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 different ways to treat an HPV infection?
A:
Methods for treating an HPV infection are broadly categorized as being either surgical or medical treatment.

Q: What are the surgical methods for treating HPV infections?
A:
Surgical methods include removal by freezing (liquid nitrogen), burning (electrodessication), cone biopsy, destruction by chemical surgery (podophyllin, TCA, BCA), excision, and laser therapy. Women can get the LEEP (loop electric excision procedure). Ablative infrared coagulation can be used to treat growths in the anal and rectal canal for both men and women.

Q: What are the medical methods for treatment HPV infections?
A:
Self-administered medications include imiquimod cream (Aldara® or Zyclara®), podofilox (Condylox), and Veregen.

Q: What are the different ways that HPV can be treated in women?
A:
In women, positive Pap smears can be followed up with colposcopically guided biopsies, freezing with liquid nitrogen (cryotherapy) or the LEEP procedure (loop electrical excision procedure). More aggressive HPV changes on the cervix have also been treated with cone biopsies. Genital warts are treated the same way as in men (see above).

Q: Should I get treated for genital warts that I have now although I am not now sexually active?
A:
Most people prefer to be treated and completely clear of warts ASAP/ First, there is certain yuck factor associated with having the infection. People also want to be ready to go if and when they have the opportunity to start a new relationship. A time when you are not sexually active is the perfect time to begin treatment.

Q: How long does treatment take?
A:
The treatment for HPV can require just one session or it may take multiple sessions if there are a large number of growths or if there are recurrences. There may be down time when you will be advised not to have sexual contact while you are healing. The follow up period after treatment is extremely important, because there is a long incubation period for the infection and you need to make sure that your physician can identify any early recurrences which may occur. There is never a good time to have down time, but when you are not currently in a relationship is an especially convenient time to get treated.

Q: Can I wait to see if the warts just go away?
A:
Watchful waiting is always an option, but you would need to proceed with this option with extreme caution. The infection that you have now may not go away and can actually spread and infect new areas and leave you with a larger number of lesions and a more extensive area that will require treatment than you have before. You must use a barrier protection method like condoms during this time in order to ensure that you are minimizing the chances of spreading the infection to a current and/or future partner(s).

Q: Don’t many cases of genital warts go away on their own?
A:
Although many genital warts will spontaneously resolve, they may not all go away and you will continue to be infected and present a risk of infecting anybody with whom you have sexual contact.

Q: What is the cause of recurrences of HPV?
A:
Different people have different levels of resistance or immunity to HPV infections. Many people have been observed to develop an increased number of recurrences of HPV during periods of emotional or physical stress.

Q: Do men or women get more frequent recurrences of genital warts?
A:
Men get more frequent recurrences of genital warts. Men have less of an immunity to HPV than women. The incidence of genital warts actually goes down as they grow older, indicating that women have developed an immunity to the virus. The incidence of genital warts in men remains constant as they grow older.

Q: Why do men have less of an immunity to HPV than women?
A:
Antibodies against HPV are more readily formed after exposure to mucous membranes, as occurs on the vagina, cervix, anal, rectal and in the oropharyngeal area. Antibodies do not form as readily in areas of skin like on the penis and pubic area.

Q: Is there a cure for HPV?
A:
There is no cure for HPV. Once a person has the infection they always have the chance of getting a recurrence, but with appropriate follow up visits and watchful surveillance the condition can be kept under control.

Q: What is the point of treatment?
A:
HPV can be successfully managed so that the chances of it returning, progressing or spreading it to a partner are minimized. HPV is a totally containable condition.
