Dr. Krause just performed a tonsil and adenoid removal in my 5-year old son on 7/19/17. He did an amazing job and we had not one drop of old or new blood. He also put a numbing gel where he removed tissues and the first 2 days after surgery were a breeze. Which helped us get him hydrated comfortable and fed. He also was prompt in email and phone calls. He has performed more than 1,000 of these surgeries in the past 15 years. He is a great surgeon.

Dr. Krause saw my 14 year old son for a broken nose. He adjusted the broken bone and gave very good advice and information. His office got us in quickly, and the doctor was professional, courteous, flexible, and effective. He made sure that we understood that he was available for future adjustments, should we see the need once the swelling went down.

Dr Krause performed emergency surgery at Dominican hospital on an out of control tooth abscess that had taken over my face and neck. He explained my condition and the procedure at every step, was very kind, and treated me with respect. I think he really cares about his patients and it shows with the quality of his work. I cannot recommend him enough.

Arrogant and condescending. Look elsewhere for empathy or any real listening.
