Julia was great, as always. I really enjoy my appointments with her. She had a student with her and I enjoyed being part of the learning process as I learned some stuff too. I told Julia I had been off my medication due to insurance and financial difficulties. She made sure I knew about the financial assistance available so this doesn't happen again (I have insurance now). I thought I had called Dr. Dewitt's nurse about changing me to a less expensive medication but I may be mistaken.

February 01, 2014

Julia always takes the time need.

January 31, 2014

November 11, 2013


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.

August 15, 2013

If Julia Klein ever leaves ,I truly will not know what to do. She is that great of a care provider.We think she is just awesome.Please keep her around....

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

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.

August 05, 2013

July 01, 2013

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

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

November 05, 2012

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

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!

March 21, 2012
