New patient - filled out forms through zoc doc. no wait at all. nice staff, but not forced nice. just happy to be there. dr. klein was on point too. knew what it was that was bothering me. explained it indoctor talk and regular talk. told me what to do. wrote a prescription. told me when to come back. first time patient, thorough evaluation, concise analysis. in an out in around a half hour. what more could I ask for? it was great, and I am happy to have found an ophthalmologist that I plan on going back to whenever needed. Oh, and there is plenty of parking in the back. Awesome.

Overall the visit with the doctor was a good experience. The only thing that was a little weird is once I arrived to the office I was asked to fill out paperwork, and before I even got 1 page in, Iwas then rushed into my appointment without completing it, and I made sure to mention this several times to the medical assistant. The exam went well, and I was then left needing to complete the paperwork at the end of the appointment. This of course is not a good or by any means best practice to follow, the result was me being rushed into an appointment without them knowing any of my medical history or allergies...

I never had a Dr. act as rude as this guy. I would not sit in his over crowed waiting room again. Office is run like a mill. Squeezing in as many patients as possible in a day. Hands you eyeexam results, rushes you to the rear of the office to be fitted for glasses. I walked out.

My visit with Dr. Klein was relaxing, courteous and pleasant. Absolutely no waiting time. He was thorough with his examination and answered all my questions to my satisfaction. I would recommend him to anyone with no reservation whatsoever.My post will probably sound very similar to others but just as they helped me make my decision to use Dr. Klein, my opinion is honest and true. I couldn't ask for a more pleasant experience.

Excellent experience. There was no wait time at all, the office staff was friendly and personable, and Dr.Klein's approach was crisp and professional. I'm going back to see him again in a few weeks for a follow-up. Highly recommended!

This Dr. should never have chosen this field. He accepts Medicaid because its easy money. He is rude, after my exam he had the nerve to tell me not to smoke when I see him. Excuse me I am old enoughto be your Dad! Where is your manners? His office is over booked with patients on Medicaid, most of which can't speak English, so his staff interprets for him. If you are going to see patients that can't speak English, learn there language. And don't run a mill. I hope the people at Medicaid see this and take away your right to service those in real need.

He was friendly, spoke and greeted with a smile. Made me feel comfortable even in my most uncomfortable moments. He gave me information and explained himself thoroughly. I didn't have any real issues with my eyesight so I didn't require muchattention but overall I enjoyed him as a doctor and I'd revisit. Although he is a great doctor the office was extremely cluttered and children were all over in such a disorderly conduct. And the bathroom was not clean.

My visit with Dr. Shawn Klein was a wonderful experience. I was there today for my 11 year old son's check up. As soon as I walked into the extremely warm waiting room I was treated by his office staff thatsigned me in and took my information immediately. Having signed up on ZocDoc actually sped up the process because she had all my information already and only needed my copay. Dr. Klein saw us and immediately brought us in to his examination room that was extremely kid friendly and fun. As i began to look around I was amazed to see how many patients have sent Dr. Klein cards of thanks for correcting any eye issues they may have had. i was thrilled to know that he has an amazing repuation as an eye surgeon as well. He was efficient, thorough and had an amazing "bedside" manner. My son loved being there and can't wait for his next eye appoint to receive contact lenses.

While I was very disappointed with all of the office staff from the receptionists to the techs who couldn't figure out where to find on my office paperwork form to know why I came to see Dr. Klein, he was great.Took his time to listen to why I came, and also explanations of what was and wasn't a concern. Answered all my questions and had a great "chair side" manner. Highly recommended!
