Patient Comments (16)
in Piscataway, NJ |
Flexible scheduling, excellent staff, and most importantly Dr. Kraus himself is terrific. I completely trust his judgment and diagnoses and would not see anyone else. The Warren and Edison offices are both convenient but even if they weren't it's worth the trip to get top notch care.
in Edison |
Superb physician and staff.
Edison, NJ |
Terrific doctor, caring and good listener. Dr. Kraus will not push you out of the office after a 5 minute visit like SO may others I am sick of. He is very conscientious and smart, which matters a lot in my book. The office management is so helpful, too.
in Warren, NJ |
Really excellent, a true gentleman and scholar. It took a lot for us to trust someone to do surgery on my son who's had recurring tonsil and apnea problems since he was a toddler. I am so grateful we went with Dr. Kraus. Smart, kind, and most importantly excellent surgeon and all-around doctor.
in Edison, NJ |
Excellent doctor and great all-around person.
in Watchung, NJ |
I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Kraus to everyone I know who needs an ENT doctor. He is so experienced, smart, kind, and I really know he is putting me the patient first. I wish he could be my doctor for everything.
Mooresville, NC |
Worst experience in my 50+ years of life. Never said a word what was wrong, or what he was going to do. He kept telling me to come back every 3 days, who has the money or time to do this when the issue was not going away or getting better. Place is dirty. Never changed the plastic cap to look into my ears. Was disgusted. Will never step foot in his office again.
in Warren, NJ |
Good diagnostician and really knows the difference between different antibiotics, which is a serious thing depending on the infection. Too bad it took me 6 months to find him (and taking the wrong stuff) but finally am "cured" and while annoyed at so much wasted time also relieved to have a real doctor, scholar, clinical expert. I recommend to all my friends and family- even my fragile mom. He is so good with her.
in Watchung, NJ |
Warm and really good listener. Takes a lot of notes and actually thinks before he talks which is rare, sorry to say
in Ossining, NY |
Simply put..one of the most caring, astute and informative of doctors.
in Warren, NJ |
Dr. Kraus is terrific. I wish I found him before now with all my sinus trouble, but better late than never.
in Piscataway, NJ |
I took my father for an appointment with Dr. Kraus and was so impressed that I asked him about my own ENT and sinus problems. He kindly fit me in for a full appointment that day and spent more time determining the cause of symptoms than any doctor before. Truly expert in his field. I later learned he completed prestigious residency in NYC but he is so kind and down-to-earth. I will take both my parents to Dr. Kraus from now on--and myself of course.
in Warren, NJ |
I was referred to Dr. Kraus by another specialist in Manhattan. He is excellent...listens and asks questions, spends a lot of time with patients. He laid out all my options and was very clear and compassionate. I decided to go ahead with a surgery and so glad I did. Outstanding surgeon, diagnostician, and person.
in Green Brook, NJ |
Dr. Kraus is the most thoughtful, patient, and competent doctor I have found for ENT. He takes the time to make the right diagnosis- not just jump to surgery or antibiotics after a 5 minute visit like most docs. In this era of mass corporate medicine he is truly a rare breed... an individual who listens to his patients and has the expertise to treat-- not just shove you out the door when your time is up. Would never go to another ENT except him.
in Scotch Plains, NJ |
Completely unprofessional. The reason for the appt was to obtain a second opinion on treatment of injuries sustain in an accident. Late for appt. After given opinion of further treatment, he ranted for in excess of 10 minutes about how I am the reason the world is horrible, etc, etc
in Bayonne, NJ |
Simply one of the best doctors in the world. I drive to his offices from Hudson county and don't mind waiting to be seen if the office backed up. It is a small sacrifice for a possibility to be treated by the great specialist!
