Dr. krenzel was very patient and informative during my visit. He explained things I could do to help alleviate some of the pain I was having. He did not make me feel rushed and did not just focus on my weight. He showed that he understood the direct correlation between poor health care and the African American community. I truly appreciated his knowledge and expertise. I also followed his advice and was able to reduce my BMI by 5% and lost a total of 22lbs. Although I'm still in a lot of pain due to my bone on bone Osteoarthritis, I am thankful to be loosing the weight.

Did not see Brian, this visit, saw his newer PA who seems knowledgable, but may need to listen a bit more acutely to the patient. ALL other contacts with Krenzel and his staff in the past for me and my spouse have been superb. In fact, he is replacing my wife's knee this coming Tuesday and has previously replaced her hip. Elbow, shoulder and wrist performed by other OrthoCarolina surgeons. All highly regarded. Not too long till I have a completely new wife. Just a few more parts to replace!

Very professional staff and doctor Krenzel explained my injury to where I understood everything, and how the previous doctor and/or radiologist misread the MRI, and the instructions were clear and my level of confidence skyrocketed from there! Because I went in there thinking I was going to have surgery but to receive news that I didn’t was awesome because at my age not so great! So thank you and your staff for the professionalism great courteous and respectful way of treating your patients

I came to visit doctor krenzel when I could hardly walk. After the surgery I became a new person. He and his staff were very helpful every step of the way. The help and encouragement I have received has changed my life. I would recommend his care to anyone who is having serious problems of walking and has a poor quality of life.

Dr. Krenzel replaced both my knees in 2017. He was very clear about the effort it would take to prepare for joint replacement as well as the work involved in recovery. I felt fully informed and confident prior to my surgery. The whole team, including Dr.Krenzel, the PA’s and the Physical Therapists were focused on improving the quality of my life through surgery and follow up care. I couldn’t be happier with the outcome.
