I appreciate Dr. Kreth taking the time to talk to me as well as listen. He has a gentle smile that is relaxing & puts me at ease. He explains things thoroughly & let's me ask questions. I am glad he is my cardiologist.

I have been a patient of Dr. Kreth for awhile now. When I have an appointment I have been given several reminders and instructions, which is greatly appreciated. The staff at his office is very thorough and very attentive. I have never had to wait long to be called or seen. When with Dr. Kreth he does not hurry me along but takes the time to be sure any issues or questions are answered. I would definitely recommend Dr. Kreth to anyone in need of a Cardiologist.

Dr Kreth is one of the best doctors I have had in my long life.
in Mount Juliet, TN |
I didn't have to wait long in the waiting room, which is always a plus. The nurses were efficient and polite. Dr. Kreth didn't keep me waiting long at all. In my opinion figured out what was wrong very fast, I can't say the same as my regular doctors who should've picked up on this w/o all the senseless testing I had to go through.

Dr. Kreth is wonderful. Two years ago helped save my life. Last year he again corrected a heart issued and this year with additional medication I will life a great life. I am extremely grateful and blessed to have Dr. Kreth in my life.

I have been a patient of Dr. Kreth for about 10 years. Needless to say, I am very pleased with his care and attention or I would not have stayed with him this long. He always has time to talk to me and explain my tests, etc. He treats me with the utmost respect and does not rush in and out. He takes time to be sure I am comfortable with explanations before I leave. The whole staff is friendly and treat you like they are glad to see you. The office is always clean, tidy and comfortable.

Dr. Kreth was one part of a fantastic emergency team at summit hospital. Without going into all that happened, suffice it to say the whole team played a part in saving my life 11 yrs ago. Dr Kreth's part was to find the heart blockage and take care of it . Which I think he did spectacurally! Since that day 11 yrs ago he has been my cardiologist. His office staff are as good at their jobs as he is at his! His nursing staff has always been courteous and professional. a top notch dr & person!

Dr. Kreth saw me immediately when I needed to be seen and did not hesitate to refer me to another physician when he thought it was appropriate. I have complete faith and trust in his judgment and abilities.

Dr Kreth was very understanding and since he had been my sister's Dr. when she had heart problems I felt very confident going to see him. He explained everything to me that they would be doing when running my tests.
