What People Say About Dr. Joshua Krassen, DO
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Not impressed in the least, he is not thorough & I felt I needed to lead the appointment in the direction needed. He showed little interest & I felt like I was being shuffled thru so he could be done for the day. Not very warm & caring ... very disappointed ?? Not the kind of Doctor I want to continue long term . He's ok nice , but seems unfeeling / blah to helping you out .

I would not recommend to any family or friends. I would give No Star if I could. Staff seemed overworked and confused,..I could hear them complaining about there job in the back ground. Dr Krassen walked in as if he just woke up or had one bad night (perhaps he did). There was no physical exam at all, nor did he listen, no compassion what so ever. His mood was disturbing and he was abrupt when I asked questions. All in all a big waste of time and Insurance money!

He's given me excellent care for back problems. Most recently I needed an appointment unexpectedly &'was gotten in that afternoon. He's given me cortisone injections both in office & in hospital same day treatment
