in Spring Hill, FL |
She is the best. I was so frighted when I was told that I had breast cancer. She promised me my concerns that I have with anesthesia awareness would not happen. And It didn't. A very conscientious , caring and excellent professional. Absolutely would recommend her to anyone. As I said she is the BEST. Please note I live in Florida. Well worth the traveling to her and only her for surgery.

Dr. Krueger is a wonderful and very compassionate doctor. She communicates very well with her patients and she is passionate about the work she do. I became a patient of her in 1/2014.

Beware of this doctor!!!!! Do not let her operate on you! She is not a breast surgeon only a general surgeon. She removed my breasts and left behind tons of breast tissue. Due to this my cancer returned quickly. My new set of doctors weighed the amount of breast tissue and said it should have all been removed. Because of her I had to do chemo twice! I also had to have my reconstructive surgery of my new breasts all removed again. I went through this hell because of her Do not walk run away!!!!

I tell EVERYONE about Dr. Krueger and insist they always receive an opinion from her. She used to call me on Sundays to check on me. She even stayed with me at the E.R. for an hour when I had an infection, even though I insisted she go home (after just finishing a long shift/surgery). She honest and extremely gentle at the same time.
