Patient Comments (4)

Horrible doctor, I went to see him because of a spur in my foot (i had seen the xray of my foot, and had seen the spur) this doctor told me I had something else, and i did not have a spur. Then 6 weeks later he told me that I had to lose 75 pounds and that would solve my problem. Please do not...more

I love Dr. Krieger but many of his office staff are rude and plain awful. They have made me not want to return on several occasions. Also, I've never waited less than 2 hours to be seen.

Dr. Krieger is always courteous and genuinely caring. He is an excellent surgeon. He has done two surgeries on me, and I didn't take any pain medication either time.

I've been going to Dr. Krieger for many years with bone issues. I had a carpal tunnel operation by him which was a success. You can't even see the scar he performed. Also had a rotarcuff surgery which was also a great success. I wouldn't go to any other Doctor.
