She was great

August 03, 2016

On my 2nd visit (July 15), the doctor spent more time looking at my rash and prescribed an ointment instead of just giving me samples of moisturizer to use (1st visit on July 14).

September 27, 2015

the MD was great she gave me her number and said to call the next day if i needed more help; It was a pretty standard problem and the fact that she spent a small amount of time is not a bad thing she knew what it was and helped me solve it. I talk about med with the MD but I ended up taking a different one

September 27, 2015

Dr. Klein was so knowledgable. I felt very confident in her assessment of my issues. She is not terribly warm, somewhat of a flat affect. Though I did think she was a great listener. And as long as the doctor is smart, clear, up to date on research, and well informed, that's what counts. And she had that in spades.

September 07, 2015

I was confused about a follow up appointment. It was just kind of "here you go" and done. When I asked the nursing assistent, his response was "um I'm not sure." he kind of looked around confused and at that point I needed to get back to work so said it was fine and left.
