Dr. Crutchfield III's Care Philosophy

Less is more. I like to do lots of little things that create very dramatic and satisfying results. When it comes to cosmetic dermatology, I tend not to emphasize any one particular treatment. I like to carefully listen to my patients and find out what bothers them. I then create a program that blends several techniques to give them the results they desire. As a Clinical Professor of Dermatology, I teach to strengthen my specialty and keep my skills sharp. As a perfectionist, I am constantly learning to provide the highest quality of care I can to my patients.

We've used several derms over the years, and Dr. Crutchfield is simply the best. His staff is professional and friendly. Kids feel welcome. From the first appointment, we knew he was good. It took a little while to get an appointment and quite a few people were in the waiting room when we arrived. They advised us to plan for a wait and we were pleasantly surprised it was pretty efficient. Dr. Crutchfield has treated each of us. He is a great personality, and his diagnoses are always right on!

I came to see Dr. Crutchfield for acne troubles. I have tried numerous OTC and prescription regimens, but none ever worked. Dr. Crutchfield was able to quickly come up with a game plan. After nine months I can happily say IT WORKED! My lingering acne has cleared up and I no longer have massive breakouts. I highly recommend Dr. Crutchfield; both he and his staff are amazing and the best around - especially Sherri!
