World Class Physician

Posted on October 1st, 2013

Dr. Klein - Gitelman, treats the whole patient not just the condition. She has been treating my daughter for the last 6 years and treats the physical symptoms as much as the pyschological symptoms of living with pain and being "different" from other children. She is actively involved in the Arthritis community and has been a great resource and support system for parents (especially for those with newly diagnosed children). I would highly recommend Dr. Klein Gitelman to any patient! The wait time is very long because it is a teaching hospital and the sheer volume of patients, but we've made the most of our time there by reading, doing homework, etc. The nurses and support staff are exceptionally nice and accomodating. However, you must make your next appointment before you leave or it will be very difficult to get time in her schedule.

Dr. Klein-Gitelman has a very courteous staff as well as very impressive credentials. Unfortunately, it is very difficult to get an appointment with her unless you are making it 3 or 4 months in advance, and when you are there, you'd better be prepared for an hour wait. For the time spent waiting, you don't get much time with Dr. K-G. Overall, however, she is a good doctor though.

Kind and Compassionate

Posted on February 3rd, 2013

Dr. Klein takes her time with patients. She is compassionate and understanding. It is unfortunate, that she is unwilling to listen to any alternatives/integrative ideas outside of straight pharmaceuticals. Her hospital attending, Dr. Michael Miller, is a detriment to her practice. He will threaten you with custody of your child if you do not comply 100% with their treatment plans and all consults. An open mind and willingness to work with parents would make Dr. Klein and excellent doctor!

An Excellent Physician!!!

Posted on November 3rd, 2012

I have never met a more caring and compassionate doctor than Dr. Marisa Klein-Gitelman. She is wonderful with the kids, helping them to understand what is wrong with them, and is so loving to the parents of these sick kids. Not only does she have excellent credentials but she is an excellent researcher. If your looking for a physician/Rheumatologist for your child she is the one you want!!

Worth the Wait

Posted on June 30th, 2011

After seeing many doctors who were unable to make a diagnosis she was able to during the first visit. While it is very difficult to see her and there is often a long wait, it is well worth it. She is one of the kindest and most patient doctors I have seen (and I have seen quite a few). Very competent and extremely knowledgeable she puts patients and their families at ease and well spend as long as necessary with you.
