What People Say About Dr. James Crutcher Jr, MD
Reply
In Feb. of 2017 Dr. Crutcher performed a knee replacement on my right knee. It’s now June 2019 and I’m in more pain and less mobile than before the surgery. I too tried to get help from Dr. Crutcher only yo be told there’s nothing wrong. At this point my quality of life has suffered to the point that I need pain medication every day. The recovery from the first surgery was so painful yet I don’t think I have any other option than to have a second surgery.

Dr Crutcher replaced my hip over a year ago, and I am still in pain. At each visit, I would complain about my pain, only to be told “your x-rays are fine” and ushered out the door. At this point I am in more pain than I was before the surgery and am scheduled for an mri and an appointment with another surgeon. It has all been a miserable experience.
