My 98 yr. old mother broke her elbow and was sent to Dr. Crater. I am so amazed and thankful at how kind and patient he was with my mother. He spoke to her and treated her as if she was his own family member. He spoke directly to her and explained everything to her with patience and in a manner that she could understand and again, with such kindness. Her treatment is going very well and Mom is very happy. He is a wonderful and exceptional doctor and I highly recommend him.

I saw Dr Crater for a consult-i have a separated/displaced collarbone. I waited 10 minutes in the waiting room & they maybe 5 minutes in the exam room. He was cordial, professional, very knowledgeable & straight forward. I appreciated ALL of those qualities! :) His nurse was very professional, smart & kind also. The front office staff was welcoming, kind & VERY patient with me. I am voing back to see them all next wednesday again. I know that i am in the VERY BEST Ortho practice ever. I will send all friends & family to see Dr Crater. I am a VERY picky & particular patient too! Lol. I SOOO appreciate ALL that are in the practice! Thank you SO much! Lisa ;)

Dr. Crater did surgery on me in January to reattach a severed quadriceps tendon. Serious stuff! Three and a half months later I was running again. He's a miracle worker! I very much appreciated the clear and complete way he explained all that needed to be done and then followed through. I couldn't be happier with him.

Dr. Crater listened to me, explained what he could do and what I could do and I left feeling hopeful and encouraged after consulting two other surgeons who would discuss only surgery. An added plus is his sense of humor. I will recommend him to my fellow arthritic friends.

Dr. Crater is a great doctor. He explains things very well. He had to do surgery twice on my broken finger, since I wasnt able take it easy with my husband having surgery the first time I did. He took the time to call me personally and tell me that we had to do a second surgery. He cares a lot about his patients. I would recommend him to anyone!!!! Tammy

Dr. Crater treats both my husband and myself and we think he is great. We have painful arthritis in joints and we come in for shots. The first doctor to hit the mark every time. We hope he has no plans to move because it is very hard to find the good ones.
