I’ve had 3 procedures with Dr. Krims. They were all painless and comfortable. His nurses are very attentive and the anesthesiologist was personable and trustworthy. Dr. Krims explains what he found after the procedures in a private room. He’s obviously experienced and skilled. The practice is very busy but he spends as much time as you need for questions. The nursing staff calls the next day to see how you’re feeling.

Dr Krims may have 40 years of experience but if he had 40 seconds of bedside manner he would be more successful than he is. He and his staff are condescending and unprofessional and discuss patient concerns out in the open in a dramatic way. After not getting instructions for a procedure I was treated as a liar. There was never a humble moment when they realized their staff may have accidentally forgotten to give the patient instructions but instead took a defensive tone

Dr. Krims was caring, professional, and knowledgeable about a procedure I had in his office today. He made a very uncomfortable situation very comfortable, not an easy task. I highly recommend him! Female/age 59
