    Excellent doctor & nurses.
    Longer appt. times would be nice. More doctor/patient time.
    Very good experience.
    Dr. Kruse is, by far, the best doctor I've ever known (and that includes my best friend who is also a Doctor!). Dr. Kruse was my doctor for several years when he was with Memorial Care. I lost him for 2 years when he moved to United Healthcare and my insurance wouldn't allow me to transfer to his new office. But when I turned 65 and enrolled with Medicare, my first step in the process was to see if I could get back with Dr. Kruse. I was beyond thrilled to find that he was again available to me. On my first visit with him after the 2 year lapse, he remembered specific details about my past medical and personal history. I can't speak highly enough about Dr. Torsten Kruse, and it's clear that the entire staff at his office feel the same way about him!
    *Dr. Kruse is an excellent doctor and a very wonderful, humanitarian person.
