Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Kratz "My practice emphasis and passion is for Minimally Invasive Gynecology. In short, my philosophy is to be as conservative as possible when addressing patient's gynecology problems and use surgery only as the last option. When surgery is necessary, outpatient endometrial ablations and hysteroscopic and laparoscopic procedures can often correct gynecology problems without hysterectomy. Appointments are available on short order with either myself or nurse practitioners Amy Linn and Faith Jones."
