Patient Ratings

Dr. Krebs made it where I could move my arm again. I had shoulder surgery about two weeks ago and I have no scars and no pain. He is a really good doctor.

Dr. Krebs is an amazing doctor. He did surgery on my husband a few times and we haven't found another doctor that we liked as much as him so we will follow him everywhere he goes. He's amazing, he explains stuff. Really a great amazing doctor and he knows what he's doing - that's what I like.

Dr. Krebs has done three successful surgeries on me, one on each hand and one when I broke the top bone in my shoulder. They have all been successful. He is professional and approachable.
