A big thank you to Dr. Crowder and staff

December 26, 2018

Back in June I saw Dr. Crowder for an evaluation to help overturn a military disqualification. I was recently informed the appeal was successful and I will be allowed to test. I would like to thank Dr. Crowder and his staff for all their support. This would not have been possible without all your help. Words cannot describe how grateful I am. Thank you again, P.M.

It means more than you may know

July 31, 2017

Dr. Crowder,

Thank you for everything you have done to help me. It means more than you may know that you understood me, my diagnosis, my treatment plan, and everything in between. Three back surgeries in 22 months is a lot, and you were there for it all. I am happy to close this chapter of my life and it would not be successful without you.

Haven't been this pain-free in more than 40 years

Dr. Crowder,

Your surgical skills have made a huge positive difference in my life. My neck and back. I appreciate so much what you have done for me!

He listens, has empathy and is highly skilled.

September 27, 2016

Dr. Crowder is the best doctor. He is extremely competent and takes the time to think about how to help his patients. Most doctors will give a patient 15 minutes and not worry about how to solve the patient’s medical problems. Dr. Crowder will try to see the whole picture and refer a patient to needed medical doctors for collaboration. He thinks about how to solve the medical puzzles that a patient presents. He listens, has empathy and is highly skilled. I trust him completely.

Interventional Pain Management Experience

April 30, 2015

The staff at the front is very kind and addressed me right when I walked into the door. I only waited for 10 minutes before being brought back. The MA for the doctor was very friendly. The doctor was prompt and very informative about my condition. He even overbooked me the same week to get my injection done before I am to go back home. Very efficient staff who provided me with the direct number and e-mail address to contact if I had any questions. I would recommend this office to anyone!

Thank You For Being What All Physicians Should Be

December 08, 2014

Kristina, this e-mail is simply to say I think you are one of the finest MA’s I have ever encountered and hope that everyone you work with appreciates you for your worth. Also, I want to wish you an awesome holiday with your family. You are the greatest and I thank you for all your help these last 2 years.

Please pass this on to Dr. Crowder:

You are a fine surgeon, and even here in Show Low they talk about you and what they have seen you do in a short time at the hospital. I want to thank you for your patience with me and all you saw me through including the broken bones which were not in your field to even treat. I want to tell you that your bedside manner is exception, and because I wanted a miracle from you (the same one you used on my spine) I was a pain in your butt, but you never let it show. LOL You will be so rich and famous someday, the little people will never get in to see you! I can't thank you enough for trying all you did to fix my (BUTT), and I know you wanted to give me up a long time ago. YOU ARE THE BEST. I wish you and your family a blessed and perfect holiday however you spend it. Again, thank you for everything, and thank you for being what all physicians should be.

Dr. Crowder,

My family and I would like to express our gratitude for giving me my life back. That's no overstatement given my condition only two weeks ago. Thank you for making the decision to replace the additional disc and save me from an additional procedure. I couldn't have hoped for better care.

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.

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.

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,

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.
