What Patients are Saying About Dr. Thomas J. Klein, MD

  • I was very happy with Dr. Klein. He is very patient, made me feel at ease, answered all my questions and despite having a busy schedule did not rush me on my decisions. He was waiting patiently in the room giving me time to process the information. Very caring professional. I was so happy I referred a friend whose toddler had some fractures and they were also very happy with Dr. Klein. So very happy with the experience."
    — Patient Satisfaction Survey Comment
  • "On July 2nd, 2013, you and your team gave me a new right hip and, as a result, a new lease on life. For six long – and increasingly uncomfortable – (read: painful) years, I hobbled around, wishing, hoping, willing it to get better. But as was the order of things, at last, all the cartilage disappeared, bone seated on bone, and I became a miserable woman. Standing for any length of time was excruciating. Forget running; even walking became a chore. I actually said to myself, out loud, "I will never be happy again." And then I limped into your office. You and your team alleged my fears of what I considered "scary" surgery (I'd seen the videos on YouTube!). You explained what I was looking at on the x–rays (not a very pretty picture, my poor hip, my faithful 60–year–old hip). After listening to your assessment and your explanation of the steps leading up to, during, and after surgery, I felt a calm assurance that I was embarking on the right course of action. Eight months later, still doing the exercises prescribed by Jennifer Cox, my wonderful and in–dispensable physical therapist at Town Center Parkway in Reston. I am a very happy person. No more limp at all – no more chronic pain. Who knew what a toll such pain takes! We live with it and live with it, and it's not until it's gone that we realize how poor our quality of life had become. I know I speak for many. So, Dr. Klein, all of this to say thank you from the bottom of my heart – to you and your wonderful team – for resurrecting my jaie de vivre! and making me well."
    — Patient Letter to Dr. Klein
  • "I congratulate you upon being named — with a full page photograph, too — in the 2014 listing of "Best Docs" in the Washingtonian. You deserve it, to be sure! Rarely do more than a few days go by that I don't mention how grateful I am for you and your skills and the good people of the whole practice at Commonwealth Orthopaedics — your PA and the PT folks. You changed my life for the better with hip implants 2x – Nov 2012 and Jan 2013. I'm glad you've been recognized and honored. God bless you! PS – Just got back from a week of snorkeling in St. John, USVI. Couldn't have done it before!"
