Dr. Klein's Care Philosophy

My joy in practicing ophthalmology comes from the fact that I know I am providing something of value: sight. Our independence, our pleasure, our competence and our ability to communicate are all enhanced by our ability to see clearly. I look forward to each work day and to seeing each patient. My goal is to protect your vision as though it were my own and to do so in a way that is comfortable, informative and respectful.

Patient Comments (1)
New Fairfield, CT |
In fairness, I spent most of my time seen by Dr. Klein's assistant, Mary Jo. She seemed friendly at 1st, but then seemed VERY rude/resistant to answering questions. The appt was for sudden blurry vision/eye pain. Never had eye issues, so this was frightening. I would've appreciated some answers! At the end, no diagnosis, and wouldn't give me my prescription for glasses THEY recommended without another appt. for a test they should've done BEFORE dialating me. An appt 2 mos later! Not going back..
