Dr. Alan P Crowther has the following 2 specialties
- Pulmonary Disease
A pulmonologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to the lungs and respiratory tract.
These specialists are similar to critical care specialists in that their patients often require mechanical ventilation to assist their breathing.
Pulmonologists diagnose and treat patients with conditions such as asthma, cystic fibrosis, asbestosis, pulmonary fibrosis, lung cancer, COPD, and emphysema. Exposure and inhalation of certain toxic substances may also warrant the services of a pulmonologist.
Some of the tools and tests pulmonologists use to diagnose a patient are a stethoscope in order to listen for abnormal breathing sounds, chest X-rays, CT scans, blood tests, bronchoscopy, and polysomnography.
- General Practice
A general practitioner is similar to a family practitioner in that they treat patients of all ages with a variety of health concerns. These doctors treat everyday ailments, some acute and chronic diseases, and also provid health checkups, physicals, inoculations and preventative care.
General practitioners differ from family practitioners because they are not required to complete an additional residency in family medicine after completing their medical school residency. Like family practitioners, general practitioners will also provide referrals to patients who are in need of a specialist.

I saw Dr. Crowther for a varicose vein, and being my first time, I had SO any questions! I asked them all, and he thoroughly answered them all. I didn't feel rushed through the process. Matter of fact, when he would answer, he would ask me if I had any more questions to ensure I was taken care of. This kind of quality care isn't common. Most offices seem to be factory-like in that they get you in, see you as quickly as possible, then send you on your way. Dr. Crowther is arguably the best doctor I have ever been to. Thorough communication, he sets realistic recovery expectations, and maintains relatable professionalism throughout the visit. Highly recommend him!
Until I visited with Dr. Crowther, I had no idea that the painful swelling in my feet and ankles were due to vein issues. I had 3 treatments with him, and suddenly I have more energy than I've had in years. I can fly across the country and my feet aren't swollen when I get there, and my legs look more attractive because all of the ugly veins are gone. Dr. Crowther takes his time with his initial visit to make sure he understands all of your problems. I highly recommend him - he's very friendly and professional also.
I was having significant pain in my legs and, after doing some research, discovered that I might have some vein problems. I went to see Dr. Crowther and I'm so glad I did. He is very knowledgeable about vein issues and he actually did an ultrasound himself in his office!! That really saved me time as I didn't have to make an appt and go to another location for the ultrasound. The office staff was very nice and Dr. Crowther has a wonderful bedside manner. The overall experience was very pleasant. I don't have any complaints and would highly recommend Dr. Crowther!
Horrible job! My legs look worse than ever and now I don't like wearing shorts or anything that shows my legs!! Looks like he just wanted the money because when I went back to show him what he did to my legs he said to go tanning so it won't look as bad; he could have told me that before I paid him to do anything to my legs! I had only minimal spider veins to begin with! He could have been an honest person and told me that I did not need anything done to my legs and now I regret the day I ever got sclerotherapy! He said I need to pay again for another treatment if I want them to look better, yea right! After what he did I do not trust him at all.
