Dr. Kratz is the best ! He is very down to earth, personable, and easy to communicate with. He explains what I need to know and is very thorough with his exams and proceedures performed. He has been my colon healthcare provider for many years and I wouldn't go anywhere else for this type of care. I strongly recommend Dr. Kratz !

Dr Kratz is rad. I'm was referred to him after a history of IBS that left me with bleeding internal hemorrhoids, agonizing recurrent fissures, and embarrassing large external skin tags. Dr. Kratz is super sympathetic. After doing several bandings for internal hemorrhoids, I decided to have the tags and fissure area removed, a procedure with a very painful recovery. He did a great job and made me feel comfortable throughout. Also easy to get appointments with, and not too much wait. Thank you!!!

My husband's visit with Dr. Kratz was painful and unhelpful. Dr. Kratz informed my husband that he would be needing surgery with no empathy. He then cancelled the surgery to take time off. We're panicking, trying to find another surgery.

Was referred to Dr. Kratz by another Dr. Found Dr. Kratz not interested in what I was going through and the pain that I had for 4 months. Doesn't not communicate well to the patient.. Wrote out a $90.00 compound cream - [that I'd been using for 2+months & wasn't 'working' !!], and referred me to P.T and wouldn't tell me why he was sending me there [they'll explain it to you.. REALLY [??!!] Would Never recommend this Dr.-- Arrogant - [& must have been absent for 'bedside manner' class]
