Dr. Ira M. Klemons's Ratings
I trust Dr. Klemons totally. The pain was really horrible. All the people were excellent.
After $500 out-of-pocket for tests that did nothing or explained nothing, I would suggest going elsewhere. I would also suggest that you go get second, third and fourth opinions from other doctors. I've seen six doctors already for my TMJ issue and the last two were VERY helpful in not only taking insurance, but also explaining me through the process and not giving me an unsettling feeling that I need to be urgent to take to his care. The most comforting feeling is when he sits me down with his 'financial' person who explains to me it would be approximately 8+ weeks or more to continue the treatment at a whooping average cost of $7k+ (minimum). I can't stress enough, get opinions from your other doctors before and/or after seeing this doctor to ensure you are getting the right guidance. I've always been an advocate of second and third opinions when it comes to my health and my money.
Dr Klemens really cares , He is doing remarkable work.
I would not recommend this doctor. I did not go through everything knowing that if it doesn't smell right, doesn't look right, it probably isn't. We have insurance for a reason, so that we use it.
I do not recommend this "doctor." I spent thousands of dollars in cash with no relief. Each visit is out of pocket and is at least near $400. I used this doctor for almost a year but couldn't afford him anymore and wasn't receiving any results for my TMJ. My chiropractor is $10 a visit and has worked extensively on my jaw and I now have significant improvement. If you are treating TMJ and are otherwise healthy, save yourself the money, time and frustration and find a chiropractor who specializes in TMJ treatment, like I did. No amount of head, neck and back injections from Klemons can compete to the healthier alternative.
I found dr. klemons on the internet and made an appointment immediately after seeing the immense amount of patients he helped out. He is genuine, compassionate, and got to the root of my problem after years of suffering. He didn't just medicate my symptoms. He cured my headaches and tmj after a few visits. I will miss dealing with him
I agree with the comments above. Very vague other than "I think we can help". You see him once than your off to cash draining procedures. On a weekly basis they ask you about your pain (to measure improvement) and when you tell them "no improvement" they always respond with "well it takes time" and lets try this new procedure. A waste of time!!!
I was suffering from constant headaches after being in an accident, I was referred to Klemons by a neurologist & my lawyer. Klemons assured me he could help me & was quick to whip out the testimonial book, point out his map of patients from around the world, & show-off his high-tech scanner. He confidently told me he could rid me of my headaches & also assured me that my car insurance would pay ("we always collect..." were his words). 30 days into treatment the claim was denied by the insurance company. Klemons again assured me that they "...always collect". 30 days later, the claim was again denied. He kept up the same dialogue. Well, the claim was eventually denied in arbitration & I got hit with a bill of $6200. The big problem is that NOT ONCE did Klemons ever check my blood pressure. I was taking motrin for pain. When I ended up in the ER for extremely high BP, I was informed that motrin increases BP and would cause the headaches. I stopped the medicine and my headaches ceased.
On my first appt I was encouraged to read binders of testimonials--letters from "happy patients" who swore Dr. Klemens changed their lives. Then he insisted he wouldn't take on a patient he feels he can't help, perhaps to instill confidence that he wasn't just after the big bucks.Of course, he felt he could help, though my migraines originate behind my head, not face or jaw. Not getting better, he added expensive injections to which he claimed "90% success." I did not. Months later he discharged me, acknowledging the treatment wasn't working. Naturally, I was not asked to add to the volumes of testimonials. I eventually recouped some of the cost back through my insurance company, but only after denials & lengthy appeals process with endless paperwork. Note:Use of HEATING PAD alone during nerve stimulation=$35, & when I balked at paying for written instructions (SERIOUSLY?), they waived that fee. (I do commend the staff who helped with insurance paperwork).
