has done several hip replacements. I have confidence in dr. crossett. he has been great and I have recommended him to several others

June 25, 2015

Outstanding knowledge of his practice. Seeks constant improvement in surgical procedures and implants via medical research. Provides confidence to patient through application of state-of-the-art surgical methods. He was the surgeon who provided me a full knee replacement 5 years ago; the results were perfect. Thus, I am most confident that a similar operation on my other knee will result in complete satisfaction. His reputation as an orthopedic surgeon is superb.

Dr. Crossett is the BEST!!!

very good experience

June 16, 2015

Dr. Crossett is clearly a leading orthopedic surgeon, one who solves tricky problems and corrects others's surgeries. He also is the first physician to figure out that I had lymphedema, although I'd consulted with several other doctors. This last visit was simply a follow-up to a knee surgery from last August, and all looked fine.

I love Dr. Crossett. I have referred many patients to him. I think he is a very gifted surgeon and is also a great problem-solver. He isn't anxious to operate right away like some surgeons. He tries every conservative option before he will agree to surgery. I found him very thorough and felt he was in my corner every step of the way.

Dr. Crossett was very concerned about how my knees had progressed since my last visit but was optimistic about helping me, which made me feel more confident about the outcome with him as my doctor.

always has been an excellent experience and have already recommended Dr Crossett to friends!

April 02, 2015

Dr. Crossett came highly recommended and after my visit I can certainly understand. He was not only extremely thorough but very interested in my issues. I have already recommended him to several friends and my visit as only 4 days ago. He was temendous

I had heard wonderful things about Dr Crossett by a previous patient and I was not disappointed in this referral. I have been suffering with this pain for months and it is wearing me out: physically and emotionally. After seeing Dr Crossett I have hope that the end of this pain is in sight and I will have the easiest recovery due to the technique of his surgery.
