Dr Kleczka's office ran like a well oiled machine. reception was quick. even though I was early, I was called to an exam room within 5 minutes. the Fellow who attended to me came to the exam room within 5 minutes of the nurse/med tech leaving, and the Fellow came back with Dr Kleczka within 5 minutes after that. the whole thing ran smoothly. and everyone was very personable, attentive, respectful, and informative. could not have been a better visit. thank you.
