Justin Kruer, MD
Dr. Kruer’s goal with pain management has always been to allow his patients to be in charge of their pain and not have the pain in charge of them. He works with his patients to get them back to work or play as quickly as possible while avoiding the dependence and potential addiction of chronic opioids. Dr. Kruer has been practicing pain management for the past 12 years in northern Kentucky, greater Cincinnati area, and now looks forward to a new adventure in his wife’s hometown of Missoula.
