Dr. Krein was really wonderful. The entire practice was professional, considerate, attentive, and understanding. The day of surgery was remarkable — every single person from Krein himself, to anesthesiologists, nurses, attendants, staff at desk, the person who took me to my car: just wonderful. I was dreading the whole thing and they just made it so much better. Thank you!

I've enjoyed all my time with Dr. Krein, from my initial visit to the medical procedure and through our followup, he has been a pleasure to interact with. He made me feel very comfortable, listened to all my questions and concerns and addressed everything in a clear and comforting manner. Very happy with my experience from start to finish.

Every aspect of my experience with Dr. Krein and the staff at Jefferson Facial Plastics was exceptional. Everything runs smoothly there from the moment you arrive. After my consultation, I felt confident my comfort and care would be their priority, and it was from the waiting room to recovery. Dr. Krein is extremely personable, caring, and gifted. I cannot overstate this doctor’s skill - my results are astounding. I recommend Dr. Krein for anyone seeking an elite professional, a very patient-centered experience, and truly amazing results.

Dr Krein is sweet, proficient in his work and my procedure was painless. I really recommend. I did my research before selecting him and I was NOT disappointed. I’m planning on having a rhinoplasty with him in the near future. He made me and my 3 friends (yes 3...) laugh and feel comfortable throughout the time I was getting the filler. Lovely man and great practice.
