What People Say About Dr. Evan Crain, MD

Dr. Crain didn't spend enough time with me and couldn't or wouldn't diagnose simple knee arthritis for me. I felt that he ran me through "the playbook" to a meniscus surgery, which was unsuccessful and with a long and painful recovery period. Another doctor diagnosed me correctly within 15 minutes after a physical exam and x-rays. Dr. Crain led me along for 6 months and I left with knowing nothing. Stay away from this surgeon.

Dr. Crain's skill as a surgeon is unparalleled, and I speak from the experience of seven orthopedic surgeries that he has performed on me. (Two carpal tunnel surgeries, two elbow surgeries, a rotator cuff repair, and two total knee replacements qualify me to comment.) He has been responsible for the relief of chronic pain in each of the joints, which had reached crippling proportions in the case of the knees. The quality of my life has been immeasurably improved by his care and treatment.

I had a torn meniscus from playing tennis. Dr. Crain did surgery and i was back on the court much sooner than i expected. He has a busy practice and excellent staff. Highly recommend.

Also wanted to add I've never had a physician put his hands on my head and jerk my head and positions that he doesn't even go in. This Dr was very unprofessional.

You can have an appt. for 1:30 and be called back @ 3pm. He walks in sits down manipulates leg ask a couple quick questions. You try to elaborate he is up and walking out! The appt. lasted 8 minutes after third appt. (3 strikes you are out). I am sure my insurance was billed for 15mins.Doctors are suppose to give you 15 minutes. I should of sent him a bill for time lost waiting!! I need to go back to retrieve my medical records. The waiting room is over crowded.
