Care Philosophy

As a premier pain management doctor on the Gulf Coast, I know the importance of tailoring your treatment to fit your needs. Our treatment recommendations always start with conservative interventions such as activity modification, therapeutic exercise or physical therapy. For more persistent pain problems, I then offer non-surgical or minimally invasive procedures that can help resolve lingering painful conditions in the spine and extremities. Patient-centered care is my focus.Read more

Dr. Kruger himself is a great doctor however the billing department are criminals. My wife has seen him now for over a year but had to cancel two appointments due to family emergencies. We were billed $90 for each cancellation because it wasn't 24 hours ahead of the appointment. Spoke to billing manager "Jessica" but she didn't care at all and said we still owe the money. Getting an attorney as well as different Doctor.

He is an older pain management doctor with years of experience. Creighton University is a small school in Omaha, Nebraska, but one of the best there is. Went to another pain manager for three years and no results. Dr. Krueger said the only thing to help my lower back pain was a spinal cord stimulator which works great. You have to go to an Orthopedic Surgeon to have it implanted and my doc was Dr. Metzger, West Florida Hospital complex and he is great also

If it were possible to give Dr. Krueger negative stars, I would do so. This man gave me a tainted injection that nearly took my life, and then took no responsibility for it. I contracted fungal meningitis and a spinal abscess due to his negligence. I now have neurogenic bladder, all because he wanted to save a few bucks by getting the cheapest steroids available while maximizing profits. This doctor was so callus he did not even cover my copays after infecting me. Use him at your own peril.
