My mother's appt. was 80 minutes late. At end of our visit, Dr. Krause mentioned he could not do the surgery (medical issue?) and his associate would do it (who has very mixed reviews to say the least). Said my mother needed a CAT scan and would schedule. They never called so 2 days later I called - reassured us would call us. Never heard back. Very disrespectful of our time. Rude staff. Had surgery at Methodist - excellent Dr. and care at Methodist. Go somewhere else for professional care.
