Jeremy Kratz, MD


Jeremy Kratz, MD, is a medical oncologist at UW Health and an assistant professor in the Division of Hematology, Medical Oncology and Palliative Care at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health. He treats patients with all types of cancers of the digestive system. Dr. Kratz specializes in caring for patients with advanced gastrointestinal cancers and neuroendocrine tumors (abnormal growths that occur anywhere in the GI tract).

Using a multidisciplinary care approach, Dr. Kratz provides treatment plans that involve other medical specialists such as interventional radiology, surgery and radiation oncology. He collaborates with each specialist and the patient to develop a successful cancer treatment plan.

In addition to his clinical work, Dr. Kratz is both a medical researcher and physician scientist. His work focuses on developing new therapies for patients with pancreatic cancer and hepatobiliary malignancies (cancers of the liver, gallbladder and bile duct).

Because some of Dr. Kratz’s family members have been directly affected by cancer, his goal is to provide the same excellent care to his patients, that his own family members received during their experience. He listens to understand his patients’ expectations, concerns and values and provides clear, honest information about treatment expectations.

Only by understanding my patients can I give them the best care. I see it as a privilege, as a medical oncologist, to have this window into someone's life.
