Care Philosophy

Mobility is the one thing that allows you to participate in all activities of daily life. My practice is geared toward helping each patient meet their mobility goals. In my orthopedic practice, I treat a variety of orthopedic conditions that affect a patient's mobility, from bunions and hammertoes to ankle fractures to patellar tendonitis to arthritis of the hip. Along with my staff, Team Mobility, my goal is to restore pain-free mobility to all of our patients, regardless of level of activity.

Dr John Krause is just in his profession for the paycheck and nothing more. Clearly there is a blatant conflict of interest when treating workers comp patients. He does not care for his patients health. A friend was injured at work and still cant even bend his knees while walking but this "doctor" seems to think he is ready to return to full duty??? Oh did I mention my friend is a police officer. And lets be clear I had to give him a star or Google would not accept my review.

Dr. Krause, like most doctors at TOC-STL, just want to perform surgery for everything. He looked at my ankle for 5 minutes then said come back in 6 wks and see what it does on it's own. I went back and he said come back in 6 wks and if nothing improves then surgery will be needed. What?! No medicine, no rest, no boot, no brace, no physical therapy!? Ridiculous. Obviously didn't schedule another appointment. I went to Dr. Mahaffey at Mercy and have been in PT with an almost full recovery!

Terrible treatment by staff and doctor
in Scott City, Missouri |
If you have a foot or ankle problem Dr Krause is who you should see!!! I had surgery six months ago from a different ortho Dr and not everything was corrected . I saw Dr Krause and he immediately knew what the problem was and how to fix it . I can not say enough about him and his staff !! He explains every aspect of what he is doing and spends the time to answer every question you have . I am elated to know that i am going to be able to walk again and it's all thanks to Dr Krause!!!

My lower extremity orthopedic issue was not adequately addressed. No manual exam. After waiting for 40 minutes was with md for initial visit for 6 minutes. Absolutely no resolution to issue or plan for further assessment after mri was negative for an obvious fracture. Have completed ironman in the past and currently have pain daily with stairs. Will need to start process over with a more qualified and interested doc.
