I find Dr. McCrosson to be very knowledgeable and thoughtful. He is open-minded, and lacks the huge ego that some surgeons carry around, which helps him to better understand patients and their needs. I feel like I'm rambing, as Dr. McCrosson's reputation as a surgeon speaks for itself.

Dr. Mccrosson is without a doubt the best of the best. I had a complicated hip replacement procedure. He handled it flawlessly. Not only is Dr. Mccrosson an excellent surgeon, he is also compassionate, dedicated, ensuring, and sincere. A five star rating is not enough for this doctor.

Highly upset that I could not even get an appointment because the receptionist told me my BMI was too high--What??? At least see me to let me know what is going on and then we can discuss the next avenue. Totally inappropriate for a provider. Not concerned about patient at all. Shame on Dr. McCrosson. Roper is a great facility but this provider is not practicing good patient care which should be his priority. Will not recommend him to anyone.

They refused to see me after 3 people recommended that I see Dr. McCrosson! I was just over the BMI that he will see. I am 5'9 and weigh about 250. The receptionist told me that he doesn't see obese people and I am over his BMI limit. It is bad enough that insurance companies are messed up but a supposedly reputable doctor refusing to see a patient! She said they had another doctor that didn't care about the BMI. I wouldn't go there for nothing now, recommended or not!
