Patient Comments (27)
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.

New to the area, and was referred by a friend. The best experience ever. Dr Kleiman was very professional and helpful. The staff was amazing!!! Couldn't ask for a better expierence. Thank you!

Very warm yet professional. Great pricing for the latest in laser technology.
in Cambridge, MD |
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!

I can not speak for his expertise and the care he takes when performing cosmetic procedures. However I would strongly discourage anyone going there for any ENT issues, especially have him perform surgery. He is only interested in money. That is it! My husband ended up in ER after invasive sinus surgery, doctor Kleiman as well as anesthesiologist had left the outpatient facility premises and staff was unable to care for my husbands needs. Ambulance had to take him to ER - doctor never followed up

Dr Kleiman has treated all three of my children, myself, my wife and my father in-law over the years. The greatest compliment you can give to a surgeon is to entrust your children's health to him/her. My wife and I have done so over and over again. Coming from one surgeon to another. Always grateful for the care you provide my family. Thank you.

No pressure and very helpful as well as totally informed regarding procedures. This was a great first visit.
in Severna Park, MD |
Doctors and staff are extremely friendly and professional. Made me feel comfortable about what I was uncomfortable with.
in Baltimore, MD |
Although I respect his knowledge and position as an ENT, I found Dr. Kleiman to be a abrupt, lacking in basics of communication in both his ability to listen and explain. Dr. Kleinan was quick to offer surgery as an option as opposed to other alternatives for treatment which caused me to question whether his judgement was in the best interest of the patient or his practice. Furthermore, he failed to show scans with patient and to explain why he believed surgery was necessary.
Unfortunately, I seemed to have missed your review, but I am very sorry to hear about your unhappy experience during your appointment. I truly apologize if my manner seemed rushed, but please know that my number one priority is the health and well being of each patient and to provide exceptional care in a private, compassionate and comfortable setting. Your feedback is very important to me and I greatly appreciate your taking the time to share your experience with us.
in Severna Park, MD |
Wonderful experience! Dr. Kleiman did a remarkable job reconstructing my nose from a botched procedure 25 years ago. I feel like myself again. I can breathe finally!!! Thank you to all the staff who have made me feel so welcomed into their family!
