As the days and weeks pass, and as you return to life's routine, may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends.
Dear Kline Family,
Dr. Kline was my doctor for the past 23 years, he was simply the best Doctor I've ever know Dr. Kline was a man of integrity, compassion and love for his family a man with a great soul. My prayers go out to you the entire Kline Family he truly will be missed but know he will always be appreciated by so many of his patients.
Dear Kline Family,
I am so saddened to hear about Dr.Kline's passing. He was a very special doctor. He delivered both by children into the world, and was such a kind, warm and funny man. My condolences to the family, he spoke about you to me very often. Peace be with you, he will be missed.
Dear Kline Family, I'm deeply sorry for your loss. And although he was just my physician..he was more than that. I havent been able to see another physician. Dr. Kline was kind, and funny ..he was just awesome. Your husband and father is truly missed.
My heart and prayers are with you.
Although I cannot respond to each of you, it is just too hard on me, I want you to know how much I cherish your memories of my dearest David. Thank you for taking the time to write on this guest book and posting pictures. (I love seeing them.) Even when he was with me I realized how fortunate I was to have him my life. He was an amazing person, and a fantastic husband. He loved and cared deeply about our family and his patients (most of the time not in that order). Truthfully, as someone said his patients came first, but his family never came second.
Thank you again so much for sharing your thoughts and memories of my David.
Dear Mrs. Kline, daughter and son,
My deepest condolences on the passing of your husband and father. When I heard of his passing, I was deeply saddened and felt the loss of the most caring physician and person I know. Dr. Kline saved my life after I gave birth to my second child. I will never forget him because he was a superior physician who brought all three of my children into this world. He spoke about his family with such pride and love that I feel like I know a little bit about each of you.May God Bless him and all of you and may the memories you have of him provide you great comfort.
I learned about David's passing just recently. I met him 24 years ago when he saved my friend's life. Subsequently I had the pleasure of working with him.
David was always kind and honest. He remembered everthing we talked about and shared his thoughts and concerns freely. He was a very special man.
My condolences and prayers are with you. I will miss and always remember him.

I am thinking of you and your family this time of the year. I pray for your wife and children. We miss you more than any words could express. Without doubt this was a year of extreme tragic loss and grief...until we meet again we shall continue to miss you. Rest in peace our dear Dr Kline
To The Kline Family: I has been over one year since the passing of your dear husband/father, and I still have not had the desire to see another physician. I trusted Dr. Kline and liked him well enough to send my daughter to him. I will surely miss his humor, kind words and ability to make me feel at east while being his patient. I am sorry for your loss, and mine as well. In reading over the other entries, I know his other patients truly miss him also.
Have been thinking of you and your family for the past two weeks... SuperBowl and all. Just wanted you to know that although we can't see Dr. Kline anymore, he and you are still with us.
Dear Mrs. Klein and family,
I just heard today of David's death, and I want to let you know that I share your sadness. I also want to share my very deepest thanks, as your wonderful husband and father made the last 24 years of my life possible. When I was brought to Cedars Sinai in February of 1989, David performed an emergency surgery that saved my life and returned me to my husband and my then 3-year-old daughter. I remember his compassion when he visited me the day after the surgery, and I know that his skill and caring gave me the incredible gifts that I experience every day. I will always be grateful.
May your hearts be comforted, and may blessings surround you.
With loving thoughts, Karen
I went to Dr. Kline on the advice of my sister. All 3 of her kids came into this world with the assistance of Dr. Kline. What a nice man. I was not ready for children at that time but I can see why my sister put her complete trust in this person. He was Funny sweet quiet and gentle. What a loss. xoxo Vanessa
I attended Tulane University School of Medicine with David and only recently learned of his passing. I am most saddened and wish to express my deepest condolences. David was innately one of the best physicians I have ever had the pleasure of knowing and one of the funniest guys I have ever known, as well. He had many unforgettable stories to tell during our training years and I will never forget him. He was a most wonderful classmate and I mourn his passing.
I was shocked and saddened to hear of the news of Dr. Kline's passing. He was the best Doctor I had ever had. Always asking to see pictures of my twins and talking about his kids, he was kind and a pleasure to talk to.
He will be missed by so many. His family is in our thoughts and prayers.
I was so incredibly shocked and sad to find today that Dr. Kline has passed away. I moved from southern CA 12 years ago but continued to travel back to receive care from Dr. Kline for a few years after my move. I called the office number today to try to book an appointment to find this information online. To Mrs. Kline and family, I am so very sorry for your loss and will keep you all in my prayers. Your husband and father was an angel on this earth and was the best doctor hands down I have and will ever have the pleasure of knowing. I have never known a physician who genuinely cared the way Dr. Kline did yet in such a professional manner. He always had time for his patients and never seemed rushed. He was never too busy to answer a question or return a call and his warmth, genuine concern, love for his profession and love for his family were evident in everything he did. I remember him speaking about his children and how proud he was of them. I would list him as one of my all time favorite people and we are all better people for having known him. May his memory and the example he set give you comfort and live on in your hearts forever.
To Mrs Kline ,Katelyn and Scott, you father was the most wonderful doctor I have ever had without exception. He was kind,loving,and wonderful sense of humor and so knowledgeable and professional. He delivered both our daughters Camila and Sofia and we could not have asked for a better doctor. We shared many wonderful stories of our children and how absolutely proud we were. His beautiful spirit will always be with you and all whom he cared for.
I'm so incredibly sad to hear Dr Kline passed away. He delivered both of our beautiful daughters and could not have imagined a better doctor. He truly loved his profession and we consider ourselves blessed to have known him. He is in our baby albums proudly holding our daughters . His first question to me was always a sincere how are you and then talk about how much we loved our children and our spouses. He will always be in my heart.
I'm speechless of knowing that Dr. Kline has passed away :( he was my favorite OBGYN for a long time. I have beeen away from the states for 11 years now that's why I never had the chance again to see Dr. Kline, but actually, I have been sending him xmas card to his office all these years, not knowing now that he's gone :( well, rest in peace my favorite Doctor, and you'll always be remembered always.... for the family, i pray for you all so that God will give you all strength to cope with the pain of loosing our loved one.
We offer our most sincere condolences to the Kline Family. Dr. Kline was like a member of our family too. I moved to Texas but still flew back to L.A. to have Dr. Kline take care of me. We trusted him implicitly. He was a wonderful man who treated every patient with the most sincere kindness and respect. He is missed!!!!
Jean and family -- I just read about David's passing the in the Tufts magazine. I am so sorry for your loss. David and I were very good friends during our time at Tufts and have stayed briefly in touch throughout the years. He was a wonderful person and will be missed.
I was shocked to read David's obituary in the Tufts Alumni Journal. I was Dave's roommate during our junior year at Tufts. Dave was so talented and well rounded. He loved writing for the school newspaper, playing basketball and studying. He learned things so quickly and was a tremendous friend. I recall taking a break from studying to order a pizza and watch Monday Night Football's halftime wrap up. Over the years, we had lost touch. Thanks to the internet, I was able to meet up with Dave in Feb of 2011 for dinner at Jerry's Deli in Marina Del Rey. Dave gushed over the accomplishments of his children and the love he had for his wife. I know you must be sad to not have had the chance to say good bye, but please be comforted in knowing that Dave was very proud of his children and very loving of his wife. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
Words can just not express what a wonderful doctor and human being Dr. Kline was. I have been his patient for over 15 years and the shock and sadness of his loss is just devastating. His unique individual attention to each of his patients was unmatched by any other doctor I've ever known. To the family he loved so much, please know that there are dozens of his patients who stand beside you at this time of grief. He will be deeply, deeply missed.
When Dr. Kline delivered our son, Jean Paul, on 12/13/1986 we made a lifelong connection. When it was time for our daughter, Brigette, to be borne by induced labor on 5/2/2007, we found out at the last moment that he was unavailable due to surgery. My wife, Maritza, held back our child's delivery the best she could saying. "Only Dr. Kline can deliver my baby!" True to form, he sprinted down the hospital hallway and then calmly walked in the room with the most comforting words, "So, I hear we're having a baby". 10 minutes later I held my daughter and reflected on the miracle of his professionalism. He has been and is part of family forever. We have all been blessed to have had such a genuine and caring person as David in our lives.
We wanted to let you know that we are thinking of you and praying for you in the loss of your husband. Our sympathy for your loss.
Kline family, I am so sorry to hear about the loss your dear father and husband. I'm living overseas and found out about his passing recently. I'm shocked. Dr. Kline was simply the best. I trusted him implicitly. He was honest, kind, respectful and caring. He will be missed. Sending you my deepest condolences.
While I only met you several times at births, I took away from those births a memory of a caring OB with a sense of humor, who truly wanted the best for his patients. LA is truly at a loss.
A friend told me the news on the phone today. I gasped and my 4 year old was concerned. "What happened, Mommy? Why did you make that sound?" I said, "Oh honey, I just learned that the doctor who brought you into the world died suddenly. It's very sad." Truly, my son would not be alive were it not for Dr. Kline performing an unplanned c-section with confidence and ease. I'm so grateful and will forever remember him in my heart.
Dr. Kline was one of the sweetest and warmest people I have ever known. He treated his patients with the utmost respect and he truly listened. He literally saved my life after seeing a long line of doctors that could not tell me what was wrong. My heart is crushed by his passing. He will always be in my fondest memories along with his beautiful wife and children.
Our deepest condolences to the Kline family. I can honestly say that Dr. Kline saved my life, and brought my two greatest gifts, my twin boys into this world, 10 years ago. As the world fell apart on Sept 11-12, 2001, Dr. Kline held it together for our family. I am forever grateful and so very saddened to hear of his passing. Our thoughts are with his family. Thank you for all that he gave. So many lives and such amazing care.
Dr.Kline you shall be missed. My heart is aching. You made the World A Better Place. Thank You.
My condolences to his beloved wife and children.
Rest in Peace my Friend.

I am absolutely heartsick to learn of Dr. Kline's passing. Like many of his patients, I was and always will be enormously grateful for his gentle, caring, and compassionate medical guidance, his no-nonsense approach to healthcare, and his genuine respect for his patients. He delivered both of my children, now ages 8 and 4, and was a great source of courage, wisdom, and kindness. My heart and prayers and thoughts are with your family, Dr. Kline. You're irreplaceable.
Thinking of Dr Kline today and wanted to send some Love to his family.
Annika and Rhiannon now...you delivered them both in 1999 and 2002.
I too was deeply shocked and saddened to learn of Dr. Kline's sudden and untimely death. He was my physician for 17 years. During that time, I never once doubted his judgment or the depth of his knowledge, and I always felt secure that he would guide me in the right direction. He was that rare combination of an intellectual powerhouse who was also calm, kind, and thoughtful. I always looked forward to hearing him talk about his children. His pride and love for his family was so strong - and always a joy to hear about. As I read through this guest book, it is clear that he touched so many lives. My heart goes out to his family. He will be missed.
I was so completely shocked to hear of Dr. Kline's passing. He was my doctor for the 9 years I lived in Los Angeles and he was wonderful. I was lucky enough to be present when my sister, who was also a patient, gave birth to my second niece and I watched Dr. Kline help bring her into the world. He was kind and gentle and a very special doctor. My deepest sympathies to his family. He will be missed.
I am so shocked and saddened to hear of Dr. Kline's passing. I suffer from an autoimmune disease that can make it dangerous to have children. Just recently my husband and I married and started talking about trying to conceive. I voiced my concerns to Dr. Kline and immediately he began to look into the facts behind my disease. He helped me understand the ups and downs of my condition. I had been afraid to get pregnant but knowing Dr. Kline was going to be there with me made me feel at peace with the process. I feel like I knew his family though never met them- he bragged about you all every chance he got. What a proud father and husband and a loving friend to us all. I will miss his kind face. My deep condolences to his family.
Though a patient of Dr. Kline's for just a short period of time he holds a special place in my heart as well as in our family. I loved how he would jump at any opportunity to talk about his family. I will always remember him telling me how much he missed his kids at college, how his son's visit home after his first year away was better then he could express and a road trip this summer with his daughter was a once in a lifetime opportunity. May your family find peace in this difficult time and know you are in our thoughts and prayers.
To the Kline family,
I want to give you my deepest condolences. Just like all of his other patients have shared, Dr. Kline truly stood out from all the other physicians. He truly cared for each of his patients to the fullest, called with test results, never rushed through his appointments and always talked so highly of his family. I am truly blessed to have had him as my physician & so saddened that he is no longer here with us. I believe he was a role model and the definition of a compassionate physician...something that is not seen to often.
May he rest in peace.
I am still so shocked to have learned of Dr. Kline's passing. He was my favorite doctor and I trusted him more than any doctor. He was very kind and I admired how much he loved his wife and children. I always enjoyed listening to him "brag" about his kids. He will be deeply missed.
I was a patient of Dr. Kline's for more than 15 years. He always made me feel relaxed, at ease, and I loved his laid back attitude. No one adored his family more than he did, and I always enjoyed watching his face light up when he spoke about them. And he always called me personally to deliver any test results. My heart is sad and I will truly miss him.
I'm so devastated to hear you have passed Dr. Kline. You were my first OBGYN doctor. You saw me grow up. You delivered both of my babies who are now 12 and 10. You soothed me through all of my anxiety. I have never trusted anyone else like I did you. I am sooo sad for your family whom you spoke about with such joy. I will miss you always.
I'm in shock and in such deep sadness to learn about Dr. Kline passing away. He helped me so so much in these big steps of motherhood and parenting and adulthood. Without judging, always with humor, you helped me going through life and its obstacles. You were the first OB I ever liked. You delivered my baby girl Zoe who is going to be 5 this month. You will always be remembered and will be greatly, deeply missed.
I was shocked and sad to find out my favorite doctor passed. I counted on him for everything. I remember when I was pregnant and I wanted a boy and my husband wanted a girl. I was very tired and I asked Dr. Kline if it was a girl. He laughed and said we could do the operation. I didn't understand until they both stopped and told me we were having a boy. I called him for everything especially when I was scared. I loved him and he was a great doctor and friend. He will be truly missed.
When I opened the letter yesterday I nearly fell to my knees. My husband caught me while breathless, tears slid down my cheek. I am forever grateful for having Dr. Kline and his team care for me and our babies. And will celebrate his life with so much gratitude. My most heartfelt sentiments go to his family.
We were shocked and extremely saddened to learn of Dr. Kline's passing. He delivered all three of our sons and was always attentive whenever we called or needed him. We will be forever grateful for the excellent care he provided as there was nothing more important in our lives than the healthy birth of our three boys. Our deepest condolences to Dr. Kline's family, whom he always talked about with obvious pride. We will truly miss him.

So sorry to hear today of Dr Kline's passing. Like many of you, I am saddened and my heart is broken. He was my doctor for over ten years. When I was looking for a new doctor, my best friend (Dr Kline delivered two of her three children) recommended him to me. I said to her, "I only trusted my other doctor...how can I trust this guy?" Well, it goes without saying, Dr Kline made my fears disappear immediately. And even when I was faced with a new dilemma - a kidney transplant - not only did he put me in touch with my current nephrologist whom I love dearly, but he put me in contact with his wife to calm me and diminish my fears about the surgery. And don't know if you knew this, but our doctor was close to becoming a comedian. He chose his interview for med school over being booked with a top rated talk show. I know we were so blessed that he chose to go to the med school interview. My prayers go out to the Kline family and his team...I will miss Dr Kline very much.
I am so very sorry for your loss! Dr. Kline was my only doctor who made me feel cared for. When I had a miscarriage in December he gave me a hug and I could see true sadness on his face. To K. and S. He loved sharing his pride in your school graduations. I will keep him in my prayers. May god give you all the strength you need to make it through this difficult time.
We were so sad to hear the news that Dr Kline has passed on. He delivered our first two children and he will forever be a part of our beautiful memories. I remember him giving me something to rush the second birth so that he could get to his son's bar mitzvah picture ceremony. He often talked about how proud he was of his children. My favorite memory of him was when he and my husband were sitting on a couch telling jokes to each other while I was having labor pains!
I will forever be filled with gratitudue for Dr. Kline. He unexpectedly delivered our baby girl in October. We had planned for a birth center birth but things went differently and got scary. I was transported to Cedars and Dr. Kline made me feel like I was in great hands. He held out for my desire for a natural birth and I was able to bypass a C-section. I will always remember his request that I look down to see my baby girl being birthed. He said "look here, this is something you don't see everyday". I will remember him with respect and love and send prayers to his family.
I am so sad to hear about the passing of my only Docter that I trusted with my live.My deepest condolenses to his Family .I think I know you all ,but we never met.He was the BESTallways there for me and all my friends that I send to him ,and there were many.My herat is broken .Love to all
I am saddened beyond belief by his passing. Dr. Kline was my doctor for 20 years, delivered my daughter and was never anything but kind, funny,gentle and brilliant.My heart goes out to his family that I've gotten to know over the years through his stories.He was so proud of his children.My thoughts are with you all.
Dear Kline family and staff,
Please accept my heartfelt condolences. Dr. Kline delivered both my girls, and there was just no other doctor out there like him. He was so special - almost old fashioned in the way that you felt like a person around him - he was never rushed or impersonal. He always took the time to call with test results - so thoughtful and reassuring. And boy, was he proud of his kids and what they were accomplishing. I can't imagine another doctor like him. The world lost a wonderful man. I'm so sorry for your great loss.
My sincere condolences to Dr. Kline's family, his friends, and his staff. He has been my doctor since 1994 or 1995 and was always a wonderful, remarkable man. He saved my mother's life, taking a biopsy because he just had a feeling that something was "off" (and subsequently discovering her cancer, which would have continued to grow, undiscovered, due to its location and the way that it was not appearing like it should). He was a true healer.
I always appreciated how he was willing to talk to you, and how he would always personally call. I was fortunate that I never had any problems, but I was so grateful that he would call himself to tell me of negative results (when, it seems these days, that doctors' offices neglect to even call with positive results). I was also grateful how he visited my mom in the hospital after her surgery, coming to check up on her whenever he was there (even visiting right after he delivered a baby).
But the thing I will remember most about Dr. Kline is how much he loved his family. He would talk about his daughter's violin playing and his son's hockey, and would say how much he missed them when they were away. There were always little stories throughout the years, and I could tell how proud he was.
I recently moved 250 miles away for a job -- and traveled to Los Angeles in January in part to see Dr. Kline. He was the only doctor I would go to. I will miss him.
Dr. Kline was a great doctor, but he was an even better man. I am utterly saddened to hear of his loss to this world. He made it a better place.
Dr. Kline's sudden passing is such a shock to myself and my husband. I have been a patient of Dr. Kline for almost 20 years. He is one of the most gentle and kind physicians I have ever met. I am so emotional right now, this is total shock to me. He was my favorite and only doctor that I fully trusted. He also made me laugh everytime I saw him. I can't believe he is no longer here. He was able to answer any questions I had to ask him. What an amazing doctor. He will be truly missed. I don't think I will ever find any doctor that could replace him. My deepest condolences to his family.
He was my doctor for fourteen years. He helped me through the craziness of my 20s and delivered my son two years ago. He was the best doctor I have ever had. I was the crazy girl who would call him after hours worried I had meningitis or a brain tumor and he would call me back and reassure me never angry or upset. It was clear that he loved his family so much that he treated you like he would want a doctor to treat his family. Enough said that when he called you back, he would just say Dave kline, he was humble, loving, compassionate. All the love in my heart for you all. I was blessed and honored to have him be my doctor. No one will ever be his equal.
My heart is broken. Dr. Kline was an exceptional doctor and human being. He has been my doctor for the past 13 years, and I have never seen another doctor like him. He would always take the time to sit down and ask about my family and my son, whom he brought into this world. I always tell everyone about how Dr. Kline showed up at the hospital to deliver my son even though it was Thanksgiving Day and his own birthday. I was so proud that my son shared a birthday with such an amazing doctor. His knowledge, expertise, kindness and concern for his patients was awe-inspiring. He would patiently answer any and all questions and I always left his office informed and assured. I'll never forget his phone calls to notify me that I had "got an A on the test" after my lab results! He will truly be missed. There isn't anyone that can replace him. My deepest condolences to his family.
Dear Kline Family,
My husband and I were both shocked saddened to hear of Dr. Kline's passing. I became his patient 8 years ago, when I was 11.5 weeks pregnant, at the urging of a close friend. He was a calming and caring force during an worrisome time during my pregnancy and continued to be as we struggled to grow our family. Throughout all of it, he managed to make me laugh with his wonderful dry sense of humor. He spoke at length about you his family, to the point that I feel like I know each of you personally. Dr. Kline bubbled over with each account of Scott's hockey career, Katelyn's musical achievements, and Jean's unending patience and partnership. Dr. Kline exemplified the term "great doctor", he was one in a million- one, that I and my husband and daughter, will miss a great deal. My heartfelt condolences go out to each of you during this difficult time.
To the family of Dr. Kline....no words can express the sadness I feel to hear of Dr. Kline's passing. He was one of the most amazing human beings and knowledgable doctors I ever knew. While nothing can take the sorrow and pain you feel right now, may you find comfort in knowing that Dr. Kline touched so many of our lives and his memory will remain in our minds and hearts forever. He will be missed dearly.
I have been a patient of David's for 16 years and I literally owe him my life. I am shocked and saddened at his passing. He was more than a doctor. He was a friend. I've never experienced anyone who cared so much for his patients. My heart goes out to his family.
To Doctor Klines Family and staff...I am so sorry for your loss. I know that Dr. Klines kindness, warmth, love and generosity couldn't have just been something he saved for his patients but something that was fostered and driven by the love he had for his wife and children and then extended to us his patients. Personally I am in a state of shock and grief. I will miss him, his calm and always comforting ways. No matter what you threw on the table at him he always made you laugh. He was my everything doctor for the past 14 years and I loved him dearly. He took care of me and delivered my two precious girls and saved my best friends life...I could never thank him enough. My heart and prayers are with his family. The sun shines a little less brightly for us today.
To the family of Dr. Kline, I have known him for over 22 years. He was a wonderful friend and doctor. I'm from Wisconsin and we shared the love of the Green Bay Packers...I gave him a Championship Teeshirt last year when I saw him. He will be missed. (Sally Miller Los Angeles, CA)
To the Kline Family: My heart is absolutely broken over the passing of Dr. Kline. He truly was the kind of doctor you dream about. I will miss him dearly and my thoughts and prayers and heartfelt condolences go out to his family, because if I feel the way I do, I can't imagine his absence in your lives. My best always
I am shocked and saddened by the news of Dr. Kline's passing. The weepiness just keeps happening! Having been his patient for over 20 years, I share everyone's sentiment and knowledge of what a funny, kind, professional, gentle, calming, and caring doctor he was and especially what a devoted husband and father he was. The only thing that made the humility of six-month check-ups bearable was knowing that there would be a lovely story about how his family was doing and what Katelyn and Scotty were up to. I so looked forward to those updates! Although I had the honor (not!) of being the first patient whose baby's birth he missed (due to an out-of-town wedding that he was in), he took amazing care of me during my pregnancy with my second son, Elliot, who is now almost 19. Dr. Kline, you will be so incredibly missed by all who knew you, and my heart, thoughts, and prayers go out to you, Jean, and your beautiful children. Very sincerely,
I'm so sad that dear Dr. Kline has passed. My daughter is 12 years and three months old, and I have known Dr. Kline for 12 years, three months and one week when the midwives at the birthing center decided that my baby had a problem, and he was their supervising obstetrician. I'm so grateful for those few decelerations (which never occurred again) because Dr. Kline has been wonderful. We knew he was the guy for us when we learned that he had put himself through med school as a stand up comedian. He listened and made sure I had the completely natural birth that I wanted.
He was so very proud of his kids, and loved relating what they were up to over the years. He was always so delighted to spend time with them. He was a wonderful, caring physician and a calm, reassuring presence with the couple of problems I have had.
But most of all he was just a sweet, sweet person. He will surely be missed by everyone who knew him. My heart goes out to his family and friends.
To the family of David A. Kline, M.D.: I am sorry for your loss. He will be missed. As a doctor, he was very professional, knowledgable, and patient. As a person, he was funny, kind, and honest. And, I was lucky to be one of his patients.
I was beyond shocked and so saddened to hear of Dr. Kline's passing. He will always be in my heart for being such a truly warm and caring doctor. My husband and I chose Dr. Kline to deliver our third child, our daughter. His presence was reassuring and calm. My thoughts and prayers are with his family during this time. I remember so well how with such love, humor and gratitude he spoke of his wife and children. Peace to them and blessings to dear Dr. Kline.
He was a wonderful man. He helped me and my family in so many ways.
He was always willing to go above and beyond the call of duty for us.
We may not be where we are now without his genuine concern for us.
He was a very special man. Our thoughts are with his family who he talked about with a gleam in his eyes. The Mandel Family, Toluca Lake
I'm writing in tears. Dr. Kline was the most patient, warm, supportive, professional doctor I have ever know. I had my third baby with him and wished I could have had the other two with him, as well. He glowed as he talked about his family and I remember thinking every time I went into that office that I hoped I could create the love and bond with my family like he had with his. He was inspirational. He was a bright and caring light and I am so lucky and blessed to have had him as my doctor. Thank you, David! Peace and Love, Julie Zeff
I am shocked and saddened by Dr. Kline's passing. He delivered both my darling girls and was a rock of wisdom and strength during both pregnancies. He always spoke lovingly of his wife and children, and our heartfelt sympathy goes to his family. Kate Lehrman. Pacific Palisades
I am saddened by the loss of Dr Kline. He was an amazing human being and an excellent doctor. I don't think I'll ever find another Dr kline ever. He will be greatly missed by all. He always spoke so highly of his kids and family. He was so devoted to his family and so proud of them. I am so sorry for your loss. I will always remember him.
To the Kline family there are no words to express my deep sadness with the news that my favorite doctor whom I have been with for 20 years has passed on.I had just been in his office on January 27th for an exam and we were talking about his kids and he spoke about how much he missed seeing his son Scott(scotty as he would say) everyday. He delivered my twin boys and was there to support me as a friend and as a wonderful doctor.
You will be missed but I know you are an angel in heaven just as you were an angel here on earth.
Peace and Bleassing
My heart has just broken into a million pieces upon hearing the news of David. I have known David for over 25 years. We worked in the same building for quite some time. He was a friend and a wonderful OB/GYN and delivered all three of my children.
Each visit we would share stories of our children. Both of us would choke up. He had such love and compassion for his family. I will miss him deeply. No one can ever replace him.
Jean, Katelyn & Scott words can not express how sad and how sorry I feel for the family. My deepest sympathy.
To the Kline Family
I just opened up an envelope from the office thinking it was a reminder to make an appointment. I almost fell to the ground as I began to read the letter. I feel like I have lost a loved one. 6 years ago Dr Kline delivered my beautiful healthy boy and My admiration, respect and love for Dr Kline grew even more. The funny, honest and loving man who would speak so highly about his daughters violin and his sons hockey games will stay with me forever. dr Kline knew how to make me feel comfortable and I am not sure how I can go into that office without him there. My deepest condolences to his very special family and know that so many people loved him and will miss him. We will pray for you and I hope that God gives you strength to get through this very very difficult time. All our love
To the Kline family my heart is very saddened with the news of Dr.Kline passing.Dr Kline had such a beautiful human soul. I can not think of any one person that could have ever been put on this earth to take such good care of us. I will miss you with all my soul. God Bless.
I last saw Dr Kline on January 25th. Had been a patient for more than 10 years. We used to joke about his days as a stand up comedian. I'd call him "Schecky" Kline. He was kind and compassionate and always reassuring. I was shocked and stunned to get a letter today informing me of his passing. I was overcome with grief. I truly will miss him. My heartfelt condolences to his wife Jean and his children, He was so proud of his kids. Talked about them all the time My prayers and sympathy go to his family. Dr Kline was a wonderful doctor and an exceptional man.
I am so shocked and do sorry to hear of Dr. Kline's passing he was loved beyond words. I have been his patient for over 20 years. All my blessing with the family.
I just received the terrible news in the mail of Dr. Kline's passing. My husband and I were shocked to hear and we will honestly miss him terribly. He was not only a caring, understanding, present, and calming doctor but he was also clearly a true family man who loved his wife and children. He beamed when he spoke of them. He took excellent care of me and I will forever be grateful for having been his patient. I wish the best to his family and my thoughts are with you all.
Dear Dr. Kline's Family,
My family and I are so sorry for your loss. Dr. Kline was the kindest, sweetest, most dedicated doctor that I have ever met. He was so caring and it was always a joy to see him as he used to crack jokes. Dr. Kline and my husband got along great as they talked about hockey. I had some medical issues that I was worry about while I was pregnant, but Dr. Kline told me that everything would be fine and everything was. Dr. Kline will always be cherished in our hearts! He will be remembered forever, as I watch my 2 year old son grow up.
Wishing your family strength through this difficult time!
With lots of love,
The Geczy Family
I am shocked and so sorry to hear that Dr. Kline has passed away. I was planning to call for an appointment with the man who had been my only MD for more than 20 years. He was always focused and considerate, and knew how to put a patient at ease. My heartfelt condolences to his family.
Dear Kline Family,
We just heard the news of your loss, and we feel so over whelmed with sadness. Dr Kline was someone who will forever be remembered and cherished by our family. He was the kindest, most patient and dedicated doctor we have ever meant. Not only was he a lovely doctor but a wonderful and gentle man. He talked so warmly and fondly of his family on the many occassions we sat with him in his office. He glowed every time he told stories of his children. For a few years my husband and I struggled to get pregnant. But, Dr. Kline never made us feel unwarranted in our concerns. He encouraged us, explored new options with us and never gave up on us. His dedication and commitment were the reason we were so fortunate to welcome our twin babies in 2009. He is a man that will forever carry on and be part of our family for years and years to come. We are so lucky to have meant such an amazing man like Dr. Kline. He will be greatly missed by us dearly. We wish your family strength and warmth durring this difficult time of loss.
With much love,
The Coulehan Family
I was so sorry to hear about Dr. Kline's passing. All I can think about is how sweet he was and how he would light up when he was talking about his kids -- and hockey! He was such a steady, calm presence despite the craziness of pregnancy! To his family, I hope you can hold onto that sense of calm in this difficult time.
My prayers go out to Dr Kline and his family, he was my favorite doctor, always calm, always helpful. He absolutely loved his family and was very proud of his kids and what they have accomplished. I will miss him dearly. He removed my fibroids in 2004 and i made that experience so easy for me.
I was shocked and deeply saddened to hear today of Dr. Kline's passing. I have never had a doctor as kind and considerate as Dr. Kline, and I doubt I ever will again. I feel lucky to have been his patient for the past 18 years and will miss him dearly.
Words cannot express the gratitude I feel for Dr. Kline. From a very young, first time mother pregnant with twins to two more pregnancies, countless office visits, and 14 years later he always set my mind at ease while giving me the very best care I could ask for. He is absolutely irreplaceable and will be missed immensely.
My husband and I are so saddened to hear of Dr. Kline's passing. In November he delivered our twins in an emergency c-section. He saved all 3 of our lives and we will forever be grateful. He had such a calm compassionate spirit and helped rationally guide us through really tough situations.
Dr. Kline would always tell us how proud he was of his son and daughter. He told us there's nothing in the world like the joy of watching your children grow up. I'm so blessed he helped bring my babies into the world...just so sad he was leaving just as they were coming.
Much warmth and support to his family. Your husband/Dad was a great man and will not be forgotten.
Thinking of you Dr Kline sending light and love to your family!
I didn't know Dr. Kline for very long as he became my doctor during the last few months of my pregnancy. I am forever grateful to him for allowing my daughter Kaylyn to be born on the day she was ready to meet all of us. He told me, "I guess we're having a baby today!" And he reminded me in the operating room, "Your life is about to change." I will forever remember him as a gentle soul, being the first to touch my little girl and welcoming her into the world. (and for reminding daddy to get the camera ready) I am glad he got to see Kaylyn again on one of my post-natal visits. He said his children were living on their own now and that it is hard to have them gone. He mentioned his son was home during a school break and enjoyed their time together. God has blessed our family and many others through the caring heart and hands of Dr. Kline.
I am shocked and saddened by this loss. My heart goes out to Dr. Kline's family, friends and staff. He delivered my one and only baby in 2002 and has always been so kind, supportive and attentive. We will miss him dearly.
My heart goes out to Dr. Kline's family and his staff during this difficult time. I feel so fortunate to have had him as my doctor for the past 9 years. He will be missed.
I am heartbroken about the passing of Dr. Kline. He was so bright and so very kind. My prayers go out to his family and to his staff.
My heart goes out to the family of Dr Kline. He was a wonderful doctor and coworker that I admired and loved to work with. He was a team player and compassionate to everyone around him. I am so sorry and sad to hear of his loss. He touched the lives of so many and will not be forgotten. Amanda- LA
Dear Kline family & staff, i was so sad to hear the news. I have been going to him for the last 15 years and i can't imagine having a kinder, more caring doctor to depend on. His manner, even when i called after hours with nervous questions, always immediately put me at ease... and he LOVED talking about his family. I'm a huge hockey fan so we would talk about that a lot and he would tell me stories about his son playing...he was always so proud.
he will be very missed. my deepest sympathy.
Dear Kline family,
We wanted to share our condolences...he was a truly a wonderful doctor, caring person, and most important of all, a trustworthy person. He delivered our first child and we have wonderful memories of him. Rest in peace.
Dear Kline family, please accept our heartfelt condolences. Dr. Kline delivered both of our children into this world, and we felt so blessed to have this, the most important time in our lives in his wonderfully capable hands. As well as being such a fine Doctor, he calmed both my wife and I with his zen like balance and sense of humor...he made it seem so easy we opted to have two! God bless you David! God bless you Kline family!
Love and peace,
Rick, Lori, Charlotte and Joseph Peters.
Dear Jean, Katelyn and Scott,
I was so sad to hear about David's death. He was a wonderful and dear man, and I know how much he loved all of you. I remember all of the times he came to wait for the kids in the carpool line in his scrubs (he even took a snooze or two while waiting), and he always spoke so highly of all of you. May his memory be for a blessing.
Lots of love,
Laura Bramson Hyman and family
As a patient of Dr Kline's for more than 14 years, he was the BEST doctor I have ever had. He delivered my daughter in 2003, and dealt with my many health issues surrounding my pregnancy and her delivery. He was patient, kind, funny, thoughtful and had incredible expertise in the field of obstetrics and gynecology. I am devastated and shocked that this happened to such a wonderful man who adored his family and his patients. He will be sorely missed.
Dr. Kline you will be FOREVER missed by me and my family. Over the 15 years I was your patient, you always gave me such great advice and you were the best doctor I have EVER had - thank you!! The stories you always shared about your family were always entertaining (you knew how to bring a laugh to my day - I guess that was always the comedian in you) I know your wife and kids were happy and felt lucky to have you in their lives and I know you felt so lucky to have them.
Devastated and heartbroken are we. Dr Kline you were the kindest soul with a heart of gold. You simply adored and treasured your family. It was an honor and priviledge for Dr Kline to deliver my three sons, walk this journey with me, and get to know one of the most extraordinary human beings I have ever encountered in my life time. There are no words to express the sorrow and condolences to the Kline family. I am so sorry. You were blessed beyond all measures. Thank you for all the lives you touched and the beacon of light that you were for all that you encountered. This life is but a vapor and though we are in this world we are not of this world. We shall meet you again in Paradise. I will never forget you and I will miss you. The world knows little of its greatest heroes...
Dear Kline Family & Staff, we only knew Dr. Kline for a few months, but instantly loved his kind, caring, non-judgemental demeanor. We threw him a lot of crazy, first time, nervous parents-to-be questions and he calmly and clearly answered every one of them -- not once making us feel dopey for asking. He seemed like a really good guy, and a great father and husband. He LOVED talking about his family - especially his children. We are so sorry for your loss and hope that you can find some comfort in the beautiful memories you all must have of this wonderful doctor and really cool guy.
Dr Kline was the type of doctor that you come across once in a lifetime. We were patients of his for only a couple of months, but in that short time his incredible expertise, compassion, and humor made a huge impression on us. He was such a proud father and talked about his children with such love and adoration. He was going to deliver our twins in June, and we are so sad that he wont be there with us. Our deepest sympathy goes out to his family and staff during this time.
Dr. Kline was such a wonderful and caring person. He delivered our daughter Carmindy in 2010 and was going to deliver our son this May, he will surely be missed. My husband and I were both so saddened to learn of his passing. We will miss joking with him about politics. To the family, Dr. Kline spoke often of you with pride and love, He was an example to us all, we are so sorry for your loss.
The birthing community suffered a tremendous loss. Dr. David Kline was greatly loved and admired and will be missed. Thank you, Dr. Kline, for all of the wonderful births you helped facilitate. Rest in peace.
I was referred to Dr. Kine in 1996 when I moved to LA. He was always the only doctor I needed. After I got married, he delivered my two children. And even after that, he was the only doctor I ever needed. Patient, caring, and so proud of his family - he is the kind of doctor that is rare to find - one that personally called with every test result. Always there in time of need. Available 100% - even while constantly delivering babies. My condolences to his family whom he always spoke of and to his staff. - Hilary Worchell
Dr. Kline delivered both of my children. He was my doctor for 5 years. He was incredibly supportive, easy to be around, and just an amazing doctor. I am so sad for his family. May he rest in peace..
Jean, Katelyn and Scott, words cannot express our shock and grief. Please know that you are in our daily prayers. We know how much he loved you all. He will be sorely missed.
I was a patient of Dr. Kline for more than 20 years. My thoughts
and prayers go out to his family and staff during this very difficult
time. He was always caring, patient and calm. I will miss him
I am heartbroken. The only doctor I've ever had or needed was Dr. Kline. He delivered both my children and was beyond wonderful. I never knew how he managed to look after so many of us and still be such a devoted husband and father. As my children grew over the years, he and I would always talk about how fast it all goes. He spoke so openly of his love for his family and my heart goes out to them. He was beloved by everyone. Indeed, it all went by too fast...
My condolences to Dr. Kline's family and staff. I have been a patient of his for the past 18 years. Dr. Kline was the doctor you search for all your life. He was compassionate, understanding, caring, and kind. He was always there when needed and always returned calls. He talked about his family so proudly with the brightest face. I feel blessed to have had such a great person and Doctor in my life. He should be an example for all to follow. There will never be another Dr. David Kline. He will be greatly missed by so many.
May God grant comfort to Dr Kline's family. I thank him for having delivered my grandson, Alexander Eli Neuman. He is missed by so many.
Mrs Kline, Katelyn, Scott and Staff;
words cannot express my sorrow. I was his patient for over 22 years. Dr Kline was a compassionate, caring, with integrity man. He would light up every time we talked about his family and his children's accomplishment. His Loss is a shock and he will be missed greatly in our community. There never will be another Dr.Kline.
I also, would like to express my condolences to his Staff especially Angie, who has been by his side as long as I can remember....
My heart goes out to the family. I can find another doctor. I will not find another David Kline. He got me through a health scare, miscarriages and fertility issues, and was so supportive ... David was my doctor and a support for more than 20 years, and I am doubly grateful. His loss leaves a very big void; all of us he helped make for a wonderful legacy.
I was a patient of Dr. Kleins for the past two years. He was by far the most patient, caring and compassionte OBGYN I have ever had. He was there for me during my threatened miscarriage and gave me confidence that everything would be alright.
Dr. Klein always spoke so lovingly about his wife and children.
My thoughts and prayers are with you. If there is any comfort during this difficult time please know how much he was appreciated by his patients.
Kline family and staff --
We were so very saddened to hear of the tragic news of Dr. Kline. He brought our little girl into this world a year ago, and he took such amazing care of us! He will always be a very special part of the best moment of my life. I am heart broken to think of him not being at our next birth. Dr. Kline was the best; So very knowledgeable, kind, and caring. He's the kind of doctor you search a lifetime for. He was also one of the proudest fathers I have ever met. Every time I was in his office, without fail, he told a story about his wife/children. It was clear his family was the world to him. I grieve for them during this time. Many hugs and prayers for the family and staff.
To the Kline Family,
We are so sorry for your loss. Carmel was a patient for almost 15 years...He helped us through so much...The successful birth of Julian almost 14 years ago...and a not so successful birth. So compassionate, full of integrity, personal responsibility to his patients (even driving Carmel personally to the emergency room once.Stopped his day to help her out) and funny, so funny and ...well, we are better off for having him in our life
To the Kline family & staff - Tomorrow will be my son Luke's 3rd birthday. Dr. Kline took great care of me and my 2nd child as only a devoted family man and physician can. I am so shocked and saddened. When my son blows out his candles tomorrow, my wish will be that all of you will soothe the pain with all of the memories of his devotion and the images of all of the children that he helped to bring into this world. That is an amazing legacy. The Brunelle family
Dr. Kline was an incredible doctor and family man. He was there for me on the most special day of my life when he delivered my son in July 2010. Now I am 37 weeks pregnant and can't imagine not having him there in the delivery room.
My thoughts and prayers go out to his family. He always spoke of his family with great love.
Dear Mrs. Kline, Family, and Staff of Dr. Kline,
My husband and I are so incredibly sad for your loss. Dr. Kline was such a kind and caring person and he and his whole team always made us feel welcome and loved and very well cared for. How do you ever give enough thanks to the man and team that brought your children into this world. There are no words. Mrs. Kline, Katelyn, Scott, his respect and love for you all was so obvious.
