Dr. Crates was very good throughout the whole surgery process. Extremely personable with his patients, never waited more than 10 minutes in the waiting room. Each appointment took no more than 30 minutes. His P.A., Jackie, is super sweet and very knowledge about procedures, ect. Highly recommend!

I saw Dr Crates for RSD/CRPS, which left me unable to walk for over 2 years. He is very knowledgeable and kind. He confirmed my diagnosis. Most doctors don't know what RSD/CRPS is. Wonderful Doc.
