Dr. Kryger has such attention to detail and receives excellent results. He worked with me to make sure I received exactly the results I desired, and as it turned out, I am happier than I ever imagined after having bilateral mastectomies with reconstruction. I highly recommend him!

Dr. Kryger is confident in his abilities to perform the surgery and is very detailed oriented with recovery which is wonderful when facing the unknown. I am glad I had the surgery which not only makes me feel more normal, but the doctor also gave me beauty. The doctor and his staff were always helpful, available and willing to help me with anything I needed. I will always be grateful for their generosity and commitment to helping women with breast cancer.
