Dr. KRIEN HAS THE GIFT FROM GOD.

Dr. Krein was really wonderful. The entire practice was professional, considerate, attentive, and understanding. The day of surgery was remarkable — every single person from Krein himself, to anesthesiologists, nurses, attendants, staff at desk, the person who took me to my car: just wonderful. I was dreading the whole thing and they just made it so much better. Thank you!

Every aspect of my experience with Dr. Krein and the staff at Jefferson Facial Plastics was exceptional. Everything runs smoothly there from the moment you arrive. After my consultation, I felt confident my comfort and care would be their priority, and it was from the waiting room to recovery. Dr. Krein is extremely personable, caring, and gifted. I cannot overstate this doctor’s skill - my results are astounding. I recommend Dr. Krein for anyone seeking an elite professional, a very patient-centered experience, and truly amazing results.

Dr Krein is sweet, proficient in his work and my procedure was painless. I really recommend. I did my research before selecting him and I was NOT disappointed. I’m planning on having a rhinoplasty with him in the near future. He made me and my 3 friends (yes 3...) laugh and feel comfortable throughout the time I was getting the filler. Lovely man and great practice.

Patient

I struggled with the idea of having a facial procedure for quite awhile. When I met Dr. Krein and his staff I felt very comfortable with his diagnosis. They addressed my concerns and questions so I was able to relax and trust that I was in good hands. My procedure and recovery went exactly as Dr. Krein told me it would be....no surprises. I had swelling but not one bruise. It is now 5 weeks after my surgery and I feel and look better than I imagined. My sincere thank you to Dr. Krein and his staff for making my experience one that has been life changing and uplifting.

Dr. Krein has been an excellent doctor throughout the entire process. From the pre-op through the post-op I felt secure and confident in our decisions. I was impressed with the work and candour with which he performed it. Friendly and punctual, I would absolutely come back if I was considering more work. Definitely recommend him to anyone who is unsure of choosing the right doctor or the right procedure for them.

I felt confident the moment I met Dr. Krein. My rhinoplasty surgery was a revision and it was a difficult one. Dr. Krein made it all seem easy. I knew I was in good hands and all procedures were explained. There were no surprises. The outcome is amazing. I feel confident when talking to people close up now. I am not thinking of my nose and what they are thinking of my nose! I now know it looks great! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Dr. Krein did such an amazing job on a keloid of mine that i let get way out of hand.

Run to Dr. Krein. He is so competent -- you can just sense how he is comfortable and has completely mastered his profession. I hope that I can come to him again if I ever need anything...which is the only reason I get nervous about sending the masses! But run to him. I can breathe for the first time in my life. And when discussing possibly involving a cosmetic portion to my surgery, he was so honest and it meant not getting additional services -- so he is honest and will make you feel that you can give the worrying away to the staff. I was calm throughout my entire process. Thank you, Dr. Krein and your amazing staff. Sincerely, Irene - Philadelphia

Dr. Krein listened to all of my questions and concerns and anxiety about rhinoplasty. I had been thinking about it for years but never had the guts to do it. He didn't pressure me and allowed me to visit with him twice before the surgery. He listened to my requests. It's been two months since the surgery and I am so happy with the results! His staff is really friendly and knowledgeable too.
