He is the best doctor in Austin. There are only 2 options in Austin area for Colorectal and I went to the other doctor due to the ease in appointment and realized the mistake when I went and had to find Dr. Cline whom I had difficulty getting appointment but once I met him it was worth the wait as he is very good and very knowledgable

austin, tx – Dec 09, 2017
I had a radical colectomy with J pouch performed by Dr. Cline in February of 2004 due to a long history of ulcerative colitis. Dr. Cline explained all my options, the risks and the benefits of the procedure. My quality of life has been excellent ever since and I thank him for giving my life back to me. He is an excellent surgeon, compassionate and always takes time to make sure his patients are well informed.
