Have you seen Dr. Christopher Croot?
Want him back
Posted on July 21st, 2017
He was wonderful to a scared 73 yr old lady who had moved from Natchez needing an oncologist and not knowing anyone. My new primary suggested Dr. Croot who was just what I needed....a plain spoken dr but caring and very concientous. I had just completed chemo and radiation and needed aftercare for a while. He took time to reassure me but said he wouldn't keep anything from me. Because I had not been given the Herceptin that I should've had after surgery with Her2-neu -3, he explained by drawing a diagram how it could spread to other organs. It was too late to give it now. It was so good being explained to. He is a fine doctor. Louisville is lucky to have him. I want him back!
One of the best

He has done an excellent job managing cancer in my mother-in-law as well as my father. Dr. Croot knows his stuff in excruciating detail. With my background, I know a little about cancer biology, but his mind operates at the genius level. He shoots straight with people, and doesn't pull any punches. He may be a little too direct for some people, especially if they don't really want to hear/know the truth. He is passionate about what he does, and truly cares for the well-being of his patients. On the other hand, I can tell--based on experiences with my mother-in-law--that he's not the kind to put up with unnecessary crap from a patient or a patient's family. He's certainly the best medical oncologist in North Mississippi and probably among the best in the Southeast. I don't care what any of the other reviewers say, we're fortunate to have someone of Dr. Croot's caliber in this corner of Mississippi.
very smart and kind dr

Wonderful and extremely smart Dr. Very kind and sympathetic and will always tell you the truth in a way you can understand. Spends an abnormal amount of time with his patients and makes sure you understand completely. Would recommend to anyone.
At least he cured my cancer...

I was in stage four of non-hodgkins lymphoma when I was assigned Dr. Croot as my oncologist. I was told by him I had 2 large tumors, one in my abdomen/pelvic area (which was big enough to cause several fractures in my hip) and one in my chest just behind my sternum. When I went to Jackson to have a PET scan, they told me that I had 2 other tumors that I didn't even know about. When I asked him about it, he acted like he knew the whole time (yeah, right!). He did indeed cure my cancer, and I've been in remission for about 8 months now. But I got really tired of him asking me things that I felt like he should know (i.e. what medications I'm taking, when is my next PET scan scheduled, etc.). Last time I went for a check-up he told me they would mail out my next PET scan appointment within the next week...3 weeks later I still haven't heard anything and can't get his office to return my calls. I also didn't appreciate being treated like I'm a some sort of junkie pill head because I asked for a refill on my Lorcet after they were gone. It took me 5 months to complete a 60 day supply, mind you, but his nurse thought it would be okay to make me feel like a heroin addict when I aked for more. Cancer is a hard thing to deal with and at times is also very, very painful. She actually said to me, "Well, hun, we don't like to just write out pain pill prescriptions." I laughed and told her she should probably get used to it because she works at a CANCER CLINIC! I'm grateful for the fact that he cured my cancer, but overall I feel like I should have received better care.
Will not respond to problems

When I reported for my first chemo at his satellite office I had to wait almost two hours because the main office had not sent my formulation. Later when I experienced Afib I could not contact Dr Croot to determine what to do about my chemo. His office would not return phone calls to me, my primary care physician nor my chemo provider. Same thing happened when I contracted a respiratory infection.
