My family and I--from adults to children--have been seeing Dr. Kramer for years now. Along with his efficient front office and kind staff, Dr. Kramer has been a key component to the high quality medical care that's improved our lives here in San Diego. Also, Dr. Kramer just performed a turbinectomy and septoplasty on me, and results have been remarkable. Whatever started Dr. Kramer on the road to being a skilled surgeon, I'm thankful for that road he's taken. He's truly one of the best in his field.

Dr. Kramer treated me in 2011 for partial hearing loss and also for sleep apnea. His professionalism and his manner with me as a patient were exemplary. I especially appreciated his conservative approach to treating these disorders. For my hearing problem he did not recommend surgery because the condition of my inner ear was already too deteriorated. So we went with a hearing aid. I liked his honesty in this matter. On the other hand the sleep apnea problem was surgically treatable and he did a wonderful job. Now my sleep situation is much improved and I have avoided the strange machines and devices about which we hear so many bad reports. Special mention is due to his awesome staff. The hospital mishandled their part of the billing to my insurance company (which would have cost me thousands) and Dr. Kramer’s staff made an amazing effort in order to get it successfully resolved. I would recommend Dr. Kramer without any reservations.

Truly a Blessing

Dr. Kramer was a blessing. Not a doctor who just sees a customer as dollar bill signs. I drove to San Diego from Arizona and it was worth the trip! He was very direct with my medical issue and the operation went great!
