Patient Comments (1)
in Albuquerque, NM |
Dr. Klair is experienced, thorough, caring and interested in you as a patient and friend, not just as a paycheck. She is willing to refer you to a specialist if necessary but is not in the habit of recommending unneccesary procedures. I'm sorry I have moved to another state and cannot have Dr. Klair as my opthalmologist any longer.
