What Our Patients Are Saying


D. R.

Dr. Klonsky performed Umbilical Hernia surgery on my husband recently and we cannot say enough nice things. We appreciated his professionalism and knowledge throughout. My husband felt very comfortable and received excellent care at both Dr. Klonsky's Valley Stream practice and at LIJ Valley Stream hospital. All of his staff were very kind, patient and compassionate. All around great experience. If you need a general surgeon he comes highly recommended.

Jake C.

Couldn’t thank Dr Klonsky enough. He changed my life. I had a inguinal hernia that has to be taken care of. I went to see him and we scheduled my surgery a week and a half later. The pain was post op was minimal, and I was as nervous as nervous can possibly get before the surgery. I had surgery on a Monday, and was back at work the following Tuesday, (it was Memorial Day but I could have gone back Monday if my job was open for business) 10 out of 10 stars for Dr Klonsky. His staff is friendly and fast to reply if you need anything. Would highly recommend him to anybody thinking of getting this surgery

Mitchell W.

Dr Ira Klonsky is a highly skilled surgeon with vast experience and knowledge in his field. Dr Klonsky is loving and caring man who takes great pride in his work. I have had 3 Hernia surgeries with Dr Klonsky and I believe that the hand of God guides him. The incisions were done with such great precision that its hard to see them and I also had minimal scaring. I would highly recommend Dr Ira Klonsky to all. Thank you Dr Ira Klonsky for I am forever grateful

Tina L.

I had met with Dr.Klonsky for my hernia issue. He was very patient and clear of the surgery process. The surgery was planned about 2 weeks after the consult. I met again with Dr. Klonsky prior to the procedure. Everything went extremely well. I was up and walking almost immediately all with very little pain.

Charles L.

Surgery for my inguinal hernia repair by Dr. Klonsky went as well as I could have hoped for. It's now been 8 days since surgery, and I'm able to do my daily running at a moderate pace with no discomfort. Dr. Klonsky spent much time with me explaining all details about the procedure in my pre-surgery office visit, and made me feel very relaxed. I didn't feel like I was just another patient. My first follow up visit today also went very well. I followed all his advice, and things are going very well with no tightness or pain.
