Patient Comments (2)

My 2 teenage sons have seen Dr. Klinefelter multiple times for hand related hockey injuries. Dr. Klinefelter understands kids and sports and when appropriate, has cleared them to play and casted or braced their injuries in a way that has allowed them to continue playing.

He did surgery on my trigger finger in Dec of 2015. Was excellent, caring, and thorough. He gave me 3 options and I choose the surgery. Two days later, it's like new.
