Dr. Crossett has done a great job replacing both my hips and has either been accessible himself, or his asst. has been readily available to answer any questions or problems along the way.

Dr. Crossett was excellent.

Excellent discussion with the doctor. Gave me very clear criteria for knowing when knee replacement is warranted and also provided realistic expectations for what new replacement could accomplish. We opted for less aggressive treatment and monitoring.

I have had a years-long relationship with this physician and my experiences with him and his office staff have always been very satisfactory.

This provider is one of the best that I have seen in a while .

Everything was fine.

I felt this appointment was a waste because one of my disc of my mri did not get mailed to their office and I had a lot of concern because the radiologist felt the lesion on my hip was possibly cancer and avascular necrosis and the doctor dismissed this, he really did not want to talk about it. Just the fact of me losing weight. He stated my bmi was 52 and it was 46. My glomerular function rate came way down and I have been holding fluid. He stated the 5lbs was not the reason for the gain and it was food.I was on prednisone for 2 months and he questioned the reason why and the amount I was on. he said he would not see me again until I got my weight down and I have been having a lot of problems.I felt he did not take my concerns into consideration. I had questions to go over and never got to talk about them.

I was treated with the utmost care and genuine concern for my problem. The staff was super in all they did and made me feel comfortable. It was obvious the doctor had reviewed my x-rays and former issues before seeing me.
