Dr. Kramarevsky began seeing patients at NUMC last August. In addition to comprehensive eye exams, Dr. Kramarevsky (or “Dr. K” as patients sometimes call her), provides diabetic eye exams, surgery for complex cases, evaluation and treatment of cataracts, glaucoma and macular degeneration, treatment of eye infections and eye injuries, eyelid procedures, laser procedure (not only for glaucoma and cataracts but also for therapeutic refractive purposes) and Botox injections for functional and cosmetic reasons. Dr. Kramarevsky also maintains a partnership with Phillips Eye Institute, making use of their expertise and resources when necessary.

Dr. Kramarevsky earned her medical degree at the University of Washington Medical School. She completed her internship at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia and residency in ophthalmology at the University of Minnesota in 2003. She completed a one-year fellowship in cornea, anterior segment, surface disease and refractive surgery in 2008.

When Dr. Dannenberg went into retirement at the end of 2013, NUMC completed the purchase of his practice, including equipment and patient records. Several staff from his office also transferred to NUMC, including Optician Sherrie Hertling, Ophthalmic Assistant Denise Sellner, Ophthalmic Assistant Annette Reker, Ophthalmic Assistant Kris Kehren and Ophthalmic Assistant Kathy Sellner. Combined, the team has more than 60 years of experience helping patients with their eye care needs.

The new optical shop at NUMC carries more than 500 designer, fashion, and children’s frames.

The optical shop is open Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. To make an appointment with Dr. Kramarevsky, call 507-217-5011.
