I had bilateral endoscopic carpal tunnel release. I had very little pain mainly soreness. It's the best way to have your carpal tunnel release. Dr. Crosby is compassionate and caring person. I I am glad I chose him for my surgeon.

I had an accident and almost served the end of my thumb. I met Dr. Crosby at Centennial Emergency Room. He was the most calming and reassuring Doctor I could have seen. He operated on my thumb the next day and now five weeks later, my thumb is doing great. I would highly recommend Dr. Crosby. He did a GREAT job of taking care of me.

Best doctor ever.

I went to Dr. Crosby for a second opinion. Before I left his office I scheduled the surgery on my hand. His bedside manner was excellent and his knowledge of what I needed to have done made me feel very comfortable. I had the surgery on Sept 7th and had the stitches taken out on Sept 16th. During recovery, I only used tylenol and did not need anything stronger. I have already recommended him to a friend who is having trouble with this wrist. I can truly recommend Dr. Crosby to anyone.

WOW! What a GREAT doctor. I had a splinter stuck under my skin on my right hand. Dr. Sam immediately knew what to do and took it out with no issues. Everything went GREAT. Super communicator and very caring. If I ever need any kind of help like this again Dr. Sam is the guy I will go to and I highly recommend him to you. I got an appointment within hours of when I called. Jim P.
