.

Dr.Kenneth Kleinman is my Doctor for a long time.When he let us know that he is going to be part of MDVIP I decided to continue to have him my"General"Doctor. Why?
1.First of all he is incredible "stubborn".
Recently, preparing for some implants,while the surgeon was extracting some teeth,
I lost a lot of blood. Knowing that I suffer from an advanced kidney disease and
because I lost so much blood,the Doctor did not let me go on my long(3 1/2 weeks)
Vacation in Australia & New Zealand which was supposed to start in three days.
I said that I am going to loose alot of money. With out hesitation he said:
-"I don't care,you are too weak,you are going to get sick there.You can not go!".
How much I begged him-"NO"and"NO"and"NO".On the following two days he,personally,
called me at home to make sure that I postpone my trip.
Guess what?On the following week I got a cold which put me in bed for 2 weeks...
If I did not follow his stubborn"NO",I would ruin totally my vacation and I don't
know with what health consequences!
2.He has a really good expertise.
After I got well,I went to see him.
"You still can not go on vacation" he said- "Yes Doctor,you made me postpone my
trip.I did it.Now I have 2 more weeks. Why again "NO"?
-"Because I have to fortify you for such a long and tiring trip"he said.Twice a
week,before my trip he checked my"anemia"(blood tests)and pending the results he
administered me intravenous and intramuscular injections(4 times in 2 weeks).
The trip was,indeed,very,very demanding, but...I did it without any problem!
Without these injections,which clearly fortified me,I should not been able to do
such a long and demanding trip.
3.He is very thorough ,meticulous-insisting on details, very professional.
I suffer from kidney disease(stage 2-3).Last autumn, from my blood tests we
discovered that my creatinine was elevated much more than before.
-"You have to loose weight, otherwise you have to start dialysis"-"What should I
do?"I asked- First he made me watch an educational DVD about Kidney disease.
After I finished,he explained me some aspects of kidney disease, than gave me a
list of foods I can eat and what foods I have to avoid. Than he gave me a book
about rational eating,asking me to read it-slowly-to remember what is important
from it. Than he gave me a note sending me to a dietician.
Because the situation was critical,I decided to follow all the above and see the
results. What happened?I lost so far 19 pounds. But I have to loose another 12-14.
How did I do it?
1.I was very strict in eating so I don't feel "full".
2.After 8 pm I started to eat only fruit(before I was eating until midnight food)
3.I started to cook myself different meals ,90% vegetables(no salt,little oil).
4.Meat-not to much- and only fish or chicken.
5.Be determined!Do not get back to any sweet!I still have problem with to much
bread.
He was checking how I am doing every two weeks,and very enthusiastically encouraged
me not to give up!
4.Stubborn, stubborn, but he is caring and is checking on his patients!
a.I have to be honest and say that ALWAYS, ALWAYS even if he was booked, he was
finding a way to see me whenever I needed it: 1/2 hour before starting his
schedule,in his lunch time or late, after finishing his schedule.
b.He is very good on emails. He is allowing us to send him emails.Very,very
seldom he is answering later than 1 to 1-1/2 hours.Usually much less even if it is
10 pm!True!
c.I just came from my vacation.This stubborn guy already put his secretary to call
me,and asked to get an appointment for tomorrow morning.So tomorrow I am going to
see Dr.Kleinman, because he is adamant: he wants to know how am I doing, and if I
need some more treatment.
5.Now,it is clear why I decided to continue to have Dr.Kleinman as my GENERAL DOCTOR?
