Dr. K has been very helpful in getting me diagnosed properly, handling surgery as well as after care. I did go to another ENT first but, he failed to listen to me telling him there was something more going on and just kept give me antibiotics. Dr K got to the bottom of the issue and was in touch with my other doctors as well to insure everyone knew what he had discovered and made sure communication was there to get me on the road to recovery. Refreshing that he listened to what I was saying and followed through. I would recommend Dr Kreutzer in a heartbeat.

Dr. Kreutzer is the ultimate professional with an immense dose of compassion thrown in. His dedication to his patients and his field is sincere and deeply felt. He shows great patience and always appears to have as much time as you need. He is careful to explain everything and talks to you like you are a partner in your own care, which you are. He has taken care of me, members of my family and friends of my family since 2005. His office is staffed with competent and caring people. I feel privileged to have him as my doctor.

Nothing less than perfect. After being referred to Dr. Kreutzer by my GP for a mass on my throat/neck, Dr. Kreutzer and his team worked quickly and efficiently to gather all the data needed to provide an accurate diagnosis. Then, in the midst of the beginning of a pandemic, he was able to usher together all the many resources and procedures needed to quantify my condition so I could begin cancer treatment. The effort he and his team made to get me through the many tests and procedures and into treatment under the circumstances is nothing less than amazing. This can’t be understated. Dr. Kreutzer was the critical component to the accurate diagnoses and following treatment. His communication during the entire process was clear and to the point in a situation that had no room for beating around the bush. The conversations we had were not always easy, but they were clear and pointed. I very much appreciate that. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Kreutzer and his team.

I had a perforation in my nasal septum that was nearly unfixable. I had been to a few other ENTs who told me that there was a 50/50 chance the surgery would be successful. Dr. Kreutzer assured me he would be able to fix it, and he did! I could not be happier with the outcome. Not only did he fix the perforation, but he also fixed my deviated septum. My nose looks exactly the same (so amazing that they can do this surgery without any external incisions) and is in perfect condition now! The surgery itself was painless (under general anesthesia) and the recovery was as expected/not bad at all. Could not recommend Dr. Kreutzer and his team more. I was definitely that annoying patient that called a few times to ask questions after the operation, and they were extremely patient with me and provided detailed answers. Dr. Kreutzer's experience is unmatched -- I definitely recommend him for complex nose surgeries. So happy with the outcome of mine!

I have been going to Dr. Kreutzer for over 5 years. Originally for vertigo, which he successfully helped me resolve this problem. Later in 2020, he corrected a problem thru surgery of a left-oral antral fistula which has existed over a year and was originally incorrectly diagnosed -- outcome has been greatly successful. In addition, he was able to help a severe bleeding problem that was created by my husband taking plavex. I highly recommend him, as well as his staff for their professionalism.

Dr. Kreutzer was my PCP’s first choice when it came to handling my nasal polyps. He and his office staff are friendly, knowledgeable, and dedicated to providing quality care. Dr. Kreutzer is easy to talk to and shows he cares about his work by going the extra mile to ensure you everything you need pre & post surgery!

I have been a patient of Dr. Kreutzer's for about 5 years. My original complaint was regarding occluded nasal passages and sinuses. Dr. Kreutzer eventually performed surgery to correct the sinus and nasal polyp conditions, and I have been very happy with the results. No reoccurrences. Dr. K. is a straight shooter and tells you what's going on very clearly. He is also reasonable and willing to listen to your questions and explain the alternatives and their potential risks and consequences. He is an excellent doc and I recommend him highly. Most recently, I went to see Dr. K. and his audiologist because I had recently developed a problem with the hearing in one ear. It had been a couple of weeks since the initial injury and the hearing was still not getting better. Much to my surprise, his office staff squeezed me into his schedule that very same day and I was able to have my hearing checked and consult with Dr. K. about the situation. Many thanks!

I had an upper eyelid surgery with Dr.Kreutzer and I couldn't be happier with the results! I look at least a decade younger than prior to the surgery. I also want to point out how natural I look. You cannot tell that I had surgery. Dr. Kreutzer was very pleasant, professional, and sincere. He is a wonderful surgeon, and cares very much about the result. Thank you!

Very informative and communictive about the process. Excellent surgeon - my recovery was as advertised and my nasal polyps have not recurred AT ALL. Later throat surgery has eliminated my sleep apnea.

Dr Kreutzer has always been quickly available to my SCL Family Medicine clients. I count on his expertise not just for ENT challenges but for facial reconstructions and guidance with adjunct care of my patients with Central and Obstructive Sleep Apneas. Having been treated by him several times myself, twice emergently, it’s clear to me that both he and his staff have the most cordial and kind demeanor that allows one to feel less stressed the moment one walks in. That means everything to me when seconds count. His is a consummate practice that I’m thankful to have just down the street from mine. I call often, and am grateful for his cordial staff who are always accommodating towards me and the needs of my patients. Edward Shuherk.
