    Over thirty years Dr. Klausner has kept my nose running--or rather I mean in good order in spite of chronic nasal papilloma. He is highly intelligent and an interesting guy a well as being a brilliant surgeon who keeps up to date with the latest international developments. I can't say enough good stuff about this guy.

    Good, caring doc. Treated me for nasal polyps and improved my life incredibly. Cannot thank him enough. I like that the staff calls to check up on me after my appointments, feels like they care. Would recommend.

    No wait time, my appointment went great. I found out a lot about my throat. Exam room was very clean and nurse was such a nice woman. Dr Klausner performed my sinus surgery 3 years ago. Healed nicely, no problems, great surgeon.

    Dr Klausner accepted me for a last minute appointment. I had extreme ear pain and could not walk without falling. His receptionist was very polite and helped me out with getting the appointment. I am grateful for their help. Returned again for my hearing issues this past week. Glad to find a gentleman and straight shooter.

    Doctor Klausner is the best throat doctor in Santa Monica. He always has time to answer my questions. Staff is polite and helpful, always pleasant.

    His office is remodeled with new equipment and the wait time has significantly decreased. No delays or wait for me. I enjoy that my doctor actually spends a lot of time with me. When I needed a procedure done, Dr Klausner spent half an hour explaining what was on the screen of the scope, my different parts of the nose, throat, etc and where the problem was located. Never had a doctor spend so much time with me. I appreciate that care.
