What People Say About Dr. Roger Klein, MD

He's a get-down-to-business doctor, but only uses surgery as a last resort. He's probably the best knee and shoulder surgeon in Sonoma County. I even actually saw him smile once! Dr. Klein's office has the best staff I have ever encountered.

After slipping in a muddy dirt path and shattering my leg bone (fibula) near the ankle, the image of the bone looked like disaster. Dr. Klein planted a sturdy metal plate with 6 screws to correct the damage. After a couple of months with crutches, my leg was healed and me and my new hardware were working just fine. I'm forever grateful.

I have never been so impressed with a doctor as I have been with Dr. Roger Klein. He and his staff gave me the utmost confidence in caring for my Disabled Foster Daughter. She loved every moment when it was time for her her office visits after her surgery. The kindness he showed to both of us was extraordinary. Thank You so much Dr. Klein, Nurse Jennifer and the rest of your amazing Staff.

Dr. Klein was my on-call doctor on the first day in the emergency room (I had three fractures in the same shoulder). He took care of me and alerted me to the fact that he would also be my surgeo;n the next day. He fully communicated the condition I was in and openly communicated that it would be a challenging surgery. (From what I have heard, he studied how to piece me together again that very night.) To summarize happily, my shoulder now if almost fully functional and I am feeling free.

I had hip surgery performed by Dr. Klein about 10 years ago. None of the possible things that could go wrong happened to me. I have no nerve damage and no pain after recovery. I completely trust this doctor to do any future surgery I might need such as the standard replacement of a small part that is needed at 20 years post hip surgery. I completely and unreservedly recommend Dr. Klein for hip surgery.

Dr. Klein and his staff were very responsive to my needs. Dr. Klein replaced the emergency room splint on my arm which kept me comfortable until I could be scheduled for surgery to put in a plate and screws, which was 10 days later because swelling was too severe to operate. The surgical procedure went smoothly, healing was timely and I began OT a few weeks after surgery. 11 weeks after surgery, the scar is barely visible (unlike other scars I have seen!) and I have full use of my hand and arm!

Dr. Klein did an Amazing job with both of my surgeries. I was in Two Dirt bike accidents in the same year. I had screws put into my tibia In March of 2016, and November 2016 A metal plate put in my clavicle. He makes sure you as the patient understand everything he is going to do in surgery,and always makes sure that his work is 110%. I highly recommend any one in need of Orthopedic surgery to visit Dr, Klein.

I'd recommend Dr. Klein to anyone in a heartbeat! He was recommended when I was in the ER for a badly fractured wrist that needed surgery. I saw him on Friday and so I wouldn't have to wait through the weekend in pain with my arm wrapped and in a sling, he offered to operate first thing Saturday morning, even though he was preparing to leave with his family for an overnight weekend away. And his office staff are inviting and friendly! They make what could be a bad experience easily tolerable.

I had an excellent experience with Dr. Klein. I am 80 years old and had a fractured left arm and shoulder. Dr. Klein spent 4 hours fixing me up with surgery. Nothing could have been better, including his excellent staff.

Dr Klein was instrumental in saving my severely broken leg 6 years ago. I went back to him for a knee replacement surgery last year. He is very professional, and his staff are the friendliest and most helpful.

Dr. Klein is very competent and takes pride in his work. He definitely wants his patients to have good results. I felt that during every appointment I had his full attention. Sometimes he forgot to use layman's terms when explaining his procedures, but if I asked him to clarify in simpler words, he would. Once I was concerned about my incision and he even let me stop by right away without an appointment. His office is accommodating if you're worried about your injury and they REALLY care!
