"Starting at the front door the guard was nice and courteous offering assistance in whatever you need. Then on to the receptionist that's so nice and courteous and getting you checked in. And now on to Dr. Crotwells team, being very professional and preparing you to see the doctor. And finally dr. Crotwell one of the most amazing doctors I have ever encountering because I've never had a leg break before but him knowing my injury told me how he would fix it and everything seems to be working so good. Thank you doctor crotwell."
