Have you seen Dr. Samuel Kline?
Poor attitude, arrogant, and unwilling to listen
Posted on September 8th, 2017
Staff at Atlantic Orthopedic was outstanding, especially the P.A. When Dr. Kline entered the room, he introduced himself, complained that I'd already had an MRI done, and completely ignored everything I'd discussed with the P.A. He spoke for two minutes and left the room.
I would not recommend Dr. Kline to my worst enemy!

Dr. Kline crushed my right hand with a cast that was placed too tightly and after finding another hand specialist at VCU in Richmond I was told that I never should have had the cast for the original injury to begin with! I may have permanent damage to my right hand do to him and Atlantic Orthopedic.

I have had problems. I was scheduled in one office in Virginia Beach, sent to the other office - MD was unable/unwilling to wait for me to drive over (1.5 hour drive to see him). Saw a PA - had an inaccurate diagnosis. Tried to schedule with MD again, had a death of an old friend 35 years knowing the family, went to re-schedule and was charged for not being able to meet appointment with MD. He was on vacation one time tried to see him. Anyway have called hourly to confirm the appointment, no return call as answering machine says they will. No call yesterday to confirm I even have the appointment. Bad business.

First impressions are lasting impressions. I have total confidence in Dr. Kline as he takes care of my carpal tunnel problem. My first impression: professional, good listener, explained what my wrist/hand problem was and offered realistic treatment options and treated me with the utmost respect. Lasting impression: it's very comforting to know I am in good hands (no pun intended) with Dr. Kline as confidence is part of the treatment regime.

Rude and Seemed like he'd rather be anywhere but seeing patients

I felt like I was taking up his precious time and wished I'd never made an appointment with him.

Doesn't follow through with the patient. Left messages for him and his secretary and neither contacted me back.

I have seen him on four occasions and am seeking a new physician. He is very abrupt, does not listen to my symptoms. He cuts me off when I try to tell him where my hand hurts. On first visit for left hand, after x ray he said it is DEFINITELY NOT arthritis, it is tendonitis. Gave me a brace and pills & .said if not better in four weeks we'll try cortisone and then maybe surgery. When I went back still in pain, he said it is not tendonitis , it is arthritis and ordered physical therapy. Gets up and walks out. Never asked if I had any questions.

Dr. Kline is very professional, compassionate and very thorough. His diagnosis, surgical procedure and follow up are exemplary.

Great surgeon. Not very personable. Terse explanations. I felt like I was slowing him down when I interacted with him. When I first got my diagnosis, I was still in a bit of shock with what he told me, then the appointment was ended and I was scheduled for surgery.
avoid this Dr at all costs

Very pompous and rude. Told me nothing about the surgery for carpel tunnel. When I started to ask a question about the surgery he said is staff would answer any questons. Nurse knew nothing and seemed very frustrated. She said she doesn't usually work with him. I asked the Anethesiologist just before he put me to sleep if he could tell me what was going to happen. He did not do any follow-up after my surgery. I contacted the office to inquire about follow-up appointments. The 2 follow-up appointments I had with him; again he spent no time to discuss anything or what I could expect now that the procedure was over.
