I'm so happy my physician referred me to Dr. Kroeker, when they discovered a large growth on my thyroid and I needed to have a full thyroidectomy. Needless to say I was terrified! Dr. Kroeker was so patient with me and all my questions, as well as with my concerned family. She and her staff were always there for me by telephone or scheduling me right away. My surgery went extremely well this past April and you can't even see where the incision was!! Dr. Kroeker is the best!!

I dealt with Dr. Kroeker over several months as we monitored a growth on my thyroid. I always knew that I was in the best of hands. She gave me the benefit of her knowledge and expertise, but the decisions were always clearly mine. When it was time to have surgery, the entire experience was positive. Not only is Dr. Kroeker an excellent surgeon, but she also clearly cares about her patients. I can’t remember ever being more pleased with my medical care.

I strongly recommend Dr. Teresa Kroeker. She is a Fellowship Trained Endocrine Head and Neck surgeon with significant thyroid cancer experience. Dr. Kroeker exhibited tremendous depth of knowledge, attention to detail, patience and warmth. The surgery was more complex than expected due to how the cancer had grown. Fortunately, I was under the care of a masterful surgeon with the experience needed to manage such a complex surgery, therefore the outcome and recovery was extremely successful.

Dr. Kroeker performed a total thyroidectomy on me in Nov 2016. I cannot recommend her enough. She is a caring physician who listens to her patients and always "goes the extra mile!" Her office is efficient and well run with a very caring staff as well. Dr. Kroeker made me feel at ease and took the time to answer every question I had and was always available when I needed her most. She is a phenomenal person and physician. I couldn't have trusted anyone more with my surgery!

Dr. Kroeker was very kind, caring, patient, skilled and knowledgeable. She explained things in an easy to understand manner and in good detail. I felt like no question was too small and that my health was of the utmost importance to her. She helped me make a difficult decision, to have surgery. My surgery went great, and my scar is barely noticeable after just 3 weeks. I have a great deal of confidence in her and recommend her highly. Her office is well run and organized.

I appreciated Dr. Kroeker's analytical approach to sharing information and essential elements of the decision-making process. She made it easy for me to make the right decision. Throughout the process, Dr. Kroeker made herself personally available to answer questions and address concerns. In my experience, this is a rarity and greatly appreciated! Thanks to Dr. Kroeker the surgery was executed flawlessly, and I am on the road to recovery. I highly recommend Dr. Kroeker!

What a fantastic physician!! Best in class for sure. Back in October, I was referred to Dr. Kroeker for a Thyroid nodule?it turned out to be Stage 1 in the left lobe. Dr. Kroeker?s pragmatic, informative view allowed us to look at options which enabled her to remove this lobe and keep the other. As of today, this lobe is fully functioning. Through this process, Dr. Kroeker was transparent and compassionate, allowing us to evaluate best options for my circumstances. No rush?and with my be

Dr. Kroeker is an amazing surgeon and she has a wonderful caring personality. I trusted her completely with the total thyroidectomy and central neck dissection that she performed due to papillary thyroid cancer. I had my after care at MD Anderson and all of my doctors there commented on the excellent job she did on my surgery. I would recommend her for excellent surgery skill and knowledge and for her very caring attitude. What a blessing she is to have in Austin!
