Tons of valuable information. Tells me all about the results of the tests my dr. ordered but did not have the time to go over with me.


Dr. Klaper has done a fabulous job of explaining what the results of all the different tests that your doctor orders for you actually mean! This video is definitely my “aha” moment.


Lots of excellent information. He has the ability to take a complex subject and make it both interesting and informative. Would highly recommend!!
