Spent less than ten minutes with me. Seems to literally be guessing and smiling. Told me I had a condition, went to another dermatologist who told me absolutely not. No bedside manner, just arrogant and condescending

Dr. Krathen and his staff were absolutely wonderful! I was very pleased with the results from the fillers, being my first time. I was nervous that my lips would look abnormal but they ended up looking natural as he had promised. From entering his office and working with his kind assistants, to the cleanliness and order of his treatment room, all the way to the check out process – his office and professionalism is second to none.

Dr. Krathen is as good at it gets! He's got the right medical training, is thorough, diagnoses what's wrong, gives you lots of information about how things can be handled, and has the skills and techniques to cure you.His staff is also top-notch. His personality and medical manner is easy going and supportive. He also provides a lot of common sense and practical-get-the-stuff-at-the-local-drug-store tips. I recommend him to my family members and friends.

Dr. Krathen is very knowledgeable and has great bedside manner. He is a great dermatologist for medical and cosmetic care. I was very pleased with my botox and laser treatment for brown spots results!

Excellent medical and cosmetic care. Very happy with Botox results. The brown laser treatment took away all of my unwanted freckles and the IPL made my skin look great.

I have had psoriasis for many years. My dermatologist retired. I am extremely happy I choose Dr Krathen as my new dermatologist. He spent time with me. He explained everything and helped me not only treat my skin manifestations, but also he helped me with some systemic issues as well. Everyone would be lucky to have such a well trained, personable and caring physician as Dr. K.
