Rebecca L. Cali, MD, FASCRS, is a board-certified colorectal surgeon at UT Health East Texas Physicians on Fifth Street in Tyler who treats a full range of colorectal diseases. She also practices at UT Health Jacksonville. In addition to performing colorectal surgery and colonoscopies, she has expertise in treating anorectal problems, pelvic floor dysfunction, constipation and loss of bowel control.
Taking the time to listen to her patients is important to Dr. Cali. "Many people are reluctant to bring up the type of conditions I treat with their primary care physicians, but are willing to talk more freely to a doctor who specializes in addressing their specific problem."
