Dr. Howard Krein is an amazing doctor/surgeon. I had an amazing experience while under his care. The whole process was a great one. At no time did I second guess my care. From the diagnostic, surgery and post surgery I felt nothing but confidence in his ability to help me. Dr. Krein is very personable and takes took his time to listen to my concerns and questions. He answered all the questions in a manner that I could understand. He took his time with me. At no time did I feel like I was being rushed or was just another number. At the end of the day Dr. Krein has improved the quality of my life and there is not enough I can do to thank him.

Dr. Krein is phenomenal at his job and phenomenal with his patients. He takes the time to listen, explain, and just get to know his patients and their story. Each visit has been thorough and he always answers my questions. I am so glad I picked him to provide my care and truly could not have seen myself being as pleased with my experience as I am now if I went another route.

Dr. Krein did three procedures to reconstruct my nose after a botched procedure from another physician. Dr. Krein always explained each procedure clearly and took the time to answer all of my questions. He was consistently kind, compassionate, and understanding. I am extremely pleased with the final results of my reconstructed nose and face.

Having spent time with Dr Krein I have noticed that he really does care about his patients wants/needs but also care about his results. Always willing to listen and talk about concerns. The day of surgery he spoke with me for about 10 minutes and really put me at ease before going under.
