Excellent experience

August 11, 2016

I feel that I have one of the best surgeons available. He takes the time to monitor my condition and explain the best strategies to alleviate any concerns that I may have. His resident drained my knee, and she did an excellent job.

Dr. CROSSETTE has been my orthopedic surgeon for about 15 years. Sometimes my annual visits are a bit rushed. This last visit was awesome!!I know he ranks among the best in our city, and this Tuesday, he gave me the best. I TRUST HIM THROUGHALLY. He is a top surgeon and I am happy to have him. Key during your visits is to write down all questions, and then listen well. He usually moves quickly, and it is easy to miss something

staff was very helpful, but dr was NOT clear at all on his post operative care, does not spend enough time with patient, and leaves the room when finished without a word. very confusing experience

August 02, 2016

This was my first visit. Dr. Crossett and his staff were very courteous and professional. All my concerns were addressed. Dr. Crossett saw my anxiety, with the thought of having another knee replacement. and his manner put me at ease. I would highly recommend his services to anyone.

Caring and concerned. Started a conservative course of treatment. Will monitor and advance the level of treatment after the first course if necessary.

this was my first visit. I am extremely satisfied and will see them again.
