I highly recommend Dr. Krome. He has been my doctor since 2009. Aside from been courteous he is very smart and knowledgeable in his field of medicine. I have asked so many questions about my knee and the problems I am having my left knee and leg pain; and he has taken time to explain and treat my problems and permanent disability.
He is a Godsend!

Taking time out for a doctor appointment is saved for when other options don’t seem to make much headway toward resolving the problem.

Arthritic pain can become more than an annoyance for some. Giving up activities or declining invitations because the knee won’t “make it” are common concerns. In the worst cases even a good night’s sleep can be difficult.
