What People Say About Dr. Otakar Krcal, MD

I have been a patient of Dr. Krcal's for the past several years. I have a relatively rare neurologic condition that is not simple to treat. Over the past 40 years I have seen four different neurologist and Dr Krcal is by far and away the best neurologist I have seen. He takes the time to listen and to explain. I never feel rushed when seeing him. I would highly recommend Dr. Krcal.

I saw Dr Krcal last week because of a severe headache and neck pain that has been going on for 3 weeks. He gave me 3 injections and told me if I wasn't feeling any better by Mon morning to call him. I've called for 2 days and no response! Think it's time I find a new Neurologist..one that does what he says and cares!!

Dr. Krcal made me feel very comfortable and listened to my concerns. He offered his expertise and considered which options would be best for me based on my personal situation and concerns. He had a great sense of humor and was very pleasant to be around. The office was very clean and the other support staff was friendly as well. I would definitely recommend Dr. Krcal.

I have seen many docters in many places being a military spouse. This one is by far one of the best. He took his time with me and listened. He explained what might be wrong pending testing. He is very nice and has an overall friendly attitude. I have hope again, after 12 years that he might find out what is wrong. Highly recommended!

I love Dr. Krcal's bedside manner, and the fact that he does not talk down to his patients. He listens and does not judge. I like to joke (sense of humor is vital when you have very long-term chronic pain), and Dr. Krcal has a great sense of humor, but knows when all seriousness is needed. I highly recommend him.

There was an issue with the way he prescribed a medication that had to be cleaned up by another doctor.. That scared me. I really did not feel like he listened, I felt likehe was talking down to me rather than working as a team.
