I was extremely pleased with the treatment I received from Dr CRIDDLE... He knows what he is doing, is a total professional and reassured me during the visit. He is a no-nonsense guy and that's what I like the most. I highly recommend him. Michael Santullo Albuquerque, N.M.

Dr. Criddle performed a tonsillectomy on my 17yr old daughter. The surgery went great. He made us feel she was in good hands. He is confident and concerned. The nurses at the Hospital spoke very highly of him. The nurses opinion is very important they are the ones that work with him and they see his work.
