Ratings for Dr. Hagen Klieb
I think I will be forever floored as to how people choose to rate doctors on this website. Honestly, take some ratings with a grain of salt. I only needed to talk to Dr. Klieb for less than 30 seconds to realize how smart he is. How there are any 1 star knowledge ratings here is not something I think I will ever quite understand. I had a referral to an ENT about the same time I had my referral to Dr. K for the same issue and I kept both appointments, the ENT being after the Dr. K appointment and even that doctor asked me why I needed a second opinion after finding out that I had already had the previous appointment with Mr. Klieb. The second doctor about Dr. K -- "He's a smart guy and has taught me a lot of things as well, I'm sure I am going to say the same things to you that he already did". And that's exactly what happened.
I was a patient of Dr Kleib a few years ago, He failed me in every way. Misdiagnosed pain i was having, lost a tooth that was having pain when didn't need to be extracted, as was trigeminal nerve pain which he finally diagnosed , a kind of nerve damage which had nothing to do with lost tooth and said pain would be there for rest of my days and not only is that true but i lost a tooth when all i had were 24after orthodontics and wisdom tooth extraction and now have 23, which has ruined my biting surface, now undergoing extensive orthodontics in an attempt to correct, This Dr has never reached out to follow up and see how i am even coping,
Dr.Klieb is not only an excellent pathologist but just as amazing of a human being. He is honestly such a humble guy and really knows how to put a smile on anyone’s face. He is also extremely hard working. Oh and, he’s so funny too. Keep up the good work, Dr. Klieb.
I saw him at sunny Brooke for Jaw dislocation(TMJ) that I had developed weeks back . Firstly he arrived half an hour late for an appointment that was twice cancelled and rescheduled. I was given a bill of 450$ which is not very unusual for a specialist . But ; we were shocked with the bill, as on the phone ,i was clearly told that consultancy will be covered by OHIP and not XRay. The staff told me he has done 45 min assessment and not just a consultancy and charges are 450 . Firstly it wasn’t 45 mins but 25-30 mins that too after half an hour wait and secondly I should hv been told that assessment is being done and will cost so much . My first appointment was scheduled on 12 th April with Dr Kleib and I was told no fee but I have to pay 80$ only for XRAy if doctor says so . Then why after rescheduling after 2 weeks the charges were 450 on pretext of doing assessment without informing the patient ? I am not questioning his manners or knowledge but this is too much for a patient to pay without being informed . We are out of insurance and I feel bad for my husband ( single income ) who had to pay so much . Please inform your patients before doing assessment and inform staff accordingly. This isn’t fair .
The doctor is knowledgeable and his bedside manners are good but it was clearly a confusion between staff and doctor . I have been told the error will be resolved soon.

His confidence and competence set me at ease and alleviated my anxiety. He was extremely professional, personable, and respectful and I would recommend him to anyone struggling to understand what is going on with their mouth. He gave me choice and explained the pros and cons of each choice. He took as long as I needed to feel comfortable and confident and I trust him. Can't ask for much more.
Nice staff all around, but not much more to say about this doctor in a positive light. He comes across as a young hotshot eager to assign blame to the patient more than discuss pertinent issues. Very disappointed after the cost and the wait with this practitioner. Dr. Klieb, if you don't have answers just be honest instead of spending time belittling/labeling patients and practicing "doctor punishment" with extended wait times for follow-ups. It serves no one.
