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!
Marmora, NJ |
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
in Somers Point, NJ |
Dr Kralick gave me my life back. I had serious cervical spine compression causing me horrible pain, numbness and a very difficult time when I had to walk anywhere. On November 12, 2015 when I awoke from my two level cervical dissectomy and fusion I felt better instantly. No more pain. I'm so thankful for Dr Kralick. He was so compassionate and intelligent at the same time. So down to earth and answered all my questions. Thank you Dr Kralick.
in N Cape May, NJ |
I knew the minute I met Dr Kralick I had found the right person to help me with my back problem. After explaining my symptoms he knew exactly what I was describing, he was able to confirm what the MRI had described and what course of action was needed. He made me feel very comfortable and confident in my decision on how to proceed. I would recommend him to anyone who suffers from sciatic nerve pain.
in Tampa, FL |
Dr Kralick has been the most knowlegeable & compassionate doctor I've ever seen. His ability to tackle a challenge with expert care & genuine concern is unsurpassed. He cared for me for 5 years & performed 3 surgeries, restoring my quality of life each time. He always respected my preferences & encouraged open communication. Despite the complex nature of my conditions, Dr Kralick was prepared to consult his colleagues & do research. I felt he was committed to the best solution.
