10! This provider is top notch! Dr. Klatt is respectful, listens and is responsive. With the issues he is helping me with, I really like MyChart and he is very good and getting back to me in a timely fashion.

Dr. Klatt is a very nice provider. He shows you that he cares about you and your health. He also takes the time out to explain everything in full detail so that I can understand it. I really like having him as my provider.

Dr. Klatt is the best! Helped take care of my issue in a thorough yet timely manner.

Everyone was excellent – impressed that all trainees (nursing & medical student & residents) introduced themselves in pre-op.

Dr. Klatt is an amazing doctor. He always listens and helps come up with options. He truly cares about his patients. I recommend him to every woman who is or isn’t looking for an ob/gyn. I have had some difficult health issues and he has always made sure I was safe, comfortable and aware. I trust him and his care. His team at Froedtert is great & very helpful. I hope Dr. Klatt practices for many years to come.

Dr. Timothy Klatt was a pleasure to work with throughout my pregnancy. I, unfortunately, had a difficult postpartum course which required a second hospitalization. Dr. Klatt facilitated the care I received in the Emergency Department in thoroughly discussing my case with the ED staff and OB on-call physician. This eased my mind. Dr. Klatt’s expertise and experience makes him a very trustworthy physician.

Dr. Timothy Klatt was my OB here in Cleveland, Ohio. He was one of the best and most kindest individual I know as a doctor. He completed two surgeries on me and not one left a mark!!!! He delivered my son back in 1997 at University Hospital and just to have a kind man as such, is truly a God sent!!!

I remember when he told me his was expecting for the first time, he was so excited. Following year when he was excited about her expecting for the second. The Glow on his face made me rejoice with him.

When Dr. Klatt informed me of his relocating, I was indeed sad by it. But I understood the transition to move on.

Dr. Timothy Klatt, you are AWESOME and WELL MISSED!!!!

After having a complicated, yet successful, first pregnancy, it was my faith in Dr. Klatt’s expertise and patient-care that aided my decision to have another child. I earnestly believe that I owe much of the success of my pregnancy and my beautiful boy to Dr. Klatt’s knowledge and prudent approach to medicine.

Dr. Klatt is a great doc, your facility is lucky to have him.

Dr. Klatt and medical assistant, Cindy are just wonderful. They are very kind and have a pleasant attitude each and every time. They both deserve recognition. You just don’t find no one like that now a days!! Very professional.

Dr. Timothy Klatt is a phenomenal physician.  I feel extremely blessed to have him as my OB/GYN.

Dr. Klatt LISTENS. He explains everything well. He does not feel the need to ‘prove’ his knowledge, but rather shows care and concern while addressing questions and discussing the course of action for the remainder of my pregnancy. Dr. Klatt is also willing to ‘protect’ (or shield) me from those who are compelled to exhibit all their knowledge through pressing for tests and procedures without listening to and acting upon my concerns and convictions as a patient.
