Dr. Klein is very experienced with injecting and aesthetic treatments, she knows what she is doing, she takes the time to understand your concern and gives honest feedback about her recommendations to meet your needs. She made the experience comfortable and I am thrilled with my results!

Thank you Dr. K for making me beautiful again. Once you go to Dr. K you will not want to go anywhere else. She is an artist that works quickly with perfect results in a very professional, yet friendly, environment. I would not trust my cosmetic procedures to anyone else. Also, she has wonderful specials and events.

I moved to Orange County from the Burbank area many months ago. I wanted to find someone comparable to my last practitioner. I found immediate confidence in Dr. K. There is no mystery in the procedures offered. She explains her treatments thoroughly and allows time for questions. I never feel rushed. Dr. K's "bedside manner" and experience have given me reason to return for further treatments when needed. The office staff members aim to please and Dr. K's assistant medical staff are professionally skilled. I also enjoy taking advantage of some of Dr. K's monthly specials that she offers in her newsletters.

Dr. K is an excellent dermatologist and very knowledgeable about cosmetic procedures, her advice is sincere and accurate, she really cares about her patients.

Dr. K runs a great practice, so why only three stars? Because everything is over priced, that's why. There are equally qualified practioners out there charging half of what she does, but I will say that I got a good deal on the Botox :) The IPL was COMPLETELY over-priced, so I went elsewhere with excellent results. If you are an Orange County houswife looking to spend you mans hard earned money as fast as possible, then you are at the right place. But if both excellent results and a fair price are important to you, then there are other options out there. I would certainly return here for Botox.

Dr. K is the best. I have had Fraxel, Botox and Artefill, she is an artist with fillers. A friend recommended her and I am glad I found her. I am also needle phobic and she stopped half way through injecting my fillers so I could take a moment. Dr. K, I appreciate you working with me and I LOVE what you did to my cheeks!!

I waited until I was in my 50's to use Botox and Juvaderm mostly because of the ghastly looking women I would see. They didn't look normal any more and they didn't look like themselves. Dr. K does these injections in such a way that I look like I did when I was much younger. I still look like myself and I never look "done." I feel so much better about my appearance now and only wish I'd have found her office sooner than after I turned 50.

Dr K is the best in her field - I have shopped around! When you want natural results she is the only Doctor I trust.

Dr. K is so knowledgable and skilled at providing cosmetic dermatology. She listens to what I want but also provides the perfect balance of adding her own suggestions based on her vast experience. In addition, Dr. Klein makes sure I am comfortable. I received both Juviderm and Botox injections with no pain. I whole-heartedly recommend Dr. K. Dr. K also provides several packages and incentives that can save her patients money on the procedures.

Dr. Klein is truly an artist. She is able to sculpt one's face to make it look more youthful but still natural. Isn't that the whole point? She does it beautifully!

I have been going to Dr. K for over two years and am extremely satisfied with her services, knowledge of products and the manner by which she knows what needs done. When I receive her services, I allow her expertise to determine exactly what I need from a botox or filler perspective.

I had Botox and Juvederm with Dr. K. I am 4 days post procedure, and absolutely love the results. Dr. K Injected me with Botox, which gives me a refreshed look. The filler in my cheeks, around my mouth and in my lips is a nice compliment to the Botox. Dr. K is talented and her staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Love this office!
Posted by Orange County9478
She is one of the doctors that trains physicians in the use of Botox and Juvederm at Allergan. Very pleased with my results and I will definitely be returning. Excellent staff - they answered all my questions thoroughly! The staff was very nice to work with and I am so pleased that Joanne has returned. She is an asset to the organization!

Dr K spent a lot of time listening and paying close attention to my feelings about the lines around my mouth. I feel very comfortable with her experience and advice.

Dr.only after the money. She told me one price then came time for the procedure (two weeks later) she raised the price a lot. She rushed through my procedure and the results were worst than what I started out with. She was rude when I told her I was disappointed. If you have lots of money then she will probably do a good job but if not then you better go somewhere else.

Dr. K is always approachable and willing to talk to me and answer any questions I might have. She performs treatments quickly and without any fuss. Her staff is very friendly and are very knowledgeable about the products and services offered.

Have been going to Dr. K for 16 years for dermatology and the last 6 years for fillers. Makes her recommendations as to what would work best for you and is right on every time. Kind, intelligent, and answers every question to your satisfaction. She is an expert at what she does and I come out looking amazing every time.

Dr. K is more than a doctor. She's an artist. I've been to other doctors before who just don't have the eye and the finesse that she has.

Dr. K really knows how to do it just for your face. She also has specials if you sign up to her e-mail list that are really money saving. I highly recommend her and would even pay her more if I had to (but I don't).

I've been getting fillers and botox for the past 6 years from Dr. Klein and have always been thrilled with the results. She is caring and honest.....never "selling" or pushing services that she doesn't feel will benefit you. I would highly recommmend her to anyone that wants the most highly trained professional in her field.

She takes her time - I have been going to her for a while and she gets to what you like and want. I have not experienced any pain - She also does my Botox and I am very happy with the results can't think of who else I would ever go to

I went to Dr. K for Botox and Juvaderm. She had great suggestions as to where to use the Botox and actually used less than my previous doctor with better results! The same is true for the Juvaderm, she used it in areas that gave me great results. I was very impressed with Dr. K and the time she took to actually look at my face and assess where to use the products.

Wow, little did I know that plumping up the cheeks could be such a booster for my morale. I originally went to see Dr. K to have something done for the parentheses () around my nose and the lines around my mouth which look like a puppet. Dr. K appeared to notice my disappointment with the aging process and recommended plumping up the hollows of my cheeks and around my lips. There was no pressure at all; it was as though she was reading my mind. She also added a little Botox for the sagging eye lids, the jowl line and between the eyes. There was a little bruising but it was worth it. I look refreshed but not overdone. I am very happy with the results!

Dr. Klein listened to my needs as well as my concerns. She was not aggressive in her recommendations and supported the baby steps I needed. Her staff was kind and patient with all of my questions and time needed to digest information. A lovely experience all around.

Dr. K is so professional and always helpful. She is a very kind person. No matter what I do with her she does her best. I love the excitment she gets over what she does. I always feel safe in her hands and I know she will do a great job.

She is an absolute artist with Radiesse, Botox and other tools of her trade. The results are amazing!
Posted by 498658anon
I have had two different sessions with Dr. K. On the first, I used Juviderm plus around my mouth. She gently explained to me how she felt I could best benefit from dermafillers. I decided to use Juviderm Plus, using only one syringe. I did not get exactly the result I was hoping for, but she did not push me, as she wanted me to feel comfortable. On the next visit, I made an appointment on the special radiesse day and purchased two l.5 syringes of the radiesse, using one in my cheeks and one around my mouth. Although I did not originally think the hollows of my cheeks were the main focus, I relied on her judgment and expertise and she was right! I had slight brusing around my mouth which lasted about a week, but I am very pleased with the results. The experience was virtually pain-free with only slight bruising. I love my new face!

Dr Klein is an expert in her field. This is my third visit and second radiesse fill. I could hardly wait to go back for my annual fill for cheeks and smile lines..no hesitation..I had already experienced the best fill I had ever had last year and this visit was no exception. She's the best and it's so worth it! When I look in the mirror I feel about 10 years younger. We're so fortunate to have great fillers and a doc who really knows how to administer them.

Dr. K has a nice bedside manner and is very informative about her products and services. She is conservative and I like that so it's a natural looking effect and not overstated.

Dr. K is very skilling in filler techniquess and results. Her recommendations for slight touches make a huge difference on removing wrinkles and adding a youthful look. And in my case, all done without additional filler purchase.
Posted by 7578anon
Dr. K's knowledge base is vast and she is always up to date on all the current procedures, the pros and cons. The actualy procedure was painfree. She explained everything she was doing and I felt comfortable at all times. She was attentive to what I had to say.

Dr. K is very talented and skilled at what she does. I have been to top dermatologists over the years and I was very impressed with her. She is extremely gentle and kind. I was very impressed with her and her staff! I would highly recommend her! I look forward to becoming a patient of her for many years ahead!

Dr. Klein is an amazing artist with Artefill and all of her other products and procedures. She has many years of experience and is a true cutting-edge dermatologist with the skill to change lives. She focuses on getting the maximum positive results without ever crossing that line into that artificial or "scary" look we have all seen done by so many other doctors. I can easily recommend her as the best I have ever seen or used...she makes the entire experience a pleasure with her flowing personality, attention to detail and avoidance of pain as much as possible.
Posted by DMB
The cost is not high compared to what other doctors do. She injects Radiesse into my Nasofolds, Marionette lines, lifts the mouth corners, fills in my indented chin, adds fullness to a small area on my checks and fills my nose, so it looks straight and to lift the dropping tip. I was so amazed at what she can do with the nose, what an artist she is! I am so lucky to have found her. And you will be too.

She is the best! When doing cosmetic procedures like Botox,juvederm or maybe any procedure the product is really only half the equation. The other half and most important is the physician skill and experience. Dr. K is tops when it comes to skill...she is an "artist"!

I had seen and heard about so many bad results and was afraid to try Botox and fillers. My friend told me Dr K was an artist and that I would be thrilled. She was so right. Now I look in the mirror and don't see a tired face looking back at me. People tell me I look great and no one asks if I had work done! Dr. K said she would give me 10 years and she did!

I had a Radiesse treatment performed by Dr. K yesterday. Dr. K made me feel very comfortable which was great for my first time using a filler. She explained everything as she went along and I am thrilled with my results. I would absolutely recommend her for any cosmetic dermatology procedure.
Posted by Washington5816
Dr. answered all my questions and explained each step of the process along the way. Dr. K is an artist/sculptor as well as a doctor and she loves what she does. If that doesn't speak volumes then I don't know what does! She doesn't oversell. You have to ask! So, ASK! I say go for it! I waited two years and wish i had gone sooner. The staff is a great bunch! They are efficient and they know their business! Costs? Comparable and they run specials! Which I love! No hard selling here and the place is booming with customers which is always a good sign.
Posted by Janette33
I think Dr. K's prices are higher than other doctors in the area. They are within the range if she has a special. She's very nice and answered all my questions but in a very rushed way. I would have asked her more questions if I didn't feel so rushed. The waiting time is very long in the waiting room and then you go in the treatment room and wait some more. I've been to several doctors for various cosmetic procedures, and she's the only one hasn't taken photos.

I have been seeing Dr. Klein for over 10 years & won't go to another Dr. She has been professional & consistent. Never once have i had an issue with Botox or fillers.

I'm seriously blown away with Dr Klein. As I was searching for a new Dr, I kept coming across positive reviews for Dr Klein. I probably visited her website 100 times as I was making my decision. After all- even with positive reviews- it's a bit scary to go to a new Dr who will work on your FACE! Though I live an hour from her office, I decided to follow my instinct and made an appt. Over the last two years, I tried Botox and filler with one of San Diego's top injectors. But I always felt kind of iffy about his technique and had a few bad experiences. So off I went to Dr Klein. First impression- wow, she's friendly! Second impression- she knows what she's taking about. Not only was it obvious that she was a top expert with both Botox and fillers, but she took time to thoroughly explain her suggestions as well as take my concerns into account.
Posted by sleepyinpink
I did tons of research before selecting Dr. Klein. Although I found a few other places that offered greater discounts, those places had nurses injecting the filler. Paying the extra money to have an experienced dr do the procedure is well worth the peace of mind, imo. My experience with Dr. Klein was perfect! She answered all my questions, there was practically zero pain involved and I was out in less than 30 min (without feeling rushed) because she didnt keep me waiting forever like some dr's do.

Dr. Klein truly is an artist. She "designs" where to inject botox and/or a filler, so that your face looks natural and youthful; never fake or frozen. I've been seeing Dr. K for 10+ years, and never once have I been asked "Do you get botox?". I've only been asked "How do you stay so young?" Only Dr. K knows that answer... :-)

My visit to Dr. Klein's office was priceless. I was in and out on time and there were no surprises. The staff are very kind and so helpful. Dr. Klein took the time to answer all of my questions. I was so pleased, I referred my mother to Dr. Klein and she came from out of state for her visit.

I have been seeing Dr.Klein for more than ten years and she is without a doubt an artist. My family never new that I was using both Botox and Juvederm. The goal of the procedures is that it enhance your appearance and that you continue to look natural. I just recently told my family and my husband was surprised but was not displeased. My decision to try the procedures was to grow older gracefully and I have done just that. I will continue to see Dr, Klein I like the way I look and so does my family.

This is the second time I have gone to Dr. Klein for Radiesse. I went to a Plastic Surgeon in Orange County prior to Dr. Klein for Radiesse and his procedure was very fast w.o. much concern for what I wanted to achieve. Dr. Klein takes a lot of time and the results are wonderful. I will never go to any other physician.

I went to Dr. Klein as I'd done some research and heard only good things regarding her practice and her technique. I felt comfortable the moment I walked in the front door. I accidentally walked into the day spa side, and was graciously escorted to the appropriate area by a very friendly staff member. I was greeted at the desk by another staffer that was every bit as polite as the first. As this was my first visit, I was given paperwork to fill out. I completed the paperwork, and was called to the back just moments later. I was given some literature regarding my chosen procedures to read while waiting. I didn't have to wait long. Dr. Klein came in, and was very warm, friendly and conversational. She immediately put me at ease. We discussed what I considered my issues, and the amount of money I could afford to spend, then mapped out a plan of care that suited both perfectly. She listened well to what I had to say, and made valuable suggestions. All in all it was a great experience, and I will be going back, and also recommending her to my friends.

Posted by TQLewis
Always check which Frazel machine the Doctor is using. Ask how the wand travels over your face: it is a rolling motion that activates the lasers. It should never be picked up and moved to the next spot on your face. Never go to a discount place, or have a P.A. administer this procedure. Get someone that is certified to do it. It's your FACE! Get references before you go, or ask for references. Start with a MILD setting only, don't try to get the most bang for your buck out of the first attempt.

Dr Klein is a very skilled dermatologist - I have used other doctors in the past for botox treatments and once I found her when I moved to Orange County I have used no one else.
