Horrible doc. Negligent and careless. Misdiagnoses

I injured my leg while playing on sand at the beach. My foot sank into the sand and the part of leg above the knee twisted. It's a very common way to tear your ligament. I explained all this to Dr.Crawford. He ordered both x-ray and MRI. Despite that he misdiagnosed and told me I only had a bone injury. He gave me an expensive brace and gave me a false assurance that my knee would heal pretty soon.When I went for a follow-up a month later, my knee had become very stiff. His assistant studied my case, my MRI, asked me relevant questions on how I injured my leg and found out I had an ACL tear! I was shocked. The diagnosis went from "would heal soon" to "would require a surgery". I wasted a month in pain. I definitely did not want to get operated when the doc showed such negligence. What's worse is my surgeon said I had to spend another month trying to get the knee more flexible before the operation. Else my post-rehab would be much more tough. A traumatic experience indeed!!!!

Awesome Doc!

am of those who only write reviews as a result of incredibly good or incredibly bad experiences. This review is the former as I could not be more pleased with the quality of care Dr. Crawford provided to me. I am admittedly a bad patient and prefer as little medical intervention as possible. When I broke my wrist, I was told by another orthopedist my only option was surgery. Troubled by this prognosis, I turned to Dr. Crawford for a second opinion; he was recommended to me by a friend in the sports industry. Dr. Crawford thoughtfully reviewed my x-rays and gave me treatment options in line with my desire for a nonsurgical path. While Dr. Crawford explained there was an easier and perhaps more effective means of treating my break through surgery, he was considerate and respectful of my wishes. He provided a high level of care and gave me the outcome I desired. His knowledge and bedside manner are equally impeccable. I would recommend Dr. Crawford without hesitation to anyone in need of an orthopedic specialist for any reason.

Great doctor shody business office

I have no problem with the skill set, bedside manner or follow up care of this physician but be very sure you check all your billing statements. The staff did not properly ascertain my insurance coverage and I was charged a hefty co-pay prior to surgery. I have now spent more than a month trying to get it all back since the coverage from insurance was 100%. Today I got the insurance company involved since numerous calls from me have been ineffective and we got several different stories from the billing office over the course of a fifteen minute call. I have had multiple surgeries performed by different physicians and this is the only time that anyone has put the blame on me for a billing error. If I was talking about a few dollars I wouldn't put up a fuss but this is for $995.
