FLAWLESS SURGERY ON MY BACK

After 34 years of intermittent and often intense pain, Dr. Crowder found the problem and performed a flawless surgery on my back. That was in mid-February. Now, in August I'm living my life every day without pain! I can't say enough about the professionalism that both Sonoran Spine and Dr. Crowder and his staff offer. I live in California and saw many different doctors and surgeons here. None of them were able to make a sensible diagnosis. I heard about Dr. Crowder, so I decided it was worth the travel to Arizona to see him. It was.

AMAZING IMPROVEMENT AND DRAMATIC REDUCTION IN SYMPTOMS

Dear Dr. Chang,

Please accept from a fellow surgeon, my highest demonstration of respect and salutation.

In less than two weeks since her spine surgery, my wife, is having an amazing improvement in her exercise tolerance and a dramatic reduction in her symptoms.

She has conveyed to me that your reassuring personality is the equal to your outstanding training. Please relay our sincere gratitude to your entire staff in the clinic and at St. Joseph Hospital. I look forward to finally having the honor to meet you during her post-operative visits.

Very truly yours,
-P.M.

HOW FORTUNATE I AM TO HAVE SUCH A WONDERFUL CARING DOCTOR

Dr. Datta,

I saw you yesterday (like you would forget that) anyway you had recommended that I start on Naprosyn Tab 500mg (twice daily). You also recommended I start on the Neurontin 300mg (3 times daily); I started medication returning home that morning.

By that afternoon I was able to walk with very little pain. This morning I have had very little pain and I can even bend.

I have been BLESSED AGAIN because of you; how fortunate I am to have such a wonderful caring doctor. I do appreciate you; many many thanks.

-K.D.

THANK YOU, AMY JONES, DPT!

I am a snowbird from Minnesota and appreciate your assistance with an appointment for physical therapy. I did not need to see a surgeon. I knew what was wrong with me; my Dr. from home issued a prescription for physical therapy. I am seeing Amy Jones and so happy with her, she is skilled, helpful, and knowledgeable. I am finally getting better...

I am impressed with your physical therapy unit, at my age I have had lots of physical therapy. Therapists or techs retrieve you at the time of your appointment, there is seldom any waiting. Someone is always available to supervise you and answer questions during your session.

I am glad I went to the program at Venture Out in January because if I had not I would not have realized physical therapy was part of your practice.

EXPERTISE I BENEFITED FROM

Dear Dr. Crandall,

After being batted around since July by a threatened healthcare delivery system; I just had to write and let you know how redemptive my experience was with you and your cordial staff at Sonoran Spine, bar none. The expertise I benefited from while at OASIS was delivered by every single individual along my way. Remarkable work, all.

Thank you,
-L.A.

GIVING ME BACK MY PASSION

GIVING ME BACK MY PASSION

As a single, 40 something woman, I lead an active and busy lifestyle that can do a number on my back. My technology job in product marketing keeps me sitting at my computer all day while my equestrian lifestyle keeps me busy riding my horses, competing and trying to keep up with the maintenance of a 3 acre property. When my lower back pain started preventing me from riding my horses, or training for my newfound passion of barrel racing, I knew I was in trouble.

CARING, CONCERNED, AND COMFORTABLE

I am a winter visitor here in Mesa (3 months). I have had major damage in the past to my spine. I have fusion and rods. I had a huge problem where the pain was so bad that I could not sit, lay or have any comfort. My friend Stan came and got me and brought me to your office. The people that saw me and helped me were absolutely the greatest. Medical Assistant Lori Z. was so nice and caring I could not believe it. I knew she really cared. I was given an X-Ray and then seen by Melissa Gebhardt, PA-C. She was very caring and concerned as well and I felt very comfortable with her. I could not believe that a walk-in who needed emergency help would even get treated, let alone with such caring people.

Please pass this on to HR and I applaud you for having such great people.

PS: Stan is one of your patients.

LIVING A FULL LIFE WITHOUT ANY LIMITATIONS

I was a patient of Dr. Terrence Crowder. I came to him two years ago with severe lower back pain, which I had been plagued with for many years. I tried every possible treatment available, all with no relief or solution to my pain.

I met with Dr. Crowder, and within 5 minutes, he informed me that there was no other option, but surgery. Within weeks, I had the surgery that I needed, and was well on my way to a full recovery. It has now been two years, and I am pain free and back to living a full life without any limitations.

I can't say enough about Dr. Crowder's excellent care, compassion, and professionalism throughout this procedure. And, his staff was just as caring as he.

I would recommend Sonoran Spine to anyone, and have done so. Thanks again,

Sincerely,

-S.B.

TESTAMENT TO MY EXTREMELY SUCCESSFUL BACK SURGERY

Dear Doctors,

Please accept this letter as a testament to my extremely successful back surgery. It has been one year ago this month that you took me from chronic 24/7 pain to a pain-free life that has been more than I’d hoped for.

Thank you, Melissa, for your sincere and heart-felt mission to help me physically and mentally when the last-minute glitch postponed the surgery I’d pinned all my hopes on. Your caring and quick responses to my needs will always be remembered with a smile.

And thank you, Dr. Crandall, for your insightful and decisive medical knowledge. I was so relieved when you told me you could help me and you did it perfectly.

I am now walking 1 ½ miles per day. My back gets a little tired sometimes, but it is such an amazing experience to be pain free and…no prescription medications! Thank you again.

YOU ARE TRULY ONE OF THE "GREAT COMPASSIONATES."

Dear Dr. Datta,

I wanted to take the time and personally thank you for the wonderful care you provided to me prior to and during my hospitalization. This surgery followed a much less successful surgery in 2004. From my first appointment with you on that Wednesday afternoon, I received a good feeling of the kind, caring, compassionate doctor that I thought you were. And everything that you did for me – from having me meet with the NET specialist to talking with me in the hospital made me know just how aware you were of my situation – and by that all the stuff that had previously gone wrong in my medical history and the time you took to ease my mind that you would do your best so it didn't happen again. And the time you spent with my son and family setting their minds at east was just priceless. It has been a long time since I feel I was afforded the care you had provided to me. Again, thank you for all you have done. And if the situation ever arises where I or someone I know needs a spinal surgeon, be assured, you will be the first person I think of. You are one very special doctor in ways doctor's don't seem to place much emphasis on anymore. You are truly one of the "great compassionates."

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR MY BEAUTIFUL, NEW, STRAIGHT SPINE.

Dear Dr. Crandall and Operating Team,

Thank you so much for my beautiful, new, straight spine. Just 10 days after surgery, I was working out in a PT session when I found my new center of gravity and walked for the first time on my own.

I stopped the session and cried bittersweet tears—tears of joy for my new feeling of freedom in my own body and tears of empathy for the woman who had dealt with increasing limitations for years.

Thanks to your work, I now look forward to many years of enjoyable and productive living. By the way, Dr. Crandall, the curve you gave me is beautiful. Let me know if you ever want to be a sculptor and I will take you under my mentorship.

THANK YOU FOR THE EXCELLENT CARE I HAVE RECEIVED

I don't know if this is the proper venue on your website to express my thanks to Dr. Chang and his staff for the excellent care and consideration I have received, and continue to receive, following my lumbar spine fusion on February 5th.

Everyone I came into contact with at Sonoran Spine in Mesa before, during and after my surgery have been wonderful people to work with.

The professionalism and courtesy with which everyone from the front office through to Dr. Chang, have been first class.

I would like to especially thank Pierre, Dr. Chang's Medical Assistant, who has been, and continues to be, extremely responsive to my various post-surgical inquiries and requests.

I will without a doubt recommend Sonoran Spine to any of my friends or family who may need spinal surgery in the future.

Thanks again to all of your staff.

-D.K.
