|Alan D. Kritz, MD|
We are so thankful EZ is under the care of such a brilliant hematology oncologist. Dr. Kritz got the call (from our orthopedic doctor) about Ernie on the afternoon of the 19th, and fit us in the next day, spending close to 2 1/2 hours with us. We liked him immediately. He jumped right on things...explaining the possibilities, doing an examination, taking a thorough history, completing bloodwork, beginning a 24 hour urinalysis and doing a bone marrow biopsy. Thus, EZ's journey with myeloma began and this was the first of MANY consequent trips to the Cancer Center, where Ernie would have his radiation and infusion treatments. It is easy to see why Dr. Kritz has been selected to be included in Best Doctors in America 2011-2012!
We feel like we got to know Dr. Kritz really well as he checked on Ernie almost every day for the month he was bedridden at Rex Hospital. He was concerned and caring in every way. We trust him, admire him and believe he has made the right decisions concerning EZ's course of treatment. We will continue to see him once a month as he monitors Ernie on maintenance therapy and monthly bone strengthener infusions. It's been quite a year, yet we are very thankful Dr. Kritz has been calling the shots, and that the cancer is now in remission!
