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..

How is HPV transmitted?

  • HPV is transmitted through sexual contact. It is passed along by skin-to-skin contact. The forms of sexual contact by which a person can get an HPV infection include vaginal, oral, and anal sex.
  • HPV can also be transmitted from rubbing which may occur during foreplay. In these instances, the infection which first appeared on areas outside the body can spread to areas inside the body.
  • HPV transmitted during oral sex can result in infections of the tonsils and tongue (oropharyngeal infections). These infections affect both women and men but occur much more frequently in men.

HPV can also be transmitted by the fingers. A patient or their partner may have HPV on the skin of their fingers from touching a touching an infected area. Alternatively, they may have HPV underneath their nails. An HPV infection can thus be spread by touching oneself or others or during the bathing process or touching different areas of the body. This explains cases of HPV in the anal area in men or women who have not had sexual activity in this area.

Risk of transmission to a partner
The growths may resolve on their own without treatment. They can also remain unchanged in size and number or increase in size and number and spread to infect entirely new areas. Early stage infection can be difficult to detect when the bumps are small and blend in with the normal skin.

Genital warts are very contagious and present a real risk of infection to a partner. Preventive measures should be taken until the genital warts are treated in order to not put partners at risk.

What are the symptoms of having an infection?
Many patients are not aware of the fact that they have an HPV infection. The growths can be subtle and often do not cause any symptoms. Therefore, even new small growths should be checked out by a doctor because the most innocuous bump can be an early sign of HPV infection.

Woman often first learn that they have an HPV infection when they go for a routine gynecologic examination and are informed that they have a positive Pap smear. If a woman is diagnosed to have an HPV infection her partner would benefit from learning whether he also has an infection. The goal is to minimize the chances that the infection continues to be transmitted between partners and to ensure that the man is treated so that the man will not be a potential future source of infection to anybody.

How long after sexual contact will genital warts appear?
HPV infections can have a long incubation period. The time period over which HPV infections will be detectible can range from several months to over a year after initial contact. The low risk 6 and 11 HPV strains have a duration of 6 months while the high risk 16 and 18 strains have a duration of 12 months.

Can a person be the source of an infection without having any symptoms?
Most people do not realize that they are infected and do not have any signs or symptoms of an infection. They frequently caught the infection from somebody who also did not realize that they were infected.

Asymptomatic shedding is common and is an important way by which infection is spread between partners. Asymptomatic shedding refers to the situation where the person who is infected does not have detectable growths yet is shedding and transmitting small amounts of viral particles to their partner who will then get infected.

Infections occur more frequently after sexual activity because abrasion and localized trauma allow easier entry of the HPV virus through the skin. A reservoir of infection underneath the surface of the skin is then established which will serve as the source of the future spread of infection.

The term Cancer Charlie was originally coined for men whose female sexual contacts developed cancer of the cervix because the man was an asymptomatic carrier of the high risk 16/18 strains. The term Cancer Charlie also refers to a gay man who is transmitting the high-risk strains to their male partner who then gets infected and may develop an HPV-related malignancy.

If my partner has an HPV infection, does that mean that he/she has been unfaithful?
The fact that a person has an HPV infection indicates that they were exposed to the HPV virus by a current or past partner. One should always first look at who were their most recent past partners in the last 6 months. However, the infection may also have been acquired years ago, been effectively contained by the body’s immune system and only recently activated when the individual’s immune system became compromised.

Do condoms help decrease the spread of HPV infections?
Condoms significantly decrease the chances of getting an HPV infection. Condoms are not a perfect barrier to infection, as they can easily break, ride up on the shaft of the penis, leave the base of the penis exposed and are not protective of those areas that are not covered by the condom. Despite these common issues, condoms are still the best defense against HPV infections.
