Patient Story 853756631

"For 10 years I suffered from ulcerative colitis. At one point I was seeing three different specialists for not only my condition, but also the side effects from treating my condition. At the age of 29 I was in a dark place, spending most of my days sick and in pain. Dr. Kraft saved my life. He was aggressive with my treatment and let me know that he was going to do everything he could to make me well. Where others treated symptoms he went after the cause of my sickness. Through his care and guidance I went through a life altering surgery to remove my small intestine. This the choice to have this aggressive surgery saved my life. That was seven years ago and my life has changed in so many ways.

I am now a father of three, I am the head men's soccer coach at West Hills College, and last year became the Director of Athletics at West Hills College. Whenever I have a doctors appointment I feel like I am going to see a friend who has my best interest in mind and cares about not only me, but also my family. I go with confidence to Sierra Pacific Orthopedics knowing that I am apart of the family not just a patient. All the best." -- Allen F.
