He recently saw our infant and did an outstanding job-he was extremely personably and explained everything to us in detail. He called twice to discuss results of a follow-up test and the next step in treatment. Highly recommend so far!

I had an appointment today with DR Kress to have a mole looked at on my daughters back, he was one of the nicest doctors I ever had for my daughter or myself for that matter... It turned out the mole was nothing but he explained everything in detail ( so me AND my daughter could understand ) very friendly and knowledgable and friendly staff as well!!! I would tecommend him in a heart beat!!!

Had his staff do all the talking, greeting, consulting and then stepped in and barely touched her. All she had was plantar warts and he stood a few feet back from her and acted as if she had leprosy. Barely even interacted. I know they have hundreds of patients but when you go to see the doctor, you want to spend time with the doctor.

Dr. Kress is very nice and knowledgeable. He was really good w/ my son. He answered all our questions and explained the diagnosis to our understanding. We would recommend Dr Kress to our friends and family.

My Daughter and Niece had a rash that had stumped three other doctors in two states, including an infections disease expert. He quickly diagnosed the source and everyone is now on the mend.
