Excellent surgeon
Was always able to reach his office. Was very fortunate to have Dr. Kreuse and his team when I had a very bad elbow break. Complete recovery.

Dr. Kruse is great (assistant needs improvement)
Dr. Kruse is always so upbeat & ensures you understand what's been discussed before leaving the office. Would definitely recommend him. However, the office assistance or intern could do w/some improvement. Assistance provided us with MRI order that was incorrect & would not have been caught it if we didn't have trouble trying to get that type of MRI scheduled at the outside facility recommended (leading to an unnecessary, painful type of MRI, i.e., injection in injured area, etc. than a std. MRI which is all we needed). Thankful I questioned what that type of MRI was & why it was needed via several office phone calls etc (the assistant whom took the calls was very helpful in getting it all straighted out & was not the same that provided the original MRI paperwork).

Dr. Kruse is terrific!
I have been seeing Dr. Kruse to treat my wrists (DeQuervain's tenosynovitis) and thumbs (arthritis) for several years and have been a patient of Texas Orthopedic Associates for longer than that. Dr. Kruse is friendly, accessible, knowledgeable and trustworthy. His straightforward approach helps you plan for the future with whatever is happening with your joints. I will continue to trust him with my healthcare and would recommend him to anyone.
