What People Say About Dr. John Cromwell, MD
Reply
I was referred to Dr. Cromwell for a complicated situation that wouldn't heal. I was emotionally drained and ready to give up. Dr. Cromwell was very empathetic and had a great bed side manor. During my exam he was kind, patient and respectful. He went over all the situations it could be and took the time to answer all the questions I had as well as my family. Surgery day I was so scared, but surgery had the best outcome and he fixed my problem. I would recommend him to anybody!

When Dr. Cromwell had his practice in Memphis, he performed the two step j-pouch surgery for me in 2008. I have been doing well since the takedown surgery in March, 2009.
