Verified Patient Reviews
Knowledgeable and informative, but casual and personable. Not a rushed, distant, or distracted experience that often occurs with Doctors.
It was good, didn't take too long. I do recommend him. Friendly staff.
He was very professional and very thorough with his presidure . I highly recommend him
Dr. Kletz was so nice, caring and engaged. I waited 6mins to be seen which was fantastic. He was very transparent about My and all cost as it related to what insurance would cover or not. His office staff was thorough and friendly as well. GREAT PLACE!
I went in for a wart removal and it went great! Dr. Kletz was very nice and went over the procedure before he did it. After he administered the local anesthetic, the procedure only took about two minutes! I would definitely recommend Dr. Kletz.
The office waiting room was really crowded and the wait was very long, making the initial experience less than pleasant. However, Dr. Kletz was thorough and quick, explaining issues in a way that my 11 year old daughter could understand. He came across as both competent and caring with a good humor mixed in despite the crowds waiting for him.
It was ok
Loved everything but the location of the office
My toe Is still not healed called for guidance was advised to come back in for appointment which I did and he stated everything is healed and it looks great.... But the toe still had pain I had the ingrown nail removal Jan 11th 2017 it is now 05/28/2017 and my toe is still not healed called again to let them know he was like he doesn't know whats going on it should be healed! worst experience ever!
The Dr.. was over the top on professionalism. He was friendly and courteous. Impossible not to like him. Would never have found him without your service.
Office staff and Dr. Kletz were extremely pleasant to interact with. Would highly recommend them.
This Doctor is fantastic. Very intelligent and knowledgeable. Also he is great with patients.
I like him. He is personable, quick to identify the problem and got to the solution. His work is professional and I am satisfied. I have seen him twice and will see him again soon. Maybe its his East Texas flava and he is less than 5 minutes from my home
Dr. Kletz knows his profession well. He was able to offer a treatment plan that was appropriate for my symptoms. I found comfort in his conservative approach. I would recommend him for anyone having problems with their feet.
Great results! Appointment quick, staff friendly, Doctor very personable. NO COMPLAINTS!!!!
Excellent doctor Good sense of humor. He didn't mind my husband's jokes.
I must say my visit went rather well. The only issue was trying to get my prescription sent to the right location. No fault of the staff though the information in the system needed to be updated and they took care of it.
Dr. Kletz is an excellent doctor with a good sense of humor, however the wait, even if you get here early, seems to be inevitable. The three times I've been here have resulted in long waits and it's been frustrating seeing people come in well after myself and still get seen before me.
I had an appointment @ Dr Keltz Office I was running late But I was seen in good time very professional. I just recommended him to my Brother-in-law
Very friendly staff. The Dr was just funny enough to put you at ease while he sticks a big needle in your foot. I would definitely recommend him.
This was a wonderful experience and I can't wait till I see him again, to fix the rest of my problems.
200% satisfied with the doctor and the staff. Highly recommend Dr. Kletz and already have to several friends. Appointment was 5/26/15 at 10:15 Am and I was seen at 9:50 AM.
Very friendly and professional he knows what is is talking about and doing.
The doctor and staff were very nice and I would highly recommend this doctor to all my friends.
When I was talking to my boyfriend, who also had an appointment that day, the doctor made a hilarious joke about how women talk too much. Then he made an even funnier joke and told me to put the x-ray bib over my mouth so I'd stop talking. Boy oh boy, nothing like paying a professional adult to make sexist comments and then think it's funny. Then when he asked what I do for a living and I told him I'm a receptionist, he said, "So you don't do anything." Awesome! He also likes degrading my work even though he has no idea what I do! I told him he's insulting and he tried backpedalling. Unacceptable. Absolutely unacceptable.
Very personable and informative, Covered all options well.
Very pleased with entire experience. Just a few blocks from my home. Staff very pleasant. Will use again if needed. Dr. Kletz explained procedure and after care
The problem wasn't with the Dr., his receptionists were unprofessional and rude. They let me go through the entire Dr. Visit, book another appointment, then tell me about my co pay. In that exact order. I was told it was my responsibility to know the benefits of my insurance and that seeing a specialist was going to be a higher co pay. Everything she told me was in a scripted voice. I paid my co pay and cancelled my future booking. I'm never going back again.
Make sure you check with your insurance that they will actually pay for whatever procedure and/or footwear they claim they're going to pay for. This office and Dr. Kletz say "90% of the time this is covered" and they had "checked with my insurance" but neither of those were true and I was stuck with a hefty bill. Read everything before you sign anything.
Answered all my questions....we discussed all options regarding ankle problem....he was open & honest which I appreciate
Terrific visit and results...!!!
I thought he was nice, professional with a good sense of humor. I would recommend him to others once my foot feels better!
Very professional. Explained everything about the procedure.
I really enjoyed the visit because he was opened on a Saturday!! Dr. Kletz was very professional, and took his time to explain the procedure. I would definitely recommend Dr. Kletz.
I really did like the entire staff!! The woman at the front desk was very warm and friendly over the phone and in person. Dr Kletz was very nice, friendly and he has very high and positive energy. I have no problem returning for care.
He was very informative and helped me with my issue immediately. I would definitely recommend him to my friends and family; in fact, I have done so already. Dr. Kletz is now my foot doctor as long as he is in practice.
He loves his job. He is also good with his patients!
Very nice and knowledgeable. Shared range of options which I liked.
It was good. We were very satisfied because he gave us options as to treatment.
Very professional, knowledgeable, and kind, accompanied by a compassionate bedside manner!
He is good , the front desk personel runs off more business the anything. That is the problem . Poor customer relations.
The entire office visit was pleasant. There weren't a lot of long tedious forms to fill out. The receptionist took my ID and insurance cards (as she informed me about during the time I set the appointment), and had me electronically sign a couple of documents. Then I sat in the lobby just long enough to check my email on my phone and they were already calling me back. Dr. Kletz was nice and had good bedside manner. He was thorough and quickly diagnosed my problem and began working on a solution. He was sure to ask if I had any questions; and although this was my first time visiting this office, I knew before I left that I was going to come back. I would highly recommend Dr. Kletz.
Very nice and doesn't keep you waiting
I like Dr. Kletz very much. He has a nice personality, easy to talk to, very nice staff and the foot issues I've seen him about have been taken care of accurately and quickly.
I can't recommend him highly enough. A doctor who really cares! Wow!
He was very personable and knowledgeable. We came up with a plan to eliviate the problem.
The doctor was very efficient and figured out my problem right away. Will definitely continue to see him.
One of the nicest,professional doctors i've had the privilege to meet,thank you Dr. Kletz.
Short wait time. Dr. Kletz spent time and got to know me as a patient. Great first impression. Was able to get an appointment quickly and his staff was great.
welcoming atmosphere in the office. Dr. Kletz was pleasant, and focused on my problem. Involved me in making the decision regarding treatment.
With problem with office PC, he answered two cell calls rather than deligate to staff. Gave insurance info when 1st appt made; they called again for that info. . .leaving office, they asked againwhen I left they asked for it again. . . Asst did not understand a drug category vs. a script type. Medicare was charged for consult but no outcome other than elastic for hammer toe [too constricting]. Given that, I have cancelled follow-up appt. That appt precedes next appt, for that day, for another patient.
Dr Kletz is a true profession. He asks the right questions, explains all the treatment options and relieved the health problem(s) associated with my feet. What a relief!
Good options and very professional would highly recommend
