Dr Klein is a great doc, he and his staff went out of the way to make room for use to be seen. I have a real problem and need to see someone soon. Dr Klein made that happen, everyone in his staff worked to make it happen. Thanks

[...] after the visit, it didn't make sense that we tried one of several possible approaches, and he ordered some additional testing, then recommended that I see my usual provider in a year. It seemed that we had taken step 1, and needed to have a plan of if or when step 2 would happen before I went back to my usual provider dr.

Once at the office everyone was very friendly. However, when the office called to confirm my appointment I did not appreciate the tone of the person calling indicating that they "expected" me to be there early, I just think that is a poor choice of words and can be very offensive to most people.

My visits to the Heart Institute have always been positive. Receptionists greet you quickey and professionally. Wait times are kept to a minimum. Once in the exam room, the doctor arrives shortly and begins the patient interview. He has my records at his disposal, and always is knowledgeable about my situation and needs. I have always been very impressed with the efficiency and professionalism of staff members.
