Plainfield, IL |
Dr. Kretschmar, his nurse practitioner, and his staff are all very wonderful and caring. I transferred here from another GI last year and have been very pleased with my care so far.

His front desk office staff are wonderful and friendly! Dr. Kretschmar is good at the procedures but unfortunately I needed more care and he just would not or could not do that for me. As far as the female Doctor in the office she is very confusing and I found her telling me the wrong information a couple of times. Most of his staff made me feel like I was bothering them. It was and still is very upsetting to me. I had to go elsewhere.

Dr. Kretschmar was very thorough and patient in explaining a diagnosis that my daughter had. When symptoms recurred, he continued testing to find a reason. We were very pleased with his manner and especially that he invited us to pray at every visit. When he did my screening colonoscopy, I did not want the expense of anesthesia because my insurance won't pay. He offered a sedation instead. If you can call a colonoscopy perfect, this one was.

He is caring, skilled and offers to pray with you before the procedure.

You only get to talk to his nurse and she can be very confusing and not terribly concerned if you do not understand his recommendations.
