What I like most about Dr. Kraft is that he stands behind his work. He is accessible, schedules as much time for followup as you need and then supports you during the postop period. He doesn't take the money and run off on vacation; I booked my surgery months in advance to get a particular date knowing that he wouldn't leave town for a month afterwards. He answers calls at night and on the weekends like a real doctor and doesn't go in for all the hype. It is all about the quality of the work and he is a perfectionist. He didn't try to sell me on more than what I wanted or could afford. He wouldn't schedule me until my medical doctor had approved the surgery so no short-cuts or avoiding medical truths in his practice. The anesthesiologist was a lovely man with a calming personality. Dr. Kraft's office staff, his K-Team, are the best. They handle my phone inquiries, work the schedule like pros and advocate for patients. The office OR is accredited and it is a very comfortable environment for the surgery. Best thing, besides Dr. K, is that I didn't have to go into the city where prices are much higher, the staff can be snotty, and offices aren't easily accessible. Why go to Manhattan when Dr. K is in your backyard?

Searching within Queens. After having two c-sections my mid-section was nothing but over stretched skin and flab that exercise couldn't help. So, I finally got the courage to get a Tummy Tuck. I search for a PS for over a year. I found most PS to be like car salesmen and not really trust worthy. I came across by accident. Since I was pretty put off by the past PS I visited; I didn't expect to like or be impressed by doctor Kraft. I found him to be honest and trust worthy. He was very informative an didn't seem to care if I were going to get the surgery or not. His main purpose was to inform me and to let me know what to actually expect with my body type. The day of my surgery Dr. Kraft was on time, sat next to me while I was prepped for and questioned before surgery. He was great before and after I had my Tummy Tuck. He was so good, that I was sad to have me post visits come to an end. He is truly a great PS.

My Insurance referred me to him. I actually went to see him last year for liposculpting consultation and showed him his work. " I do some amazing work don't ?!" Was his response and yes he does! I highly recommend him. His staff is very helpful and kind.

I highly recommend Dr. Kraft. My clothes fit so much better. For anyone who is looking to have surgery go to the best and that is Dr. Kraft. His staff was so amazing and helpful. Dr. Kraft is so nice, he explained the whole procedure to me, which made me feel so comfortable. I knew I was going to be in good hands.

I was recommended to Dr Kraft shortly after he began to practice in Forest Hills. He performed an upper lid lift on me over 20 years ago and I never needed another cosmetic surgery. Since then, I've had Botox and Restylane treatments. Over the years he has removed quite a few skin cancers from my face (I am very fair skinned). He is a genuinely caring man and a gentleman at that. He has made good referrals for me to other doctors in the area and has never steered me wrong. My whole family has been treated by him for both cosmetic and medically necessary treatment. His staff members have been there for years and are very smart women.

Dr. Kraft is a superb physician. He spent a great deal of time with me in two pre-operative consultations. His price was extremely fair and less than doctors in Manhattan. I wanted to pay for a good doctor and not the fanciest office, although his office is definitely upscale. The office staff is extremely knowledgeable. What I liked most was that Dr. Kraft was extremely conservative. He didn't try to sell me services that I didn't want. He explained all the risks and negatives honestly and with integrity so I knew what to watch out for. I wanted information in order to make an intelligent decision---and got it! He went over my medical history in great detail. I got the impression that he chooses his patients carefully and makes sure that they are healthy enough to have surgery. I wouldn't hesitate to return to this doctor for more surgery. I'm saving up for a tummy-tuck now.
