Dr. Klafeta is not only a skilled surgeon but he takes the time to explain all the procedures that will happen so that I could make an informed decision. After a couple of complications, he was willing to listen to my concerns about the surgery and I could make an informed decision once we had talked about the pros and cons.

Dr Klafeta listened to my concerns about having surgery and allowed me to take the time I needed to make my decision. I ended up having surgery which I know now was the right thing. I appreciate greatly him working with me. Not only is he an amazingly skilled surgeon, he is also very kind.

Dr. Klafeta is the best. He gave me my life and livelihood back. I needed another surgery on my cervical spine. I had 3 done by a different physician. I was petrified. I'd worked with Dr. Klafeta at St. Mary's Hospital and saw his work, the results, and his professionalism. When more problems started again with my neck, I knew he was the surgeon for me. His nurse and PA are also outstanding. I will be seeing him again when I'm in town for my lower back. I trust him completely.

Dr. Klafeta performed a Lumbar Fusion on me on 9/15/2015. I knew of Dr. Klafeta as he performed a Lumbar Fusion on my brother a several years earlier. It was not easy to see him as they have very strict criteria but I think that is good! I met with Dr. Klafeta twice before I made the decision. Dr. Klafeta (and Becky-NP) treated me with diginity and respect--answered each and every question. Dr. Klafeta staff and his personal bedside manners are excellent.
