What Patients are saying
Dr. Kretch is amazing! I came in with a foot fungus that no other doctor could get rid of and he’s helped out. Barely had to wait when I got there and the staff is super friendly. Highly recommend!

Dr Kretch has been absolutely fantastic to work with. He has a patient centric approach that really focuses on what is causing my pain and producing the best possible solution. He has gone out of his way to make sure I understand everything that is going on with my ankle injury each step of the way. While I hope I don’t need to see a doctor too often, I will always go to Dr Kretch for any foot or ankle problems and highly recommend anyone else who has injuries or pain does too.

UPDATE: DR. KRETSCH AND JENNY REACHED TO ME AND WE GOT AN APPOINTMENT! SO VERY GLAD THAT WE GOT AN APPOINTMENT WITH DR KRETSCH AS HE IS WONDERFUL! GREAT JOB! AND THANK YOU SO MUCH! Never even made an appointment! Called for an emergency for my husband and the scheduler was so unprofessional that I hung up. Amazingly my son goes to this practice and says they are great! Don't know what was going on today but I won't be scheduling here!

Nothing like a toe emergency to start my Friday! Dr. Kretch’s team was so professional and showed the upmost concern regarding my emergency. Dr. Kretch was kind, caring and compassionate and his bedside manner was calming during a very stressful situation. I would highly recommend Dr. Kretch and his entire team to anyone!

Dr Kretch scheduled me quickly after I contacted the office. When I got there the team took care of me right when I walked him. Dr Kretch explained my options clearly and provided his recommendations. It’s a great feeling to be pain free after just one visit. Would recommend to friends and family.
