Dr. Kruse was highly recommended as a primary care physician (PCP), and now I understand why. He's prompt, very informative, attentive, and patiently engaging. Whenever I needed clarity regarding specific health concerns, he took the time to slow things down a bit and address my questions. Dr. Kruse exceeded all of my healthcare expectations, and I'm fortunate to have him as my PCP.
