I didn't leave with any ease to my worries. I felt rushed into a needless surgery with no real answers. Dr. Kleinman doesn't explain things at all. He doesn't give any warning before doing procedures and is not gentle at all. I don't need a doctor to be overly friendly but he really isn't friendly at all. I went an received a second opinion and discovered I was indeed being rushed into a needless surgery that would not have corrected my issue at all. For these reasons I would not recommend Dr. Kleinman

You can not find a better ENT around!! I have been going to Dr Kleiman for 10+ yrs. I have family/friends who also go to him. I have had another doctor of mine ask me, who is my ENT? This doctor was looking for a good ENT for one of his patients. Dr Kleiman is a professional, a down to 'earth' doctor. He will explain things to you until u understand. He doesn't use all those medical terms, (we non-medical folks don't know.) Dr Kleiman is not one who is ready to use the 'knife.' He will try other methods to fix ur problems. Nine out of ten times, he can fix it without using the 'knife.' There is no other ENT I would go too!! I have been too a few and yep the last one was Dr Kleiman. Wish I had found him first!!! Dr Kleiman has two PAs who is also very professional and friendly. Both of them know 'their stuff too!' Dr Kleiman's office staff are great too!! From the moment u ck in, to the MA doing their thing until u see Dr Kleiman. Plus Dr Kleiman does not rush u through ur appt!!

I have been going to Dr. Kleiman for many years and I have to say he is the best at what he does! I go to him for ear issues, cosmetic procedures, tattoo removal and facials. Dr. Kleiman is amazing with fillers, its like an art to him! Valerie is in the process of removing a much unwanted tattoo and did my last treatment for wrinkles, again amazing! I recently went to Maggie for a facial, the best facial I have ever received! The office staff and nurses always go above and beyond and are very friendly!

Although this is a late review as my surgery was first session 9/8/2008 and then final surgery 11/4/2008 it is very important to tell all! On 9/8/2008 approximately 1/3 of my nose had to be removed by a cancer doctor due to an aggressive Squamous Cell tumor. I was sent from that 9 hour procedure to the hospital where Dr. Kleiman was waiting for me. to begin at 4:00 pm. His skill and craftsmanship was impeccable and after 2 procedures my nose is better than new! Thanks very much Lee!!

The result of the surgery to repair my broken nose and restructure sinus cavities to address chronic sinusitis was a cosmetic and physiologic disaster. My nose now swerves to one side and chronic sinusitis is exacerbated. Dr. Kleiman himself concluded, “I didn’t do a very good job.” My family .physician verified that the surgery worsened the sinus structure to a great degree. Dr. Kleiman offered to repeat the surgery, but I won’t take a chance on another bad outcome.

Before surgery in Jan, I asked Dr's surgical coordinator which ins to choose during open enrollment for surgery/followup, but wasn't told the use of an endoscope at followups was considered "surgery" ($150 copay, not $40). My ins. co. told me Dr. could code differently; although he agreed from then on (& wrote off portion of $900 owed), on last visit for simple sinus culture swab, he insisted on using scope & used a different code so his billing dept. could NOT write off as we had agreed upon.

Dr. Kleiman is a wonderful doctor! I would highly recommend him to my family or anyone looking for an ENT. He is very kind, gentle and most of all patient for my 20,000 questions! He had to take me into emergency surgery once and that's how we met. After that experience, I will never go to another ENT again...he's worth the hour and a half drive! Thank you Dr. Kleiman, you and your staff are awesome!
