      Dr. Klinepeter is a true example of how healthcare should be everywhere. He takes his time and is so patient with the babies. I felt like he had no where to go and we were his only patient. He truly listened to me.

      (Mom) I absolutely love visiting Dr. Klinepeter with my special needs daughter. He is very knowledgeable and he always speaks to us with respect and kindness. He listens well, and is very fast when I request to have a form completed, a prescription written for equiptment or a letter of recommendation for my daughter to get into a program of such. I feel very thankful that we are his patient. I don't know how he does it all. He's amazing to us.
