Patient Comments (2)
in New Palestine, IN |
Dr. Kraus is very knowledgeable and an excellent listener; he spends time, with his patients and does not treat them like a number.
in Carmel, Indiana |
Dr. Kraus is solely responsible for saving my life and helping me set up in home dialysis with the NexStage home unit. He is directly resposible for my transplant. He continues to be my clinic and general physician. Dr. Kraus is top rate doctor and there is no better neuphrologist than him to care for your needs.
