Growing up in a family of nurses, I learned early-on the importance of good bedside manner and clear communication. Each patient is unique, and the most successful physicians are those that listen first and talk second. I start each day remembering that it is a privilege to take care of people in their most vulnerable moments.

After this, she completed her plastic and reconstructive surgery residency at Duke University during which time she earned several research and teaching awards.

The hand surgery staff has been phenomenal. Everyone on the surgical team were personable and empathetic to my situation, making my entire experience comfortable. I went outside my healthcare network, as I was personally referred to Dr. Krucoff. I'm so glad I did! She is exceptional, with a great staff!

Working with Dr. Krucoff, from start to finish, was exceptional. I couldn't be more pleased with my experience. Her communication style is a blend of providing facts/educating with an awareness of possible viewpoints the patient may have.

The office staff was amazing from start to finish (making scheduling easy, taking me in when I had an hour delay due to a storm, correctly gendering me etc.) Dr Krucoff was also really thorough and took her time to explain every single thing to me. Extremely respectful during the consultation when she had to touch my body as well. She is very considerate and an amazing presence for trans folks!

I cannot say enough about Dr. Krucoff and her positivity and willingness to help and make me feel good. She asked what I wanted and made it happen without making me feel bad about myself for my decisions. She made me feel comfortable all the way through from my first appointment until now. She is gentle and answered any and all of my questions. I am suggesting her services to anyone who wants to know

Dr. Krucoff has been absolutely excellent in every way, shape, and form. Her bedside manner is exceptional and her passion for her patients and her work is 2nd to none; she lights up the room everytime she enters and makes everyone present feel comfortable, cared for, and makes sure all questions are answered. I am extremely happy I chose Dr. Krucoff as my surgeon.
Sept. 30, 2021
Dr Krucoff was excellent at explaining the surgical options. She listened thoughtfully to my questions and I didn't feel rushed at all. My husband and I were both impressed with her and have recommended her to a friend.
