Dr Kling is a kind, patient, and supportive doctor. Diligent when necessary but not inclined to over-prescribe or recommend unnecessary treatment, Dr Kling offers the best in dermatological care. The Brooklyn office is spacious and comfortable, and appointments run on-time (a rare thing these days).

Great doctor -- very knowledgeable and professional, along with a great staff. Very detail-oriented in terms of dealing with insurance coverage as well.
in New York, NY |
Dr. Kling and his staff were very courteous professional throughout my many visits to his office. I was a bit nervous as my condition was a personal one, but I only felt comfortable and reassured while in his care. However, as with any doctor, there was occasionally a bit of a wait in the waiting room before seeing him, regardless of arriving on time for the appointment.

Dr. Kling is truly a talent. Upon voicing my concerns and reasons for visiting his practice; he made me feel very comfortable. Not only did he listen but he educated me in everything he was doing for my treatment. He made sure I was at ease and walked me through the entire procedure as he went along. It also appears to me as he isn't one to rush you out the door, as I noticed he spent an appropriate amount of time with me during my appointment. I would gladly recommend him to anyone in the marke

Dr. Kling is both personable and professional. He put me at ease by first explaining the known data about my condition and then relating it to me in a manner that was understandable. He spent TIME with me to thoroughly examine me and then come up with a treatment plan. I highly recommend Dr. Kling. Making an appointment was easy and his staff was professional and courteous.

I went to Dr Kling with both my parents. He took care of both efficiently and with just the right amount of banter. Mom had two large moles that her general physician wanted multiple other doctors to look at. Dr Kling removed them in less than 8 minutes. Finished! Already almost healed after a week. He has always shown remarkable skill in analyzing treatment over the years. I'm Generally a tough reviewer, but Dr. Kling passes consistently with flying colors. Howard S.

in Brooklyn, NY |
I usually don't like to recommend doctors as each of us has their own requirements. The following is my experience based on multiple visits over many years. Dr. Kling comes across as a friendly, caring , patient, and knowledgeable doctor. He listens to you and speaks with you, not at you, in layperson language (not MD talk). Dr. Kling satisfies my dermatological needs and requirements.
