Dr. Krauss is incompetent. I do not trust his option on anything. I worked with this doctor and his wife. I cannot think of anything positive to say about this experience.

STAY AWAY! He legally stole $5K+ from me. He has a degree and wants you to know that he is better than you. Unorganized and helpless fool! All I wanted to do was help my child so I used all of my savings. We are very dissatisfied with his services. How many other people is he doing this to? He taking advantage of people and they think that this is normal because he a doctor. How long is Rush Hospital going to tolerate this? I gave Rush the opportunity to make things right and they did nothing!

One star is too many. The man doesn't actually do anything useful. He spends his time engaged in conversations that are mostly irrelevant, needs to be constantly redirected, can't keep facts straight, repeatedly loses his notes, and makes up his own facts which directly contradict the evidence that he negligently refuses to read. He is a charlatan who eagerly charges $500 per hour until he eventually bills you $ 20,000, his magic number. Once he gets this money, he types a report that reads

Dr. Kraus is very dedicated and has significant experience. He has worked with my daughter through very difficult years of fairly severe anxiety and depression. He relates well to parents and to his patients. He is highly responsive in times of need. Very pleased with him and highly recommend him to any family going through the difficulty of a child with mental illness

He was condescending and rude at all times. He refused to listen to the needs of our child. Rather he spent the whole time staring at my breasts.

My 2 kids have been ptnts. of Dr. For 5 yrs. He was the only Dr to thoroughly and accurately diagnosis them both. He continues with proper follow up and picks up on exactly what is needed with meds. He is unbelievably attuned and attentive to kids. They feel comfortable with him because they can tell he genuinely cares. I am amazed at how dedicated he is to his patients. If we have ever needed anything- he gets back to us immediately. Fortunate he cares 4 his wrk. No reason to compare him.
