Our Virginia B. Andes Volunteer Community Clinic family is feeling great sadness and heartbreak over the unexpected loss of dear Dr. David Klein on August 27, 2023, our Co-Founder and past Medical Director.
We shall be forever grateful for his dedication, passion and steadfast commitment to our mission since opening our clinic in 2008.
His passing truly seems surreal. We are at a painful loss for words as we write to describe this amazing man.
Dr. Klein was a true physicians’ servant of service for our clinic and with many non-profit organizations throughout our Charlotte Community.
He will be with us always, as we continue to serve and heal those most in need … the uninsured.
Sending much comfort, love and peace to the Klein family during this difficult time of loss.
Rest In Peace Forevermore Dr. David Klein
