Specialties

Dr. Jacob A Klapper has the following 3 specialties

  • Thoracic Surgery (Cardiothoracic Vascular Surgery)
  • Vascular Surgery

    Vascular surgeons treat and manage disorders in your veins, arteries and your lymphatic system to ensure blood circulation in your heart and in brain is the best it can be. They're well-versed on how your vascular system works with the rest of your body and they can treat conditions that may cause blockages or buildup.
    They can perform many of the same diagnostic testing as interventional radiologists can, such as angiography and MRIs. In addition to diagnosis, they provide critical care and treatment for aneurysms, artery blockages and trauma injuries that involve your veins. They can also help patients manage diabetes, blood pressure and cholesterol as well as treat artery disease. Treatment for more serious cases might include bypass surgery or surgery to remove plaque.

I wouldn't recommend Dr.Jacob Klapper to anyone at all. He is truly short in responses when you ask him a questions. He supposed to be skilled but he's lack of answering what should be simple questions to a doctor seem to indicate that he is lacking knowledge and skills. He would say I would heal in due time. He done surgery on me 6 months ago and I'm still in pain. I wasn't having pain in my abdomen before he did my surgery. It unbearable he also said that after my surgery he need to keep an eye on my progress for one year. That was a lie I return for a recheck my incisions had a lot of swelling and develop fluid in my right lung. This doctor and his team started yelling at me like I was a dog. My brother said why are all of you yelling she's sick. So no I wouldn't recommend this man to any one at all.

Impressed!

Dr Klapper performed major surgery to remove my cancerous esophagus with great success! This man,I feel, saved my life! He was in my room every day during recovery and always spent as much time as needed to explain anything I asked. I can,t say enough to express how thankful I am to him. Bless you Dr. K.

Extremely Impressed

I took my father to meet with Dr Klapper today, and we were both quite impressed with his willingness to come into the room and sit down and answer our questions without being in a hurry at all. He seemed genuinely concerned about my fathers level of care during his melanoma treatment including what the upcoming surgery would involve. By the time we met with the oncology department less than 2 hours later he had already taken the time to personally meet with oncology to map out an agreed upon plan for the best option for treatment. Dr Klapper went over and above to ensure our questions were answered and that we both were at ease with the treatment decision. Would highly recommend this Dr to a friend.
