About Me:

My philosphy is straight forward: when you have a good primary care physician, with easy access to care and we have a good relationship, you will find that most of your problems can be handled as an outpatient. Your health and life depend on you having someone you can talk to and be heard by. I believe that good public health is the primary basis for all of healthcare. Public health comes in many forms, but over my career I have become concerned about a form of public health I call spiritual public health. I believe each of us is continuously growing and developing in many ways throughout our lives. My mid-life work has taught me the value and importance of developing our souls. I believe every stage of life has a spiritual journey which needs development and expression. To the extent we are successful at this development, we will have good spiritual public health. Hobbies include: Hiking, Music, Photography, Art, Hunting, Gardening

Patient Rating

Legacy wants every patient to have great care, every time. To help measure and improve patient satisfaction, we send surveys to randomly selected patients after their appointments. We use this feedback from the surveys to improve and enhance the care we offer. It works like this: Real patients give us feedback through Press Ganey, a patient satisfaction survey company. They verify and confirm the results. National Research Corporation, an independent company, provides the technology to show the ratings and comments on our website

Every single time I go see Dr. Climer, I feel like I visit with friends who are really concerned about my health. From Victoria, at the front desk, to Roberto, Dr. Climer's assistant, I feel like an old friend. Unfortunately, they have set the bar so high, NO OTHER provider team could possibly meet their standard. I dread the day, which will most certainly come, when I will have to have another provider. Dr. Climer is the fulcrum for this team, and I feel I can tell him ANYTHING without judgement. As I've stated, this TEAM makes me feel safe and secure regarding my healthcare. This team has also accepted my new wife, with her own medical issues, as part of the "family". I understand the dangers of becoming too "close" with patients, but good lord, it's nice to know your medical team CARES. THAT has it's own medical benefits that can not be measured.

I think Dr. Climer is the best MD I've ever had! He listens to me, remembers my history, family and is very open to discussing my health options. I have, and will continue, to highly recommend Dr. Climer as an excellent PCP.

I really appreciate that Dr Climer listens to me and doesn't find ways to brush off what I say as unimportant or just my imagination. He always listens and seems to really care!I've already referred several people to this clinic and Dr Climer.

Because of past doctors I'm always nervous going to doctors appointment. Between the kindness of the receptionist and nursing assistant it helped set me at ease. The doctor listened asked questions with patience & kindness.

Please inform Dr. Climer that due to climate change, weather records are broken on nearly a daily basis and have been doing so for decades.

the girls that took blood pressure & information before the doctor comes in were very abrupt & hurried; very short with me. They admitted they were behind but it should not reflect in their attitudes with patients. Usually Dr Climer has friendly people not hurried robots that slam-out their questions to me like it was a speed test!!

I never feel rushed and I always feel like Dr. Climer listens to any concerns I have about my medications or symptoms and explains thoroughly. I feel like I can trust him regarding my health care. My check in nurse who also drew blood was excellent. One of the reasons I picked this clinic and drive a bit further is everyone working goes out of their way to be kind, helpful, and friendly. I've never had a bad experience.

Upon leaving, following this visit, I thought that I especially liked this doctor, because he is so easy to talk with, so easy going, so kind, and thoughtful, all the reasons why I chose him in the beginning, when I was looking for a doctor years ago.

I am a pre-existing patient with Dr. Climer. Have seen him for several Internal Med. issues...as well as seeing Dr. Warren Okuns.All I have to say is: THANK GOD FOR DR. CLIMER!! He really looks over my computer record, while finding out what problem I am having at present!! When one can NOT be given a timely appointment with Doctor one normally sees, and one is forced to seek Urgent Care treatment, there is something wrong with that. This time I requested an urgent spot. with Dr. Climer and got it....Dr.. Okuns, as before, could not be accessed until way in July. I have a pre-existing spot. with him first July, which was scheduled a couple of months ago....but could NOT see him on an urgent, re-occuring U.T.I. matter before July...again.THANK GOD FOR DR. CLIMER! With pockets stick resting of Urine Spec., he found I have SAME U.T.I. I had a few months ago and Rx'd proper Antibiotic....plus, ordered blood drawn for two other very important issues.Dr.. Climer knows me and us like a shrewd Detective going through my computer record...C.T's , X-Rays, at all. He very rarely misses anything.My hat's off to him!!
