He was rude, judgmental, and made me feel uncomfortable. Not at all the way you should feel when pursuing help for mental health.

I made a huge mistake. It took me months to muster up the courage to get help. I explained that to Dr Klein and also that I was nervous. He accused me of lying about medications that I currently take. I’maware of the database. I’m not a lair I was nervous and forgetful He asked me if I was hoarding, giving them away or selling? I was asked about past trama he asked me if I was ever assaulted. I dug up the painful event and he asked me if I slept with someone and regretted it, or if I was really sexually assaulted. I left feeling 100% times worse then I went in. This man lacks empathy and respect. I felt like I was in a court room vs a Drs Office A nurse noticed how upset I looked. She pulled me aside and had empathy and gave me a hug and some water and recommend that I see someone else when I’m ready whether it’s there or another practice. She did recommend a better match but I physically don’t ever want to return to that place ever. I sat in my car and cried for an hour after that appointment

This was the worst and most horrible doctor's visit I have ever experienced with any doctor. Dr. Klein did appear to listen without taking many notes at all regarding my overall situation that I presented to him.I went desperately needing helpof any kind. After a more than hour long session with this doctor, he stated, this is the absolute truth, "It's not necessary to make a follow up appointment with me, your situation is a little too complicated for me." I was a desperate patient with critical issues and that was his response. I cried going down the elevator, called my sister, a nurse who said, "No doctor should ever speak to someone that way. He could have offered some solutions." I can't write more or they may edit this, but please be aware, his abilities as a Psychiatrist appear to be limited. No "bedside manner" exhibited at all!

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 worseabout 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 forillicit 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 heused really helped me understand what I'm going through. Furthermore, he didn't push medication on me like the last psychiatrist that I saw.

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 notthe 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.

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 absolutelywrong 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.

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 mea 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 pigsfor 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.

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 seemsto 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.

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 houseand 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.

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 conversationwith 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 prescribinganything. 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. 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 flawswere 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!

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!
