I feel that I was treated very well and all were friendly--I got to the office on time and was done in less then a half an hour---in and out it was great!

Dr. Kruse was not at all interested in finding the root cause of the problem. She only wanted to prescribe birth control pills.

This was my 1st visit with this provider.. haven't been in years. I used to see Tonsing with no problems.. I am in menopause and she didn't explain risks to HRT she said this is your options A or B .. matter of fact . I wanted more information about what and how significant the risks were as I told her I had been Managing for 2 years with natural / over the counter things/ herbs... she did not have any bed side manner at all and almost seemed as she was judging me for not having an exam in awhile ... that is not her place to judge!! I do not think I will go back , I will follow through with the tests she ordered but will find someone else to manage my medication if I decided to continue .. RX papers said this should be taken for the shortest time needed ??? Didn't know HRT was a short time thing as menopause lasts for years ??? Overall a negative experience compared to previous visits with Dr.Tonsing

I would recommend having the doctor meet the patient and talk with her before having her undress. Ask the patient if she has any questions or concerns before the examination especially if the patient has NEVER met the doctor to begin with. Provide the patient with an understanding of what to expect. I thought we were talking about my ultrasound results and having a discussion. I had no idea I would be undressing.

It is never pleasant going in for a gynecological exam but Dr. Kruse and her staff are ALWAYS kind, respectful and cheerful whenever I visit them. She is a good Doctor and she always tries to make an unpleasant visit, more pleasant.

This was my first time meeting Dr. Kruse. I chose her because of her NAMS certification. I hoped for a really good conversation about my postmenopausal issues and about all potential options for addressing them. However, her communication style is quite terse and lacking warmth. She immediately decided to prescribe a pill that I cannot take, even though I was clear about issues with swallowing pills. We never even talked about the possibility of using hormones even though I fall within the NAMS guidelines. I felt like she could not get away from me fast enough. I had high hopes for this visit! I doubt I'll come back.

Not to require masks when 95% of businesses don't require them anymore. It should be a choice

The staff was good. The doctor did not explain, really what she was going to be doing. She didn't explain that I might have some issues afterwards, except for that, if I was, you know, had some bleeding later to contact them but didn't say, you know, just didn't give enough information. She felt very cold to me. If I do return, it will be requesting a different doctor.

Dr. Kruse always takes the time to list to my concerns. I really, really love that she calls me personally with the results of my tests. You really don't see that personal touch anymore. I truly appreciate all she has done for me.

No knowledge of my medical history and I've been going to that clinic since 2011. Very disappointed with having to explain medical past when it came to my visit for an on going issue. Will most likely seek another provider for my needs.

Everything was great. I will have to return for a mammogram and it is 3 hours from my home. Knowing that and possibly being able to do same day scheduling would have been terrific.

I seen Dr. Kruse for many years and last year, when I saw her for my annual exam her bed side manner was lacking. And I figured she's just having an off day. However, this year, when I saw her again for my annual exam, her bed side manner was lacking again. She seems unhappy not excited to be there, and was not unfriendly. But would definitely not friendly. This is 2 years in a row.

My provider was missing some information about relevant surgery. She said she never got the report from the surgeon. I have a copy, which I have scanned. She told me to get an email from the receptionist when I checked out so it could be added to my file, but the receptionist said they didn't do email, only fax. Seriously? I don't have a fax machine at home. Who does? In the days of Covid, you want me to either find a fax at another facility, exposing myself there, or make a copy at home and make another visit to my doctor's office, risking more exposure? Come up to the 21st century.

It's impossible to spend more time with each patient, but I just think this is the only area lacking. But I'm aware it's a universal problem.

The doctor was very good. She listened. I really like her. I don't usually recommend doctors to people, so I don't know if I'd recommend her to anybody. The staff was okay. They, the one girl might have been in training. She seemed to have a little trouble scheduling an appointment. And I would rate you guys higher, as far as staff and everything, and recommend you more, if you weren't requiring masks.
