Dr Kramer is a no nonsense doctor, who tells it like it is. Any oncologist has to deal with bad stuff, so to deal with bad stuff in a good way is a special talent, which she has !

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 ideashe 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!

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 ofan 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!

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 thalassemiatrait, 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!

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 asa 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.

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!
