Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Crane Jr "I am a physician limiting my practice to diseases and surgery of the eyes and visual system. I enjoy treating patients of all ages, and do not shy away from complicated situations. As an osteopathic physician I try to incorporate holistic principles, approaching the patient as a human being first, and someone with an eye disease second. I enjoy treating people with a wide variety of eye diseases."
