I am a practicing dentist in Virginia Beach. I injured my thumb which would greatly affect my work. I explained my situation and was promptly seen. I was very pleased with my treatment and options given. Also, my previous experience with Dr. Kline , 19 years ago was more than fulfilling. My son had severe nerve damage to both arms. Thanks to Dr. Kline's expertise my son has full use of his arms. His attitude may seem a little aloof but he is a very caring individual.

I will post my full review soon. I am waiting for his response to a billing issue that I have brought to his attention.

If you like being treated like one of the heard, being touched by staff who do not sanitize their hands in front of you, have your surgeon talk to you from the hall and paying out of ying yang for splints, etc. that you can be obtained for pennies on the dollar, then this is the place for you! I will not go back.

Went to see Dr. Kline because my GP doctor sent me to him for pain I was having around my shoulder. Thought he could give me a shot. Had a 7:30 appointment for paperwork with a 8:00 doctor time. When I arrived on time doing my paperwork was 1 of just a few. Ended up waiting till 9:00 while many, many others came in to see Dr. Kline, arriving long after me. In exam room ridiculed my business, and told me to do physical therapy. No pain relief, just redicule. I am a therapist. Not the answer.

45 mins in exam room while patients around us ask when Dr. will arrive. Kline shows up and asks about wrist and elbow - problem is wrist and shoulder. No post-therapy recommendations until we start asking questions about warm up, ice down, etc. No eye contact, very unsatisfying patient manner, very unsatisfying experience - both times we have seen him.

Rushes through appointments and doesn't listen to anything you have to say. I've been dealing with pain in my wrist for over 2 years due to his lack of care for his patients. I caught him in a lie, didn't go back. He told me to read a book to learn to deal with pain, told me I need to seek mental therapy and less than a year later wanted to do surgery because he saw the injury AFTER I demanded MRI. Now I am having trouble finding a doctor to fix what he made worse by prolonging the correct care.
in Virginia Beach, VA |
RUSHED MEDICAL ATTENTION, MOST WORK WAS DONE BY NURSE, NO FEEDBACK PROVIDED BY DOCTOR. MY WRIST FRACTURE SHOULD HAVE BEEN EASY TO TREAT BUT AFTER A YEAR I HAVE PAIN IN WRITST, ELBOW, AND SHOULDER. IF DR KLINE CARED ABOUT MY CONDITION, HE DIDN'T SHOW IT.
