I'm very happy I found Dr. Klitzman! He was incredibly patient and kind with all my questions prior to surgery (of which he performed beautifully) and always had a smile ready at all my post op appts making you feel completely at ease during a difficult time. True professional.

Mr Klitzman is very unprofessional. Changed my surgery schedule without notifying me & refused to email the consent form the day prior to surgery. When questioned about schedule change, his staff say that it was due to a medical emergency, but that was a week out and changed the surgery schedule...more
