“I am pleased to join PMC. I am excited to bring my extensive background and expertise to provide quality care to patients in this region,” said Dr. Krohmer.
He says he always wanted to be a physician, but decided on his specific career during a medical rotation at George Washington University.
“I was able to work with a well-known world leader in interventional radiology, Tony Venbrux, MD. said Dr. Krohmer.
“He demonstrated patient care by being personal and getting to know his patients,” added Dr. Krohmer.
He says he knew he wanted to provide the same care to his patients.
“Since that rotation, I have always gotten to know my patients and their needs. To me, they are more than just a procedure,” Dr. Krohmer said.
He says he looks forward to providing care to the region.
“My goals are to simply provide medical care and be a physician that my patients know they can depend on in their time of need,” Dr. Krohmer said.
Several factors drew Dr. Krohmer to PMC.
“I chose PMC for several reasons,” he said. “I was impressed with all the state-of-the-art interventional radiology technology available. I can provide care to patients at PMC without sending them out of town for care,” added Dr. Krohmer.
Dr. Krohmer says everyone he came in contact with had terrific things to say about PMC.
“I already respect so many people who work at PMC,” Dr. Krohmer said. “This hospital has all the components for growth and providing top-notch patient care.”
