Dr Kruse got down to the root of my problem and proposed a range of solutions and a recommended solution. I went with the latter, which was a short procedure in the office. He did everything as quickly and as painlessly as possible.

My wife referred me to Dr. Kruse after seeing him last summer for a minor issue. She raved about how pleasant and professional he was so when I started having issues she immediately booked me an appointment. Dr. Kruse was justas great as she described. He was very attentive and took my issue seriously. Very glad with my visit.

Dr. Kruse is accurate and quick! I tend to be very anxious at any type of doctor appointment but he made me feel at ease with his great personality and sense of humor. He found me the most reasonably priced waysto deal with my neuroma. I never waited more than 2 minutes for my appointments. His practice is clean, comfortable and his staff is so friendly. I would recommend him to other Chicago residents who suffer from foot pain.

Dr Kruse is simply exceptional. He is knowledgeable, caring, thorough, and plans for my future health as well as solving my current issue. I demand a lot from my body and his care and the care plan that he has developedfor me allows me to continue doing so even at 50 years old. He is a wonderful person and podiatrist and I wholeheartedly recommend him!

It was so incredibly smooth I was amazed. The registration process for a new patients was a breeze because you can do it online before you arrive at the office. The fact that I didn't have to wait at all tosee the doctor once I arrived was a plus. I was so nervous when I arrived because I have never had the experiences before and didn't know what to expect. Dr. Kruse was very nice and explained everything completely before he started. I was done in a matter of minutes. I would highly recommend him to everyone. Every review I read about how great he was 100% true.

Dr. Kruse was awesome! Incredibly friendly staff and no wait time. I was nervous about my insurance and what it would cover and the staff called and checked everything out before I underwent any treatment. I would highly recommend him if you need foot or ankle help in the loop!
