Five Stars

I had my very first colonoscopy with Dr Kratz, and could not be happier about the experience. He's really calm and personable, which was super-helpful in the situation. I'd recommend him (and his staff!) without reservation to anyone considering having a similar procedure. I did expect that I'd want to forget about the colonoscopy as soon as I could afterwards, and instead I came away with the weird notion that I had just met a number of people I'd love to spend more time with.

Excellent Physician For Colon/Rectal Issues

Was very professional and effective, explained everything to my satisfaction, and treated me expertly with no hint of awkwardness or embarassment (on either side) that could easily occur with these types of conditions.

Kind, Professional & Knowledgeable

Dr. Kratz is amazing! I had to have an in-office procedure done initially and then surgery. He was excellent for both. He always took the time to listen to my concerns, answer all of my questions and thoroughly explain what my options were. During the in-office procedure he was extremely gentle and made sure I was comfortable and knew what to expect. I needed to have my surgery scheduled quite quickly and he was so accommodating. Being that this was my first surgery I was extremely nervous. He came early and answered any questions I had and really made me feel at ease. He was patient and kind and even waited till the anesthesia wore off to explain that everything went well and to see if I had any questions or concerns. I had to have numerous follow up visits and he was always gentle and never made me feel rushed. He is a wonderful doctor and excellent at what he does.

Worst Doctor Ever

I went to visit this doctor and he didn't care at all if I was there. I've had hemorrhoid for two months that really need attention. He basically told me to come back in three weeks and he can't do anything. I ask if I can get something and basically told me nothing to just wait three weeks and call him. I walked off upset. I won't waste my money on this sympathetic person.
