My whole experience from the front reception to checking out was the best I've ever had. And I'm 59 so I've been to (and through) a lot of procedures. So professional, so nice...and so thorough. I walked out feeling like Iwas completely schooled on my conditions and in good hands. That has never happened. FINALLY found a great Doctor/Team to take care of me. I'm sure I'll be seeing them again...because, you know, I'm getting old. Glad I found them ...??

The doctor hardly spent any time analyzing the issue and letting me know what might be the cause and how the treatment is going to help. I came out with the same amount of knowledge I had before I entered.

Dr. Crawford was incredibly friendly, interested in me as a person, and when I reacted poorly to pain from a procedure was compassionate and helpful. I would highly recommend Dr. Crawford to other ortho patients.

Dr. Crawford and his team provide excellent care. His initial diagnosis was spot on to what the MRI showed and the surgery was immediately successful.

Diagnosis: Right shoulder partial-thickness rotator cuff tear Doctor Crawford was very professional and personable and took his time to properly and accurately diagnose the issue. There was very little wait time in general and an X-ray andultrasound were done immediately onsite. All of my questions and concerns were also addressed. Highly recommend!

The offices staff is friendly and professional. X-rays on site were great and really cut down on the diagnosis time. I was given a time line, expectations and a plan. Very much appreciated that!
