My neighbor recommended Dr. Kramer over 10 years ago and so grateful she did he really is the best dermatologist. Ive had a lot of moles removed, pre cancer, and odd vessels he has has taken care of. Also my skin is over sensitive and fair with a lot of sun damage yet not to worry he takes the time to make sure the proceedures are safe and effective. Thank you Dr. Kramer!

Dr. Kramer is the best! By far the most attentive doctor I've ever had. It's so refreshing to meet a doctor who truly cares about his patients' health and doesn't rush through appointments at all. I first came in with a skin condition that I developed due to an insane amount of insect bites I got from spending time in a jungle overseas ... and I was so surprised and impressed with the amount of time Dr. Kramer spent with me, examining my skin thoroughly and asking me several questions to try to figure out what was going on. In subsequent appointments that I've had with him, he has been equally as dedicated to helping me with my skin needs. Even as someone who gets super frustrated with how expensive American health care is, I truly believe the money that I have paid to see Dr. Kramer has been more than worth it. This doctor is really great at what he does and I'll be sure to return to him for my skin needs as long as he is in business. Why can't all doctors be like him??

Dr. Kramer was able to aid me in finding the right medication to help fight my acne. I have tried many things and nothing helped until he helped me. His staff Lauren was very helpful during my follow ups and had my safety as her number one priority. Maria was very kind when initially bringing me back to my room. Even the receptionist Leslie was very helpful when it came to figuring out my billing and co-pays. I would recommend this facility to anyone dealing with dermatology related issues.

Was referred to Dr Kramer from my Primary, and was a little nervous because Skin cancer runs in my Irish family. But I gotta tell ya Dr. Kramer took the time to explain what was on my body and gave me slow and perfect explanation of what was needed to get all removed or frozen. Will refer Dr. Kramer to everyone that needs some assistance with removing some tags, or just a quick checkup. Dr. Kramer will explain things fully and get you comfortable before he moves forward. and only if you are willing.

My husband and I have been going to Dr Kramer for several years. He is an exceptional doctor. My husband had melanoma and is now cancer free. I especially appreciate that he keeps up to date and attends new training. Dr Kramer is a most competent and trustworthy doctor. I highly recommend him to anyone who wants state-of-the-art care. The front office is most friendly and professional and sets the tone for a positive experience.

I've been coming to Dr. Kramer for years for regular skin checks. He introduced me to Lauren and the IPL treatment. I am very happy with the results. Freckles are disappearing and skin is becoming clear. It lessens my chance for skin cancer and I'm looking younder.
