He took the time to really listen and talk to my child.
Overall, very good experience.
would of liked for the the physician to engage more with my child. Ask him questions about his conditions, if he had any questions or concerns, concerns for him as a child.
We had a great experience and were very satisfied with the care received.
Dr. Kress was very empathetic and pleasant with the child.
Appreicated the short wait time to see the doctor. Also how they were sympathetic to the costs of the treatments. m
This was the best visit I had with the doctor.I always deal with an Intern at the beginning of appointment in the Wexford office. It's nice to just deal directly with the Doctor. Honestly I don't mind dealing every once in awhile with intern but every time gets annoying. Especially since we are there every 3 months.
Good visit, no problems
Doc was awesome. Son was anxious until he entered room.
Dr. Kress and his staff are great and we feel very confident with their ability to treat our daughter with the best care possible.
my daughter and I really liked Dr. Kress- very nice and caring Doctor
did not feel that Dr Kress even looked at my child yet alone examine him - how can you do a complete mole check from across the room without even touching the patient
Dr. Kress was professional yet did make my child feel comfortable and at ease. He was kind, friendly and I think he is a genius !!!
Dr. Kress was a pleasure to work with. he showed genuine care for my daughter and made sure to spend enough time getting to know all about her past medical history. I would recommend Dr. Kress in a heartbeat!
he had a good understanding of my son's health history and the medications he takes as a result of his medical condition. he was careful to prescribe medications that would not interact with those and to explain to me how to use the medications he was providing. he also assisted us with a coupon for a new medication to cover the copay.
