Excellent surgeon. Was extremely nervous about the operation, but he put me at ease and everything went great. Very little pain, quick recovery and great after surgery care.

Dr. Crum was able to get me in so quickly. He spent a long time with me evaluating my hip and I really felt like he cared because he not only took X-rays but he took the time to explain them to me so that I really felt involved in the decisions that were being made about my own body. I would recommend him to anyone.

Dr. Crum is an excellent doctor. I knew I was in good hands from my first visit with him. When he recommended my knee replacement I was very apprehensive but he explained all the hows and whys extensively and put me at ease. I'm so glad Dr. Crum was the surgeon who performed my knee replacement. He is an excellent surgeon and he truly cares for his patients. His skill and genuine care along with his excellent staff has helped my healing to progress quickly. I recommend Dr. Crum to everyone!

Wow! Dr. Crum is the best sports doctor in town. He was very knowledgeable and took the time to explain what was going on with my knee injury. He really cares about his patients and made me feel like I was not just a number to him. I will be recommending all my family and friends to go see Dr. Crum!

I've been to Dr. Crum twice, for different reasons, and find him to be very knowledgeable and helpful. His office staff is very nice and accommodating as well. I see him at his San Marcos location. The office is clean and the visit took less than 30 minutes from sign in to check out!

If you want to feel like you are more than a co-pay, stay away. Too many reasons to list... First doctor I've ever had that answered cell phone while in room with me- after I was in waiting area for 30-45 min. Had to wait several days for appointment for him to say MRI when that was next step anyway, and staff knew I was in pain. Then had to wait longer to have the MRI. Had someone after the fact tell me their experience there was negative as well. Ended up going to Dr. Jennings.

Dr. Crum is an excellent surgeon and I would highly recommend him to others. He easily diagnosed and treated my condition. I had no complications and I returned to my normal activities earlier than expected after surgery. His impressive orthopedic training/background certainly shows.
