My daughter took my grandson to see Dr. Krol. They put him in the room and got him ready to see the doctor. They then came in and told him they needed the room for another patient. He was sent back into the waiting room. After 45 minutes my daughter decided to leave as they had taken several people in to see the doctor while my grandson was still waiting. When she asked when he would see the doctor, the receptionist told my daughter she had no idea. NOT the way to treat people!!

I have been going to Dr. Krol since Jan.2012 where I was diagnosed with allergies. I have several but the worst is grass. I use 3 drops under my tongue every day instead of taking the shots weekly. My allergies have all improved. My symptoms have decreased overall. I am very pleased. The staff is friendly and nice as well as Dr. Krol. Keep up the good work !!!

I have been seeing Dr. Krol for many, many years. I think I was one of her first patients! She got my asthma under control, and I never required hospitalization. My allergy injections have helped me tremendously. I've never had any trouble getting a timely appointment, and the staff is very helpful.

A doctor who truly understands her craft inside and out. I have been receiving allergy shots from Dr Krol for quite some time. The shots do make a difference and improve your life. The office is a basic setup with a waiting room and a few patient areas in the back. I see the staff on Saturday's and can be in and out within 30 mins. Dr Krol is a no frills doctor who works with the rules installed by the insurance industry. She ensures patients receive the best treatment possible.

I suffered terribly from seasonal allergies, until I started going to Dr. Krol. One of the questions I'm asked when I go in for a visit is " have your allergies been bothering you" and my answer is always no. I recommend her to any of my friends who have allergies

When I made my first appt. with Dr. Krol, I was rather desperate. I had a severe condition and was turned away by another allergist who refused to do the paperwork involved with a special monthly shot I needed to take. Dr. Krol listened to my story and within a very short amount of time I was treated and my problem was resolved. She also made a critical recommendation to me and aided me in resolving another condition I was suffering from. I am a weekly patient and am very thankful to her.
