I was born and raised in Lexington, Ky. My wife, children and I are happy to be back in the Bluegrass, where I enjoy providing cutting-edge hand, wrist and elbow care for the region. I'm an avid UK sports fan and enjoy cheering and treating the athletes who wear the blue and white!

    He said to move my hand for mobility but didn't say how often or how long.

    Dr. Kluemper is the most well physician I have ever had. He is professional and knowledgeable and at the same time personal. I love that he is honest and realistic in discussing options, including his abilities and the risks of surgery. He truly listens and validates my experience with CRPS. He spends time without rushing. It feels like a heart to heart conversation with someone who really cares.

      Dr kleumper looks very young but is impressive in his diagnosis and listening skills. When insurance denies his requests he finds ways of still treating you and sometimes I wonder who is treating patients our drs or insurances

      I was very impressed with dr kleumper first visit I met him and after mri showing prob tear and sprain ligaments moreso in he read his own xrays instead just saying arthritis or degenerative disease and listened to me as person first visit. This 2nd or 4th followup I felt he had something on his mind which ive had lot death and people in icu lately so it couldve been me and he usually post letter after visit but hadnt yet. But I actually did recommend to lady that everyone keeps telling her its arthritis that she should see him.
