Dr. Klein was incredible as was the whole staff when we took our daughter in this past Saturday night around 10:45 pm. It was Dr. Klein that had the infectious smile and calming effect that gave us a great feeling every time she came in the room. She probably doesn't remember us but we will always remember her...thanks for making a difference in this world! John Peterson
