    How was your appointment with Dr. Kruger?

    May 02, 2022
    Dr E. Kruger not only saved my brothers leg, from amputation, He also saved his life. My brother was told by an ER physician, at KRMC ( in Kingman, Az.) that she would not treat him, he was going to die. (My brother is an X heroin user ) I am a retired LPN, and 71 years old, and had never heard of anyone saying that to a patient Later on,that month, he was air lifted to Mayo Clinic in Phoenix in septic shock. I thank Jesus that Dr. Erwin Kruger , our Hero , got involved!! He worked on my brother, did 7 procedures, He would not give up. From ankle to knee, most of the outer skin was necrotic. Dr Kruger did not care that my brother used drugs in the past, did not give a 2nt thought to insurance, Aetna would not pay over 55%. As if that is not enough, This Doctor from Heavens Gate, Always make you feel as if you were part of his family. Always a warm sincere greeting, with a smile. His parents need to write a "How to..." book. This world needs more like him. Ty
