Love Dr Crane. I have been a patient of his for many years having switched to him when my previous Doctor in the group retired. Most of his office staff is horrible and have attitudes. The X-ray technician is the only staff member who is actually nice An important thing for me is that blood and X-rays are taken right in the office so you don’t have to go to a lab.

Dr. Crane is fine. His staff is horrible. They do not answer phone calls and when they do they are super dismissive and rude. It took 20 days and 5-6 phone calls for me to get results. Looking for a new rheumatologist? I wouldn't do it.

Dr. Crane is amazing. I decided to see him for a second opinion, and he put me on a medication that several other doctors felt was too mild for me. Four months later, I'm feeling so much better. Dr. Crane is thorough, has a great bedside manner, and his office is very efficient. I highly recommend him!

Dr Crane and his staff and clinic is top of the line all the way when it comes to dealing with autoimmune diseases. Unlike other doctors who just waste your times, Dr Crane focuses on the cause and immediately treats it aggressively. He is the best rheumatologist and all my colleagues agree.

The staff are the RUDEST people I have encountered anywhere. The phlebotomist, on top of being rude, decided it is appropriate to suck on a lollipop while drawing my blood. Chris, who was supposed to call in my prescription to my pharmacy left me waiting while she chatted with her mom in her work area. It was only when I went in her work area a 2nd time that she finally helped me, not once looking at me when she addressed me, and acted like she was doing me a huge favor by doing her job. During

Dr. Crane is very efficient and reliable. He makes extra time to see his patients, I've had to see him before work and he came in at 7:30am! His staff is extremely helpful. Whenever I call I always ask for Gina, she listens and is always willing to help me get in to see the doc immediately. Overall, great doctor and terrific staff.

Dr Crane was a pleasure to deal with. However, the front desk staff is the worse I have ever seen. Super rude, with me and with other patients, rude on the phone with other people, rude with the doctor while he was in the exam room with me. I am shocked by what i've just seen now. After the apointment, i went back to the front desk to ask where to get the x-rays and if I should pay a copay now or if they will mail a bill later, and the "lady" aggressed me for not being patient enough!

I began with doctor Crane when another doctor in the practice left. I am very happy with the care he has given me.

Dr Crane has monitored my RA and PsA treatments. He has been forthcoming and sincere. But most of all, he understands and truly cares. As a person who is wheelchair bond, the office team treats me with the utmost of respect. Making my visit as welcoming as possible. Highly recommend!
