It started out as shoulder pain. Thinking I was tense from stress I didn't pay it much attention. A year or so later the pain moved across my shoulders and into my neck. I saw Dr. Crosby for the first time and he did X-rays and ordered a MRI. The results were I needed to have an anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF.) I did, Dr. Crosby was the surgeon, and today I am perfectly fine - NO PAIN! Thank you Dr. Crosby for being the kind and caring doctor that you are.

For the last four/five years I have had a progressive pain down my left leg. After several non-surgical attempts to relieve that pain I finally had the surgery, Spinal Lumbar Fusion. The very first thing I did when I woke up in the recovery room was to move my left leg, and for the first time in almost five years I was completely pain free. Dr. Crosby is a wonderful doctor and a skilled surgeon, and I highly recommend him. Thank you Dr. Crosby.

Dr. Crosby is top of the line when it comes to doctors. He fit me in when I had a spinal injury and he really took the time to listen to my questions and concerns.

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.
