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 HPV vaccine?
A: The HPV vaccine protects against contraction of the HPV virus and is specifically targeted towards the HPV strains most likely to cause genital warts and cancer.

Clinical studies have documented that the vaccine provides close to 100% protection against genital warts and pre-cancers. HPV-related cancers take 20+ years to incubate within the body.

Q: How effective is the vaccine?
A: The vaccine is effective in preventing genital warts and pre-cancers in almost all cases. However, the vaccine offers varying degrees of prevention. The two low-risk strains of HPV in the vaccine which cause genital warts offer protection against 90% of the low risk strains

The seven high risk strains of HPV in the vaccine protect against 80% of the strains that cause cervical cancer and an higher percentage of protection against certain other cancers. The high-risk HPV strains in the vaccine represent the most aggressive high-risk strains that exist so the individual who is vaccinated is protected against the most dangerous strains.

Q: Will the vaccine help me get rid of the HPV infection that I now have?
A: The vaccine is preventive but is not therapeutic. The vaccine will not help decrease the infection from strains that the patient had before being vaccinated.The vaccine will protect only against those strains to which a patient has not been exposed to previously.

Q: When is the best time to get the HPV vaccine?
A: The HPV vaccine is most effective for those people who have not yet been exposed to the HPV strains in the vaccine. People are encouraged to get the vaccine before they are sexually active or before they have had many sexual contacts.

Adolescents ages 9-14 are advised to get two vaccines over a 6-12-month period. Teens and young adults ages 15-26 need to get three vaccines over a 6-month period.

Q: Can I get the vaccine if I am older than 26?
A: The vaccine will only give a person protection against those strains in the vaccine to which they have not been previously exposed. The older that a person is the greater the chances are that they had already been exposed to at least one if not several of the strains of HPV. The vaccine will be more effective against more strains of the virus in a person who has had fewer partners. This explains why the vaccine is most effective in people who are younger and/or have had less sexual experience.

Q: What is the advantage to women if men get vaccinated?
A: Men are frequently carriers of the HPV virus. A carrier refers to a person that has an infection and sheds the virus which can then infect their partner(s). If men are vaccinated before they are exposed to an

HPV infection there is less of a chance of them acquiring it at a later date and infecting their female or male partner(s).

Q: Should men get vaccinated just so that they can decrease the chance of giving their female partners an HPV infection?
A: Men should get vaccinated because it this will protect both their partners as well as themselves from the consequences of getting an HPV infection. Men should get vaccinated in order to minimize their own chances of getting an HPV infection as well as cancers of the anus, rectum, oropharyngeal area and penis. A man who is vaccinated will have a decreased chance of acquiring a new infection if it is one of the strains in the HPV vaccine.

Q: Any other advantages for the man to get vaccinated?
A: The man who is vaccinated will be able to avoid any one of many negative psychological aspects of having a sexually transmitted disease. He will avoid the embarrassment and discomfort of informing his current or future partner(s) that has an infection. The man who is vaccinated and protected from HPV infection will be able to avoid the time, hassle and cost of visiting doctors in order to be treated.

Q: Is the HPV vaccine expensive?
A: The vaccine is not inexpensive, but is covered by insurance for men up to the age of 21-26 years of age. The advantages of getting the HPV vaccine far exceed the disadvantages of the long term expense, time, and the emotional and psychological hassles associated with having an HPV infection

Q: What kind of HPV-conditions can a man get?
A: Men can get genital warts as well as cancers of the anus, rectum oropharynx and penis.

Q: What is the most common HPV-related condition that a man can get?
A: The most frequently seen HPV-related condition that men can get are genital warts. Genital warts are usually caused by low risk HPV strains. HPV strains 6 and 11 are the most common HPV strains, and represent 90% of the causes of genital warts.

Q: What kind of cancers can a man get caused by HPV and which strains cause them?
A: In men, HPV causes cancers of the penis, anus and rectum that are associated with the high risk strains of HPV. HPV 16 and 18 represent about 70% of the HPV strains that cause these cancers. Cancers of the oropharyngeal region are also seen more frequently in men than in women, and those cancers are caused almost exclusively by HPV 16 alone.

Q: What are the guidelines for the vaccine in the gay population?
A: The vaccine is strongly recommended for gay and bisexual men and men through the age of 26. The vaccine is most effective when given at a younger age and before a person has had many sexual contacts.

Q: How effective is the vaccine in the gay population?
A: The protection against HPV infection is the same in the gay and heterosexual men. Both heterosexual and gay men who will benefit most from the vaccine are those people who have not been exposed to those strains in the vaccine to which they have not been previously exposed.

Q: Why are gay men being strongly encouraged to get the vaccine?
A: Gay men on average have a greater number of risk factors that can predispose them to increased chances of HPV infection, which includes both genital warts caused by the low risk strains and HPV-related cancers related to the high-risk strains. The cancers of the anus and rectum which occur in gay men are more aggressive and resistant to treatment than those observed in the heterosexual population.

Q: What are the risk factors for HPV that are observed more frequently in the gay population?
A: Gay men have a greater number of sexual partners and practice high-risk sex more frequently than in the heterosexual community.

Q: What is the incidence of HPV-related infections in the gay compared to the heterosexual community?
A: Genital warts are extremely common in the gay community and occur more frequently in gay men than in heterosexual men.

Q: What are the advantages to be vaccinated for a gay man?
A: Gay men who have been vaccinated have a statistically significantly decreased chance of getting genital warts as well as precursors to anal cancer. The social and psychological advantages of getting the vaccine are similar to those for straight men.

Q: What is the incidence of genital warts in the gay population?
A: Genital warts occur much more frequently in gay men than in heterosexual men.

Q: How does the frequency of anal and rectal cancers in gays compared to heterosexual men?
A: The risk of anal and rectal cancers is 30x greater in gay HIV negative men compared to heterosexual men. The incidence of anal and rectal cancers in the HIV+ population is 80x greater than in heterosexual men.

Q: Is the direct benefit to gays to get vaccinated greater than for the heterosexual male population, given the significantly higher occurrence of genital warts and anal and rectal cancers in gays?
A: Yes. Gays are a high risk group for getting HPV infections.
