Dr. Christal performed my hip replacement under extremely difficult circumstances. I had been admitted to the hospital with an e-coli infection that caused extremely severe case of sepsis. In addition, I had shattered my hip. Operating on such a sick patient was very risky; however, Dr. Christal explained the risks clearly, and he was realistic in projecting the outcome. And due to his care and attention, as well as his exceptional skill, the surgery was a success, and my recovery was excellent.

Dr. Crystal is a kind, highly skilled, empathetic and wonderful being. He helped my aging mother and the whole kit and cabboodle of family make it through to the other side of a hip replacement. He is a remarkable surgeon, and a truly fine human being of the best sort. From the bottom of my heart. Thank you Dr. Crystal. Above and beyond...you gave my mother time to make her pain free, happy, ready for the next chapter and the rest of us.....time to feel blessed. Thank you.
