Excellent "bedside" manner! Good listener. Honest/smart/caring.

I guess I've been storing up my emotions for a long time and was weepy and upset. Dr. Crispin was most comforting and reassuring. Helped me with my concerns and how to address my emotions and encouraged me to seek help. As always during my exam she goes above and beyond in explaining the process and keeps you informed during and after. She never forgets to ask you; how are you how are you doing?

I am in my 5th year of follow-up for GYN cancer. *Dr. Crispen's has been my "rock". I am forever grateful for the care she has provided. I recommend her and Vanderbilt often. (I am a retired registered nurse.)
