I saw Doctor Crimmins for a minor injury to the middle finger in my right hand that was causing me some pain after two months. Dr. Crimmins had an X-ray done and took the time to explain the nature of the injury and my future prognosis After seeing him I felt reassured that I did not suffer a significant injury. I liked Doctor Crimmins because of his expertise and kind and caring manner. I felt confident after being examined by him that if I sustained a major injury to my hand, Doctor Crimmins could successfully treat it. Finally, from the time I made my appointment to the day of my office visit, his staff was exceptionally helpful to me.

Outstanding! I was impressed with everything from the moment I engaged with an administrative assistant to schedule an appointment to the the exam by Dr. Crimmins. The staff prepares you by anticipating questions and giving an overview of your visit. Dr. Crimmins is friendly, compassionate, skilled, and attentive. He made me feel comfortable during his initial exam, during surgery, and at the post-op exam. He made sure that I would have all the answers I needed by providing contact information of his team and making himself available. To be honest, I felt like I was on vacation at a five-star hotel. I cannot think of anything Dr. Crimmins and his team could have done to make my treatment visits and surgery any better. Dr. Crimmins and his team have set the standard for health care professionals. I give him my highest recommendation.

Dr. Crimmins has an extraordinary way of making any fear you may have change into "We've got this, you're going to be fine." His demeanor is kind, confident, reassuring and he actually talks with you; not at you. The surgery was a success and my incision is almost invisible; and that's after only two weeks. Excellent work Dr. C. You're definitely on my personal referral list.

Dr. Crimmins was recommended to me by a physical therapist that works in the Ortho field when diagnosed with a mucus cyst on my finger. Fantastic knowledge and great personality. Office is so well run and everyone helpful. I had a minor procedure and he explained what's happening with my arthritis. Would highly recommend. I used to work in healthcare and definitely understand why my friend recommended him.

I would not recommend this doctor at all. I brought my elderly mother in for follow-up care for a broken thumb. Dr Crimmins said it was not appropriate to have any surgery and kept her in a soft wrapping. He was abrupt in answering my questions and concerns. I asked to see the X-rays, when I would try to look at them he would turn it off. This happened multiple times, I gave up. I went to another dr, the thumb was not healing properly and they put her in a cast to prevent further damage.

my husband and I had a very pleasant experience with his appointment. We were referred to Dr. Crimmims because our first doctor was not able to figure out what was wrong with my husband's elbow. Dr. Crimmins took time with my husband and was very through.
