Dr. Crandall is the biggest joke in town, a scam artist all his patients know this as well as the entire medical community in Phoenix. He makes most his money paid By pharmaceutical company's putting their implants in your body. He does not disclose that to patients. He messed me up, then refused to see me, and stated I was no longer a patient. He's a disgrace to his profession and ALL THE DOCTORS IN TOWN KNOW IT. DO NOT LET CRANDALL PERFORM SURGERY ON YOU, YOU WILL REGRET YOU EVER MET HIM.

I was sent to Dr Crandall by Workmans Comp. He is soft spoken and pretends to be attentive. So, I beared my sole and explained the pain and my suffering to him. Three other Neurosurgeons , one of them being Dr Hott, reported that I require cervical spine fusion. I'm in so much pain that I can barely get out of bed and I get headaches that are unbearable. The MRIs don't lie. They show herniated discs but Dr Crandall ignored all the test results and reported back to workmans comp nothing wrong.

I am one of Jehovah's Witnesses I told Dr. Crandall prior to scheduling surgery on my neck that I would not take blood transfusions. He said he would respect my wishes and us a cell salvage on me to conserve blood loss. But, the day of surgery as they where wheeling me into the operating room, they told me I had to sign a form allowing him to give me a blood transfusion in case "he needed it to save my life." I said I would not sign it . So Dr. Crandall cancelled the surgery right then.

He was very patient with me. I felt very confident in him. His PA Claire is absolutely wonderful. Katherine goes above and beyond any MA I have ever met. Lori(surg. Scheduler) was so patient and very helpful. He has the BEST staff ever!!!!

I had been suffering for years with folks telling me all kinds of things. I went to pain treatment for PT, nerve blocks, nerve oblations etc.... It was not enjoyable or possible to even get up in the morning sometimes.
