[...] and Dr. Krabak were phenomenal. I felt that both of them truly listened to me and took the time to learn about me as a person. I also felt that both were very personable. The care and service I was given was fantastic and also timely. Their timeliness might play a big factor in why I felt they were getting to know me. Some they were efficient in the way they managed their time, they used as many opportunities as possible to talk to me, hear me out, and also recommend the best treatments for me. This has been the smoothest appointment I have had regarding this injury and I am so happy about it.
