  • "Dr. Kline was very comforting and reassuring. He was extremely patient, which is rare for doctors who seem to keep super-human schedules. He was very detailed in explaining the procedure, what to expect, and the possible outcomes. I felt very respected. He answered all of my questions, and my wife and I felt very informed, which is comforting. Because of the excellent care that I received from Dr. Kline, and the adjustments that I have made to my diet, I'm doing so much better. In my opinion, he is a credit not only to Lakeland Health, but the medical profession as a whole.""My operation was performed without a hitch. I found out later that Dr. Kline had to perform a similar surgery at the same time as my own. Both of our lives were saved due to his willingness to operate and the abilities given to him by God. You have not only saved my life, you have collectively given me a whole new quality of life.""My doctor, Dr. Craig Kline, was not only knowledgeable, but he was humble and down to earth. He explained everything I asked him at my level. He did a good job. I came out of the surgery room and he drew a picture and explained everything so well to my family. He knew what he was doing. I was very, very impressed with him."
