Dr. Crowder seemed great whenever I got to talk to him and his NP was the best as well as the lady at the front desk. The rest of his staff is terrible especially his MA. She was rude, not caring and short (not height). They also have a very stupid message on their phone system that says, "if you call back more times, you will not get any better service!"

Been with Dr. Crowder for the last several years and had spine surgery. The results were good and continue with him to address other issues and problems. Feel confident with his diagnosis and he explains all the details and what to expect.

Doctor Crowder was great his explanation of my problem was very informative and positive for a good outcome. Although the follow up from his office and his assistance has never materialized. That is disappointing.

Instantly Dr. Crowder grasps the crux from my words even while I am somewhat pedestrian in his field. Dr. Crowder, to date, has answers to all my questions always spot-on and exactly on my point. He and his team screwed a couple of cervical joints solid to stop the further deterioration of local nerve paths. The surgery and recovery was inconsequential and relatively pain free, at least the part pertaining to the surgery was pain free. Our conversations have all been awesome in that we can communicate extremely well. I would enjoy talking to Dr. Crowder over a beer sometime. His mind is so fast.

He wouldn't listen to my concerns,wouldn't give me pain meds.he did something wrong in surgery and now I can't walk and in terrible pain. He won't return my calls.Other doctors I've seen say he must have done in surgery.Now I have to have another surgery to repair the damage he did and it might not be fixable.Because of him I might not every walk again or be out of pain.

Dr. Crowder operated on me to relieve spinal stenosis nearly 10 years ago. Prior to the surgery I could barely walk 100 yards without sitting for a minute to relieve the pain in my legs. Two years ago I hiked 120 kilometers of the Way of Saint James in Spain, completing the journey in 6 days. I cannot say enough about him. In our initial consultation he said I shouldn’t do surgery until I absolutely needed it and I would know when that was. Ten months later we met again for the surgery. I was walking the same evening.

My experience was great. Dr. Crowder is awesome and listened to my issue and explained things very well. Very confident in his abilities and so far things are going great after the surgery. Couldn't have gone any better.

Other than regret that I should of opted for surgery earlier, I could not be any happier by how everything turned out. Dr. Crowder, Ms. Looby, Tony, the anestithiologist, and all the office staff were outstanding.
