I ended up revisiting this doctor because I had missed my prior appt with a different practice and didn’t want another long wait period before I saw a doctor. It’d have been better to wait. Waiting time at this office is ridiculous. If you don’t have anything to do with your day then this is the office for you. Astoundingly, no social distancing is practiced as office is jam packed!!! Disgusting! 9:15 appt and it’s currently 9:51 and still not seen. Lady ahead of me has 9 am appt and still has a ‘couple’ people ahead of her. Greed at its finest.

As others have mentioned the wait time for a scheduled appointment can be more than an hour because he over books. In addition my husband was scheduled for MOHS Surgery, but Dr Krathan just excised the cancer spot and then had his staff close up the huge incision. That’s not MOHS which means taking a layer at a time till you get a clean biopsy. We won’t be going back to him.

I am super happy with the care and outcome of my procedure that took place on July 31, 2019. Dr. Krathen and his staff were very professional, but still very personal and caring. At all times, I felt comfortable and cared for. From the staff at the front office to the staff who assist the Doctor, they all seemed to be happy to be at work and happy to help me. Dr. Krathen did a wonderful job on my leg during the Moh's Surgery. I was worried about the scarring, but I am pleased to say that it appears that it will be minimal. I am also blown away that I received a call from the Doctor himself the next day to check to see how I was doing and if I had any questions. This is almost unheard of, and I find this to be the best Customer Service that I have received in years! I would highly recommend Dr. Krathen and his entire team!

The office staff has no respect for the patients. The doctor is great, but that is it.

Great doctor and humanitarian. He stood by me through thick and thin, very professionally. Many wealthy doctors will dump you at a drop of the hat. This man stands by his patients like the Hippocratic oath dictated. Amazing diamond in the rough these days. Mr. Winship

Don't go to this doctor if you value your privacy. He REQUIRES you to provide your Social Security Number - even if you have a valid drivers license and insurance. My son and I made an appointment and waited, filled out the patient forms and insurance information then they told us they would not provide treatment without our SSNs. They couldn't tell me why; only it was their "policy".
