Best cortisone injection I have ever received; practically no pain at all; immediate relief for my knee. I appreciate that he took the time to consider a long-term plan to resolve my issues before immediately turning to surgery.

very pleased with speed and courtesy of all staff.

Everything was great. I was very impressed by the caring staff, by the respectful and thoughtful physician interactions, and by the quality differential diagnosis. The only negative was that the docs didn't quite include the patient in their final deliberations about what treatments/follow-ups to recommend.

Dr. Crossett is AMAZING..The surgery performed on my right knee made it possible for me to walk without the AWFUL pain I endured for 5 years from a previous surgery from another physician. It is like a new beginning for me.

Some of the negative comments I've seen about Dr. Crossett surprise me, but I guess everyone has their own experiences. Dr. Crossett has always been the ultimate professional and has always taken the time to deal with any concerns that I may have. He has done several of my surgeries and has used techniques that I feel many doctors would not even try. We have several good orthopedic surgeons in the area in which I live, but I continue to drive 35 miles to see Dr. Crossett.

Doctor Crossett was very confident, capable and helpful. I am not presently a candidate for knee or hip surgery but if I needed surgery, i would definitely consider him as a choice.

From the moment I arrived until the completion of the visit and scheduling my next appointment the staff was courtesy and friendly. Great customer service is hard to find these days but this office delivered.
