Verified Patient Reviews
It was quick and easy and I wasn’t afraid to be open with a male doctor
This was my first psychiatry consultation so my knowledge of how things should go are limited. However, I felt very uncomfortable with Dr. Klein and felt that he was very condescending and patronizing. I left his office that day feeling worse about my mental state at that time and forwent a follow-up appointment. I do not recommend, unfortunately.
Very pleased. I felt I was treated with respect, and without condescension. I was a bit taken aback by the initial forms (their online patient forms don’t work, so I filled them out again on paper) and the urine test for illicit drugs (I was there to consult about changing my antidepressants), but I suppose the latter makes sense for an initial visit. Drink plenty of water before your first visit!
He has a very direct approach but it worked for me. He is kind and wants to help you with your problems. What I really liked was how he helped me see my issues from a different angle. The analogies he used really helped me understand what I'm going through. Furthermore, he didn't push medication on me like the last psychiatrist that I saw.
He was great. I had nothing bad to say about him.
Great Doctor. I thought he was super nice and listening. I don't know what the other reviews mean because he was soo kind!
He was very rude and instead of getting to know me I felt like he would belittle and attack me. I was having a great day until I went and saw him. He didn’t create a comfortable environment for me to feel safe in. I would not recommend this doctor for anyone who struggles with anxiety and depression.
This was my first visit with Dr. Klein so I can’t say too much about him, but from the time I spent with him I’ll definitely be going back. If you aren’t ready to acknowledge your mental illness then he’s not the doctor for you. He’s very blunt and to the point. He asks for details for a better understanding and tells you how it is whether you’re ready to hear it or not. He seems very educated and up to date in his field and on the medications he prescribes. He gets 5 stars from me.
Straightforward no nonesense. If you're looking for fluff, probably not your guy. I had a great visit and my needs we're met.
Dr. Klein has a calm and direct demeanor. He is kind and makes skillful analogies.
Was spoken to in a degrading manner and was made to feel like an absolute idiot after almost every sentence I said. Have never felt more insecure about myself after leaving the office of a mental health professional, which is absolutely wrong and should not happen here of all places. Office staff was nice and that was about it. Took me about 3 minutes to realize I'd be making an appointment with a different doctor. Just overall uncomfortable.
I was very pleased with my visit, and already have another appt on the books.
Dr Klein was very nice and resourceful
I was very pleased with my first visit with Dr. Klein. He was very polite as well as knowledgeable, and gave me a lot of insight. He asked relevant questions and didn't beat around the bush. He was efficient and respectful. Thank you.
we didn't seem to click. he seemed very negative and judgmental; i just didn't like his bedside manner
Dr Klien is very professional and knowledgeable. He makes you feel at ease in his office. Great bedside manner
Dr. Klein was very professional and knowledgeable. He explained in detail the documentation from previous doctors and his interpretation which allowed me a deeper understanding of my medical history.
Good, direct, down-to-earth treatment. Seemed very knowledgeable about different treatments.
He should not be in his chosen profession. He is abrasive, rude and lacks empathy.
For my first visit it was a good experience. Dr. Klein ask questions, but did not judge.
Exactly what I needed. He got me right away. I need someone to be real and tell me like it is. Very thorough, kept me on track and provided antidotes that were extremely relevant. Kinda read me very quick, gave me a couple of insights about what I needed for therapy, that I knew, but never voiced before. I had read reviews before hand, both positive and not so much.... but to tell you the truth... the not so positives was the reason I was drawn to visiting Dr. Klein. In therapy, you don't need someone to agree with you and authenticate what you expect others to see.... you want someone to be direct, blunt, and honest. I will be going back.
Prior to my office visit I did read the Zocdoc comments regarding Dr. Klein behavior and I must say this is very accurate. He is very rude, unprofessional and makes ridiculous comments. I asked him to not call police officers pigs for this was very defensive. I came to this doctor seeking help instead I was treated very childish. I will not be returning nor recommend anyone to him or the practice.
Overall, it was a good first appointment.
Condescending and and not very empathetic. Dr. Klein is very young and definitely inexperienced. On my second visit he basically rushed me out of his office and was unwilling to listen to my concerns thoroughly. This particular office seems to be more concerned with making sure they get you on prescriptions than they are with actually listening to you and getting to know more about your issues to make a more thorough diagnosis, exedra. I also saw Dr. McNolte after switching from Dr Klein and it was basically the same thing. She prescribed me Wellbutrin after speaking to me for only a few minutes. This is definitely not the place to go if you are looking for a therapeutic or humanistic approach to addressing your issues.
My visit with Dr. Klein went well. He was very professional and listened very well and addressed all my concerns regarding treatment very thoroughly.
Dr. Klein may seem a little blunt at first, but if you think about it, that might be exactly what you need. He doesn't beat around the bush and I am thankful for that. I look forward to my next visit.
This was my first appointment, so take this review with a grain of salt, but both Dr. Klein and his front office staff were very helpful and knowledgeable.
Dr. Klein was extremely professional. I found him to be very intuned to what was going on with me . He was very helpful and I felt a lot better when I left that day then when I came in.
While I didn't mind my visits with him, his office was unwilling to work with my time constraints and became unwilling to schedule me after I could not attend two appointments due to how far his office was from my house and the time it took to travel, mostly because he was never available when convenient to me. Not really his problem but two missed appointments with no followup care/bridges written on medication is just unacceptable.
Dr. Klein spent a decent amount of time with me and asked lots of questions but oftentimes in very condescending ways. I'm struggling to come up with an adequate summary without going into too many details, but he was surprisingly insensitive. I wouldn't recommend him to anyone who is prone to feeling guilt or shame.
Best psychiatrist I've ever had. Makes me think outside of my illness.
Dr Klein was very approachable and had an excellent demeanor while explaining my situation. It was my first time seeing a psychiatrist, so I can't compare him to another, but he did an overall great job during my appointment.
Right off the bat made me feel stupid and attacked everything I said and did. Not at all how a FIRST or ANY psychiatry appointment should go, you should feel comfortable and feel like you can trust them and I felt neither.
Dr. Klein was extremely rude, pompous, and outright cold. He lacked an incredible amount of empathy which is paramount for any individual in a "helping profession." I was shocked at how he treated me. He was very pretentious in his conversation with me; making me more anxious and uncomfortable. I have never had an interaction with a professional in psychiatry holding so much discord for their patients. If you would like an individual with some compassion, please save your money.
Unexpectedly thorough and attentive. I'm used to psychiatrists just mumbling, "Uh huh," and scribbling notes, but Dr. Klein is not that type. He asked questions to clarify what I said and made sure he understood the whole picture before prescribing anything. He is a little formal but not robotic or distant like most doctors in my experience. Seems like a nice person and easy to work with. I'll be back for sure.
Dr. David Klein is a very knowledgeable person who listens acutely to his patients. I get the sense that I'm being heard and that he has my best interest in mind, which is truly the most I can ask for.
Very personable and interested in what I had to say. He asked a lot of questions to get a grasp of why I was there and what suits my safety with prescriptions. A wide range of insurance is supported as well.
Dr. Klein has been a HUGE help in overcoming my issues. The first appointment was intimidating for me, he was loaded with questions, very straight and to the point, and did not hesitate to let me know what exactly my flaws were and how to fix them. Some people may feel this is too aggressive, but I think it is necessary as a primary evaluation. All of the appointments since have been very easy and brief, he gets more friendly and personable! Don't be turned off by his "all professional" uptight demeanor upon a first appointment, it is necessary for the evaluation. Although he is a psychiatrist and not a psychologist, he still recommends therapeutic practices to do at home that have been extremely helpful! Great staff, great psychiatrist, great facility for the dunwoody location (I really dig the east-Asian vibe in the office). Highly recommend!
It's always nice to visit Dr. Klein. He is very kind and informative about your treatment and really believes in incorporating mental health with your physical health as well.
Nice appt, I didnt feel judged or rushed. He took his time and I felt very comfortable with him.
I did not enjoy my time with Dr. Klein. I felt worse about myself after going to see him. He did not seem genuinely interested or concerned with my problems and in general seemed to brush off my concerns.
He was right on time, extremely knowledgeable and professional demeanor. Beautiful office , calm environment very helpful office personnel.
Dr. Klein listened to all of my concerns in an unrushed manner while allowing ample time for the appointment to continue so that I could give him as much information as possible. Provided objective, thorough medical and personal advice, and didn't hesitate to jump in to guide our discussion to be most effective. At the end of the appointment, he was very helpful in the front office in providing me with the necessary paperwork while the other attendants were busy. I'm very satisfied with my initial appointment with Dr. Klein!
Arrogant, not empathetic, very young and obviously inexperienced
The front desk staff was courteous. Dr. Klein has a non-judgemental and professional demeanor. I greatly appreciated being treated with dignity.
Dr Klein is very competent and knowledgeable and I highly recommend him. This was my first visit and I cannot say more unless his treatment works out good for me.
Dr Klein was very polite and efficient with our time. I will continue seeing him as needed.
I called the day before to confirm that the ZocDoc appointment had been confirmed and checked my co-pay. I had to wait for about 7 minutes for the receptionist to be able to take my credit card to process the payment. It was a lot better than my first experience but mostly because I had been a more pro-active consumer and the office had been responsive.
Dr. Klein was great. For the few short months that I spent seeing him I was always very happy with my experience. I would definitely recommend him.
Very professional, very helpful.
Wanted to prescribe medication after meeting with me for about 40 minutes when my goal was really about stress management. Would not recommend.
Great Doctor!!! Great Staff!!! Very Friendly!! He seemed very interested in me, and my story. No rush, and very nice office. A+
Dr. Klein has a great disposition. He is very kind, professional, listened well and never interrupted me. The office staff was very efficient and courteous. I am looking forward to working with him.
He is very insightful and personal. Really knows what he is doing too.
Very cold. Needs to work on bedside manner
Dr. Klein was very professional and took me in very quick. He listened to my issues and I was in and out very quickly.
Very thorough, open personality. Challenged me to think differently about myself and my relationships.
Great. He knew his stuff and was very professional!
I was reading at reviews and human beings dont understand how hard is to be a psychiatrist they have to be neutral, and try to resolve the problem medically speaking and many people here what they need is a kiss and a hug, i think he was a great doctor and i trust him God knows how hard to be a doctor is.
Best ever . I felt I was actually listened to for the first time .
He was very pompous and a "know-it-all". After only one visit he wanted to start me on meds instead of getting to know me. He listened but it seemed like only what he wanted to hear. He picks apart your sentences and thoughts and offered little to no help at all. He made me feel worse and slightly more crazy than before I came to see him. I would not recommend him to anyone and I will certainly NOT be going back.
As a psychiatrist I was expecting Dr.Klein to be a little more personable. He did seem very competent and knowledgeable! His staff was just flat out unfriendly. I don't even think they said hello when I signed in.
Fantastic! I would recommend him to anyone. Professional, very punctual, very nice, responsive....
He was amazing! Very open minded. I would recommend him to anybody but particularly if you are in the glbT community.
Dr. Klein is very personable, and genuinely cares about your personal well-being. The office staff provided clear instructions about completing the intake forms, and was extremely friendly. The best part about this visit is that I was seen by the doctor before I even had a chance to finish the paperwork, which never happens. I am happy with my choice, and will strongly recommend Dr. Klein's office.
This man has two extremes...the positive is very good- likewise the negative is absolutely unacceptable. It reflects in his reviews. Condescending, unprofessional, rude...he is a lawsuit/tragedy waiting to happen. He does not follow protocol and puts his patients in danger. I wish I had read the reviews first!
I will NEVER be back to see Dr. Klein! Condescending, abrupt, arrogant! Thank you but NO THANK YOU!
The physician was fine but the facility, GA Behavioral Health Professionals, is downright terrible. The waiting room looks like it halfway through a renovation. The staff at the reception sit behind a sliding glass window, and the documentation process is terrible. I called ahead of time to provide my insurance information and to see if they had any forms for me to sign; they did not send any. Then the front-office staff tried to make me sign a forms that had pricing different from what my insurer has negotiated with them.
Dr. Klein was very kind and attentive. He was very thorough in addressing my issues and background. I like his approach in prescribing medications.
Dr. Klein did a great job. Highly recommend.
He was very professional and curtious. Really listened to me and challenged me to think a little bit deeper.
I liked Dr. Klein a lot. He figured out my diagnosis after meeting me for 25 minutes and he was dead on!! I'm happy to know what my problem is now so I can start working on fixing it
He was very professional and understanding. I showed up 30 minutes early and he took me in right away. Great doctor. Highly recommend.
Very helpful and committed to your recovery.
Should be an excellent relationship
He was rude. Not very helpful and cost way too much for nothing. Spoke down on me like I was a low life. Would not send my worst enemy to him!
The first meeting was definitely a little hard to open up to him. I felt very pressured and a bit shaken because I don't like talking about past problems. He told me that is the only way he could help me. I really wasn't sure if I was going to go back to him, but I am glad I did. The second meeting I felt like he really did care about helping me get better. Good doctor and he really does care about his patients.
DO NOT MEET THIS MAN! I went to him for help and he was the rudest, most insensitive person I could have imagined. He insulted me, my family, and my primary care doctor. This psychiatrist made me an emotional wreck from how poorly he treated me. I have never felt so broken in my life, and it was due to the hour I spent in the same room with this man. I should have walked out after the first 30 seconds. He has done immensely more harm than good, and I sincerely believe he should have his license taken away. Do not support his practice. This is your fair warning.
Listened well. Very informative and understanding.
Stay away, DR klein believes he can suddenly change the direction, of street,that has been going one way for 30 yrs, he was well aware of physical and mental repercussions changing medications he even asked me what i would do if he did not give me the medications ,that have life threatening withdrawal. I have never written a poor review I feel bad ,in this case i don't, it is a public service.please for the well being of other potential patients cancel your appointments. and to zoc doc check his degrees and references .I have no problem putting my name on this . more than happy to speak to anyone who has questions
Dr. Klein is very insightful, listens when appropriate, and interjects when necessary.
Dr. Klein was very professional and took the time to listen to my history and consider my input when it came to determining how to treat me. I recently relocated and was nervous about trying to explain my past medical history to a new Dr. I am a healthcare professional and I was very appreciative that he recognized that and allowed me to help with my treatment choices. He took the time to listen and kept our discussion on track so that my visit was very productive. I left feeling hopeful and will continue to see him. He was very caring and listened well, which is what I was looking for.
If you are looking for a good, supportive psychiatrist, look elsewhere. Dr. Klein is cold, rude, and down right insulting. He made fun of the fact that I have bad anxiety, which has left me feeling awful about myself. Additionally he attempted to change the medicines I've been on for years while he was claiming that my other doctors had to be completely wrong and only he knew what was best.
Dr. Klein was highly professional and helped answer many questions I had. Great listener and I am confident in his skills. The office staff was also super friendly and made my visit enjoyable. Dr. Klein came across respectful and genuinely interested in my well being. Beautiful office environment too. Last, I really liked how tech savvy this practice is, from booking appointments with ease online to text message reminder appointment confirmations.
He is very personable and understanding which is what I expect from psychologists, NOT psychiatrists. He explains everything in terms you can understand and then gives you options so you can make the choice that is best for you. Would recommend to a friend.
If you would like a friendly, caring psychiatrist, look elsewhere. Dr. Klein was insulting and rude to me and never once smiled. He acted as if he was above me and that is absolutely not how someone in his line of work should be. I'm cancelling my follow-up appointment because being in the same room with him makes me even more anxious.
He weighed the pros and cons for me on several different paths that could be taken for treatment. He was also very attentive and seemed genuinely interested in my well being.
One of the few psychiatrist who listened and took his time, gave me a good perspective
As a first time patient seeing Dr. Klein I found my experience with him as one of the worst I've ever had. The whole appointment felt rushed and I was made to feel more like a clinical study than a person. He took it upon himself to almost completely change my prescription that I have been on for several years and made me feel like a series of questions rather than a person seeking professional assistance. For someone who specializes in behavioral medicine, I would not recommend him to anyone and will be seeking a different doctor for the future.
He really took his tine to explain things to me. He was very gentle and listened to my many problems. He involved me in the care and made sure I was okay with the meds. He explained the side effects. Overall, he is an awesome doctor.
Dr. Klein was thorough, personable, intuitive and competent. Definitely recommend!!!
Dr. Klein was very professional and easy to talk to. He takes the time to explain anything you need and never rushed. I will visit him again.
Very nice and personable!
I believe Dr Klein is a compassionate, caring , and knowledgeable doctor.
