I have breast cancer and went to Dr. Krueger for a second opinion. I was planning on having my surgery and treatments at the Univ. of Chicago. After meeting with Dr. Krueger, I decided to have her do my surgery. I felt listened to and felt she was personally caring for ME and was providing individual care as opposed to being just another patient which is how I felt at U of C. I feel she will be treating MY CANCER and will have my best interest in mind. I'm so very grateful she agreed to take my case.

Dr. Krueger is a wonderful surgeon, a good communicator, and a caring doctor. I would recommend her to anyone with a breast cancer diagnosis.
