Dr Crawford is very compassionate and caring -and she takes her time with you. She is very careful and cautious-she is conservatives e and doesn’t push surgery unless absolutely necessary. Highly recommend her. We have been to her for several orthopedic issues inbbcluding a surgery. She is consistently great.
Staff and Dr Crawford are knowledgeable and professional. Underwent successful carpal tunnel surgery in both hands, and I'm now back to doing things I haven't been able to do in years. I highly recommend Dr Crawford.

Dr Madhav Crawford repaired a rotator cuff tear for me in 2013. When I injured the other shoulder, I immediately knrw who I would have treat it. Dr Madhav Crawford is an excellent diagnostician. She explains, educates and works to individualize treatments according to my needs. She answers my questions and even draws pictures to help me understand.

Dr. Madhav Crawford took care of me for my fractured wrist. I recommend her without hesitation - she is a skilled surgeon and has good bedside manner. She was dedicated to making sure my pain was relieved and I was making progress with therapy. From the first day, she explained the plan and expectations with my surgery. I'm grateful to the therapy staff especially Cheri for working with my schedule and pushing me to do more each weak.
Elmhurst, IL |
Dr. Crawford took the time to listen to all of my symptoms and issues and explained how to handle the injury in terms that I could understand
in Addison, IL |
I've seen doctor Crawford a lot over these past few months because of an arm injury, and I don't feel there is any better way i could have healed. The Office is always inviting, and she makes a point to listen to my concerns and considerations while guiding me every step of the way to recovery. She insures that I will be readily prepared for anything new i take on, and outlined a safe healing estimate time so when I go back to some extraneous activities I will do them with ease.
in Buffalo Grove, IL |
I shattered my elbow and broke two bones in my arm due to a work accident. I needed a total elbow replacement. Dr. Crawford performed emergency surgery and I'm very thankful for the outstanding job she has done. The level of care and attention I have received has been exceptional. Her staff is very friendly and accommodating. You could not ask for a better doctor or a better outcome. I highly recommend Dr. Crawford's assistance if you are looking for a talented, caring Orthopedic Surgeon
