Verified Patient Reviews
I was impressed with Dr. Mara. I got there 15 min early to fill out paperwork, I was seen on time and i was out in 20 min., literally. So a total of 35 min for a new patient. I also got a good price on my prescription.
My visit with Dr. Kraus was very good. Explained in layman's terms my condition and the medications to treat it.
Great as always
My first visit. Very direct and thorough
Very professional thorough and caring
Love Dr Kraus and the staff! I always feel welcome.
Dr. Kraus' compounding treatments have always worked for me. I have been coming to him for initial treatment then just maintenance for years now (2002+). The compounds are a bit pricey and many health plans do not cover it, fyi. But they are prescribed to my skin needs and always work (medicated face wash and creams). I do prefer he spend more time with me sometimes and ask more questions regarding next steps and what I need help with next.
Excellent! Excellent! Excellent! He cured the malady that I originally sought him out for.
Great doctor and awesome staff.
Great Doctor, funny and very intelligent. Does not push drugs or procedures on you. Will be seeing frequently!
I made the appt seeking an educational consultation rather than an immediate prescription to resolve my acne breakouts. I would have appreciated a more keen listener attentive to my needs and objectives. I'm sure he knows his stuff, however, his bedside manners could use some improvement. I had plenty of questions with hardly any time to address them.
Very thorough and I didn't feel like a number.
The best!! He actually listens to his patients and gears his treatment toward that interaction. He has remedied a situation that has plagued me for 3 years within two months. He is the best dermatologist that I have ever had the privilege to utilize.
So nice! Really knows what he's talking about & I feel like this is the one time a doctor is really going to make a difference with my skin. Yay finally!
I love going to Dr. Kraus! Perfect bedside manners. Always entertaining. Would recommend him and his practice to anyone.
Very understanding; very comprehensive. Goes right to the problem with differentials to solve it. I know that this is the dermatoloist that will clear my skin.
Just so kind and informative and professional.
It was excellent, he is a little bit in a hurry all the time, but he is a 5 stars doctor!!
Dr Kraus and his staff were fast and efficient and open to any questions. I would highly recommend this doctor.
Dr Kraus was very helpful in addressing my acne concerns. I highly recommend him!
Dr. Kraus was very professional and perfect bedside manners. He made sure my son understood how to apply and take the medicine prescribed. I would highly recommend Dr. Kraus to anyone.
Good. Just with any other doctor though, watch the hidden fees. He was upfront that my treatment would require a monthly office visit but I didn't realize that it would also require monthly lab tests which also cost time and money.
Very good visit.
:) :) :)
Dr. Kraus is a great doctor! I've had problems with acne since I was a teenager, and he is by far the best dermatologist I have ever seen. His compounds and face washes are fantastic!
I have known Dr. Kraus for many years now. He hasn't changed a bit! Wonderful bedside manner and care!
Dr. Kraus is funny, direct and honest.
I was an hour late for my appointment, and they still got me right in! Great office, front desk was very helpful and everyone was pleasant!
