Ratings for Dr. Gunther Klein
I have been suffering with severe headaches for years that my previous doctor often overlooked and just wrote me a prescription for and sent me off. After moving out west and seeing Dr Klein a total of two times, he saw that something wasn't right and immediately sent me for further testing. I was surprised at the results and realized I had been treating myself for a condition that I didn't even have for years. We sat and went over all of my symptoms and came up with a plan of attack for my pain. I felt heard, I felt empathy and for the first time in a long time I felt validated.He never once made me feel silly or stupid or like it was all in my head. I left his office and I cried from relief in my car. I feel fully confident that if this isn't the answer for my pain, Dr. Klein will help me figure it out.
I went to the walk-in hoping to have some blood work done while Dr. Klein was working. He was incredibly friendly, considerate and professional. He took the time to ask how I was doing and to answer all my questions and concerns. He really went above and beyond with my care. Dr. Klein is an exceptionally knowledgeable physician, with wonderful listening skills and most importantly, someone that truly cares. Thank you so much for seeing me.
No bedside manner. Give me trouble for bringing my son in to see if he had strep throat. Told me He hates when people waste his time with a common cold. My son had been in bed for a week with a sore throat and fever Also my son has some special needs that we call invisible issues because he looks good on the outside but a bit jumbled on the inside and he totally embarrassed him being more concerned about his acne. Not the reason we were there. Will not go there again. I don't even want to rate him a one.
no bedside manor and thinks that if it is not in a book, it cant be happening... open your mind up or get a different job... doesnt even know his own patients/recall their file when it is right in front of him. terrible. looking for another doctor -- he is extremely rude with his facial expressions too. read him like a book, and he has zero care for what you are trying to tell him. the staff in that place are awfully rude too, seems as tho no one is happy in the office.
told my husband that he is a mystery patient and could not figure out what was wrong with him. turns out he needed his gallbladder out. even I knew the classic symptoms sweating when eating fatty foods etc. found a much better dr and problem solved. also tried to give me hormone pills for my menopause symptoms and when I voiced my concern over breast cancer with these pills his answer was only a handful of women will develop breast cancer. so I should play russion roulette with my body! no thanks
I started seeing Dr. Klein when he was in Willow Point. Kind of a pain at the walk-in-clinic, as you can't book appointments. Too bad, because I like Dr. Klein and he seems caring. His staff all knew me by name - made an oops once with confidentiality, but realized the mistake and apologized. Regardless, I realized it was a conflict of interest to attend the same clinic as my ex-husband and moved on.
what I would give to have him as my docor gain.I was one of his first patients when he came to campbell river.I have a rare bladder disease which he took the time to gain as much knowledge as he could about it.He always made me feel very cared for.I miss him horribly
This Dr. should not be practicing at all! I have stress disorder & he practically laughed at my concerns & attempted to prescribe anti depressants for my anxiety. He displayed a total lack of knowledge for my condition. I am afraid for other patients who may be mishandled & laughed at by this doctor. When i returned the prescription unused with a note complaining to him about his mis diagnosis, he had me banned from the clinic entirely, denying me any further care from any of the doctors who share his clinic. Are we as Canadians so desperate for doctors that we will accept incompetence & total lack of compassion from foreign doctors? I have never had this sort of experience from my doctors at "associated physicians" in sidney. The "associated physicians" always displayed kindness & fairness in their assessments. I get one prescription a year for a sedative to help my anxiety. Dr. Klein acused me of being a drug addict. I think he is the one who is on something.
