What People Say About Dr. Allen Criswell, MD
Reply
In 2007 I was in a very bad accident. I fell from 12.5 feet which resulted in shattering both of my heels. At this point I have had 7 surgeries. Dr. Criswell did 6 of them. I've encountered many ortho surgeon he is by far the best! When I was first released from the hospital I was very sick his nurses would get me straight into a room to wait rather than the waiting room. He was very informative and predicted future problems all of which he was right!

I met Dr.Allen Criswell in 1982. I had survived a deathly car wreck in which my right femur was crushed completely. I was later told that my chances of walking ever again were slim. I was one of the fortunate patients that did walk out of Memorial Herman. I had a second surgery with a happy ending. 2016 and today I will be seeking his treatment for a plan to strengthen my leg as I grow even older with a treatment I can trust for the rest of my life.
