A good listener who gives good advice and cares about his patients. Although it is not mentioned here I believe he also specializes in cardiology.
I recommend D. KRUSE to all my friends. There is no better doctor around. He cares about his patients and takes time to speak to his patients. This is a man who loves practicing medicine, come up with a perfect diagnosis and treatment plan. Not a money making machine. Go see for youself

Three of my closest friends are doctors, so I know a lot about medicine and how how widely doctors can vary in their capabilities, professionalism, competence, dedication and "bedside manner." Dr. Torsten Kruse was my primary Physician several years ago until he moved to Mission Heritage, which wasn't part of my medical plan. When I turned 65 and enrolled in Medicare, I was THRILLED to learn that Dr. Kruse was again available to me. He is the best out there!
