David Kruger, MD Reviews (210)

Office Visit / Follow-up

Waited 45 minutes, had 2 minutes of face to face time. This could have been done over the phone or telemed. Waiting room time is extremely aggravating to my back injury and would much rather be avoided when possible.

Office Visit / Follow-up

Dr. Kruger fixed all of my pain that I was experiencing in my shoulder neck and arm. I initially wrote it off to getting older. Personally I still can't accept I'm getting older LOL but felt there was something else wrong with my neck. So the first step was contacting my primary care physician. My sister had Dr. Kruger fix her back which by the way is still excellent. So I decided to go with Dr. Krueger.

Dr. Kruger is very professional and one of the best doctors that I ever met. The personal office is great as well!

There was little to no wait time. Dr. Kruger took the time to explain to me and to my siblings about the complicated surgery I was going to have. [Single best thing is...] I lived and the procedure (11 hours) was a success.
