Dr. Klas has been practicing medicine in El Dorado County since 1989. He
graduated from medical school in 1986 and completed his residency at the
University of Washington, and is also board certified in sports medicine.
Dr. Klas and his wife and three daughters enjoy spending time in "the
great outdoors of this county."
In Dr. Klas' own words: "As a family practice doctor in Placerville
for over 20 years I've enjoyed caring for people of all ages - infants
to centenarians. I strive to solve a patient's health issues in the
context of a patient's entire health and social situation. I work
with my patients to empower them to explore workable prevention and health
maintenance options. For many people practicing a healthy lifestyle will
keep them from coming to a physicians very often and that type of education
is a fundamental element of my family practice."
