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.
