Patient Comments (5)
in Queen Creek, Az. |
We found Dr. Michael Kralik to be extremely knowledgeable, compassionate and conciencious. In this modern day when it seems that it's all about 'inventory' and money in the medical world, Dr. Kralik took the time to diagnose and correct the problem and seemed genuinely compassionate for the patient. We cannot begin to thank him enough. We would DEFINITELY recommend Dr. Kralik for any cardiovascular needs.

I lost my left leg due to his incompetence.

On this past Memorial day Dr. Kralik operated on me to remove fluid between my lungs and rib cage. At 65 I have been fortunate to never having been admitted to a hospital. I have to admit I was scared. I can truly say that because of Dr Kralik's forthright demeanor and air of confidence I was sure that the surgery was going to be successful. I was right and I am now back to enjoying my life as before. Thank You Dr Kralik.

Doctor Kralik came to hospital, very cordial, he's busy, everyone in the hospital said he's good, my husband had a blocked carotid arerty in the neck, the artery was twisted, little more challenging. Doctor said he see's that in one patient every two year, that's who you want someone with lot's of experience, my husband had some swelling, called Doctors service at 11:00 pm. Doctor himself called back, we were impressed, he cared about his patient, talks to you, takes time, highly recommend.
