Dr.Crane has performed two cataract surgeries on me this year. After 65 years of glasses or contacts, I now need neither to see perfectly. My vision and life are much brighter. He is very professional , but exudes warmth and compassion at the same time. I feel he is an excellent surgeon and a true humanitarian. Betsy Swan
Dr. Crane did a wonderful job repairing my droopy eye lid. Surgery was very successful. My eye was not black and blue after surgery. There is a very tiny incision in my eyelid that you can hardly see. Dr. Crane made my eye look terrific. I am so happy I had the surgery. I would recommend Dr. Crane and his staff.
I was referred to Dr Crane after being diagnosed with cataracts and glaucoma. I am 73 years old and have worn glasses since childhood. Upon examination Dr Crane assured me my situation could be improved. I was very nervous with the thought of eye surgery. The Dr. and his staff made every effort to reassure me. After surgery I was pleased beyond all my expectations, I no longer need heavy prescription glasses and only require normal readers.
