Dr. Kraus is a life saver

Dr. Kraus was a angel sent to us. My husband was diagnosed with thyroid cancer 21 years ago. We were very young, only married a year. He took my husband right away, now it seems these doctors send people for a million consulations and delay scheduling surgery. He explained the cancer to us and our options. He has a warmth about him he makes you feel comfortable in a very upsetting situation. My husband was basically cut across the throat, almost ear to ear and there is absolutely no speck of a scar. Some doctors can be butchers, not him. My husband still speaks quite highly of him to this day. As do I, he saved me from becoming a young widow. I could never thank him enough for saving my husband.

Excellent Surgeon

I would highly recommend Dr. Kraus. Not only is he an excellent skilled surgeon, he has compassion which is rare in doctors. He loves what he does and wants every outcome to be a success. He removed my thryoid due to suspicous cancer which turned out to be cancer. He is careful and does not rush his surgeries. He will take as long as he has to, to do the job right. Dont listen to any of the negative comments on this website. If you need a head or neck surgeon, dont hesitate to make an appointment.

Dennis Kraus is an excellent diagnostician. He instills confidence in his patients and has a strong reputation. The problem is that he has few successes. Removing as much as the cancer as he can, if that is a measure of success, well then he achieves that goal. But then he prescribes chemo which buys a little time until the cancer rears it's ugly head a year or so later and he perpetuates the same tx. He cuts away again, makes new promises of success and never achieves the cure. When will these Doctors take more responsibility? Stop perpetuating treatments that don't work, making terrible false promises and causing astronomic pain and suffering.
