I am picky. Dr. Krieg is my 4th pediatrician, and I drive an hour to see her. It's worth every minute! When my girls get sick, you call and talk right away with a receptionist who will fit you in not just the same day but within a few hours--faster and so much better than urgent care!! My sister recommended her when my old doc said my girl was fine and I knew he was wrong. Dr. Krieg sent us to the E.R. (thank goodness because by the time we got there her fever was 106 and they put her on I.V. fluids within minutes!). Dr. Krieg personally called the hospital to make sure they ran certain tests and called us several times to follow up. WOW! And that's not unusual--my other girl had a mysterious fever this week and the Dr. ran sufficient tests to rule out anything serious (most doctors I've had would have sent me home saying it was just a virus, but it potentially could have been much worse. If they don't test, they don't catch serious problems early!) and she called me several times over the next few days to give me test results and ask if the baby had any new symptoms. I mean, people, this is CLEARLY above and beyond anyone's expectations! She takes time to ask not just about health but about behavioral issues, eating habits--anything that concerns you. I switched in time for my third baby and I thought I knew everything about parenting, but I grudgingly took her advice on nursing and helping the baby sleep through the night--and it worked! This doctor is a mom and she knows what she is talking about. The office expects you to be on time, and I never have to wait more than five or ten minutes to get in--they run a tight ship. The staff is nice enough, especially in comparison to most offices, and believe me, I've been in many. So in conclusion I give Dr. Krieg the highest praise that I can give to any doctor: I trust her with the health of my children and she is my 4th and last (hopefully) pediatrician!
Pros: Dr. Krieg is amazing! She is thorough, and I trust her!
Cons: I've had a receptionist get snippety. . . .
