I would definitely recommend Dr Kriss. First of all, she is a highly skilled surgeon, based on my experience with a bilateral hernia repair. I had a quick and painless recovery, able to get back to light exercise within just a couple days. It has now been a year since the repair and I have had no problems whatsoever. Secondly, she is a caring doctor, spending as much time as needed to answer questions and put you at ease. If I ever need a surgeon again, she will absolutely be my first choice!

She is awesome and very experienced.

From introduction through post surgery, Dr Kriss was professional, personable, thorough, accommodating and filled with comforting discussions about surgical and non-surgical things - truly helpful in soothing the fear of surgery.

You know you're surgeon is top notch when you write a review for one whom you had no choice in employing. During a visit to the ER for abdominal pain, I found out my appendix had nearly ruptured. I required immediate surgery and met Dr Kriss just moments before going under which was late in the evening. She was very knowledgeable of my condition and previewed the procedure with precision, all while being cheery despite her very long day.

Initial consultation was very pleasant. She took the time to get to know me and my condition, as well as my history. She was very thorough in her questioning as well as in her explanation to me of what she thought was going on. She sent me for a sonogram of the problem area and within 2 hours of my sono, she called me personally to discuss the findings and talk through next steps. Very happy with my care so far.

I am in the medical field so I am quite aware that there are good doctors and bad ones. I want to tell you that Dr. Kriss is an exceptional surgeon!! She explains surgery in great detail beforehand and takes her time to answer your questions. She is precise and detailed with her incisions. A couple of mine are only half an inch and hardly noticeable. I will happily recommend her to family and friends without hesitation.
