Patient Experiences

November 10, 2021
Dr Crum medical assistant Tiffanie is a sweetheart. She has a fantastic personality. Both my wife and I appreciate her and trust her very much with any medical issue we may have. She deserves to be reconsider for her outstanding work and professionalism she has .
November 10, 2021
Both Dr. Crum and PA Walker not only responded to my requests, but suggested additional medications or treatments that I did not know were available.

When I hurt my back and was in so much pain and could not get my orthopedic doctor Dr.Crum called me after hours and gave me advice, looked up meds my orthopedic doctor perscribed when this happened before and helped ease my pain. i am so grateful! He is a new doctor for me and I found him to be knowlegable, caring and professionable.
October 29, 2021
I very much appreiaite the clear explanations Dr. Crum gave me. He also gave me adequate time to go over scan tests with me. I have only seen Dr. Drum 2 times so it is difficult to answer all the questions here. So far he feels to be a fine doctor and I plan to continue with him.
October 29, 2021
I would highly recommend dr. crum
October 29, 2021

Dr. Crum has done an outstanding job coordinating and managing my healthcare, much of which I had been deferring until I turned 65 and obtained medicare insurance coverage. He is easy to reach and very easy to talk to. Never rushed. I (and my spouse) feel extremely fortunate to have Dr. Crum as my PCP. At my age, having a good PCP is extremely important. Dr. Crum is a GREAT PCP.
October 21, 2021
DR. Crum. He is always kind and considerate. He never seems rushed and always takes the time to listen. I feel that he respects me and is truly interested in my wellbeing.
October 20, 2021
Dr. Crum listens attentively and seems to genuinely care about the patients he serves.
October 20, 2021
At the age of 75, I have never had to take any medicine for long-term care ... something I credit to good genes and careful eating habits. But when the Red Cross discovered I had elevated blood pressure during my blood donation, I went to see Dr. Crum. He first prescribed a beta blocker which dropped my blood pressure somewhat. After three weeks, he prescribed an additional calcium blocker. Five days after starting the additional blood pressure medicine, my BP readings this AM were 121/64 (pulse 73) and 124/61 (pulse 70). All said, I am quite happy with his diagnosis and treatment.
October 14, 2021
Dr Crum is a compassionate listener who respects my opinions, while offering helpful advice. I'm very happy to have him as my doctor.
October 14, 2021

October 04, 2021
Dr Crumm gave me adequate time
October 04, 2021
Dr. Crum has been an outstanding physician because he listened to me when I said I was in excruciating pain and ordered an MRI son my knee. It showed 2 meniscus tears and a large cyst. He takes his time to listen and answer questions. I don't ever feel like I'm pushed out of the door so fast I don't have a chance to think of a question. He's extremely competent in what he does.
October 03, 2021
I do not know the names of the staff, but they were all incredibly friendly and welcoming.

Dr. Crum is always willing to listen to me and take everything under consideration. He has always provided the most UpToDate information. He has great communication skills and I am proud to call him my medical provider. Nicole his medical assistant always has a bright smile to greet me with. Nicole has always made sure my questions and concerns were relayed correctly to Dr Crum. She has always followed up with me and made me feel like my care was first priority. They are both a asset to Asante.
September 24, 2021
Just getting to know Dr. Crum transferred from Dr. [ ] give it another year or two.
September 24, 2021
The entire office staff was amazing. They are kind, thoughtful, and helpful. Dr. Crum was also excellent.
September 23, 2021
I have had only one visit so very difficult to answer questions, here. I will say however that I was pleased with first visit. He gave fair amount of time, and he listened careful, made me feel comfortable. i will continue with more visits with Dr. Crum
September 23, 2021
Someone called in response to our message through the Asante "my chart" systerm, asking about my COVID 19 test "positive" result. Possibly Nicole, CCMA, as she is the one who first wrote a response that Dr. Crum wuold review the sitiuation and get back to me. Sorry I didn't note the name of the woman who called on or around [ ]. She was thorough, a good listener, had ready and reassuring answers, very professional and competent, also polite and pleasant .... outstanding.
September 22, 2021
Dr. Crum and I spolke of all topics listed..don't recall speaking with anyone else. The bases were covered.
September 16, 2021
Dr. Crumm was interested in my concerns and made me feel the concern that want from my primary care provider. He asked for tests to address specific questions and thoroughly addressed the results of the tests. I think he has potential to be outstanding.
September 16, 2021
Dr Crum is outstanding as are his medical staff. One of the receptionist was somewhat terse and rude.
September 16, 2021
Dr. Crum is incredibly adept and empathetic as a provider. Best doctor I've ever had.Tiffanie as an MA is professional and extremely efficient. Best MA who had ever cared for me.
September 15, 2021
I feel confident I will get the care I need in a timely manner.
September 09, 2021
Don Walker DNP provided exceptional care for me during an acute office visit. The office did not have injectable antibiotics in the office which I needed right away. He went out of his way to call other Asante clinics to obtain the needed medication. Office staff was asked to go across the street to pick it up and he administered it to me. It was a game changer in the course of my treatment for a serious case of cellulitis in my abdomen. Please let him and his staff know how much we appreciated his caring and excellent medical tx.
September 08, 2021
Dr. Crum's PA took the initiative to arrange for a prescription to be provided for the CPAP machine I've just been diagnosed as needing, and was very knowledgeable about my options.

August 27, 2021
The nurses were above and beyond in kindness and professionalism.
August 27, 2021
I have been exceedingly pleased by my meetings with Dr. Crumm and his staff. I have also been seeing a physician at [ ] because of relatively recent diagnosis of a birth defect. Dr Crumm has read the test results when I meet with him after the tests and he explains them to me clearly and checks that I am clear about their meeting. He is meticulous in checking with me about prescriptions I am taking while working to manage my health. As a 70 year old, I never had a physician who I feel listens so carefully to me. I feel I have a clear voice and that Dr Crumm listens to me. I couldn't be happier with Dr. Crumm as my physician.
August 27, 2021
Finally I found a good doctor that listens & cares for his patients. Wish there were more doctors like Dr. Crum, now I feel safe and confident with my future medical care.
August 26, 2021
I feel very fortunate to have Dr Crum as my physician.

This was my first visit with Dr. Crum. He was excellent and I felt comfortable talking to him even though I had some hard conversation to have. He was caring, empathetic and listen to my needs and helped focused on what we need to do to help me.
August 20, 2021
I am a new pt. and recently had my first doctor's appointment with Dr. Crum. I am an older adult (Medicare) who moved to Ashland less than 2 years ago and came from a [ ] provider experience in Southern California where I never saw the same doctor twice. Usually I was directed to go to the walk-in Urgent care if I needed care. Things were rarely explained to me. When I came to Dr. Crum as a new patient, I had a list of things that needed following up on. Dr. Crum was amazingly helpful. He came into the exam room having already reviewed all of my [ ] records. He not only addressed each item on my list, he explained various aspects about my care at [ ] that were never discussed with me. When I left Dr. Crum's office I was MUCH better informed about my health, and I knew that my care was going to finally be managed by a physician who was interested in me as a patient. I am thrilled to have found such a great PCP here in Ashland.
August 19, 2021
Dr. Crum was very helpful and understanding of the issues I was faced with.
August 18, 2021

August 18, 2021
I have only met with Dr. Crum twice. Both times he was professional, informed and compassionate. I feel confident that if I have a concern he will respond in a timely way. His assistant was friendly and helpful, but I was uncomfortable with not knowing whether she was vaccinated or not.
August 18, 2021
Dr Crum is truly Excellent. I have multiple issues that I'm dealing with..... and he keeps them all organized.He thinks of many alternatives.... and always listens to my input and what's important to me.He is quick with referrals, when necessary, and uses MyChart messaging with me very efficiently and helpfully.I may not be describing them all here, but I can't think of a single trait that I could ask for in a Primary Care physician.He is the best. Thank you.... [NAME]
August 18, 2021
Nicole [ ] has treated me particularly well and is very understanding about my transition and the challenges that come with it.
August 18, 2021

Dr. Crum promptly answered a message I sent on MyChart about a concern that I wanted to discuss at my upcoming appointment. He was kind, compassionate and open to a treatment I wanted to try. He made my concern a priority during the visit, rather than just sticking to going over lab results as scheduled. I felt heard and respected and grateful!
July 14, 2021
Dr. Crum and the staff were always excellent.
July 12, 2021

Dr Crum is our newly established family Dr. He does a thorough job of reviewing and asking questions about our past and current concerns. Our past Dr moved away from the Asante Practice and we were sorry for that but at this early stage in getting to work with Dr. Crum, we are very happy with him!
July 01, 2021
My healthcare management is complex. When Dr. [NAME] retired I was thinking of looking elsewhere, but was convinced to try Dr. Crum. I am so glad I did because I feel I have a PCP that really understands and cares for my health.
June 27, 2021
June 27, 2021
Dr Crum has been my physician since Dr [NAME] retirement, so for 7 months. I've had both a video meeting when I first met him and a recent in-office meeting. Both times he had read my charts and test results and discussed all issues. I have an uncommon birth defect and have recently started to see Dr [NAME] at [ ]. Dr Crum had read all her notes and followed up with me on the plan for care. I was delighted that Dr Crum had read all of Dr [NAME] notes before the visit, knew her comments and we discussed them. I am extremely satisfied with my interactions with Dr Crum: I feel heard and that is great.
June 26, 2021
I was treated with respect, and interest in my well being.
June 26, 2021
I appreciated that they were able to get me in on someone's cancellation, especially since it was a Friday and the appointment availability was only a half hour from when I called.

June 20, 2021
Every time I go in to see my provider everyone there is quite friendly. I am disabled and they take their time with me getting up from the chairs and walking because I do walk quite slow and off-balance. I have been going to this office since I was in my mid 20s, and I've always gotten respect and treated like a friend and not just a patient.
June 20, 2021

June 17, 2021
I called Dr. Crum and left a message concerning a previously talked about health issue..He called back the same day, listened and discussed with me a treatment plan, called in a prescription that day. I couldn't be more pleased as that had not been my experience at any time with my previous primary care doctor at Asante...thus the switch to Dr. Crum. Knowledgeable, patient, not the least bit dismissive and I felt listened to and treated by a genuinely caring and highly capable person.
June 17, 2021

March 04, 2021
Since this was my first appointment, I don't remember anyone's name, but the person who explained how the virtual appointment would go, and the person who checked me in, the person who followed up on my prescription requests, acknowledging they received and processed it. I believe Dr. Crum is the first doctor in years who has addressed any of my issues regarding restless leg and sleeping. I sincerely appreciate his interest.
March 01, 2021
Though I don't remember the name of the nurse who took my vitals, she was very kind and caring. Dr. Crum too; I liked him immediately.
