tell you about my experience however it is impossible to schedule an appointment. I have tried unsuccessfully to schedule an appointment for over 1 month. Multiple messages have been left by myself and the referring doctors staff.
