South Florida patients have spoken. Vitals, a leader in providing online transparency tools and data that help consumers find top plastic surgeons and make informed decisions about their cosmetic procedures announced its 8th annual Vitals Patients’ Choice award winners. Dr Krau was one of the winners!
Vitals Patients’ Choice Award recognizes top-performing plastic surgeons based on the reviews and ratings collected during the calendar year. Surgeons need an average rating of 4.5 or higher out of its 5-star rating system, to have received at least four reviews in a calendar year and have a medical license in good standing with no sanctions.
