This doctor was very good. Very easy to talk to. It has to be said that the NP Alexandr was also very professional. He didn't rush and thoroughly went thru questions with me.

Dr. Kralovic was knowledgeable, empathetic, and moved quickly to order an MRI and PT, as well as prescription changes, and a follow-up appointment. Excellent care team!
