Biography & Education


Dr. Klein enjoys taking care of the whole patient — from children and teenagers to seniors and families and everyone in between. She finds her role as a faculty physician in a teaching clinic rewarding.


“I try to encourage my patients to be as healthy as possible, and I encourage our teaching resident physicians to be the best doctors they can be,” she says.


The loss of her father to diabetes when she was 18 had a profound effect on Dr. Klein. It prompted her to pursue family medicine so she could treat and help prevent diabetes.


In her practice, she emphasizes a healthy diet and daily exercise. “I like thinking about complex medical issues and diagnostic challenges,” she says. “I especially enjoy treating patients with depression and seeing them improve with treatment. I care very much for my patients. I have been seeing some of them for more than 20 years.”

Dr. Klein earned her medical degree from University of Southern California and completed her internship and residency at Santa Monica Hospital. She also holds a master’s degree in medical education from USC.

Dr. Klein grew up on a farm in central California. When she’s not working, she enjoys playing piano, baking, reading, walking half marathons with friends, traveling and photography. She also enjoys hiking with her husband and spending time with their two adult sons. In 2014, she volunteered with Medical Teams International in Niger, Africa.

About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

Excellent Doctor Elizabeth and only good words to say and excellent assistants
Providence Health & Services Patient

I have never had such excellent care as I have received from Dr. Klein. She used to be my dr. until my company changed insurance plans and helped me so much through health issues. I think the world of her and am so glad that I can see her as my dr. once more. I'm in excellent hands and I know it.

Providence Health & Services Patient

Doctor Klein has been my primary care doctor for a million years. She is not a good doctor but a great doctor. I'd rate her the best care provider in the world, not country but world.
