Patient Comments (7)
in slo |
first appointment and really impressed , caring a nd listens
in Los Osos, CA |
I find Dr. Crittenden to be very personal and caring. She gave me her cellphone number during a difficult health time. She is amazing! I would recommend her to anyone.
in Arroyo Grande, CA |
She was a scattered quack. She asked me what kind of medication I wanted to take????what??
in Atascadero, CA |
Sad to say you are better off going to a Veterinarian if you go to this doctor. Animals get better care and empathy. Dr. C. is probably a nice person outside of her profession, but has little patience and too much power when it comes to playing with people's mental and physical well being. I am under the care of specialists who can not prescribe me the medication I have been on for years because Dr. C. refuseses to fill them at my exspense. I am looking for another doctor. You can have her.
in San Luis Obispo, CA |
I wont be going back to this physician. She came in the room disorganized and seeming distracted. She sat with me telling me to stop taking vitamins and all supplements because the "Average American diet" is enough. We talked briefly about my PMDD...her response, "Eventually you will get used to it" and "Why not just take a few days off work every month." I understand everyone practices medicine differently but this was just crazy.
in Los Osos, CA |
Dr. Crittenden has been my physical for years. I find her extraordinarily caring, helpful, professional and informative.
in San Luis Obispo |
She is very caring and thorough, and takes plenty of time to answer questions and explain things.
