19/12/13 5 5 5 5 Dr Klein correctly diagnosed my injury immediately. Many other doctors ordered expensive MRIs and XRays, but couldn't diagnose my problem. Dr Klein reccommended an inexpensive course of treatment. Feeling better already!

03/12/13 1 1 1 3 Regarding staff: I found them condescending. Keep saying "I don't understand" I had an accident and staff asked nonsense questions (what kind of hay were you moving?????). I felt that the staff attitude was I (staff) am ok and you (patient)are not ok regarding economics or intellect. Very condescending. Dr. Klein did not offer an information, education or instruction regarding my fracture, treatment or home care.

11/02/10 1 3 1 3 The staff are the rude, generally. Long waits on phone. Ridculous policy for X-Ray to call them 10 minutes before you go get the X-Ray = no joke.

27/03/09 3 2 3 3 I had bursitis; got appointment the morning I called; office staff not helpful but that is generic to all doctor office; i found the doctor reasonable and seemed skilled; he wanted to give me cortisone shot but I wanted to investigate that further but when i called back office would not let me see him same day as no appointments available even though it would take only a minute for him to give shot; no appointments for a week; office made me get five x rays before appointment; doctor spent only two minutes with me and curosily looked at only one x ray but in fairness to him, asked me if i had any more questions and answered all my questions; is surgeon but i have no basis to judge his surgical abilities; did not pressure me to get shot right away; seemed comfortable with my hesitation; when i called back, office said he has no further appointments till next week; doctor gave the general impression of confidence and competence but feedback that he gives bad shots bothers me
