This doctor was very detail-oriented, reviewed my previous records from another source and was very honest and knowledgeable with the feedback he provided. He was a bit humorous also which lessened my anxiety about the whole visit. I would highly recommend him if you need to see a Neurologist.

I first seen Dr.Krefft back in 1988. I had been been seriously injured when a 180lb steel plate struck me in the head. Dr.Krefft was actually the first doctor to test and diagnose my neck injury. I had to have a C-3/4 fusion. I still fondly remember him. He was very professional and showed abundant compassion. Thanks doc. I highly recommend Dr.Krefft.
