Dr. Gary L Crump has the following 2 specialties
A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult. Rheumatologists use medications, such as analgesics, NSAIDs, steroids, DMARDs, infliximab, and adalimumab, as well as occupational therapy, in order to decrease pain and improve a patient's quality of life.
- 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.

Upon listening to the review of the book, A NATION IN PAIN, it made me realize what a great group of doctors I have who believed me as I attempted to describe the kind of pain I endure. As a female, my doctor never took it light when I told him I was in pain. He had suggestions and solutions for me that did not involve addictive pain killers as my previous doctor had done because she said I did not have to be in pain. I really appreciated her even though I could not deal well with the meds prescribed. I have been with my doctor for over 25 years and he would work with me in finding a solution, sometimes it would take a while, but I seldom if at all, got discouraged because of his knowledge, patience, experience and prompt response. There are steps to follow in getting in touch with him, but once I adjusted to the procedure, it has given me new confidence in dealing with my chronic pain. It would be so nice for others with this disease to match up with a doctor that understands as mine does.
I really appreciate the prompt service given when I could not take my infusion treatment. The two staff persons working with me once Dr, Crump gave them instructions were attentive, concerned, prompt and called several times to make sure communication was clear and stress free for me. Dr. Crump is personable, knowledgeable about the most current treatments and information. I have been a patient for years and my only complaint is the turnover in the infusion lab and the many msg on their recorder to get to the right person. Erica is so prompt in getting back and very instrumental in getting your msg to the doc. I shall never forget the crisis I was going through at home and my husband called Dr. Crump and he responded so promptly. Thanks for taking care of my injectables, it has been such a blessing.
Dr Crump has been seeing me for 3 years now since I was diagnosed with SCL-70. He ran the tests 3 times before giving me that diagnosis. He's always been attentive in the visits, calming fears, listening to me and my concerns and makes sure that my other dr's are all on the same page. He was also the one to accurately diagnose that my gallbladder needed to be removed even though I spent 4 years of dr's telling me nothing was wrong and I needed to change my diet. That didn't suite well with Dr Crump and he personally called a GI dr and when they finally removed my gallbladder the stones were so dense that they wouldn't have shown on any tests- hence why the misdiagnosis for 4 years. Dr Crump actually cares about his patients- he follows up, he takes accurate notes during the exam and he's a great voice for his patients. I highly recommend him.
