Dr. Kruse to the time to listen to myself as well as my son. He explained the situation very well to the point we understood what exactly he was discussing. Additionally, he even called me the next day to see how my son was doing. I greatly appreciate everything he is doing for my son.

Was horribly cruel and mean to myself and my daughter. He made her cry. He was unwilling to listen to all we had been through previously. IT's not a cut and dry fracture he is useless.

When others had difficulty treating a break on the growth plate, Dr. Kruse took care of it with ease. He has a great personality and is wonderful with children.
