Dr. Klapper likes to tell his patients: "My father was a carpenter, my mother was a nurse, so I was destined to become an orthopaedic surgeon. The most important thing my father taught me was 'measure twice, cut once.'

Good health is essential to a child's growth and development. CaliforniaKids is a charitable, non-profit organization that provides children access to comprehensive primary and preventive health care services.  CaliforniaKids’ goal is to keep children healthy, rather than responding to health problems after they have developed.  For only $75 per child, per month, your child will have access to primary and preventive medical, dental and behavioral health care services.
