What People Say About Dr. David Kramer, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I had spinal stenosis and needed fusion of the L4 & L5. I heard horror stories about this surgery. Dr. Kramer explained the procedure in detail so I would understand exactly what will happen before, during and after surgery. Everything went according to plan. I feel great. No more pain. I highly recommend Dr. Kramer for any kind of neck or back issues.

I saw Dr. Kramer for a separate issue after over ten years. He really listens and therefore is able to focus in efficiently on a possible diagnosis and treatment. He does what is necessary by calling another doctor you have seen or going back and re-reviewing x-rays, MRI while you are there to target your problem and subsequent treatment. He is conservative in his approach which has worked well for me and I suspect for other patients he has helped. Dr. Kramer is not only an excellent doctor in terms of his intellect, education, training and skill set but because he really cares. I have recommended Dr. Kramer to many friends over the years and will unhesitatingly do so again in the future.

Dr. Kramer is excellent. He takes the time to go over all options. I recently saw him after 8 years and it was like seeing him last week. He is current on the technological developments and is just an all around great Doctor who came highly recommended by my primary Doctor and others

Dr. Kramer was great! I highly recommend him. He is a great listener, and asked the questions I forgot to regarding my issue. He took time with me even though my issue was not an emergency, was patient, and helpful with his suggestions for preventative care. I feel confident that if I were to need to return, I would receive excellent care. Thank you Dr. Kramer!

I had a pinched cervical nerve. Dr. Kramer replaced three damaged cervical disks that had caused me neck pain and left arm numbness and weakness. He is a very fine, experienced, skilled, and caring surgeon, and his support staff is always courteous and helpful. Following surgery my neck pain diminished as I healed, my left arm’s range of motion is restored and almost back to 100% with an exercise program, and I feel great. I highly recommend Dr. Kramer if you need neck or back surgery.

Hands down, best Doctor ever. Great bedside manner and took incredible time with my parents. I can’t say enough about him and the wonderful job he did on my moms back. She is new and improved. Really a wonderful experience.

Dr. Kramer is compassionate, warm, and humble. His diagnostic skills are excellent and he is conservative with treatment. He looks at the whole picture and takes everything into consideration; I don’t think I have been to a more thorough physician. He is quick to respond to phone calls. Dr. Kramer’s bedside manner leaves me feeling reassured and comfortable. On another note, he’s got a wicked sense of humor and was able to make me laugh even when in nearly unbearable pain.

Dr. Kramer has treated me for 10+ years. He is extremely well skilled in spine surgery and cares about me as a whole person, not just the problem I present him with. I wouldn't go to anyone else.

I had a consult with Dr. K. on 12/2/16 & was excited about finally getting a clear diagnosis & a plan toward pain relief. I dropped off my existing MRI of which he said he would review & call back about how to proceed. To this date, 1/10/17 & after several calls to his office he has not followed thru. I just spoke w/ his nurse and she seemed amused by this which suggests this isn't an isolated incident. I am not amused. I've been living in pain and in need of relief. I will go elsewhere. BOO!
