Dr. Klapholz was very personable, and thoroughly listened to all of my concerns. He discussed the options I have if my asthma were to worsen, but was honest in saying I should just continue my regime considering the outstanding results ofmy PFT. I appreciated his sincerity and congeniality throughout our whole appointment. I would certainly recommend Dr. Klapholz.

The did not have my appointment on file. They called me the day before the appointment to confirm it, then when I got to my appointment, they said it was "yesterday". Thankfully, I had the confirmation email from them via ZocDoc,however I had to wait two hours to be seen, I was extremely late to work that day.

I would high discourage anyone from scheduling an appoint with Dr. Klapholz or any other physician that is associated with New York Cardiovascular Associates. Even though he was friendly and thorough, NYCVA might be the most dysfunctionalorganization I've encountered. I have tried calling their office at least 30 times over the past two weeks and not once have I spoken to a human being. Once to return their call to confirm appointment and another time to see why the prescription that was supposed to be sent to my pharmacy still wasn't received after two weeks. After calling several different phone numbers, trying various options within the phone menu, and leaving a few messages, I still haven't gotten through to the office. When I showed up for my appointment, they had no record of my appointment through Zocdoc or the fact that I had left a message. I ended up spending two hours at the office for what should've been a max 30 min appointment. If you value your time and sanity, please go anywhere else but NYCVA. You can thank me later.

Dr. Klapholz was very helpful in identifying and diagnosing my issue with Hypersomnia. He listened carefully and took notes as I gave information, and he quickly got me set up with a sleep study at the Sleep Lab. That was anot fun experience, but that's to be expected. His bedside manner is kind and thoughtful, and he is very knowledgeable. The office is well-run. I have never had to wait more than 5-10 minutes to see him. At my last appointment they were able to print off my records and files quickly while I waited.

Although the clinic is spectacular, the receptionist when you first come in is not professional at all. It seems she's just doing her job just to have a job. However, this is about Dr. Klapholz. He took care of me immediately.My appointment was at 8:00 a.m. and I was there bright and early. He seems thorough, knowledgeable, and ordered some exams for me to take. He seems to deal with the medical aspect of your issue which is totally great as this is why you are there for. However it would have been nice if he listened more since this was my first time as his patient and think that he shouldn't rush the process in his office.

I told Dr. Klapholz about my history with sleep apnea and that I needed to get another sleep study to get a new CPAP machine. He recognized that I was aware of my history and he sent me straight to thesleep lab. He was warm and kind during my appointment, albeit quick. I did wait a good 45-60 minutes to see him after my appointment time, and this was after I had already been rescheduled. His front desk staff was kind and respectful, which I found to be comforting as a transgender patient with discordant document information. The office is clean, well maintained and professional. The sleep lab is located a floor down, and it was helpful that I did not have to get a referral to another office to get retested, which occurred during my last sleep assessment. The staff there were able to accommodate my busy schedule and work with my insurance.

9am appointment but had to wait for 90 minutes to see the doctor. The receptionist was nice and quick. The assistant inside the patient only area seems unhappy. Doctor is very friendly, but the wait time is way too long. Recommendto have 8am appointment if you really want to get it done quickly.
