Unprofessional, unfit and judgmental! I'm a singer so I went to have my vocal cords checked. He misdiagnosed me as having "ulcers". Made accusations against me saying "You're not willing to put in the work for your voice". I was SO offended! He NEVER answered my questions. I still don't know what ulcers are. I went to KU where an entire EMT team confirmed my vocal chords just needed rest, no ulcer. Krebs will rob you of time and money. If you don't believe me look at all his BAD google reviews!

I went to this dr after a recommendation from my gastro-dr. I needed a scope because I had the feeling of something stuck in my throat. It started out gradual and became more intense but always came and went. This so-called doctor was nice when I was nervous. The problem was as he was telling me what he thought, I ask a question and he got so mad and said I would not allow him to explain. WHAT???? Since when can you NOT EVEN ask a question! WHAT A COMPLEX he has!! NEVER AGAIN!

Dr. Krebs was very thorough in listening to my problems and addressing each one. He gave me as much time as I needed. Very competent and experienced. No rush at all.

Not impressed. I went to this physician for hearing loss. I was recommended by an audiologist to see an ENT specialist. This provider did not listen to my symptoms nor offer any conclusions. After just 10 minutes, provider says I need to see a different doctor. I am beyond frustrated and not quite sure why I had to pay a Co pay for nothing being done.

Dr KREBS made no effort to speak so I could hear him even though that is the reason for my referral to him. He was vague about my diagnosis. He put me on an antibiotic pending diagnosis confirmation from an audiologist which is no longer available within his practice. I questioned whether this would be effective since I had already had a course of antibiotic from my primary. He said he couldn't understand what I was asking. He was rude and dismissive.
Was the most unprofessional doctor I have ever seen in my life! Would not answer questions I had because I was told I just would not understand and would just be confused. Told him all symptoms I was having and he had no explanation for any of them, simply just a, well, hopefully it will go away with time. An absolute waste of time and money!

Dr. Krebs is pleasant, supportive, and really knows what he is doing. He is easy to contact in an emergency. His office personnel are also exceptionally good.
