Dr. Kling and his service/level of care were excellent. The wait time however was extremely off putting. 50 minutes in the waiting room and 15 minutes in the exam room. I was very close to leaving and taking my business elsewhere as a customer. I was however glad that I stayed. The overall office organization was something to be desired. As long as you know this going into your appointment, I think the quality of the care is worth it.

Dr. Kling was great, but it took over an hour to get into a room and another 15 minutes before seeing the doctor. I would recommend they manage the schedule better and then let patients know in advance if they are that far behind schedule.

Pleasantly surprised that he could execute the service on first visit. It was fast & painless. Too bad about the TV audio being on in the waiting room.

I was a little concerned that he didn’t allow me to get a word in and explain the details of my current condition and details of previous treatments I have already tried. He then left the consultation before I could ask any other questions.

I thought he was a good specialist. He seemed very knowledgeable and efficient. I read the other reviews about him, and it seems like you either really like him or you don't. But some of the reviews seemed a little harsh for a Dermatology review. Anyway, I highly recommend this Doctor, as he seems very professional and experienced in his field.

I enjoy my visits with Dr. Kling. Aside from being very open and forthcoming regarding any medical explanations or diagnoses, he is a man of many interests and a breadth of life experience that makes conversations memorable and enjoyable. Unfortunately, the office was a bit backlogged with other appointments today and I ended up waiting nearly an hour to see him. No big deal.

He was very knowledgeable and kind, but at the end of my appointment. He kept trying to get out of the room as quickly as possible, so I felt very rushed and like a burden. However, he did get me a better medication to help with a skin problem I've been dealing with for a while, so I can't really complain.

Dr. Kling is awesome. Consistently patient, takes his time, explains treatment options, etc. Sometimes a bit of a wait and the front desk staff can be curt, but the interaction with Dr. Kling is always great.

Dr Kling was warm and helpful in answering my questions, but the wait for 80 minutes was very frustrating, and I would have appreciated notification from his office staff (particularly since I waited in the exam room itself for 25 min).

Dr. Kling is great, however the reception staff is incredibly rude and dismissive. Although I would recommend Dr. Kling as an individual and doctor, I don't think I will return to his practice due to the dreadful and rude reception staff.

Doctor did not make me feel comfortable. Was somewhat dismissive of my concerns. I also wanted to be seen just by the doctor but his assistant was in the room the entire time - never asked me if that was okay with me. I was an appointment later in the day and he seemed rushed

Receptionists were friendly and timely. Dr. Kling was on time and before asking why I was there, he asked me about myself and my life. Dr. Kling is a patient-centered doctor and not a doctor who is trying to get through as many patients as possible. As a medical student learning about the art of doctoring, Dr. Kling has shown he understands the doctor patient relationship and the way doctors are supposed to act. I will definitely be a return patient.
