A Good Doctor

Dr. Klimkowski is an excellent doctor who knows his stuff and is very caring. I give him the 5 star review because he personally deserves it but I do agree with the comment about how the hospitals now control the doctors. There has been a big difference in how appointments are handled since he has joined the "group". But, he is still the best....

Paycheck doctor

I love Dr. K he is a great doctor but since joining with the Hospital he has become a doctor who only cares about his paycheck. There is a lot of gray area as a patient that if you reschedule to many times or do not follow the strict insane hospital policy you will be FIRED yes FIRED as his patient. Or if you cause his score or grade to go down which he will lose money from you will be fired! Something as little and crazy as not getting weighed or going to have a test done that is currently being pushed by the hospital. I am truly disappointed in how an amazing and caring doctor can go from being one of the best and provide the best care for his patients to being all about a paycheck.
