I"ve been a patient of Dr. Kraus for 25 years and will not go to another Urologist. He is a little energetic, but he does give you the time you need to have anything explained. His office staff is great and the nurse Maria is also a joy to work with. Never a problem with my buddy Stan.....

I was never taken in on time for my appointments, the last time I waited over a half hour. Dr. Kraus did not spend much time with me, and I didn't feel he was giving me enough information. The office staff didn't notify me when a urine culture came back positive for a UTI, and they also failed to notice that the order for my 24 hour urine test didn't go through. Both times I discovered this when calling the office back. I would not recommend him.
