    Philosophy of Care
    One of the most rewarding aspects of being a physician is not only helping my patients get well, but also establishing personal connections that will last a lifetime. I find that what I cherish most is the time I spend with patients and their families. I believe that a willingness to listen and compassion are crucial to the healing process.

    Hobbies
    In my spare time, I enjoy music, movies, running and traveling with friends and family.

    I'm a returning patient at St Joseph Heritage, after an absence of about 3 years. My first visit back was on [date], and some tests were ordered, but I'm in the middle of having them done so no results are available as yet. Dr. Kreng spent about 45 minutes with me to review my health, prescriptions and concerns. She was great!

    No instructions for post-lab and procedure visits. not sure if I would be contacted by staff to schedule follow up, or am I to come back only after all referalls have been pursued and completed and other tests done to discuss at single visit? Justnot sure what is next, but will follow up and ask.

    High scores are why *Dr. Kreng is my PCP.
