Stories of Courage

“Dr. Krause literally changed my life.”

— Ashley McArthur

“I cannot say enough positive things about my experience.”

— Susan McClung, Proliance Surgeons Skagit Northwest Orthopedics patient

“So many things can change with our health between visits. The annual visit fills in key pieces so that when something does happen, the doctor has all the information, even if at the time of the visit, it seemed insignificant.”

— Amanda Jonasen, RN

“I was impressed with his knowledge of Alpha-1, his understanding of my condition and his willingness to help me. When you find a doctor who is willing to really listen, you don’t want to let him go.”

— Sandy Mason, Island Pulmonology patient

“He's taken such good care of us. He's gentle and smart and stops at nothing to help you.”

— Cheri Stilwell, Island Sports & Spine patient
