Video Interviews:


The interest in Dr. Klein and his books has been met by many of his fans, patients and colleagues with enthusiasm.


Dr. Richard S. Klein from Westfair Online on Vimeo.

Health care has taken center stage of late with no shortage of deliberation, speculation and consternation – from lawmakers on Capitol Hill to taxpayers on Main Street, from board rooms to barrooms, and everywhere in between.

Reform? Restore? Ignore? Whatever your view, it doesn’t appear we’ll see any resolution before the new year.

In the meantime, life goes on in the medical world. Death does too. But one local doctor says there are far too many deaths each year – which he attributes to medical mishaps and a flawed health care system. And he is urging the medical field to “police” itself to help change things.

The Business Journal checked in with Dr. Richard S. Klein, a practicing physician in Yorktown, N.Y., who specializes in internal medicine and infectious diseases. Klein is also an associate professor of medicine who teaches at New York Medical College.

Dr. Klein gives a candid view of his book. Catch up with Dr. Klein's in his latest interview. It is a great chance to hear him speak from the heart about what inspired his book and how he hopes to change the relationship between doctor and patient.

"The book is a roadmap to a healthier life, helping to empower the patient.", Dr. Klein
