Great doctor. Diagnosis was spot on and treatment plan worked. Went here for 2nd opinion and I was not disappointed. He is good communicator and does not seemed rushed like other doctors. He gave his utmost attention and did not letme leave until he answered all my questions and felt satisfied with the treatment plan. I guess it helps that his a former professor.

Dr. Crowley was very personable and had great bedside manner. He actually took the time to look at my condition instead of just doing a cursory glance. He offered me medication but was not pushy and insistent that I get itlike so many other doctors that want to make some extra cash. He saw me right on time, didn't rush me, and even allowed me to talk about other issues that I hadn't mentioned when I made my appointment. I would definitely recommend him.
