“I am so thankful for Dr. Rod Kraft's diagnosis that I was in need of left hip replacement surgery. It took Dr. Kraft less than 20 minutes including X-rays to show me my problem and this after almost two years of thinking it was the lumbar area of my spine that was the major source of my pain. He scheduled an appointment for me with Dr. Thomas Thomas and the rest is history. I am now one month distant from Dr. Thomas replacing my left hip joint with a metal replacement and I'm already much better. In addition, nurse practitioners; Ken and Lisa were great prior to my surgery and after.”
