I'd known my previous dr. for 50 years - This was an anxiety ridden step for me to take, I just had to get through it - everything seemed fine -

Dr. Klem overall is a pretty good Dr. My previous Dr. who was at Swedish and retired had been my Dr. for 17 years so I do compare the two which might not be a good thing. I feel Dr. Klem is more on the quieter side of the spectrum but that is just me giving an opinion not a complaint.
