Professional Statement

Doctor Klem has been a family physician for over twenty years in rural, suburban, and urban environments. As a family physician he truly enjoys partnering with patients in caring for the whole person, as well as the whole family. From newborns to those nearing the end of life, and all those in between, he enjoys not only helping those when they are ill, but thoroughly enjoys an emphasis on illness prevention. He loves the variety that family medicine provides, as well as the opportunity to get to know and care for patients over the long term. The relationships that develop are special, and having the time to spend on prevention and education is especially rewarding.

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.
