Dr. Crider is a very caring, kind, and knowledgeable physician. I respect him immensely. His staff always calls back and is friendly. His female P. A. is a whole different story. I found her to be very impatient, unkind, & downright rude. I feel sorry for her. She obviously has some issues to work thru. We all have, but they need to be left outside the office and treat people with respect.

the wait for this place is absolutely ridiculous. they have a 2 month wait to get an appointment and im not even a new patient. my vision goes blurry and i have numbness in my legs. the receptionist was not helpful at all and i have called and left messages for the nurses multiple times and not received a call back. i loved seeing dr. crider but nothing that he did for 2 years helped me and trying the same thing over and over is a waste of time and money when there isnt a positive outcome.

I have a rare spinal condition and live in chronic pain. Dr. Crider has gone over and beyond to help me while keeping my meds at a minimum. He and his staff took the time to research my condition. I am always treated with the up most respect and everyone is professional. I hate the wait, and so glad I don't have to go every month - as it would take me away from my job. They are working hard to speed up their wait time. Although, I see different PA's - Dr. Crider is always available.

Dr Crider has given me shots in my back and is the best I have been to! I have had shots from an other pain Dr here in Ga and several in FL - his shots hurt less and are effective. Dr Crider takes the time to listen to me his staff couldn't be nicer.

Gave one star because of the wait EVERY time. I wait hour and a half in waiting room and another hour in exam room. He's a really nice guy but hate the ridiculous wait. I see him because of serious spine issues and have to sit so long just to spend 5 min with him or PA. And to start over with another Dr I would dread.

Tired of waiting. in Atlanta, GA – Jun 24, 2016

Dr.Crider prescribed me 50mg Fetnal Patches to treat my chronic back & leg pain for neurological problems. My father had MS and he knew that. Bc I am young he told me he can't treat me refused to dose me down properly. I had such bad pain on top of withdraw I had to go to the hospital. I have now, gratefully, found a more natural solution to my issues. It breaks my heart to see people take advantage of the sick. Please do your research. He almost killed me. God bless.
