I saw Dr. Crosby for an evaluation of my painful left wrist in July, 2018. I was given results of the MRI he ordered which showed a torn ligament in my wrist area. He educated me on symptoms and offered a surgical option to repair ligament. I chose to have surgery in November, 2018. I have been released by Dr Crosby and am symptom free. Dr Crosby is a wonderful Dr and surgeon and I would highly recommend him to anyone suffering from hand/arm discomfort.

I recently fractured my right elbow twice in the exact same break from two separate falls. I found Dr. Crosby and team to be quite prompt friendly focused and patient oriented. My personal confidence in this Physician is very high. Nurse Marika so kind and friendly. I found the entire reception team the same. KUDOS INDEED

I recently broke my wrist and several friends recommended Dr. Crosby. Dr. Crosby and his entire staff were AMAZING throughout pre-surgery, surgery, and post-surgery. A truly caring doctor who made me feel like I was his only patient. I'm already back playing tennis and golf! Highly recommend Dr. Crosby!

I couldn't be happier with Dr. Crosby. I had an elbow injury that left me with severely reduced motion. I was referred to him for a cubital tunnel and capsular release surgery. He was extremely open and honest with expectations and potential side effects. The entire procedure and more important, the recovery process, was explained in detail before a decision was made. After being more than adequately informed, I made the decision to proceed. It was a fantastic decision and he is a fantastic Dr.

Dr. Crosby is an excellent surgeon! He has worked on both of my hands and I couldn't have asked for better results! I recommend him and the wonderful staff at the Indiana Hand To Shoulder Clinic Methodist and St. Vincent Surgery Center at least once a week! Thank you Dr. Crosby! You Rock!
