Russell, is that extortionary person who happens to be a physician. I'm honored to have him as my physician. Today he is seriously ill and had to take a leave of absence for a year I was told. I want to wish him the utmost in medical attention for an extraordinary speedy recovery.

Dr. Klein is a caring, upbeat physician who really listens to the concerns of his patients. He actually remembers the names of his patients and greets them in a way that they feel special. He is particularly patient with the elderly who tend to be forgetful and repeat themselves. Dr. Klein is easy to understand and makes his expert diagnosis based on many years of experience. My family appreciates his expertise and consider him to be a friend.
