Patient Testimonials

Anna D.

I have spent over 30 years struggling with back pain, and the past couple years have been the absolute worst as I had developed sciatica.

Dr. Crowe has given me my life back. In a matter of a couple weeks, the lumbar decompression he performed has permitted me do the things that I enjoy once again. My scarring is minimal too! I cannot wait until the weather breaks so my pups and I can go walking again. Thank you so much Dr. Crowe!

Jimmie D.

I liked Dr. Crowe the first time I met him in February 2015 (recommended by Dr. Robin Crandall). He was extremely knowledgeable but also had a sense of humor. I was experiencing severe pain in my left backside again. I had been diagnosed with Spondylolisthesis Stenosis in 2013. After reviewing MRI results and Physical Therapy, my decompression and lumbar fusion surgery was scheduled for April 1st (no joke).

I’m so thankful for a very successful outcome! One concern I had was being able to go on my annual fishing trip. Dr. Crowe said if my recovery went well, I could definitely go. It was a miracle to me that 3 weeks post-surgery, I was totally off all pain meds (an answer to prayer).

I had to write about how skillful Dr. Crowe is. In fact, everyone at TCO was wonderful from supportive, quick-to-respond Jenny to PA Kara in the hospital, who answered all questions and explained in detail.

Sending a pic from Canada (June 2015). Notice all the walleye? Dr. Crowe is a keeper!

Dr. Crowe’s associate, Dr. Kraft, had replaced both of my knee joints and both surgeries were very successful. I asked Dr. Kraft who he would want to operate on him, and he said Dr. Crowe. Dr. Crowe did a wonderful job on me. I had very little pain with the Lumbar Decompression and Fusion and my left Foot Drop was corrected.

I would without hesitation recommend Dr. Crowe to anyone needing his special skills.

I felt completely confident with everyone involved in my procedure and that includes the intake people. I feel that Dr. Crowe and his staff did everything they could to get this old man up and walking with very little discomfort. I am very happy with the outcome!
