Patient Comments (6)
Goshen, CT |
I have had numerous spine surgeries. Dr. Kramer is the only Doctor that I have had that had me put under prior to arriving and never saw me while I was in the hospital. He's not a zero but a negative.
Guilford, CT |
Very rude and arrogant just like some of the other doctors in this practice (Dr. Minotti). My last appoint he just walked out on me and said there is nothing he can do for me. This is not the doctor you want to see.
Southington, CT |
The most awful MD experience I have had. Waited 1hr in waiting room and 45 minutes in exam room. Saw Dr Kramer for 5min. He recited my medical history fast and when I corrected him and told him he was misinformed(not my history) he left the room/came back and insisted I needed facet injection. I told him I need medication for pain /he suggested tylenol. WTH if tyenol helped why did I need to see him? He reluctantly wrote a prescription for Tramadol/facet inj the next day. MONEY HUNGRY DOC!
In the pre procedure waiting rooms prior to epidural admin., the patients agreed the MD should just line 10 of us up at a time, spritz our back w/ antiseptic, then just rollerskate from pt. to pt. Sticking needles in--we we always so rushed. Against HIPPA, the MD dictates pt. asm. between exam rooms, yet another time saver for HIM. Absurd practitioner, certainly would not make his parents proud.

MD is not forthright (I am a savvy HC Professional) and I/my family question his ethics/moral values. Denied incident that occurred despite clear facts provided by other staff members. Definitely would NOT recommend.
Bridgeport, CT |
The doctor rushed through evert appointment. I waited over an hour for visits, 20 minutes in the exam room, and only 10 minutes to discuss medical condition on one occasion, and 2 minutes to discuss on another occasion.
