Verified Patient Reviews
I've felt quite comfortable and relaxed during our sessions... even parts I thought would be awkward weren't. She listens very carefully and guides the conversation just enough. I can tell she's being careful about weighing different factors and not rushing into a diagnosis.
She was smart, quick, compassionate but direct. She totally "gets it" just like her website says.
Dr. Kraker is an excellent listener who asks thoughtful questions. I think I made an excellent choice in meeting with her, and look forward to working with her in future appts.
Dr. Kraker balances professionalism with an ability to relate to her patients in a way that makes each meeting feel both productive and organic. She is very attentive to patients' needs and I look forward to my sessions.
I felt comfortable right away with Dr. Kraker, and find her compassionate & intelligent. I really like that she doesn't push medications, but mostly how well she understands me.
Dr Kraker is very compassionate and extremely knowledgable. She asked the right questions and thoroughly explained everything to me. I left feeling much better than when I walked in. It was both really informative and reassuring to consult such a knowledgeable doctor who genuinely tries to help.
In my 13 years of receiving mental health support, Dr. Kraker ranks among my favorite therapists/doctors. She is genuine, sweet, and brilliant. When you suffer from mental illness, whether it is a temporary and moderate episode or more severe and chronic, it's so easy to be hard on yourself about it. Dr. Kraker taught me to be more understanding and forgiving of myself.
Lovely office! I've never had any wait. Dr. Kraker is very attentive. Although she doesn't accept insurance (it seems most psychiatrists don't), she willing to work with you to help be reimbursed.
She really listens, more than just a few sessions, before diagnosis. She doesn't just to conclusions and I personally really like that.
Nice professional environment with free flowing thought provoking conversation. Dr. Kraker is highly educated and experienced. Even though she is fairly new to having her own practice, her style and expertise feel much like other doctors who Ive had in the past with 20+ years of private practice experience.
I found this doctor to be extremley cold in her bedside manner, and was extremley insenstive. This doctor also has a very strict cancellation policy, so beware when scheduling.
