Dr. Kline performed a surgery on me after I had radiation & Chemo therapy. Other then being knowledgeable and skillful she was also a great source of encouragement to my family and I. From pre-surgery to post-surgery she was always helpful and informative. I did a lot of research prior to choosing Dr. Kline and she lived up to all my expectations as a surgeon however, it was her heart and attitude that brings me to my conclusion that she is a great surgeon.
