Ratings for Dr. Hans B. Krebs
My primary care doctor has referred me to Dr. Krebs three times for things that were outside her scope. I appreciated that he sat with me in his office (not the exam room) the first time he met with me and explained exactly why I'd been referred. I found him gentle, and sensitive to my anxiety in the exam room and during my outpatient procedures. I would not hesitate to recommend him.
I recently had my second Laparscopic procedure due to Endometriosis. My first surgery was with a different doctor and it was a nightmare that ended up in a laparotomy. Dr. Krebs was referred to me by my Obgyn. Dr, Krebs does have an interesting sense of humor and his office staff is less than helpful but he is amazing. He is very detailed, he explains everything clearly and he called me the night before my surgery to check in on me. Dr. Krebs was able to do my surgery by laparoscopy even though it was very involved. The pain from the surgery was minimal and I did not need any pain medication after the second day post op. I would highly recommend Dr. Krebs to anyone that has Endometriosis or any other pelvic conditions.
Perhaps this doctor corrected my prolapsed pelvic organs well, but only time will tell. When I first met with him he was detailed and precise about the procedure (hysterectomy) but subsequent visits he was more vague. Ultimately my aftercare has been horrendous. He neglected to tell me before my surgery that I would have LIFETIME restrictions (I am a young athletic woman who is physically active in her occupation). I asked him about my restrictions during my post op follow up appt. and he walked out on me. If my organs prolapse again he will not perform my surgery.
Dr Krebs takes care of business. He knows what he's looking for and knows how to take care of it. He presents the problem very scientifically - which can seem cold when you are scared. But, he has a lot of skill, bring your husband or a friend to hold your hand.
Dr Krebs is the best surgeon around. He is very skilled and knowledgable. He has saved my life twice. Cervical cancer 4 years ago, did a radical hysterectomy and threw in a tummy tuck! Recommended a colonoscopy at age 45 which found precancerous cells. If I had waited until the recommended age of 50 they would have been cancerous by then. Highly recommend him. As far as his bedside manner, He's German, nuff said!
I have been a patient of Dr. Krebs since 1994. If it was not for Dr. Krebs thoroughness and attention to detail, my past medical history of dysplasia would have advanced to cervical cancer. I would highly recommend him as I travel an hour away for office visits. Please understand he is very busy and although you may have to wait, it's worth it! I will be very saddened when he retires and I have to find a new OB/GYN Doctor.
Dr. Krebs was my surgeon when I had a large benign ovarian tumor. He ended up having to remove my ovary as well, but had warned me of that very likely outcome beforehand. I was very pleased with his thorough explanations before the surgery, his punctuality on the day of the surgery--he was early! for an afternoon appointment!--and his care of me while I was in the hospital. I did find him a bit abrupt for my followup appointment, but overall I was pleased and would go back to him if needed.
Kr. Krebs operated on me 4 days ago and I feel great. He is efficient, caring, and explains what needs to be done and what options exist. I'd highly recommend him. I felt I was in good hands and received the best possible treatment. If the highest rating here is a five - then he's a 7!!!!
