Robert Klein, DO

I was born in the northwest corner of Iowa in Sioux Center in 1957. While being raised on a farm near there, I graduated from Sioux Center Christian school in 1971 and from Unity Christian High in Orange City in 1975. I was a biology major and graduated from Dordt College in my hometown in 1979. Graduation from Des Moines University, College of Osteopathic Medicine and Surgery, with the medical degree, Doctor of Osteopathy (DO) was in 1983. I completed my rotating internship in Davenport Osteopathic Hospital in Davenport, Iowa in 1984. I maintained a full family practice in Grundy Center and Wellsburg, Iowa, for two years and also until 1989, north of Spokane, Washington, in the town of Deer Park. These first two practice locations involved seeing patients in the clinic, assisting in surgery, hospital rounds, delivering babies, covering the emergency room, house calls, nursing home rounds, county medical examiner duties, etc. Then I practiced at the OMT Department of Eastmoreland Hospital in Portland, Oregon, until moving back to Iowa in the fall of 1992. Starting then, I have had an office only practice and no longer work in hospitals at all. I continue doing only OMT in Iowa like I did in Oregon, and maintain my licenses to practice in both states. Over the years, my practice techniques slowly evolved from the more forceful to the very gentle. This was because the more gentle techniques seemed to be more effective and actually helped people improve more rapidly and more thoroughly.
