Dr Fredric had been excellent.
Excellent doctor! Keeps the big picture in mind, excellent dialogue, provides expertise in an accessible fashion, very open to questions on any health topic.
Dr. Kraemer is super. He takes time to explain everything. He talks to my wife, great attitude and fun to be with.
Dr. Kraemer is kind & thorough in his explanation & recommendations.
Excellent physician.
Dr. Kraemer is a magnificent care provider. He cares about people & is very nice.
I hope the residents who shadow for Dr. Kraemer know what an excellent physician he is - caring, patient, knowledgeable of "patients" emotional issues how to 'listen' and be supportive & not dismissive of my failures. I always feel like he's not giving up on me, and that helps me to move forward.
Been with prof.Kraemer for long time 15 years.
It is very good.
I like Dr. Kraemer, but I would prefer a doctor who is up-to-date with current diabetes advances and care - (maybe younger).
Perfect -
His hours are limited, another doc w/more availability is better for a newer patient.
Excellent service for many years.
