Dr. Kleiber completed his medical doctorate at the University of Southern California, Keck School of Medicine.

    Listened, and questioned to make sure we were both on the same mind set

  • Aug 19, 2021

    Once I got to see Dr. Kleiber things went well. He was clear in his explanations and thorough in his physical examination - but through no fault of his, I did not actually get to see him until 50 minutes after the time of my appointment. Someone, I do not recall whom, said to me "no one told us you were sitting out there." It set a bad tone for the appointment. Dr. Kleiber himself was excellent.
