Dr. Crow is a terrific dermatologist. I have seen him over the past 10 or so years for minor skin cancers and sclerotherapy (spider vein treatments). He is very thorough and very professional. I was referred to him by my regular doctor and wouldn't go anywhere else!

Very unprofessional, did not wash his hands before or after touching me. Smacked gum during entire visit and did not speak clearly. Will not be returning

I'm very sorry you had a bad experience during your visit. I assure you I take personal hygiene very seriously. I find that using an alcohol based hand sanitizer such as Purell is easier on my skin and is actually proven to be as effective as hand washing. I access the Purell dispenser in the hallway between seeing patients. As far as my chewing gum, I have had a very dry throat recently and was using the gum to try and improve my speech. I am sorry if you had difficulty understanding me.
