Verified Patient Reviews
I arrived pretty early, however my appointment time was 9:00 and I was out by 9:30. Friendly staff. Went in with knee pain, was worried that he would tell me to stop working out but he didn't. I was reassured that he was a knowledgeable physician when he advised me that it would be more detrimental to discontinue my workouts as opposed to modifying them.
Very nice and intelligent doctor. Front office was very kind.
Open, willing to lesson to my concerns. Provided adequate answers to my questions. Helped me feel comfortable with the diagnosis.
Loved everyone in his office. From Dr. Creasman, the woman who did my x-ray, his assistant to the woman at the front desk for check-in; everyone was so nice and friendly. Dr Creasman took his time during my exam and I'm so happy I selected him. His office is nice, spacious and conveniently located.
Well organized and friendly atmosphere.
My visit with Dr. Creasman was wonderful. New patient check in went smoothly and expeditiously. Very little wait time before I was called back and very little wait time to actually see the doctor. He addressed my concerns and gave me options of treatment.
The doc was professional and answered my questions. The wait time was just under two hours, which seems unreasonable. Other reviews mentioned this, so at least I was expecting it.
The Dr came in and did not introduce himself just started speaking really fast about my x-ray. He was standing up and I was in my wheelchair. I extended my hand to him and introduced myself. He stared at my hand and eventually give it a quick shake. I then asked what he was saying about my x-ray. He said it didn't matter and as he walked out the door he told the nurse to send me for an MRI. He was out the door so fast. My husband and I thought surely he was coming back. We asked the nurse if he was coming back. She apologized repeatedly and said everyone hates how fast and impersonal he is. He never asked where does it hurt or do you have questions, nothing. 1 hour drive there, 1 hour wait, 2 minute or less with the Dr.. Before we left his office I used one of the 2 restrooms. The first one had no toilet paper or hand towels so I used the second restroom. It had toilet paper but no soap or hand towels. As we went past the check out desk I mentioned that there were no hand towels or soap. She sighed and said there is never soap. Hmm get me out of here! I left so disappointed in the whole situation.
The office staff was efficient. I was seen promptly and the doctor did a great job of explaining everything to me.
I was able to get an appointment the very next day of my first visit to ZocDoc.com. I was able to print out the required forms online and have them completed prior to my office visit making check in a breeze. The entire staff was professional, from the office personnel and nurses, Xray tech and doctors assistants to Dr Creasman, even the intern was very professional. I would highly recommend Dr Creasman as my visit exceeded any expectations I may have had.
i was given info on testing and never received it.I need ifo done for out oatient procedures.
Dr. Creasman is knowledgeable, efficient, and personable. I needed an X-ray, which was done in the office before he saw me so that he already had some knowledge of my injury before he examined me. I had an appointment for an MRI before I left the building, and I'll see Dr. Creasman again next week.
Dr. Creasman is friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive to my needs. He provided a options that I may not have thought were possible.
Dr. Creasman was at the top of his game. Never have I had a Doctor do and care for me at this capacity. He was able to answer all my and my family quetion. I received immediate medical attention to help relieve my pain. Also, given a plan "B" just incase. From booking the appointment to walk out the office door was one of the highest quality visits we have ever experienced. Thank You Dr. Creasman and Staff! Albert C.
It was worth the wait time. Good information and fast appointment once back to see the doc. Xray and MIR available at the office.
Great, professional doctor. Gets called for emergency surgeries at nearby hospitals which caused the delay in being seen for my appointment today. Office staff was extremely professional and called me in advance to let me know so I could reschedule if I did not have time to wait.
My appointment was at 9am and was not seen until 11:30 am. I asked the nurse if this was normal and she said that it depends on the day. The X-Ray lady was very nice and professional. The Doctor is Nice but I felt like he was in a rush to get out. He spent no more than 5 minutes in the room. No real exam. I will not go back due to the long wait time and the fact that I feel like a number.
Other than the wait time it was very good.
great doctor thank you
I really, really liked Dr. Creasman. He explained my knee problem in a way that has not been explained to me before. He gave me options that I had not given before. I have decided to cancel my surgery that I had schedule with another doctor and have Dr. Creasman. He took the time with me to answer all my questions and explain my condition even though he was running behind. He did not make me feel like he was rushed. I felt like he genuinely cared.
Dr.Creasmam was very nice and professional. All of the staff members were very polite and helpful... Thank you....
The doc, his front desk staff, and his xray person are amazing. I was not impressed with the nurse's knowledge or ability to help answer questions or make me feel confident. I loved the doctor's attitude on treatment and their ability to get me into an MRI right away. I was not happy with the 1 45 min wait in lobby (uncomfortable and boring) but I know that was rare as someone called out sick and put them behind.
Besides the fact that I had a really long wait the doctor was super awesome! He was very truthful and caring about my condition. Gave me all the options available and finally a doctor was straight forward about what was going. Definitely would wait an hour and a half to see him again!
First saw him 14 years ago. He was sharp, smart, decent and skilled. He's still that way. Although I should add, that under "bedside manner", it's best if your bed is on wheels and already moving. Quickly to the point, and dilly-dallying just doesn't happen. Try to be prepared before a visit (as you would with any physician). Clearly top notch in his field.
Surprised no one let me know that Dr. Creasman was running as late as he was because of surgery. It would have made the wait a little more bearable.
He was very kind doctor wanting to resolve my problem. Very professional and negligible.
I was very satisfied with the service and the professional attitude of the staff including Dr. Creasman.
Wait time is ridiculous if you get seen. Office staff could use an attitude adjustment. Dr. Creasman is always in a rush.
I was very dissapointed i checked in at 9:42 with paperwork ready and i got called back to the room at 11:16 sat in there for about ten to fifteen minutes at least waiting to see doctor he finally came in saw me maybe 2 minutes then just left without discussing anything else,then the assistant just brought me a script for an MRI so i left very upset.
The man is great...........
very satisfied with dr. and the receptionist was very nice
He's a fast talker. He doesn't really let u get alot in. He wants to get to the issues resolved.
Visited with Dr. Creasman for a second opinion. He was very friendly and educated me and offered less invasive procedure another doctor failed to.
as expected. you wait awhile, but when he's with me I want his attention too so I don't mind. he is an excellent surgeon.
I was very pleased, still having lots of pain issues that are pretty much the same before my surgery. Dr.Creasman says it will get better with time.
He was only in the room a few minutes and didn't ask hardly any questions regarding my knee, what I had done to help my knee. Mentioned an MRI if I had the money to get one done. Not really satisfied with the visit.
The office was in need of cleaning and greatly in need of updating.
typical hurried doctor. No time spent asking questions and ZERO time listening to the few that were asked.
Flexible and all of his staff were knowledgable and been working there awhile great soc wish I found him earlier
the wait was way too long and I thought he knew his stuff but thought I would get a more thorough examination but maybe he knew the issue with just looking at my xrays. he didn't ask to many questions, shake my hand and introduce himself or anything like that and I expected that being a first time patient.
I had quite a wait time, once seen it was pretty fast. I felt like he spoke more to his assistant than me, the patient. They didn't really explain in depth the MRI & xray - it's like they talked with each other and not really me the patient. I felt like a third wheel. He got the job done but it didn't really feel like a thorough visit with the patient.
Excellent! Very kind and caring. Sat down and explained different options for treatments and what he would recommend. My family and I were very pleased and grateful.
The doctor validated my concern about the issue I came to see him about and didn't treat the issue as if I were a hypocondriac!! He was pleasant and I enjoyed meeting him.
Doctor runs a factory. In and out with little personal attention.
