I highly recommend this doctor if you have all day to sit in his office and wait. If you want an office staff who are very unfriendly and seem to be annoyed by you, this is your place. I suppose the doctor might be really good. That is what I have heard. I didn't get past the office staff. I refuse a three-hour wait. Dermatologists are a dime a dozen.

I would highly recommend Dr. Krell. Both he and his staff were professional, prompt and friendly. The evening after performing skin cancer excision surgery on my ear, he personally called me at my home to make sure I was doing well. I was very pleased with the treatment I received, and with the results of my reconstructive surgery.

My experience with Dr. Krill was a pleasant. All employees were friendly, professional & welcoming. No long waits.
