“To my patients, I’m a leader, a surgeon, a kind ear, a confidant, sometimes a shoulder to cry on, but always a friend. My patients are my family. I love what I do; I think that is what makes me a very good surgeon. I love spending time with my patients and I love spending time learning about spine and making people better. To me, that is what makes a difference.” – Dr. Crowder
