  1. I have professionally known dr Klein for 35 years as a fellow practicing ophthalmologist and I second his well deserved recognition. His dedication to patients and his volunteerism are unequaled in this day of medicine- business environment. He still makes me proud to be a Physcian and I am the better for knowing him
