Dr. Alan Kling MD. – Kling Dermatology
Dr. Alan Kling M.D. - Dermatologist Upper East Side & Brooklyn – Best Dermatologist NYC I was referred to Dr. Kling’s office because of a recurrent problem I’ve had for awhile. I had already seen two other dermatologists and I kept having a problem and it seemed like this thing would keep going on forever. I asked my internist for a referral and he said that Dr. Kling was the absolute only guy I should go to for this problem. I was already I little fed up with doctors but I decided to go anyway for a consult. Boy, am I glad that I did! Dr. Kling explained what was going on and gave me reading material so I would understand what was going on. I followed his advice and I finally have this condition under control. I finally feel normal again. He really did a lot for me.. I was referred by my family doctor and think that Dr. Kling is an excellent physician. I initially came in with along list of questions about my condition and he read the list and answered all of my questions. The doctor I went to before couldn?t be bothered and he took one look at my list and essentially walked out of the office. I changed jobs and the location of my new job was not that convenient to Dr. Kling’s office but I would switch around my schedule to go to see him because he is very nice and very smart and very personable and that is not an easy combination to find. Dr. Kling put me on a medication that I have to take on a regular basis, and whenever I come into the office he checks in his laboratory to see if there are any samples. He once had his secretary track down the drug representative so that he could get free samples so that he could give them to me. How good is that? Dr. Kling has been treating me for psoriasis for a long time. Dr. Kling placed me on many different medications over time until he found a regimen that worked best for me. I was most impressed by the fact that whenever there was a new medication or treatment he would research it and explain it to me thoroughly beforehand, so I knew what to expect. He also once stayed late in order to remove a large cyst on my back that had started to drain. He rescheduled something else he had going on in order to get this done because he knew that I would not have been able to go into work the next day if it wasn’t first removed. He really went out of his way to help. I am aware that dermatology seems to appeal to the vanity in all of us. We go to a Doctor and expect miracles even if we’ve had problems for a lifetime. What I feel I have to say and what is probably the most important is that Dr Kling takes the right approach. He sits you down and truly formulates a treatment path that makes sense and actually works! I’d had a host of issues and one by one he explained the relationships between all of them. The myth and mystery were stripped away and even though my problems were of a personal nature I was always made to feel comfortable and in the best of hands. I no longer hesitate going for treatment, as Dr Kling has made me at ease and comfortable . It’s nice when you’ve found the “Right Guy”. Doctor Kling really listened to my concerns and talked to me thoroughly before recommending a course of action. He didn’t pressure me and took his time to make sure that all of my questions were answered once he recommended a treatment. He’s very friendly and seems to have a great deal of experience. I’ve seen a few dermatologists in NYC and Dr. Kling is definitely the best so far. Also, his staff is extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and patient (unlike any other office staff I’ve seen). The entire staff was very accommodating and friendly. Dr. King is professional, courteous, and genuinely cares about your well being. Some of the reviews made me hesitant to make my 1st appointment. As yet, my experience was just great and Dr. King engaged for more than thirty minutes explaining and clarifying my questions. I certainly recommend Dr. King to family and friends. I’ve been seeing Dr. Kling for about ten years. My complexion was bad with the stress I was having from work and the medications other doctors were giving me weren’t really working that well. Dr. Kling go me on a regimen that worked and everything is now (finally!) more or less under control. Those injections he gives me make the acne bumps go down in a day or two. They are great when you know an important business meeting is coming up or something social is going on. I was seeing Dr. Kling on a regular basis for several months before my wedding to make sure that I looked good for my big day and it turned out so well that I continued to see him on a regular basis ever since. He also helped me out with this contact allergy I had to the nickel in my wedding ring (can you believe it?), but that’s another story. . What does this man do to keep himself looking young? I have had every imaginable combination of chemical peels, Botox, filler, sclerotherapy and I’m really happy with the results but he says that he doesn’t do any of that stuff for himself. What does this man do to keep himself looking so young? He says that he uses sunscreen. I’ve gone to him for over twenty years and he looks the same age. Whatever he has, I want it!. I was referred by my family doctor and think that Dr. Kling is an excellent physician. I initially came in with along list of questions about my condition and he read the list and answered all of my questions. The doctor I went to before couldn’t be bothered and he took one look at my list and essentially walked out of the office. I changed jobs and the location of my new job was not that convenient to Dr. Kling’s office but I would switch around my schedule to go to see him because he is very nice and very smart and very personable and that is not an easy combination to find. Dr. Kling put me on a medication that I have to take on a regular basis, and whenever I come into the office he checks in his laboratory to see if there are any samples. He once had his secretary track down the drug representative so that he could get free samples so that he could give them to me. How good is that?. I teach at a private school close to Dr. Kling’s office. There are many other teachers there who go to his office and they all think that he does great work. There are also many students who have been referred to him through the years and they have also been very enthusiastic about him. I have seen Dr. Kling on and off for about ten years and he has helped me a lot with my condition. I was referred to Dr. Kling by my internist. I had previously been seeing another physician but the condition I had was not getting better. Dr. Kling was extremely meticulous and thorough. I saw him on a regular basis and eventually it got better. I am now going to graduate school out of town at a place which is several hours away from NYC, but I make the follow up visits back to NYC to see Dr. Kling. I am not switching doctors. It’s not so easy to find somebody who knows what they are doing.. I was originally referred to Dr. Kling by my best friend, who spoke very highly of him and strongly encouraged me to go. I have been going to see Dr. Kling on and off for about 20 years for lots of different stuff that just comes up. I’m amazed that he always gets the diagnosis right. Sometimes the stuff that I had was pretty straightforward. Other times, he would ask question after question and then zoom in on what it was. The most important thing is that I always got better. I have many friends and co-workers who have gone to him both at my old firm and the firm where I am now, and they all had really positive experiences with him. My wife and my daughters have also gone to him and he has also been very helpful with them. I first saw Dr. Kling years ago when I had a bad infection. He gave me a prescription and samples of the medication that he had in the office to make sure that it had a chance to work as soon as possible.. He spent a lot of time explaining my condition to me. I was really scared and I called him with a lot of questions. He was very patient. I still come to the office now for other things. He was very helpful. Both my wife and I have gone to Dr. Kling. I had a pretty perplexing skin condition and I was told by my family doctor that Dr. Kling was the person to see to figure it out. He spent a lot of time talking and explaining things to me. I had seen two other doctors before, and I realized that educating me about what I had was the most important step so that I was motivated to do what I had to do in order to get it under control. I’ve bumped into Dr. Kling at social things over the years and I am always glad to see him. I like talking to him..

Q: What is the connection between HPV and cervical cancer?
A: HPV infections are the cause of cancer in the cervix 99% of cases.

Q: How long does it take for cancer of the cervix to develop?
A: There is usually a 20 year period of time between the time that a person was first infected with HPV and the time when an invasive cancer of the cervix is detected.

Q: When did the woman who gets cervical cancer acquire the actual infection that caused the cancer?
A: Most cases of HPV infection which eventually progress into cancer of the cervix were first contracted when the woman was a teenager or young adult.

Q: How could a women minimize the chances of her getting an HPV infection and possibly cervical cancer?
A: A woman who wants to minimize her chances of getting an HPV infection and cervical cancer would need to decrease the risk factors for acquiring an infection, which include minimizing the number of sexual partners, using condoms, not smoking, and avoiding passive smoke exposure.

Q: What is the long term prognosis for a women diagnosed to have cervical cancer?
A: The prognosis depends on the stage at which the diagnosis of cervical cancer is made. The stage refers to how far along the infection has progressed. The earlier the stage the better the survival rate.

Q: What are the survival rates for cervical cancer?
A: The five year survival rate of cervical cancer in the early stages of the disease is 96%-99%. The five year survival rate for the late stages of the disease is 15%-20%.

Q: How serious is the prognosis if a woman gets diagnosed with cervical cancer at a late stage?
A: The prognosis is always more favorable for any cancer when it is diagnosed at an early stage, so that the appropriate therapeutic interventions can be initiated as the soonest possible time. Diagnostic screening tests and effective treatments for HPV infections, precancers and cancers are available to those women who are screened appropriately and regularly on their health care providers.

Q: Can an HPV infection progress rapidly and in a short period of time from an infection to a more advanced cancer?
A: Most cases of cervical cancer are detected at an early stage when a woman gets cervical cancer screening on a regular basis. An infection that evolves and progresses from an early infection to an invasive cancer despite screenings at regular intervals would be extremely rare.

Q: Is cervical cancer preventable?
A: Cervical cancer is preventable in the vast majority of cases. Most cases of cervical cancer can be detected at an early stage of development in women who are properly screened at regular intervals. Cervical cancer usually occurs in instances where the women did not get her screening tests at the appropriate regularly prescribed intervals.

Q: If a woman is diagnosed with an HPV infection, does that mean that she may get cancer of the cervix?
A: The fact that a women has an HPV infection does not automatically mean that she is going to get cancer of the cervix. The vast majority of women who have an HPV infection have the low risk (benign) strains that have zero potential to progress into any type of cancer. Only high risk strains of HPV have the potential to progress into cancer of the cervix, and only a small percentage of the high risk strains evolve into cervical cancer.

Q: What percentage of people infected with HPV have high risk strains?
A: 10% of the people infected with HPV have the high risk strains. Only a small percentage of high risk strains will progress and evolve into cancer of the cervix.

Q: Will a woman get cervical cancer if she has high risk strains?
A: A women will not necessarily get cervical cancer if high risk strains of HPV are identified. Nonetheless, she needs to be closely monitored by her doctor because she will have a higher risk for developing an abnormal Pap smear (cervical dysplasia) or a cervical cancer.

Q: How common is cervical cancer in the United States?
A: Over 11,000 women in the United States develop cervical cancer each year.

Q: How many women die each year in the United States from cervical cancer?
A: 4,000 women/year die from cervical cancer in the United States.

Q: Why are so women dying from cervical cancer if there are so many screening tests available to detect cervical precancers and cancers?
A: Most of the deaths from cervical cancer are preventable if the women had gone to their physicians or health care providers and gotten checkups. Many of the people who develop cervical cancer fell between the cracks of the health care system. Cervical cancer is a preventable disease in developed countries – and hopefully one day also in developing countries – and does not need to happen.

Q: Isn’t 4000 deaths/year from cervical cancer a lot of people dying?
A: Although 4,000 deaths per year from cervical cancer is a far greater number than is acceptable, it remains a relatively small number considered in the context of the fact that the United States has a population of over 300 million people.

Q: How common is cervical cancer on a worldwide basis?
A: Cervical cancer is the third most common cancer in women worldwide. An estimated 533,000 women worldwide were diagnosed with cervical cancer in 2008, according to Cancer Research UK. The developing countries have the largest burden of cervical cancer and account for 86% of all cases diagnosed worldwide in 2008.

Q: How does the incidence of cervical cancer in Latin America and the Caribbean compare to the incidence in the United States?
A: The mortality rate from cervical cancer is 5x higher in Latin American and the Caribbean compared to North America. The main reason is lack of resources in the developing world to do adequate screening and to deliver quality health care.
