Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Krueger "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."

Dr Kruger is wonderful. After being here in FL. for 2 years now I have found a compassionate Dr who is taking action to help me become pain free. Instead of just shoving pills at me and say go to physical therapy. My pain is beyond that point. Like I said he's wonderful straight forward and gets things done. It's a little difficult getting assistance from the girls at the front desk to make a appointment but I'll get there!!

If I could leave zero stars I would. This is simply a moneymaking operation for legal drug dealers. Beware of the incompetent administrative staff if you are forced by your insurance to go to this doctor. Pay close attention to your bills. If you must use Express Scripps as part of your insurance do not leave the office without seeing proof that they have faxed the prescription. Pain Consultants of West Florida as a whole have failed in every aspect of treatment. Go elsewhere if you can.

He is very nice and sincere. Always has a smile on his face. He has helped my pain so much!!

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.

compassion by doctor krueger and dr. coseption ! this is badly needed in medical field. while i am at it had to had surgery on 2 fractured vertabre done by dr. metzger

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.
