Julia is wonderful!

February 22, 2014

I appreciate the feeling that I get that Julia is truly concerned about my health. I also appreciate the honesty and straightforwardness she provides about my very not-straightfoward disease.

February 14, 2014

This being my last visit with Julia, as we are moving north, it was hard to say goodbye. I have had nothing but excellent care from Julia and feel it will be a challenge to find a care provider that will come close to her care.

February 01, 2014

Julia always takes the time need.

January 31, 2014

Julia was very good to meet with. Very easy to talk with. She uses language that us little people can understand. I was surprised with the amount of time with her and hope we did not put her behind schedule that day.

December 14, 2013

Julia Klein is always great to see, very positive.

December 12, 2013

Julia is always very informative and supportive!

November 18, 2013

Julia is awesome!

November 11, 2013

Wonderful.

October 22, 2013

I know I sound like a broken record and like I'm not really 'thinking' about the questions, but I've been coming for these semi-annual checkups for 8 years, and only once or twice in all that time have I been less than satisfied with the care received.

October 17, 2013

It's always a good experience with Julia Klein. She is easy to talk to and very knowledgeable.

October 04, 2013

Never a bad experience with Julia Klein. She always spends enough time in the office with me to discuss any issues I may have. I never feel rushed and she is very personable.

September 19, 2013

Julia was excellent in every use of the word. She wasn't dismissive and she didn't coddle me either. Enough cannot be expressed with how impressed I am with my visit. She even extended the visit into personal time of hers. (Information that she did not offer, but had to discover as the lights were off when we left.) She expressed a genuine interest in my condition and was very well humored.

September 09, 2013

Julia Klein is fantastic and I appreciate her so much. Without her care and concern I don't think I would be doing as well as I am today. I actually look forward to my bi-annual appointments which is so rare to say about anyone. Please pass on to her my sincerest thanks for her taking such good care of me.

September 03, 2013

Julia always ensures we understand all questions and waits and listens as we explain what's going on with Mom. She isn't just a care provider - she's our friend.

September 02, 2013

Julia was great, explained the procedure to me in a way the I could understand and pretty much relax! she is really a wonderful person.

September 01, 2013

August 12, 2013

Judith Klein is wonderful. Very caring and thorough. I've never sent a medical provider flowers before, but I sent her flowers to say "Thank you" for spending time and reviewing my medical history and condition.

August 05, 2013

I really appreciate how Julia takes the time to talk-realizing that more than "medical issues" effect my disease. I feel totally at ease when at my appointments, as I know she has my best interests in mind!

August 05, 2013

Julia is an outstanding care provider, treating me with such gentle humanity and sensitivity I will truly miss when we make our move from this area.

Very good experience

June 30, 2013

Julia is great, easy to talk with and knowledgeable.

June 30, 2013

when I first saw Julia I was so impressed. when I was first diagnosed with MS I saw a neurologist at the SL Clinic. I didn't have a good connection with her - I felt she said you have MS so deal with it. My first meeting with Julia was so different - she said to me "I can"t cure your MS but I will do everything I can to help you manage it" and that is exactley what she is doing.

June 26, 2013

I always receive excelent care from the University of Utah Health Center.

June 03, 2013

We LOVE her! She is amazing. We always talk about her when we leave. She never makes me feel that my condition is impossible to work with. And I leave feeling good about everything, and that I will be okay. Thanks Julia we love you!

May 25, 2013

I recommend this clinic to anyone with MS. I can't imagine getting better care elsewhere. I actually look forward to my semi-annual visits at the clinic

May 23, 2013

very good

May 22, 2013

Love Julia! Glad that I found someone close to work and home. I used to commute down to Utah County for a sub-par experience!

May 19, 2013

Julia Klein is very thorough in her exams and always listens to what you have to tell her. She answers all your questions and is always pleasant and nice. She even had her assistant send to Ogden Regional to get my latest lab reports that I had done a month ago and went over them. I've seen her for many years and really like her.

May 17, 2013

Good job Julia

May 17, 2013

I am relieved to be in a place with a group of people who have my well being in mind.

May 16, 2013

I can't imagine not having Julia Klien as my provider. She has been extremely kind and attentive to my needs. She has become a very close person to me and my family.

May 04, 2013

Sometimes I get the feeling that she doesn't understand all the problems that go along with ms and the side effects of the medication but I don't think anybody does unless they've actually experienced it. , I think she is as empathic as she can be

May 03, 2013

The MOST positive neuro consultation I have had in 23 years. Very professional and educational.

April 30, 2013

Excellent Julia & Dr. Rose have been my care providers for about 32 years and I've never had a bad experience

February 12, 2013

Julia is always very professional and kind. She is excellent at explaining things. MS is a scary disease and she always makes me feel informed.

January 31, 2013

I couldn't be happier with Julia! She made me feel at ease, took her time to be sure to explain things/talk to me about my condition, and tell me what our next stop might be.

January 27, 2013

Julia is an excellent care provider. She spends an extra amount of time processing each dilemma and concern. We have a very unique connection in which she can connect on a patient/dr level and that is admirable.

January 17, 2013

Julia is a great P.A., she explains things well and makes me feel at easy about my M.S.

January 17, 2013

All was completely Satisfactory.

October 12, 2012

Thank you Julia!

September 10, 2012

I love dr Klein. She is straight forward, which is really important. And she has a sarcastic side, which makes me laugh and lightens the mood. She shows genuion concern. I feel comfortable getting on a personal level with her about certain subjects.

September 10, 2012

I have complete confidence and extreme expectations of my care provider, Julia Klein. The visit was very thorough, and even went over time as to remedy some of the time lost as she needed to type every note, measurement, and future lab reuqest into my chart. I was given thorough suggestions to medications, referrals and personal feedback. My treatment is always her first concern and she always explains and explores every avenue to the best of her knowledge and will even consult others on the team. Julia is a top notch medical specialist. What happened in the check in area is not her fault, and I hope these concerns can be separated.

August 12, 2012

Julia sent me home with literature to review then discussed it on the next visit

August 06, 2012

Julia is a very nice, experienced person!

great

April 25, 2012

I felt cared about by everyone while I was at the clinic.

April 23, 2012

I have complete confidence in Julia's plan to help determine a course of action from here. She truly heard my concerns. Even made me feel good about my walking ability and that it was ok to ask for help when I needed a 'ride' instead of overexerting myself walking too far.

April 09, 2012

Julia isn't just our care giver, she's become our friend over the years.

April 09, 2012

Dr. Klein was awesome!
