This was my first telehealth visit. It went much better than I expected and I would have no problem scheduling another one.

DR. Kleinhenz is a wonderful doctor wish there were more like her. I hope she doesn't plan to retire for a very long time.

I believe Dr. Kleinhenz is the primary reason I am still alive today. Since 2005 her treatment of a difficult chronic lung disease has been brilliant.

This provider has taken care of me for the last 3 years and thanks to her the initial respiratory problem I had has been practically eliminated without any surgery as recommended by formernon UCSF doctors. I think she did a great job over these last years.

I couldn't ask for a more caring and knowledgeable pulmonologist. she's on top of my care plan and always responds promptly to my needs.

Dr. Kleinhenz was very helpful and I intend to continue with her. I think it better that my pulmonary issues be dealt with in this Dept vs internal medicine. Dr. Kleinhenz has a lot of knowledge and understanding of my condition and very helpful in overall treatment planning. I believe I have a better chance for improving with her treatment and care.

Left appointment feeling that I had just wasted her time and that she was in a hurry and could care less.

Extraordinary doctor. Outstanding. Continues to treat my disease and keeping alive. She shared very helpful information regarding transplants and other health issues I was facing. People would be lucky to have her as their doctor.

Dr. Kleinhenz is always very professional yet friendly in her manner. She answers all of my questions and gives a great explanation when explaining something new to me. Great doctor!!!

Dr. Kleinhenz is very caring and went the extra mile to find out why I'm so sick with asthma. Highly recommended.

This was one of the best clinical experiences I've had with an MD in years.

see comments in prior dialogue box on prior page. Is she capable and competent I am sure she is. Is she professional? Absolutely. Do I feel better more informed after my visit? Not really. she listened yes but then seemed to disregard and lecture as opposed to having a conversation. Made it a point to get all notes typed and printed prior to walking out of the examination room.

I understand all medical communication because I am a nurse.
