Jeffrey Krause, MD, joined Island Sports & Spine, increasing access to care for patients looking for non-surgical, minimally-invasive, chronic pain options. Dr. Krause brings an extensive anesthesiology background with a goal to implement the latest innovative treatments to address chronic pain in the neck, back, arms, shoulders, legs and hips.
In an interview, Krause shared with us a little about himself, including why he chose Island Health and what he wants his patients to know about him.
What is your favorite part of your job?
It is extremely gratifying to foster long-term relationships while serving as a guide in my patients’ pain management recovery.
Why did you choose Island Health?
A Colorado native, the Navy brought my wife and me to Bremerton for four years while I served as an active duty anesthesiologist. With our free time, we would visit the San Juan Islands and fell in love with the area. When the opportunity presented itself to return to the PNW, we decided to take the plunge and move across the country one last time.
What do you want patients to know about you?
The goal I have with my patients is to implement the latest non-surgical, minimally invasive techniques to provide whole health, medical management and interventions that will give them lasting pain relief.
What are some of your hobbies?
Outside of work, I enjoy collecting coins, camping, mountain biking and fermenting things like beer, cider, kombucha and sauerkraut, to name a few.
