July 29, 2016

I was quite pleased.

July 29, 2016

I find Dr. Krakow and the entire staff very efficient, professional and kind. I monitor my blood pressure and mail my numbers to the office and someone will call me immediately with feedback and messages from the doctor. Of all the doctors I see, I find this office to be the most responsive. I appreciate the skill and feel very comfortable and safe.

July 29, 2016

The office is efficient. I never have to wait more than five minutes to see the doctor. Dr. Krackow treats my A FIB with medications and has me in for check ups twice a year or more if necessary. He has my heart rate under control and I feel fine.

another excellent exam - routine follow up for high blood pressure, etc.

this is how all professional offices should be. With care and concern.

This care provider basically saved my life almost four years ago by his diagnosis of my heart condition at that time.
