The lab at Asante Hospital in Ashland was outstanding. Dr. Crum is not very proactive but is quite nice and friendly. I expected a more robust response, more preventative health in terms of lifestyle and diet information [diagnosis]. There was none of that.
March 24, 2022
I was really happy with both dr Honsinger and dr Sager with their promptness in ordering up the appropriate tests that I needed. Thanks!

March 10, 2022
I saw Dr. Crum for an urgent need while my regular provider is on maternity leave. I was able to get in in a timely manner and was impressed with the office staff, nurse, and Dr. Crum. They provided me with answers about my issue and followed up to schedule tests and referrals. They even followed up on a referral to another office that my regular provider ordered and were able to expedite that unrelated office visit. As someone who does not always feel comfortable with male doctors, I can say that I would feel comfortable with Dr. Crum as my primary physician and would recommend his practice to anyone.

I think Dr. Crum is outstanding. I also got a follow-up call from Dr. Digart asking if I had had trouble reaching him and apologizing if that were the case - I had had trouble - no return call after I left a message regarding shortness of breath. That seemed to be a problem with the messages.....

December 14, 2021
Around [ ], I was trying a new [diagnosis], prescribed by Dr. Crum, that was particularly aggressive (as described by the pharmacist). Within the first hour, I felt as if I might pass out, my BP dropped so low. It also made me extremely tired. Tracy and April, Dr. Crum's P.A.s both helped me through this (I was actually on the phone with Tracy while lying on the floor with super low BP) by speaking with Dr. Crum and getting right back to me with instructions and recommendations. They were both very helpful and reassuring during a panicky hour or two. Dr, Crum is always very patient, listens and addresses all concerns. I'm very happy with my care in his office.
December 10, 2021
Dr Crum was outstanding in responding to my concerns and why I was in to see him. He made sure I would get a followup appointment.
December 07, 2021
I can't remember the name of the person with whom I spoke to arrange my last appointment but he was very helpful.I really like talking to Dr. Crum because, in addition to listening to what I say, he asks good questions. And he has given me some excellent advice as well as explaining options. I hope he plans to stay in Ashland.

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.

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 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 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.

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.

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
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
Kristen at the front desk was such a sweet person with great communication skills. Nicole , Dr. Crum assistant was very informative and caring. Dr. Crum took his time with me and listened to my concerns and seemed very genuine .

This was my first in person visit and we were happy to know dr. Crum is interested and takes time to cover all my complex problems.
August 04, 2021
It's very difficult to single out one person when everyone of the nurses etc. are so cooperative and so in tune to what you need. I am very impressed with the office and so appreciate them being concerned about my health.
