He was born in New York City and attended Columbia University. Before finishing medical school at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine he was a post graduate student in Investigative Medicine at Cambridge University.

In 2010 Dr. Klein joined the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and Rehabilitation and in 2013 began the first Bone Health clinic in the Houston area devoted to the identification of the causes of fragility fractures and their treatment and prevention with the aim not only of preventing repeat fractures but also attempting to prevent a first fracture in patients considered to be at risk.

Why do some providers have no ratings?
At UTMB, a provider's ratings are only posted when she/he has a minimum of 30 completed surveys within the past twelve months. New-to-UTMB providers or individuals in less common areas of practice may be temporarily under this threshold. We set this baseline to ensure we offer the most accurate reflection of each Individual.
