I have been going to Dr. Kruse for almost 15 years. He's a dedicated physician, father and husband and really cares about his patients. Last year after a routine visit, he noticed an abnormality on my test panels and his follow up was excellent. He always sends the labs to me within 4 days with a personalized note (praise and sometimes scolding w words of encouragement and suggestions for life style changes. labs don't lie, unfortunately). If you are having problems with getting a returned call or an rx--I once had to elevate to the office manager, who is his former Medical Assistant--and they were right on it.
I absolutely love going to Dr. Kruse. I appreciate the amount of time that he spends listening to my questions. He checks me from head to toe during my yearly visit. Any test results are viewed by him and he either sends a comment with results or calls as soon as information is received by him. His nurse is always very professional. I have never had a long wait. I sometimes do not appreciate the people who greet me at the office, but it is worth that problem to see Dr. Kruse.
