Awesome visit with Dr. Kramer! I felt comfortable speaking with her, and she explained everything in great detail. The office was excellent; easy to find, clean, stocked with great teas and coffee. Plus, the staff was warm and welcoming. I highly recommend Dr. Kramer.
Dr. Kramer was honestly a great doctor. She explained everything in detail, we shared a few laughs and she was very easy to talk to. She also was very prompt with telling me the next steps of what we need to do to get our problem solved. The nurses at the desk were so nice, also! Great visit overall.
Wish every doctor was like Dr. Kramer!
Dr. Kramer and her entire staff were excellent and exceeded all expectations.
The visit is efficient and the solution and follow ups are well thought out with a high level of personal attention.
Everyone needs a Dr. Kramer. Dr. Kramer is nothing short of phenomenal. She is thorough and takes the time to listen to a patient's concerns while getting to understand the patient as a person. Her thoroughness reinforces not only the idea she genuinely cares, but also that she is a master in her field. I felt immediately comfortable in her presence and just as comfortable after I left the office, as she took the time to explain my tests/results to me. I would recommend her to anyone. She is by far a rarity and I feel grateful to have been seen by her. Thank you Dr. Kramer!
Dr. Kramer was such a wonderful doctor! She was very knowledgeable and made me feel comfortable within minutes of meeting her.
Doctor Kramer is a wonderful human being and a great doctor! She is very supportive, patient, tolerant and listens to her patients! Stage 3 cancer is a scary thing by itself, and Doctor Kramer was willing to observe the progress of an alternative treatment and be the support and advice provider in a serious fight for health. Doctor Kramer is emotional, professional and nice, this is from Svetlana and Boris, who felt right away from the first appointment that we will stay with Doctor Kramer for further observation and treatment. GOD BLESS YOU DOCTOR KRAMER!!! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
Dr. Kramer was amazing. I was very nervous going in for my diagnosis and she was hilarious and knowledgeable and definitely put me at ease. I will 100% go back to her with any hematology issues that I have!
Wonderful! ... very thorough, professional, with a great bedside manner.
Dr. Kramer bedside manner is great! Her staff is courteous and helpful. My appt was prompt and I was out of the office less than an 1hr. She was very reassuring and answering alot of my questions. She put me at ease. I am glad I found her based on zoc doc reviews.

I would highly recommended this doctor. She took time with me, and explained everything.
I don't I have ever been more excited to see a doctor. I look forward to her thorough and informational visits and feel like my health is in the best hands!
My visit with Dr. Kramer was excelllent. She took the time to actually review my medical records and discuss my concerns. She was very friendly and extremely knowledgeable. (Because most doctors don't encounter patients with alpha thalassemia trait, I am used to explaining it to my doctors, but she understood all the nuances of my case right off the bat.). I wish all doctors were like her!
Dr. Kramer was attentive and really explained my results. I would highly recommend her.
She's one of the best doctors I have been to and I've seen a lot of doctors, and that's an understatement. If you need someone who is level headed, personable, and Direct, she's the real deal. The office staff and office space are as wonderful as she is. could not be happier to trek from downtown in fidi to her practice. She's amazing!
Dr. Kramer is very lovely and friendly. It's amazing to talk to her. Her positive vibes can make a day. She's very professional and adorable.
Absolutely HILARIOUs doctor! Was very thorough and I look forward to the next time I see her.
Wonderful bed side manner. Very smart and informative
Very professional and pleasant.
Fabulous! Called before the appt to validate something on my intake email from Zocdoc, then when I was there she looked at my records and did a blood draw right on the spot.
There is nothing bad I can say about Rachel Kramer. She is unbelievable and every review you read on here is an understatement to the testament of what a wonderful doctor she is. She is caring, professional, fun, smart as a whip and just "gets it". A true gem.
Great doctor and easy to chat with. She's personable and professional and gives you the time of day to discuss your issues. As someone who has seen and worked with my fair share of physicians, it's very rare to have those combination. I'm glad I found her!
Dr Kramer is a concerned thorough knowledgeable and empathetic person Probably one of the best doctors I have ever met
Dr Kramer, facility and staff were great. Waited about 10 minutes from appointment time. Dr. Kramer is very down to earth, thorough and cares! I learned a lot and have been in touch with her since my visit via email with prompt responses. I highly recommend!
Dr Kramer was wonderful! She listened thoroughly, gave clear information, and eased my concerns.
Dr. Kramer was very professional and took the time out to rxplain why she was doing what she was doing. Then took the time to explain what the next steps were and how we would proceed. Excellent environment, professional staff-highly recommend!
It was my first time there and I got through in less that 15mins. The facility ia very clean and presentable and the staffs are very professional. Dr. Kramer was also very professional and prompt with her information. I left there feeling less worried than when I first got there.
Dr. Kramer was absolutely amazing. She is honestly the best doctor I have been to. She is so easy to talk to and really cares about your well being. I went into the appointment with a lot of anxiety and she eased the anxiety immediately. I would recommend her to anyone that needs to a see a doctor in her specialty.
Great listener and very knowledgeable and personable.
Amazing!!! Dr Kramer is the best of the best. Her new office on York Ave is lovely and the staff, such a pleasure.
Dr. Kramer was extremely personable with excellent bedside manner. She was extremely thorough in her evaluation.
I was extremely nervous being referred to a hematologist and I cannot say how lucky am I to have met Dr. Kramer. She took her time with me, explained things to me clearly, and went so far back in my medical history she made me realize things about myself I never did before. The follow up was easy and the communication regarding my results and treatment is ongoing. If you need to see a hematologist, please, do yourself a favor and schedule an appointment with her. I am so grateful I did.
The doctor contacted me prior to the appointment to get informed about my condition and health records and that saved a lot of time in the actual appointment. She did not rush the visit and paid attention to my questions. She was upbeat, easy to talk to and honest. I would highly recommend her to anybody!
Amazing doctor with a wonderful ability to make you feel at ease. Warm & caring, thorough & knowledgable, I'm actually upset that I never have to be treated by her again (clean bill of health!). If all doctors were like Dr. Kramer, the world would be a better place!
At first i thought Dr Kramer to be quite friendly (first and second appts) as she makes herself very accessible through email and during appts, but I realized how unprofessional she is as a doctor and how defensive she is as a person. Initially the treatment went fine, but i ended up having questions when I did not feel well after several treatments and she was very defensive, told me it wasn't the treatment, and told me that I could go somewhere else that was "easier for me to get to" next time i was due for a test (I never said she was difficult for me to get to, for one). When I asked what I should do regarding how I felt, she didn't tell me to come in for a checkup, she told me to go see an internist, and to email her in a month. I have never been treated this way by a doctor before. She is not a bad person, but I *don't* trust her as a doctor, and the nurses there do not either (as she will tell you repeatedly, and as you will see yourself). She doesn't know how to have compassion and listening towards her patients if she feels devalued or threatened in some way. You can't be that way as a doctor, you have to be ready to answer questions and know where to direct your patients, and not act like it isn't your problem. Lesson learned, went to the doctor that my internist initially referred me to, whom was worth the wait and I am doing well now.
Dr. Kramer came out to the waiting room to get me as the phlebotomist was at lunch. She was extremely friendly, courteous and very attentive to everything I told her. It's obvious from my visit that she advocates very hard for her patients.
Dr. Kramer is an amazing Doctor. She is so thorough and caring. She arranged for me to have a test done and worked it out with their office so I can go see them immediately instead of having to return another day. She called me the next day to discuss my results with me. She made me feel very comfortable and love her sense of humor. I wish she was my primary Dr. Not too many like her.
Dr. Kramer is a highly qualified professional and was able to accurately and immediately diagnose a problem that I had taken to several other physicians without success. She communicated the rather complex diagnosis precisely and clearly so that anyone would understand it. She is also available to her patients for any questions they may have and she follows up diligently. I have had a few good physicians, but she is absolutely first-rate. It is such a relief to finally have this problem solved completely.
She's amazing. I wish all my doctors were so thorough and kind!
Amazing! Prior to my appt. Dr Kramer emailed me to get some basic information on my symptoms. I was taken into her office right away, and we chatted for a long time about my symptoms and how I felt before she did an exam. After meeting with her once, I have a better idea of what's going on with my body then after 3 months with a different hematologist. She is very nice and friendly, easy to talk to. The office is very nice as well, and the receptionist was very sweet. I wish I could have Dr. Kramer as my PCP! I would highly recommend her to anyone.
Dr Kramer is a smart, thoughtful, good humored and highly detailed physician. She makes what could easily be a less than appealing experience into a good one. I would wholeheartedly recommend both her, and the staff at this office.
She was a wonderful person to speak with. It was like talking to a friend. I got to my appointment 45 minutes early to fill out paperwork which doesn't take long to fill out as long as you have your information with you: insurance, preferred pharmacy, etc. They have a flat screen TV, candy, soda, and a Coffee Bar in the waiting room while you wait! It is a clean, modern, and aesthetically pleasing facilty. You won't feel like you're there to see a doctor! Everyone from the reception to the doctor, herself, is kind and nurturing. Don't be afraid to ask how to use the fancy coffee machine...I couldn't figure it out either! Lol.
She is very knowledgeable.down to earth.
Dr Kramer is fantastic, friendly and thorough! There was no wait; she spent a lot of time with me and answered all my questions. I cannot recommend her more highly
Dr. Kramer is a rare find – she is meticulous, knowledgeable, trustworthy and above all caring.. She is simply incredible! Highly recommend!
I consulted Dr. Kramer about a test result and she was incredibly thorough, easy to talk to, informative, professional yet friendly. I highly recommend her.
Superb! Thank you.
Dr. Kramer is sooooo nice and thoughtful. I went to see her for a second opinion of my lymph nodes problem, and I was not sure if it is her specialty. She emailed me beforehand to make sure and examined me very carefully during my visit. She is very helpful and professional.
Dr. Kramer was very attractive. I would recommend her to everyone.
Truly one of the best and most thorough doctors I have ever met in my life. Incredibly smart woman with a great demeanor and sense of humor. Highly recommended!
I am blessed and thankful to be a patient under the care of Dr. Rachel Kramer. For the past few years she has guided me, taught me, treated me. Her intelligence, concern, and thorough thoughtful approach catapult her to the head of the class. I value her clinical care and her friendly office visits.
What can I say... I truly adore Dr. Kramer?? She is incredibly sweet, kind and enormously caring.. From the very 1st visit , I felt very comfortable explaining my issue. I immediately started having treatment and started feeling ALIVE again. I would definetly continue seeing Dr.Kramer..
It was a pleasure meeting Dr. Kramer. She is very competent, personable and has excellent bedside manners. I highly recommend her.
Dr.Kramer asked a lot of questions about how I felt and what problems I was facing. She took notes while asking questions . She also reviewed medical report from my previous doctor. I liked that did not jump to the read the report but listened to my problems first and try to understand what problems I facing from me first. I absolutley loved my experience with Dr. Kramer.
She was absolutely amazing and gave me great insight as to what may be contributing to my mystery diagnosis. Coming from an anti-doctor family, she was definitely a breath of fresh air. Highly recommend her!
OMG! Where do I begin??!! Dr. Kramer was a god send to me, when I had almost given up hope. I work for one of the biggest medical facilities and no one in conjunction to outside providers could've helped me with my problem and Dr. Kramer did it and dit it well with care, humor and professionalism! She is awesomeness and would recommend her to anyone that is looking for care, concern, thoroughness and proper treatment! Thank you again Dr. Kramer and I will see you later rather than sooner!
Dr. Kramer is stellar in every way. She's caring, thorough, insightful, inquisitive, and really smart--all the things anyone wants in a doctor, especially when you're facing a mysterious set of medical circumstances. And I actually had fun during the visit--she's funny too!
I thought she asked all the right questions. I thought she had a great sense of humor which helps when you are trying to remain calm about your health problems, but I look forward to my next visit which may explain more. Some of my symptoms were related, yet others, not so much.
I have never written a ZocDoc review before, since 'meh' is kind of like the new good. I made this appointment based on other reviews I assessed here, but never did I expect them to be entirely accurate. I could go a step further, if glowing praise could possibly do that. Dr. Kramer is a precious rarity in the field of medicine, and from the beginning, when she warmly introduced herself and expressed how happy she was that I came (I was late. Yet she was entirely gracious and genuinely seemed to look forward to getting to the bottom of my medical problem). In summation, I have never been treated with such respect and humanity. Like others have mentioned, she is the most thorough physician I have ever encountered. Yes, she is brilliant but there is something deeply humane that motivates her inquiry. Her uncompromising ethical dedication is profoundly unparalleled. Despite feeling sickly as I came in, I felt better based on her mere demeanor alone. I found the doctor instantly, one of the most affable, witty, and compassionate people I have ever encountered. Can she been my primary care doctor? I would love that. I hope you do, too. If you care about your healthcare, look no further. To find her is a rarity--and for that I've been blessed.
Dr. Kramer was better than I could have expected. Her warm manner and determination to figure out what was wrong were unparalleled. No other doctor has taken the time to track my entire medical history to put together the pieces. Highly, highly recommended.
Extremely nice doctor who takes her time with her patients. I highly recommend!
What a refreshing doctor she is! She is informative and detailed and genuinely concerned. She is also very funny and incredibly down to earth. I enjoyed my visit with her and there should be more doctors like Dr. KRAMER.
Dr. Kramer was wonderful. She took a thorough history, exam, and was very reassuring. It's rare to find a doctor who is so personable and willing to take enough time with patients. I highly recommend her!
Dr. Kramer is AWESOME!!!! She has a great sense of humor, is incredibly intelligent, and is possessed of a wonderful bedside manner. I highly recommend her.
Very friendly staff and great doctor. I was seen right away, and Dr. Kramer took the time to sit with me and answer all my questions. I felt like she took the time to listen and really wanted me to feel better and find the right treatment for me.
Dr. Kramer changed my quality of life. I almost wish I could see her as my GP. I have never experienced such a thorough intake. She is professional and personable. She approached my case with an open mind. She is humble enough to admit that she doesn't have all the answers and passionate enough to persist until she does find the answer. If that means referring you to a different specialist she will do that. She truly cares about her patients. I've already told some friends to schedule an appointment. You can tell she really loves her job. Honestly, she's amazing.
I really enjoyed my visit with Dr. Kramer. She was knowledgable, personable and very friendly! I felt as if she really cared! The only down side wears she only accepted cash for my copayment ... However, she has moved offices and hopefully accepts CCs now
First, as to the wait, it was less than 10 minutes, and that was because I arrived early. Essentially, I was seen at my appointment time. Second, if I were asked to rate Dr. Kramer on a scale of 1-10, 10 being highest, I would give her a 50 or 100. She greatly exceeded all expectations of professional concern and investigation not only regarding why I was going to see her, but also raising important issues after taking a thorough history. I recommend Dr. Kramer in the highest manner. I consider her the best physician I have ever visited as a patient (and I have seen many good and very good doctors).
Dr. Kramer was absolutely incredible - once she learned of my symptoms she researched until she found the right team(s) that would help her treat me - and even presented choices of teams. She's been more communicative than any other doctor, exhibiting a brightness of spirit and sense of humor that's inspiring. I recommend her to everyone who needs assurance that doctors can retain their humanity while parking their egos, and that patients need not feel like commodities punched out by the medical pharmaceutical complex.
Best doctor visit ever!!! She was very comforting and explained everything in details, and reached out to my other doctors, after establishing a plan of attack for my condition
Warm and friendly office. Dr. Kramer was caring, attentive, engaging, and I was very pleased with the care I received from her and her team. I highly recommend her practice to others.
Her partner sees Orthodox Jews but, this wasn't an issue she discussed my labs and other issues and called my PCP so he was on board with the plan of care, good thorough MD
Dr. Kramer is so personable, accessible and down to earth. She's everything you would want in a Doctor. I cannot recommend her enough.
Dr. Kramer was extremely outgoing and easy to talk to. She was knowledgable about my case and had done her research. I was impressed by the range of questions she asked me and the attention to detail. This was my first time going to a hematologist so I was not sure what to expect, and it turned out to be a positive experience.
Incredibly pleasant experience with Dr. Kramer. Explained things very clearly and was very relatable. Her office staff was lovely. Would highly recommend a visit to her office if needed!
Dr. Kramer was great! Extremely approachable and focused. Very professional I would definitely recommend her to a friend.
Dr. Kramer was great! She took the time to explain results of labs I brought to her from other doctors, and she even went out of her way to communicate directly with my doctors to discuss appropriate treatment options. She was friendly, and very funny, which made me less nervous during my visit!
Dr. Kramer achieves the perfect balance between relatable and professional. She made me feel at ease, and was able to answer my questions. I probably won't need her services again (for which I'm grateful) but I would recommend her to anyone without hesitation.
