Patient Ratings and Comments
About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

This was a wrap-up visit after more than 15 years working together. I have to leave because of insurance changes (but would stay if there was any possible way I could). Not only did Dr. Klein deal with my health issues, but made me confident in my new provider and in the communication between old and new. She was taking care of me as a whole person. I'm heartbroken to leave her.

Dr. Klein has been my PCP for 20 years. She's very serious about providing good care, she's very careful, she tries really hard to make sure she understands my concerns & relates well to me, she explains the medical issues & involves me in my care, she's hard on me when both of us know I need her to be, and she's gone above & beyond in my care. When I called her nurse to ask a medical question, her nurse & Dr. Klein caught a potentially serious issue on the phone. I give her the highest ratings possible.

I felt like she didn't even know I had been a patient of hers before. She seemed pretty busy, so I get that to a point, but my history is on my chart and the last time I was there I had some extreme pain going on...she seemed dis-interested in what happened there for any sort of follow up. I realize that I was at this visit for something totally different, but I guess I am looking for a dr that treats the "whole" patient and remembers me at some point so that when I do come in she knows me enough to know something about my history.

I started seeing Dr. Klein last year, and when [...] informed me that they were going to send me to a different doctor, I changed my plan to [...] so I could continue to see Dr. Klein. I believe that explains how much I like her being my primary care provider.

Dr. Klein is a gem!

I was scheduled with Dr. Klein because my regular doctor wasn't available and I was impressed with how much more caring and thorough she was. I also appreciated that she followed up with me later and prescribed a new antibiotic that would be more effective for me after seeing my test results.

She didn't say anything about a follow up, so I emailed her via mychart to get more information about how long to take my medication and when to see her next.

Dr. Klein began the appointment discussing an issue for which I did not see her on this day, and in fact made decisions on in correct information, and did not see to understand issue she wished to discuss. Furthermore, Dr. Klein made me feel like an idiot for seeing her about the issue I did make the appointment for. Telling me "I cannot make a diagnoses" and "What would you like to happen?" I don't know, you're the doctor, that's why I came to you....felt belittled as a patient, not entirely sure I wish to return.

Both [...] (PA) and Dr. Deborah Klein were wonderful to work with! They took the time to explain everything to me and listen to my concerns. They even spent extra time with me, as what I was being seen for ended up needing additional time and tests. I'm sure that they normally provide excellent detailed care to all their patients, but I felt that they went over and above in taking the extra time to make sure all my issues were adequately addressed.

Dr Klein is fantastic. I've loved being her patient for years, and really agree with her approach and appreciate her help. She listens, somehow figures out what I am trying to say, provides logical and clear solutions, and lets me know that if they don't work to come back for more ideas to try.

I wish the physical I had would have been a bit more thorough. Although I had no concerns, I didn't feel that it was a complete physical.

Dr. Klein has been our family physician for many years and we think she is the best. She always shows genuine concern specific to you, the patient. She is professional, concerned, and friendly in equal measure. Other physicans would do well to emulate her approach.
