Super short wait time. This doctor is blunt and to the point. He’s not afraid to tell you when you’re misunderstanding a symptom. Only my first appointment with him, however, he is my second opinion doctor and he’s already done morefor me that the last doctor. So far, so good.

Office staff great, especially dealing with aged men, like myself. Shame that the system forces the practice to maintain super amount of paperwork. My problem was well explained to me by Dr Cramer and my 90 day prescription for nasal spraywas renewed with NO work on my side. Great visit for me, especially NO additional visit required.

Too often we only review things when we have a negative experience... I feel compelled to review the absolutely stellar experience I had today with Dr. Cramer. First, the receptionist was very nice and I was seen right away. Dr. Cramercame in within 2 minutes of me seeing a nurse to have my vitals checked (I know because they put timers on the exam room doors to ensure timeliness). Dr. Cramer was very calming and relatable during the whole exam, explaining what he was doing and why. When he discussed his diagnosis with me, it was a conversation, not a dictation, and he presented all of the options for care, allowing me to ask questions along the way. He was explicitly clear that these treatments were ultimately my decision, but he was happy to provide his recommendation when I asked him for it. Together, we decided on the best path forward and how to treat my conditions. It was great and markedly unlike most doctor visits I've had. I cannot recommend Dr. Cramer enough.

The office was, overall, impersonal. So was Dr. Cramer, who made little eye contact, misread which ear was giving me trouble, and said nothing beyond the basic medical questions. He explained nothing. He was out in under 5 minutes. I dealtwith about seven different people in the course of my stay. The instructions about follow-up testing at the end of the session were confusing and should have been given me in writing.

Dr. L. Cramer spent time with me. He grasped my ENT concerns quickly, reviewed my intake statements, history, ran tests right in the office and returned with the data. He then established a plan [allowing me a fair share ofinput]. He even uncovered a small, technical, mistake in a test interpretation (other ENT's data) permitting me an avenue for a chance at an alternate approach and explained it all in layman's terms. He may be hard to get in a hurry, but he's worth the wait! I had time for a preliminary ENT's course of action [easier to get scheduled quickly but plodding and typically more interested in his bottom line than the patient] while awaiting Dr. C's schedule, but that proved useful for paving the way, allowing Cramer to hit the ground running. Choose the location, make the appt, [i used zocdoc] THEN get something else done [to help him help you] while you wait for your time with him.... Streamlined office, helpful office staff, assistants not complaining about your bringing them paperwork, and of course, a professional atmosphere. He's well connected to higher-tiered specialists should that be determined to be appropriate for you. Dr. Cramer doesn't seem as if he overfills his schedule with patients just for the bottomline, but gave me a sense that he cares about his patients concerns, and health, given the generous time he spent with me..

This was my first visit and I had a lot of information to provide and I appreciated that Dr. Cramer listened and carefully examined the issues at hand. I did not feel rushed. I was also able to receive some testswhile I was in the office and everything ran efficiently. I appreciated that I was able to get so much accomplished in one visit and now have a home for future checkups and handling of future problems.

The only feedback I would provide is that the doctor office update the site and/or cards with the building the office is in. As a first timer, I did not know the doctor's office was in a different building. The addresstook me to the Bryn Mawr hospital, and said suite 300, but did not say, North Building, South Building, or Art Pavillion Building (this is it). It would have been nice to know that information up front or by way of the reminder call which I did receive. Thanks
