Horrible! The first time I went to him, I was unimpressed. He was dismissive and uninterested. However, there aren't many Rheumatologists in my area, so I went back. The second time was a nightmare. He was obviously sick, so I tried to be tolerant, but he crossed the line! He told me that I needed to change my perspective on my diagnosis because "at least it's not cancer", then grabbed my love handles and told me my back hurt because I carry all my weight there (I weigh 130lbs).

STAY AWAY! My mother saw Dr Kramer for 5 years. He has a poor bedside manner and gave her a diagnosis of systemic Lupus, which later proved to be incorrect. We went to another rheumatologist for a 2nd opinion, and as a result he refused to see or help my mother ever again. Even when she was hospitalized and the attending physician wanted to discuss her clinical history, Dr Kramer refused to take that doctor's call. I couldn't believe that someone could be so petty and cruel.

He just didn't seem to care one way or another about my condition.

Dr. Kramer tracked down the cause of debilitating pain that was ruining my life after 3 other doctors were unable to pinpoint the source for over 3 months. With the right medication he had me functional again in less than 48 hours and 2 years later provides the appropriate level of monitoring. Dr. Kramer spends time to answer all my questions.
