Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Spine surgery wasn’t a success. But that happens. Was treated like I was radioactive when I asked follow up consult. Very disappointing.

Rude. Didn’t show me my films/MRI. Told me there was nothing that could be done. So I went elsewhere and had very successful back surgery 5 years ago.

I had no problem with Dr. Krauss as my surgery resolved my most acute problem. However I developed new problem and after seven months have not been able to get an appointment to see him again. Why does he say he is taking new patients when he will not see previous patients.

Dr Krauss and his surgical team are among the best of the best. I had the opportunity to have a lumbar spine fusion and decompression. He and his nurses Diane were kind, caring and the results exemplary. Orlan Jackson, DO

A life saver - performed two syrinx surgeries that stopped progression of paralysis each about 10 years apart. Could not locate such a surgeon in Michigan. He can seemed reserved but his skills make up for that. Would not hesitate to recommend him to others in their time of trouble. Believe he is one of the reasons Mayo is ranked number 1 in Nuerosurgery in the United States.
