Patient Comments (10)
Hingham, MA |
He has been thorough and thoughtful in every interaction, both evaluations and surgery. Completely comfortable and confident with his guidance.
in Randolph, MA |
"Very Compassionate MD, made me feel at ease.!!"
Nashua, NH |
Unable to diagnose or troubleshoot (warned by staff that he can't do this when called for appointment but saw previous reviews here and gave him a chance) so better hope your condition is textbook. Sloppy work (having his resident do the interview and examination) in a dirty and worn environment.
in Boston, MA |
In July 2013 Dr. Kryzanski did a back fusion surgery with a TLIF on my L3L4 and it worked out great. I had the surgery in the morning and I was up walking in the evening. The absence of pain from my body was a great feeling. In August 2017 I herniated a disc between my L5S1 and Dr. Kryzanski did a Microdiscectomy procedure. It was an out-patient procedure, and like before, I had it in the morning and was up walking around in the evening.... pain-free. I didn't even need any pain medication.
in Wakefield Ma 01880 |
I Had two surgeries by Dr Kryzanski, Cevical and Lumbar spine. Excellent results with both.
in MA |
Highly recommend he helped with nerve pain I've had for years caused by compression of my vertebrae and the nerve root. Dr. Kryzanski was very patient taking the time to explain the cause as well as the procedure needed to give me relief. Did not rush you and truly listened. Very pleasant physician and am thankful for all he's done.
Massachusetts |
Easy doctor to speak with, great doctor who shows care and takes time for his patients. I was fortunate he performed my brain surgery almost 5 years ago.
Boston, MA |
I was very pleased with my outcome with the results and surgery.
in Whitman, MA |
I have been seeing Dr. K for over 10 years and would not go anywhere else. He has kept me walking and in as little pain as possible with my condition. I have recommended him to multiple friends and family. He's the BEST!!!!
Boston, MA |
Dr Kryzanski removed my left hippocampus to eliminate my epilepsy. This happened a few weeks ago and I have been healing quickly and feeling great. Dr. Kryzanski was personable, kind, and patient. I have so many things to say! Love him!
