Dr Klena is the most knowledgeable man I have ever met. His bedside manner is so comforting. The first conversation that he and I had, I knew he would do his best to take care of me, and that he did. 7 days post op and doing remarkably well. I am a testament to his talent. I will be forever greatful.
