    Dr. Crosby is a very knowledgeable, caring doctor. He was straightforward in helping me decide whether I needed surgery or not. He performed a 2 level ACDF on me and the results have been amazing! All my pain is gone!

    This was my first time to see Dr. Colin Crosby. I found him to be very professional and kind. He listened well to my information, asked appropriate questions, and gave me a diagnosis same day. His treatment plan to avoid surgery please me as well as willing to not give me a bunch of pain meds I didn't want let me know he heard me. Found out we have the same birthday date and knew some common Kentucky area events/people. He came recommended and I am soooooooo pleased to have met him.
