I have find Dr Kruger to be an excellant doctor! Dr Kruger advocates on patient's behalf like no other doctor I have ever had as a patient. He is adamant patients receive first class care from his staff and will butt heads with insurance companies when needed. I also feel the staff members I have worked with have all been capable, caring individuals.

Dr. Kruger is wonderful doctor. I visited him on 2 occasions for 2nd opinions on 2 different matters. Both times he took time to thoroughly & clearly answer all questions. After my latest visit, I thought of an additional question that I called into the nurses voicemail and asked her to speak to him for me & return my call. Later that evening, up until 9:45 pm, the doc himself attempted to reach me leaving messages each time, unfortunately my phone was turned off. THIS is the type doctor he is.

I sure do wish he would have said that my mother had cancer since that's what she died of less than two months after he saw her. He obviously believed that she did have cancer based on the questions he asked and the tests he suggested. But not clearly giving her a diagnosis meant that he didn't give her any pain medicine. And she was in terrible pain. So glad we went elsewhere.

Dr. Kruger saved my life when I was in the Army at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center, Germany in 1992. S/P Desert Storm deployment. He fought to get me experimental drugs at the time that that were very helpful in the treatment of my Hodgkin's lymphoma. Dr. Kruger went to bat for me several times when he did not have to. All my thanks to him I'm still kickin.
