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!

4 months ago, my left femur was 2 pieces, now I can walk without even a cane, and I am back to work. Dr. Klein did a superb job in my surgery. I highly recommend him without reservations. His office staff is outstanding!

Wonderful office staff. My husband and I have needed Dr Klein for orthopedic surgery several times. We are always very pleased with the results. He really cares about his patients.

Dr. Roger Klein is without par as a Dr., a Surgeon, and as a man who is compassionate in regards to the expertise of care that he provided for me, as his patient. I had a badly broken elbow due to a sudden fall in which he did an extensive 3 hour surgery to repair. I always was informed of procedure knowing what was being done and why. This made me feel I wasn't just a number .At Sutter, it was rewarding to hear the staff's view of Dr. Klein. we all agreed. HE'S THE BEST.
in Petaluma, CA |
Dr. Klein really seems to care about you as a patient. He listens to your concerns and explains everything so you know what to expect. I had carpal tunnel in both my hands and now that I've had surgery they are so much better, no more pain! I would definitely recommend him to anyone who needs a great Orthopedic Surgeon.
Kelseyville, CA |
Spectacular office staff: efficient and friendly. Dr. Klein is a great surgeon. I had some very complicated issues and Dr. Klein did what was necessary to have them heal well. He was really there for me when I had a second emergency in the same year.
