Ratings for Dr. Hagen Klieb
Nice staff all around, but not much more to say about this doctor in a positive light. He comes across as a young hotshot eager to assign blame to the patient more than discuss pertinent issues. Very disappointed after the cost and the wait with this practitioner. Dr. Klieb, if you don't have answers just be honest instead of spending time belittling/labeling patients and practicing "doctor punishment" with extended wait times for follow-ups. It serves no one.
Dr. Klieb is one of the most thoughtful, competent, compassionate doctors I've had, and I've gone through cancer, so I've come across a lot of doctors and specialists. I have an odd auto-immune problem that's a bit unusual, and he's genuinely interested in it, and me as a patient. He never rushes, is extremely thorough in his examinations, then he gives me time to think about what questions I might have, returns and answers each and every one of them. He even shares his thoughts on general well-being, above and beyond what many doctors might do. He's a really lovely, generous-spirited person. I feel so lucky to have been referred to him and I've been seeing him for about 3 years. I actually look forward to seeing him. I feel like I'm in the best possible hands with Dr. Klieb.
If you get a chance to meet with Dr. Klieb, don't ever refuse it. He is a good doctor who knows his subject and actually tries to learn about your issue and diagnose it correctly. He also treats the patient unless the rest of the educated goofs who are a waste of time. Dr. KIieb is pleasant, explains the problem and makes sure to have follow-up visits that are meaningful. I am very happy with Dr. Klieb and you will be too. Previously met with Dr. Poonam Rajan a dermatologist and another dermatologist Dr. Wadid Abadir ( both not from SunnyBrook). Neither of them actually treated me, and I must say that Dr. Wadid was so bad, I will say he is ignorant about dermatological issues and should be avoided at all costs.
I have been going to Dr. Hagen Klieb for many years (maybe 17 years) and I have found him to be the best doctor I have ever been to. I agree fully with all the positive remarks on here. The negative remarks from October 6, 2016 must be a mistake! They must have got the doctor's name wrong. If this was an emergency to see someone sooner, then just had to phone and explain the urgency and they will give you an earlier appointment. I have done this and most often they have another spot for me. Dr. Hagen Klieb is patient, caring, kind and very informative. I go to him 3 or 4 times a year from Alliston for me serious, incurable condition. My dentist advised me to stay with him, because he is the best there is for me.
Met with Dr. Kleib and was really happy with the appointment. He was so patient with us, answered all of our concerns, explained everything in great detail all the while reassuring us. He has a sense of humour and we were totally at ease with his manner. Mind you, it was all good news and I could have kissed him!
Dr. Klieb earns his rating hands down. From the moment you meet him, you have his full attention and concern for your issue. There was no sense of being rushed, no sense of apathy. He as others have stated; the real deal. He comes back asking if you have thought of any more questions. Particularly as I am from North Bay, a four hour drive North, he insisted on setting up my secondary consult on the week after I met with him, to coincide with my mri appointment at UHN. Is that caring or What? He understands others by placing his shoes in their situation. Bless this good Man and Fine Doctor!
We had a very terrible experience with this doctor. We waited two months for an appointment for my elderly father - who was struggling with a number of issues. He was very late to the appointment and his bedside manner was terrible. He spent about two minutes with us, made no eye contact, threw out a diagnosis with no explanation and was clearly rushed and irritated to be there - there was no explanation, he had no time to answer questions or discuss the medication he wanted my dad to take, completely rude. The poor nurse who was with him and he kept barking at clearly felt how inappropriate his behaviour was and she stayed afterward to explain the diagnosis and apologize. Our experience was at sunnybrook and I believe others have had a similar experience. I understand that he's educated and makes a lot of money and clearly feels he is much better than others but his behaviour was disgusting and shameful for Sunnybrook to employ someone who is so dismissive of ill patients. Avoid this doctor!
