Dr. Crotwell took time to follow up and discuss the progress with the problem I was having with my foot. He also listened when I talked about increased pain in another area of the foot. He examined the foot and explained it was due to the angle my foot had been positioned while previously wearing a cast! I had developed tendinitis. Problem solved! Good listener!

I have been seeing Dr Crotwell for close to 30 years. I have RA and Osteo arthritis and was told by other doctors I would be in a wheelchair before I was 40. I am now 61 years old and still on my feet, and I am not addicted to pain medicine. I thank him ever visit for all his help and encouragement to continue physical therapy and to keep moving. Dr Crotwell is the best!
