Dr. Christopher Crowe has the following 1 specialty
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

About 10 years ago, I went through a life altering infection and while Dr. Crowe did take over my care from another doctor, he abandoned me when I didn't get well with the treatment he used. I was a very panicked patient as I was dealing with something many doctors had no experience with and I had a hard time getting a diagnosis. I understand a patient like me makes doctors feel inadequate; however, I was the patient and I was the one who needed a doctor by my side to continue treatment based on my symptoms and not based on test results. Dr. Crowe got wrapped up in treating me as a test result, rather than a human being with ongoing symptoms of disease. I guess his motto was the tests don't lie, but the patient does? Maybe he needs to change his views on that and realize that MOST patients don't lie and some tests are inaccurate and he should listen to his patients. Years after I had seen him, I saw another doctor in a different speciality who called him for some feedback on my case and he basically told this doctor that there was nothing more he could do for me. When someone has a chronic bone infection you keep them on antibiotics, so there was certainly something more that could be done for me. Thank God I have my family doctor who has continued to stick by my side and he treats "the patient", not the test!
I have had the honor of working with Dr. Crowe as well as being his patient. I trust his judgement and appreciate his thoroughness. He takes time to understand and ensure the patient understands as well. He is compassionate, caring, empathetic and highly skilled. His bedside manner is fabulous and he treats the nursing staff with great respect as well. Dr. Crowe is an amazing doctor and his associates are also excellent. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Crowe to anyone. He is, in my opinion, the best infectious disease doctor I have ever met and I have been in health care for over 30 years.
