in Cumberland, RI |
Dr.Kramer operated on both my left and right knees between the years 2013-2014. I could not say enough good things about him. He is friendly, cares about all his patients, and definitely knows what he is talking about. He got me out of surgery and back to playing my sport withing 6 months. I recommend him for any sports related injuries.
