Just had my second spine surgery by Dr. Kraemer. I am still recovering but I already feel 100% better. My problem seems to be totally gone. Dr. Kraemer is very patient and caring. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Kraemer and his staff are amazing. I was misdiagnosed for the last 2 years, and after seeing Dr. Kraemer, he was able to identify the root cause of my pain and scheduled me right away. . I was scheduled to have surgery then 18 prior to surgery, received news insurance wouldn't cover it. Dr. Kraemer not only sacrificed time with his family, he went to bat for me in the peer to peer review for the insurance appeal. Within 30 sec I was approved and had my surgery the following day.

He is a very excellent Dr. Not only is he concerned about his patient, but the family also. When I had my first surgery, he called my daughter and talked to her himself! I definitely recommend Dr Kraemer for your spine needs. He’s the BEST!!

If you are looking for an Orthopedic Surgeon then I would say look no further. Dr. Kreamer is the best! Don't try with anyone else or in the end you will have to come to Dr. Kreamer to fix it later like what happened to my Mother. I wish we knew about Dr. Kreamer before my mother had the botched back surgery by another physician. Mom's 1st surgery she was in the hospital for over 1 week & in rehab for a month and in terrible pain. With Dr. Kreamer mom was in the hospital for less then a week.

This rating is heavily influenced by Dr. Paul Kraemer's office & staff. I have had roughly 3 appointments with Dr. Paul Kraemer. While Dr. Kraemer himself is pleasant & helpful, his office/staff is ATROCIOUS. When I called for my most recent appointment, it took a week to even speak with anyone who could schedule an appointment. It took another 20+ days to see him for an appt. His nurses & office staff can be rude & unclear on the phone. It's very upsetting and I'm looking for a new doctor.

Dr. Kraemer told me I needed surgery and would be very happy a year later. Now I am in constant and severe pain and all the other specialists tell me he should've never performed surgery on me. I am hoping to find someone to fix me now that Dr. Kraemer shrugged his shoulders and discharged me.

I highly recommend Dr Kraemer and the entire ISG team. From my first visit through my post surgery recovery (still in progress) Dr Kraemer walked me through the options and there was no rush to surgery. I appreciated his thoroughness and time he spent with me. The surgery itself went much better than I could have anticipated. I recommend Dr Kraemer to anyone.

Very competent, fully shared with me all the details of the procedure and what to expect. Checked on me every day and would listen to me and would answer my concerns. His entire stall were very friendly and attentive to my needs and concerns. Extremely friendly.
