"I am happy to have a chance to write about my experience. It has been several years that I have been seeing Dr. Kramar. The experience with Dr. Kramar and most of his staff have been great. In my recent visit, I encountered an unpleasant experience with one of the staff members checking my vision's field of view on Visual Field Perimetry. This individual, whom I will not disclose the name, was professional in many ways. However, the way this person spoke to me was condescending and I did not appreciate the tone of voice. Perhaps that is how this person speaks to everyone but if so, this individual should find a different profession with no or very little contact with others. I don't run this practice but if I did, I would show this person the exit door in heartbeat. I am sure there are plenty of other qualified professionals that would fill that position."
"As always Dr Kramar’s skills are exceptional. He is attentive and takes great care to answer all questions. The eye exam is very thorough and his staff is also attentive. Dr. Stephanie Iver-Smith took extraordinary time to determine my correct prescription glasses."
"Dr. Kramar was educational and helpful in my diagnosis and treatment."
"D. Kramar is the eye stye removal king. I was reffered by a friend who saw him previously for the same problem with their eye and I am so grateful to have found him! He was extremely knowledgeable, gentle and did an amazing job removing/draining my eye stye. Very professional and clean office. They took excellent care of me and I am happy with the removal process of draining my stye. I had a hard time finding a honest and good doctor so I am just very happy with Dr. Kramar. The whole experience was as good as it could be. He was intelligent, friendly, patient and I just had a good feeling about him. Very grateful for him and his staff for helping me with my eyes and I highly highly highly recommend this ophthalmologist for any eye concerns!"
"I have been seeing Dr. Kramar for over 10 years . He’s wonderful. He‘s always warm, professional, and provides relevant information in layman’s terms. I plan to continue seeing him and have recommended him to friends and family."
