Dr. Kramer is an angel. Period. Yes, he is an expert in his field and you or your loved one are assured the best care under his guidance, but that's just the beginning. He goes above and beyond in every way bringing his years of experience and wonderful bedside manner to every aspect of a patient's care. He saved my husband's life and my sanity and eleven years post cancer, he is there when we need him. Always. Don't look any further. Become a part of Dr. Kramer's world. Now.

He treated the most important person in my world. He was innovative, compassionate, flexible, and incredibly knowledgeable. We felt completely safe with his care and knew he could be trusted for us to let go and do basic care.

Dr. Kramer saved me. I was diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer 5 years ago. I waited for almost 5 years to write this review to make sure that this review is accurate. Thanks to the treatment by Dr. Kramer, I am now living as a healthy and happy individual. The primary purpose of writing this review is to help cancer patients and their friends and relatives. I know how desperate you are trying to find the best doctor to treat deadly cancers. Dr. Kramer is a savior!

Calmly and thoroughly explains patient status + treatments, and continues with the same high level of care throughout the entire process...and after as well. Keeps the participating doctors fully apprised, enabling a coordinated team effort on patient care. A genuinely kind and skillful doctor.

I had cancer of the larynx 12 years ago. When diagnosed I was T-3 moving into T-4, it was in my lymph nodes. My original oncologist wanted to do the normal protocol and remove the larynx, voice box and put a breathing hole in my neck. Dr Kramer saved me from that horrible fate. He cured me with chemo and radiation. Sure there are side effects, but I retained my powers of speech. I am alive today thanks to the knowledge and skill of Dr Kramer
