Drive-thru, incompetent, medical care show details Drive-thru, incompetent, medical care
by Allen K on Aug 17th, 2015

On my first visit, as I was filling out the new patient forms, his staffer told me : "Dr. Crimmins has to be in surgery in 15 minutes". Teriffic!!! So what does Crimmins do? Doesn't even take an x-ray, wiggles my thumb for about 10 seconds, tells me how he has done "a thousand of these", gives me a cortisone shot, and sends me on my way. He also seemed to doubt the severity of my injury (a metal bar striking the back base of my thumb at work). When I go to see him the next time, all of a sudden, it's no longer covered by workers comp. BTW, I did not miss one day of work because of this injury, worked with hand pain the whole time, and to this day still have pain. On that second, and last, visit, which I wound up paying for, he tells me I have some type of "degenerative condition" in my hand. (Which seems to be the only place on my body where I have this...right where the trauma happened!) He also talks in medical language that, unless you went to medical school, you can not understand. I think this is by design. If two years later you still want pain in your hand, Dr. Crimmins is the doctor for you.

my family doctor wanted me to see a hand specialist because of my deformed swollen and painful finger due to osteoarthritis. He would not even look at my finger and told me to see a rheumatolist. He was very rude and could have at least looked at my finger. The finger has gotten worse and I will have to see another hand specialist.

I just had my surgery with Dr Crimmins and I am so happy with his work and his bedside manner. I was being tossed around in the HMO rat race being told it was all in my head with no tests being done. I decided to use Dr Crimmins for a second opinion because he had worked on my arm and hands 10 yrs ago. Within one month he had me diagnosed and in to get the problem corrected and I am finally on the road to recovery after 10 months of pain.
