My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

Based on my training and experience in general internal medicine and the sub-specialty of kidney diseases, teaching medicine from the medical student to post-graduate level, researching the most up to date practices and technologies in my own practice, and developing interactive educational and communication programs, I am able to provide a high level of care to patients who have chosen to have me as their physician. I listen to my patients and take a detailed and thorough history, complete a physical examination, and utilize the appropriate laboratory and diagnostic testing. I emphasize prevention and protection from illness and disability, and, since modifying my practice to a smaller one, I am now able to provide the earliest possible appointments, typically within the same or next day. I am also available by phone or e-mail. This is mutually beneficial: to my patients to have access to me, and for me to be able to help earlier and prevent any worsening of a medical condition, injury or illness. It also helps to synchronize my patients with me in our very busy world.

I am a new patient of Dr. Kleinman. In just a few months I have come to realize that I have never actually had health care before Dr. Kleinman. He keeps peeling back layers and doesn't accept the easy answer. He is more concerned about his patients than any doctor I have ever dealt with.

I can't speak highly enough about Dr. Ken Kleinman. He's professional and thorough, of course, but that's only the foundation.
In my experience, Dr. Kleinman's greatest gift is the way he combines his encyclopedic and always expanding medical knowledge with plain old detective work. His intellect and curiosity about my health issues is impressive and I enjoy his wry… See more
