I saw him in the hospital multiple times. Needless to say, he read the results of simple tests wrong, and literally never bothered to follow up afterward except go "you're fine" as I was still under anesthesia in a wheel chair. The only way I found it he was wrong was due to the my WONDERFUL GP. Nice man, horrible doctor.

It was my first visit with Dr Crespo. He took his time with me and I felt very comfortable with him. He seemed very knowledgeable. Office staff was all very nice.
Thank you for your review. Our patients are the most important part of our practice, and given them the best quality of care is our goal.
