Dr. Klein has been my doctor for over 20 years now and we have a rapport established. She always takes the time to relate to me that meets my expectations. As a former, now retired, RN [...] I have high expectations, including being a part of the team for my care rather than just on the receiving end of directives. She is clear, direct, and patient.

Have recommended Dr. Klein to several friends who later became her patients.

My experience with Dr. Klein was extremely negative. Overall, her tone/attitude was extremely condescending - I felt like I was being talked down to. My encounter with Dr. Klein was uncomfortable and I do not recommend this care provider to anyone. She did not seem happy that I asked follow up questions (I am sorry that I am not a medical professional). Her response to my follow up questions were short and did not feel like I got adequate explanations. I am very disappointed with Swedish and my experience with them. I left the clinic feeling unresolved and a bit upset. I was so put down by Dr. Klein, not sure this kind of experience is healthy for patients.

I love Dr Klein. She is amazing. Somehow she always remembers my history. She takes the time to cover everything and answer any questions. I trust her completely and really appreciate that. I even choose my insurance based upon which one covers her. Thank you!

She is always busy. Besides annual check up, it's hard to set up an appointment with her... I don't want to see some substitute doctor, as I had bad experience...

I have recommended Dr Klein to my friends. she is a good listener and provides information about whatever I'm worried about and gives me the data to make informed decisions about my care. I have been seeing her for a long time and I appreciate the continuity of care. I feel confident about the information she gives me and enjoy seeing her.

I like my doctor but I can't recommend her any longer, because the experience of seeing her - late, rushed, with very poor front desk staff at this location as always - is enough to turn a reasonable person away.

Dr. Klein is always helpful, knowledgeable, and handles things professionally. She's always been great for routine care, but my experience a couple of years ago when I ended up in the hospital showed me how wonderful she truly is. She went above & beyond, and I really respect & appreciate having her as my doctor.

My doctor is the best! I always enjoy my visits with her and come away feeling reassured about any concerns I might have.

Dr. Kline was going prescribed medication but it did not take place, the nurse [...] wanted to me to come back the next day being seen and with that I think it was unnecessary and overkilled.

She spent way more time than she probably had available. Gave me resources and a same plan. Very happy.

Dr. Klein really cares about me as a patient and a person. She is an exceptional doctor and person.

Seems to find new concerns on each visit needing additional referrals to specialists. Sometimes feels like a mission to refer to every specialty in Swedish. I work full time and it's hard to keep up with everything expected, especially since some of the items aren't even an issue.

Dr. Klein is truly the best.

Dr. Klein is excellent. Absolutely the best doctor I have seen in the Seattle area. I am always impressed by her professionalism and personal touch - she gives thorough explanations and treats me like an individual.

Dr Klein is everything I want/look for in a Doctor and since the first visit (5 years ago) I never once considered looking for another phycisian. Both my husband and myself are 100% satisfied with her and trust her completely with our health concerns. I like that she is "to the point" but always professional and caring in the right balance.

Dr. Klein is great and focused on my health. She uses words I understand, is patient and focused on my health needs. I trust her judgement and believe that she cares about me as a human being. She does not lecture but instead guides me to see how I might improve my health.

Dr.Klein was my doctor ever since I was a kid. When my moms insurance changed in high school I stopped going to Dr.Klein but now that I am of age I don't want to go to anyone else. Dr.Klein is a wonderful care provider and even though I had that time period away from her I still feel the same comfort I did when I was a kid.

Dr. Klein is the best primary care provider I've ever had. She takes her time & doesn't make you feel rushed. Her explanations are clear & concise.

Dr. Klein takes better care of me than I do. She is always very kind while still the professional. She also is very motivating and does her homework before seeing her patients. She is one of my favorite people.

I think Dr. Klein is great. The only reason I would change providers is b/c the downtown location isn't convenient.

I just didn't click with this Dr, not sure why. I had Dr. [...] before and we could always chat about medical issues, I don't think I could do that with this doctor, seems to be lacking in something. just my personal perference

Dr. Klein was very rushed the day I saw her in clinic, due to an unforeseen staffing issue. She fast tracked my blood work and the day following my visit phoned me with results. While there was some relief with my diagnosis over the phone, I was left with many questions and a few concerns about the prescription given for my condition.

[...] I absolutely believe she has my best interests in mind, but she is not always as understanding of finances concerning medical care/insurance. She is very confident of her feedback and information....not the warm /fuzzy type. But I've been going to her for 20 years and I trust her.

No matter how long she's in the room, Dr. Klein always makes me feel like she has my full attention and is really listening. She's a good communicator and shows great empathy.
