I was quite pleased.

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.
