Patient | February 8, 2017

Upon knowing that I needed surgery immediately so I can go back to school soon, Dr. Crispens inserted me in the earliest outpatient schedule. She inserted me before her 1st patient for the day. She also made calls to anesthesia to make sure I get surgery the earliest and safest time. THANK YOU!!!

Dr Crispins has been a blessing to me. She is kind and patient with all of my questions. She has such a helpful side. She is almost always the one to pause on the way out of the exam room to be sure I get off the table safely. She has a way of making me know I am important during my appointment and she is not in a hurry. She is a great doctor too.

De Crispens is one of the best doctors I have been referred to in my life so far. Extremely caring and compassionate toward me in a very scary situation, she instilled confidence in me with her ability to handle my situation and never once made me feel like I was just another patient.

Dr. Crispens executed an usually uncomfortable examination with gentleness and treated me with dignity. I know from experience that not all doctors have these necessary skills which are as important to me as the clinical ones. I would recommend her to my own daughter with complete confidence.
