Dr. Crispens is an incredibly busy and skilled practitioner and I was visiting for an uncomplicated post-surgery check-up. She could have sent me on my way in minutes but instead, and as always, she took the time to answer all my questions with kindness and courtesy and without a hint of impatience. She is an incredible surgeon and consummate professional. I - and Vanderbilt - are lucky to have her.

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?
