The staff at check-in, as well as the person who walked us back to the examination room, was very friendly. warm, and welcoming. Dr, Krebsbach, while friendly, seemed very quick and almost rushed. I did not feel as if he wasopen to having a full conversation. I felt as though many of the questions that he asked, he had already formulated what he felt was going to be the answer in his mind, so he wasn't fully listening. I don't think he meant any harm by it. He was probably just trying to manage his patient load. I just was hoping for a different experience.

After I filled out a questionnaire, I was taken to an examination room, where a nurse discussed with me the nature of my problem. Then, I was sent for an X-Ray. After that, the doctor came in, looked at the X-Ray,and recommended a proper treatment for my condition. I was out of the office in less than an hour.

Dr. Kresbach explained everything in a confident manner and explained all of our available options. Dr. Kresbach did not want to ruch into any surgical procedure before trying multiple modalities to help relieve the discomfort. Thank you Dr. Kresback for your kind and gentle manner.

Visit was good, but after I made the appt, the office called and left a message to call th back to confirm my Wed/11:30 appt. I called back left a message to confirm my appt. Next I received email and textto remind me, which I like. The day of the appt I received another call confirming my appt for a different day and time and staff insisted they spoke with me. Next time I will make my appt on the phone to avoid any confusion

It was excellent. This was my second visit. The first was with regard to a trigger finger, which he handled successfully. The second and current visit today had to do with a swollen ankle which was diagnosed to my complete satisfaction.I was able to make this appointment in one day on the computer. There was no wait in the office and the diagnosis was quick, complete and accurate. The doctor himself is no-nonsense, on the top of his game. 10 out of 10. I was home in 30 minutes.

Competent, easy to communicate with. As almost all docs today, Dr. Krebsbach doesn't have a single moment of time for any "bedside manner". I am old enuf to remember when physicians were healers, not just technicians. As a medical practitioner myself, I understand it, but I still don't like it.

The entire experience was a good one, from the time I checked in, my interactions with the administrative staff, medical team, and Doctor, until checking out. No one likes to go to the doctor, but if you need to, having a pleasant professional experience like I had made it palatable.
