Even if they don’t ask us, we know that many patients wonder whether we always recommend treatment. The answer is absolutely not!
To begin with, many conditions are self-limiting. That means they get better on their own. In those cases, the doctor may recommend home remedies or exercises, or no treatment at all.
In other cases, the cause of the problem is not within our sphere of expertise and the most appropriate recommendation is to treat with a specialist in a different field. Following are a few examples of the thousands of patients whom we told did not require treatment here.
“Dr. Klemons was more thorough than the last ten specialists I saw, and I was really impressed by his honesty when he told me to treat with a different type of doctor.” - Deborah C.
“I had high hopes coming here to see Dr. Klemons. He was a completely straight-up guy. He knew I needed help. Even though he scheduled a three hour appointment, he didn’t charge me because he knew right away that I would be better off with a different kind of doctor. You can’t ask for anything better than that.” - Frank L.
“I’m so glad Dr. Klemons said I don’t need any treatment.” - Ivan J.
“I was really looking forward to treatment with Dr. Klemons and made the trip from New York. I was very impressed by his extensive and painless testing and the fact that he was so honest that he did not recommend treatment even though I really wanted it.” - Louis L.
“This was the most enjoyable doctor’s office I’ve ever been in. I almost wish that Dr. Klemons recommended treatment - but he didn’t feel it was necessary.” - Patricia H.
“It was truly a worthwhile trip coming from Utah. Dr. Klemons gave me the most thorough examination I ever had. I finally don’t have to panic about my problem. I was really surprised that he told me he didn’t need to treat me.” - Ralph A. (Utah)
"I was referred to Dr. Klemons for severe jaw and ear pain. I was impressed by his honesty when he told me that the pain was coming from another part of my body and referred me to a different doctor for treatment. " - Mary S.
“This was the most educational, informative, and pleasurable doctor’s visit I’ve ever had - and I’ve been to a lot of doctors. Everyone is so nice. I feel very comfortable here, and it’s good to know that Dr. Klemons does not believe I need treatment.” - Edwina L.
