He was extremely rude. [...] Didn't listen to anything I had to say. Got offended when I asked questions. And hasn't listened to a word I've said for the past 4 years. [...]

Dr Anatole Kleiner is an asset to your health care system. He is knowledgeable, personable, an expert in his specialty, a good listener & much more. I was referred to Dr Kleiner by my internist for a complicated medical condition and was seen within 24-48 hours of that referral. I'm very pleased with his exceptional care & his pleasant office staff.
