Time in the waiting room was good, as I was the only one. The surgery dept. seemed to be full. When taken back to dr. office wait time was around 20 min. When the dr. came in to check my ears he asked what ear did I have the tube put in, I thought he would know that. The tube he placed in, I understood would last longer than the normal tube. Upon checking out the tube he said it was out. Then we went to another room so he could extract the tube. I said I thought this tube was supposed to last longer than a normal tube. He stated sometimes they don't. He said that the ear drum was healed and no fluid behind the ear drum, at this time. In my chart he stated he checked my nose which was not done at this apt. Even though this apt. was a follow up my vitals were never checked, is this a normal procedure?

Dr. Krol is an excellent, caring doctor. He removed my parathyroid. He takes the time to explain everything that is involved with the procedure and the process from beginning to end. He is very professional and I would recommend him to everyone.

Dr. Krol is a very kind and compassionate doctor. Many doctors lack the ability to make the patient feel at ease and communicate effectively. Dr. Krol is different and it is apparent when you meet him. Individuals who have achieved the level of intellectual ability of a medical doctor are not always gifted in bed-side manner etiquette. Dr. Krol seems to have all the attributes that make for a great doctor. I highly recommend his services.

If I could leave a negative star I would. Appointment was at 2, after over an hour still haven’t seen the doctor. His assistant needs to realize this isn’t the hood. She is rude, for someone in the medical profession you would think they would know how to conduct themselves.

Dr. Krol Changed my life! Until my recent surgery, I have been living the last 15 years barely being able two breath through my nose. Due to previous surgeries and scar tissue, he had his work cut out to try to repair the damage. Needless to say I now breathe better than I have in my whole life!! His professionalism and kindness is second to none and I am so glad I trusted him to help me! If you need an incredible ENT in the Cincinnati area, do yourself a favor and call Dr. Krol first!

He cured my daughter's ear infections when she was a baby, and then he cured her snoring, and helped me breathe better.

My kids had constant ear infections and kept us awake in pain at night. Dr. Krol placed ear tubes for 2 of them. Immediately after tubes, they were fine and had no more infections. My oldest daughter had less infections and Dr. Krol did not recommend tubes for her, and she eventually grew out of the problem. I highly recommend him and his staff. The surgery center where the tubes were placed was filled with experienced older nurses who were the BEST!

He is an amazing doctor. He placed tubs in my 9 month year old baby and she did great. She is 8 years old now and has had no problems since then.
