Dr. Kralick was very pleasant and he explained every detail of the procedure my husband was having done. After our visit we were very confident with him doing his surgical procedure. We would highly recommend him to whom ever needs to have surgery. Friendly, compassionate, informative, has a great personality and makes you feel comfortable. He took his time with us and answered all our questions and concerns. My husbands surgery was a success, thanks to Dr. Kralick.

I have two spinal stimulators one for left leg and one for lower back pain the implants were done by another doctor (worker's compensation) the one for my lower back pain. Was placed wrong and didn't give me any type of relief after looking into it the placement was wrong so Dr.kralic removed it and put a new one five days after surgery Abbott rep programmed it instantly relied most of my pain on a 1 to 10 a 6 and that was his first. Thank you Dr.kralic you and your nurse God send .

I had a very large herniated disc that was causing sciatica and major pain. It was getting worse daily, to the point that I couldn’t stand up straight, couldn’t walk normally, I had tingling down my legs and sometimes weakness. Dr Kralick took me in for surgery early, when I came out of surgery I was sore, but the pain was gone. I was able to go home same day. I am so thankful for Dr Kralick and will be recommending him to anyone and everyone!

After 2 years of experiencing severe back and leg pain, 2 weeks ago Dr. Kralick performed microsurgery on my back. Already the pain has greatly subsided, feels better every day, and I expect to be pain-free within a few weeks. He's an excellent surgeon, professional, caring, really listens, and explains everything well. We're lucky to have such a renowned neurosurgeon in our area. His nursing staff is amazing too.

I was referred to Dr. Kralick by a fellow nurse after she had been very happy with the surgery he did on her back. He is very personable and was willing to answer all my questions about my surgery. He is very experienced and thorough. I was glad that I did not have to drive very far for my surgery.

We highly recommend Dr. Kralick! He successfully performed back surgery on my 90 year old mother, taking her out of excruciating pain. He also has a caring personality and is compassionate with his patient and family with questions and giving information. Thank you Dr. Kralick!

Dr. Kralick was extremely affable and easy to talk to. He explained everything in depth to me and ordered the appropriate tests. He made me feel very comfortable with our plan of action. I liked that he did not go down the "what if this happens road" as this was my first visit and not the appropriate time to discuss those scenarios. His credentials are impressive, which is important when choosing a surgeon. I believe anyone would be well served in seeking him out for an initial consult.

My experience with Dr.Kralick has been extremely positive. I was unsure whether to travel to Phila. for my back surgery but am so happy that I found Dr.Kralick and was able to handle things close to home. Dr.Kralick was professional, compassionate & easy to talk to. He took the time to listen & answer all my questions (& I had many). He never made me feel rushed. I have struggled with back pain for 10 years. Since surgery, I am feeling much improved. I am a nurse & highly recommend Dr.Kralick.

I am pain free since the day of surgery. I'm so happy that I chose Dr. Kralick. He explained the procedure before the surgery and after the surgery. He has answered any questions that I had. I had a 3 level Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion on August 30th(2016) and after suffering through months of pain, am completely without pain and starting to live a normal life again. Thank you Dr. Kralick
