Dr. Crapko is man of few words, but an excellent surgeon. I went in for a hernia repair, it turned into something different and he took care of it perfectly. This is my 3rd gut surgery (for gynecological issues) and i have had the least pain with his technique.

I know he was trying to do his job but with me having this major surgery he should’ve been more compassionate about how I feel and I don’t think he expressed that

Referred from my Gastroenterologist and Oncologist, I found Dr. Crapko to be professional, supportive and excellent at what he does. Most surgery went well and uncomplicated. My post surgical care was excellent (Renown) with ample visits from the surgeon. Communication was good. I felt in very good hands.
