Dr. Klyman was very kind and attentive. She listened to me and asked questions while an assistant took notes so thatshe could give me her full attention. I am working through my issues with her and she is being very helpful.

One of the worst, most stressful experiences I have ever had to deal with, on top of an already difficult timein my life. The Genen group is the worst and Dr. Klyman has zero follow up with communication. I lost 3 weeks of disability due to her not filling out forms left for her 4 weeks prior. Her assistant is equally abrupt. She prescribed medication so casually with zero detailed information as to why it would specifically be good for me, just that it was FDA approved. Her lack of professionalism scared me out of taking anything she would suggest. Will never return.

I was very pleased with my visit with Dr. Klyman. She seemed to be genuinely interested in my wellbeing, my history, and giving me the tools that I needed to be successful in my health journey.

She is very absentminded and forgetful. First she sent my prescription to the wrong pharmacy and then I had to wait OVER A MONTH to schedule an appointment with her to have it sent to the correct pharmacy. The Genen Group would not correct this mistake over the phone. On another occasion, she completely forgot she had prescribed me a certain medication.

She is a very nice woman. Very skilled. But I thought her ideas a bit archaic an behind the times for me. I am progressive, feminist and independent. Her basic beliefs were out of sync with my own.
