Dr. Jeffrey J Kline has the following 3 specialties
A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.
- Pediatric Gastroenterology
Pediatric gastroenterologists can treat a variety of diseases and conditions in infants and children related to their liver, pancreas or intestines. If your child has severe or recurrent abdominal pain, constipation or diarrhea, a pediatric gastroenterologist can help you get to the bottom of it. They can also help identify the many possible causes of failure to thrive in infants.
Other common conditions they treat include Crohn's Disease, inflammatory bowel disease, liver disease, short gut syndrome and hepatitis C, as well as nutritional disorders like celiac disease and lactose intolerance. In order to diagnose and treat your child’s condition, gastroenterologists can perform colonoscopies and other diagnostic testing before deciding on the best treatment plan.
A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

There is absolutely no reason in the world why you should go to this uncouth, rude, ill-mannered man. I have been sick for about 6-7 months now, and I was feeling pretty run down. My general family care doctor diagnosed me with severe Hypothyroidism, and he believed it was the cause of my discomfort. I waited the given 2-3 months for my body to react, but it did not. The medicine raised my thyroid levels, but did not help my gastrointestinal issues. Every time I eat, I feel nauseous and get very sick. My family doctor recommended me to this joke of a doctor, and I unknowingly followed through. My first appointment with "Doctor" Kline was very, very discouraging, to say the least. He shoved a diet plan in my face (after calling me obese, mind you I've lost approximately 35 pounds since starting my thyroid medication and now weigh just around 100lbs.) and immediately scheduled a colonoscopy and endoscopy for me. He also performed *TWO* ultrasounds on me, while misusing the machine! Correct me if I'm wrong, but GI doctors have no business using one of those if not on your intestines. Nevertheless, I followed through with the procedures. "Doctor" Kline was not only rude and selfish, but he was unprofessional. The look of his office is shady at best, and it's unclean. He has numerous signs on his walls (IN A PEDIATRIC FACILITY) stating ghastly statements like "Get over it", "No whiners", "Help stop global whining", "Put on your big girl panties and deal with it." and many other rude, unprofessional statements. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE DO NOT GO TO THIS VILE MAN. And now, nearly 3 months after my procedures, I have not received my results from this disgusting man and he has been putting illegitimate charges on CREDIT CARDS we have (of which he requires the number or refuses his joke services). In conclusion, this is the worst experience I have ever had with a doctor. Do yourselves a favor and schedule EARLY with MUSC, because I now have to wait until the end of May (about 5 months) before seeing a credible doctor. Don't waste your time or money on this man.
First going to doctor Kline i felt relieved. finally my daughter would get the help she needed. first appointment was great even though i was iffy about the office considering the way the inside looked.. Dr. kline wanted to do a colonoscopy on my daughter and have a tube put down her throat to take some samples of her lower intestines. ( i thought this was a bit Extreme for a 3 month old baby) but my first daughter never had an problems. so i thought these were the measures we were going to have to take to find out what was wrong with my baby. turns out her lower intestines were inflamed, and she has what they call *fissures* after 2 more visits, they came to a stop, i tried to make a appointment to have my daughter seen because she was having problems using the bathroom again and the prune juice he wanted me to use was no longer working for her. They would Never answer, or the machine said they were closed. I went through her pediatrician to have them set up another appointment and they had the same issue, so they sent them a referral... i didn't hear anything for almost a month. finally i decided to get my daughter to another doctor. now she goes through MUSC. todays appointment was upsetting my Daughter WAS NOT suppose to have those tests done she was WAY to young, Dr. Kline said she had reflux as Well, but nothing was done about it and according to her new doctor Dr. Kline should of prescribed her something for it 6 months ago. most of the stuff we went over today was things Dr. Kline did not tell me about my daughter and the things he was Suppose to do but did not do. I am not the only one who had to have their child referred to musc, because dr. kline failed to do his job.. Dr. Kline is rude, Ill mannered, and should not have a business i would not refer him to any mother. No one who is running a business for childcare should do something to a child that is not required. and should not Cuss around them either.. I am very happy that i made the choice to find someone else. now i know my daughter will receive the care she Very much deserves.
My child was seen at local childrens hospital. They treated him for months, while I watched my child decline and have pain and they ordered every test under the sun. After many unreturned phone calls and much frustration over not seeing the same doctor more than once. I switched to Dr Kline my son was better in just two visits with Dr Kline. I am so thankful to him, and can't say enought in favor of his care. He provided us the best level of care. He is someone who goes beyond "Normal Standards of Care" to actually help the children in his practice. His diet and medical plan are just what was necessary to stop the severe pain my son had. I don't know what I would of done without him. THANK YOU DR KLINE.
