Dr. Kraemer saved my life. I was diagnosed with Colon Cancer in 1999 and Dr. Kramer preformed my debulking surgery shortly after my diagnoses. He gave me new hope! I would recommend Dr. 100%.

My husband received care for recurring diverticulitis. Surgery, post surgery care and review of patient status was caring and thoroughly explained. I would highly recommend his care for surgery or diagnosis in his specialty.

Was to have surgery and when I got there, the doctor was in a terrible mood. Chastised me and had absolutely no sympathy for my condition or pain. No surgery and sent me home with a 300.00 cream.
