Dr. Kraay is the best doctor I've ever seen for Orthopaedics. He understands my complexities and always gives me the best advice without jumping right to surgery. I've been seeing him since 1993 and he has done a hip replacement revision and a knee replacement on me. I just love him!

Dr. Kraay is a wonderful doctor. Always pays attention and listens to me. Always takes time to explain what he is doing and what his thoughts are regarding my care. I feel safe during my visits even when I have to have a procedure that may cause pain (knee injections). He is absolutely wonderful as is everyone in his clinic I have interacted with.

Overall it was ok. But I would like feel like my doctor really cared and was more friendly. And maybe give some other things that good of help. In stead of whatever you want to do. It was kind of cold. *** I left feeling like I should have stayed home. I would have loved communicating about some more alternatives other a shot in my knee or mri. Like cremes etc. I am not giving a bad report but I dont want to go back.

Dr Kraay is so knowledgeable and actually listens and does an examination. I find most doctors are more interested in the tablet than actually touching you. I have the utmost respect for this doctor

Dr. Kraay and his team are wonderful. He called me himself when I had a question about my recovery from surgery. I would recommend him to any one who needed an orthopedic doctor.

Dr. Kraay spent a good deal of time patiently explaining treatment options. He then asked me how I would like to proceed. He was patient, explained things in layman's terms and was respectful. He did not rush through the appointment, despite the fact that it appeared he was very busy that day by the number of people in the waiting room.

Industry Relationships

University Hospitals is committed to transparency in our interactions with industry partners, such as pharmaceutical, biotech, or medical device companies. At UH, we disclose practitioner and their family members’ ownership and intellectual property rights that are or in the process of being commercialized. In addition, we disclose payments to employed practitioners of $5,000 or more from companies with which the practitioners interact as part of their professional activities. These practitioner-industry relationships assist in developing new drugs, devices and therapies and in providing medical education aimed at improving quality of care and enhancing clinical outcomes. At the same time, UH understands that these relationships may create a conflict of interest. In providing this information, UH desires to assist patients in talking with their practitioners about industry relationships and how those relationships may impact their medical care.

UH practitioners seek advance approval for certain new industry relationships. In addition, practitioners report their industry relationships and activities, as well as those of their immediate family members, to the UH Office of Outside Interests annually. We review these reports and implement management plans, as appropriate, to address conflicts of interest that may arise in connection with medical research, clinical care and purchasing decisions.
