Learn about this Doctor

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.Read more

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!

.As a patient living with psoriasis my entire life (67 years), I have been exposed to a number of specialists and treatments, some with very negative results. I sought out a leader in the field of dermatology who had an excellent reputation with working in psoriasis treatment. Dr. Crutchfield has provided such a service for me. He's remained my specialist for at least eight years and will remain so.

An absolutely amazing experience! It was so personal and caring! Jessica scheduled my appointment and she was so fun and energetic. She made me want her as a friend! Alexis and Deanna were truly amazing. They were so encouraging, kind, thoughtful and supportive and I never felt any pressure. Dr. Crutchfield was awesome. I work at a hospital around Doctors all day and he was the epitome of what a doctor should be. Warm, caring, professional and so supportive. I appreciated his honesty and suggest

I am extremely pleased with the results of my Kybella treatments for double chin. Looks very natural, not like I've had plastic surgery, which is what I'd hoped for. The staff at the clinic were all very friendly and professional and I loved working with Dr. Crutchfield. He is a fantastic doctor!
in San Jose, CA |
I've been very pleased with Dr. Crutchfield's care of myself and family members. I trust him with all our skin care concerns and have been extremely happy with our treatment outcomes from acne issues to scar repair. I would recommend him without hesitation and would add he's worth the wait. ?
in Phoenix, AZ |
Very friendly and helpful staff. Dr. Crutchfield is amazing! If you need a 2nd or 3rd opinion, I highly recommend giving Dr. Crutchfield a call.

My family has come here for over a decade, but: 1. Lack of concern. My mother called in w/ a deer tick bullseye & was told that since she hadn't visited recently enough, she couldn't come in. 2. Lack of attentiveness. I was told a mole removal would mean no water for a week, & I said I was traveling to a foreign beach in a week. After removal, they said no water for a few weeks. Ruined a trip of a lifetime. 3. Billing fraud. My 6th visit was billed as a new patient without prior warning.

Doctor Crutchfields treatment has been amazing for my father. He says that he has been battling with this condition for the past 15 plus years and has been to many dermatologists, but he really likes Doctor Crutchfields treatment plan. It has been working for him. He knows the treatment doesn't cure his psoriasis, but he is happy he found something that controls it. He thanks Doctor Crutchfield.
in Minneapolis, MN |
First of all, Dr. Crutchfield and the entire staff provided the best customer service I have seen in any medical office I have visited before. The professionalism is at the highest level. As for my treatment, I am more than satisfied. When I first came to Crutchfield, I did not know what to expect, but the result is overwhelmingly great. I had the best experience at this facility.
in San Jose CA |
To whom it may concern: I recommend Dr. Crutchfield to anyone who needs a good dermatologist. Dr. Crutchfield is great and has a good concerning staff. I had 36 weeks of Photo-therapy and it went really well. I was also treated very well. Thank you Dr. Crutchfield and staff.

For 22 years my mother has been to see many, many Dermatologists. She was told she has rosacea and not much we can do. She tried many creams, but none made her skin better. She thought she was going to die with a bright red face until she saw Dr. Crutchfield. After just one month she has seen big improvements. After 22 years she struggles and in just one month her life has changed and she is happy again.

Dr. Crutchfield is simply awesome! I have done several procedures and they all exceeded my expectations. People always guess that I look 15 or more years younger than my actual age. Several times I have shown my drivers liscense to prove that I am in my 50's. I highly recommend Crutchfield Dermatology!
in St Paul, MN |
I first came to Dr. Crutchfield for ongoing eczema. I had been to other dermatologists but he was the first Dr. to clear my skin. I have since had other treatments at his clinic, and am very happy with the results! He and his staff are great. I recommend Dr. Crutchfield to family, friends and anyone who has skin issues.
Sachse, TX |
The wait times are extremely long and the time with Dr. Crutchfield is extremely short. He is in and out of the room in 5 minutes or less.
