Dr. Krupala isn't amazing and so dedicated to his patients. He is kind and patient and very knowledgeable. I am thankful for him!

I was experiencing severe dizziness. Primary care Dr. thought it was inner ear and treated me for those symptoms for about two months. Dr. Krupala was very thorough, asked a series of questions, had me do a series of movements and pinpointed my problem. He diagnosed my problem, fixed it right there in the office and sent me home without needing any medication. It was amazing! I highly recommend Dr. Krupala.
