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 are the risk factors that put a person at higher risk for developing an HPV infection?
A:
The major risk factors for getting an HPV infection include a history of multiple partners, having had sex with a person with a previous STD (sexual transmitted disease), having unprotected sex, and early age of first sexual contact. Both men who are uncircumcised and their partners have an increased risk of contracting HPV infections. Smoking has also been associated with a higher risk of acquiring an HPV infection.

Q: Are most cases of HPV caused by sexual contact?
A:
The vast majority of cases of HPV are caused by sexual contact. Early studies of cervical cancer documented the fact that it was exceptionally rare to see cervical cancer in nuns, and when cervical cancer was found in this group the individuals were found to have have an errant lifestyle in their earlier life not consistent with the code of contact they adapted after entering the convent.

Q: Was/is a man or woman promiscuous if they have been found to have genital warts, or an HPV-related infection or cancer?
A:
The fact that an individual person develops an HPV infection only indicates that they had contact with somebody who was a carrier of the HPV virus. There are many instances where a person had only one lifetime sexual contact which may not even have involved intercourse but which nonetheless resulted in an HPV infection. Each person has their own individual history and circumstances and no extrapolations should be made beyond the facts.

Q: Can a person who had very limited sexual activity get an HPV infection?
A:
There are cases of individuals getting an HPV infection who have had only one sexual partner or only one sexual contact in their entire lifetime. There are cases of people getting an HPV infection who never had sex.

Q: What percentage of people have an HPV infection?
A:
The prevalence of HPV infection in the adult population in the United States is very large. Studies have demonstrated that 50% – 80% of sexually active adults having been exposed to HPV infections by the time they are 50 years old.

Q: Does it mean that a woman has been promiscuous if she has an HPV infection?
A:
There are cases of women who have documented HPV infections who are virgins and have never had a sexual contact in their lifetime.

Q: If my partner has an HPV infection, does this mean that he/she has been unfaithful?
A:
The presence of an HPV infection indicates that the person was exposed to HPV by a current or previous partner. The past infection may have been contracted years ago and been reactivated when a person was tired, stressed out, ill or in certain cases for no readily apparent reason at all. It is factually inaccurate, unfair and does not do any good to accuse a partner of having been unfaithful based only on the fact that they had an HPV infection. You have to look carefully at the individual circumstances.

Q: What should I do if my partner is diagnosed with an HPV infection?
A:
You should go to your physician in order to be evaluated. You should use condoms until each of you are clear of the infection for a 3-6 month period of time during the incubation period. You should be supportive of your partner(s) so that both of you can be successfully evaluated and if necessary treated so that you can both move forward in the relationship.

Q: What is the most important factor that puts you at risk for developing an HPV infection?
A:
The main factor that puts a person at risk for developing an HPV infection is having a sexual relationship with a partner who has had multiple previous partners. The chances of contracting HPV are very much increased in a patient who has had multiple previous partners. The more partners that a person had the higher chances are that they have been infected and are contagious and can transmit the infection to others in the future.

Q: Does this mean that when I am having sex with my partner I can catch something that my partner got from somebody else?
A:
When you have sex with someone you are being exposed to every previous sexual partner they ever had and all of their stuff.

Q: What factors other than stress can weaken my immunity and decrease my resistance against HPV infections?
A:
Smoking, too much alcohol or drugs, poor diet, chronic diseases, other STD’ s, immunosuppressive medications and being older are additional factors that can weaken a person’ s resistance against HPV infections.

Q: What are the risk factors for a man to get an HPV infection?
A:
The factors that put women and men at increased risk of getting an HPV infection include multiple sexual partners, a large number of sexual partners, being in a younger age groups (15-25 yo), early age of first intercourse, unprotected sex, high frequency of sexual intercourse, cigarette smoking, second hand smoke exposure, being uncircumcised or having sex with a man who is uncircumcised.

Q: Why do you see more HPV in younger people?
A:
The main reason that HPV infections are most common in younger age groups is that this is a time of sexual experimentation when people are more likely to have multiple partners, unprotected sex and smoke.
