I was able to get a next day appointment when I called! I was very pleased with Dr Crichlow and his staff. They listened to my concerns and provided immediate treatment for bursitis in my hip. Dr. Crichlow also was willing to look at an X-ray I brought and advise me for foot and ankle treatment by another doctor. He is very kind!
