My mother has seen this man for over 10 years... he tried to give her so much medicine i would joke with her when i would take her asking things like "so whats in the book this time? " I would sit in the room with her and hear her time after time telling him i dont take 1/3 of what you write (meaning the amount of pain medication) and he would just ignore her. After my mom having bad reactons to all the junk he would write... like make her so mean we couldnt stand to be around her to it making her want to kill herself so she wouldnt have to deal with life... things really turned bad and she told him she thought one or more of the meds he gave her messed her stomach up so he gives more pills ... she sees her primary doctor who finds out she has something really wrong with her stomach and sends her to a gi specialist. .. mom tells mr crumb this and he writes more meds and gets mad at mom when he finds out she isnt taking all the meds he gives her... few weeks go by gi doc finds spots in her intestines that might be meds tells her to stop taking everything but what she has to (keep the heart meds and very small amounts of pain meds) ok goes back to see crumb tells him what is going on and that she cant take all meds he wants her too he gets mad and walks out .... now here is the kicker .... he isnt even man enough to come back in the room and tell her anything he sends in his nurse to tell my mother "beings you wont take when he tells you to he will no longer put up with you but dont worry we wont leave you high and dry you can get a partial month next month" my mom starts crying and walks out she is not one to say anything wrong or cross .... so today we hit that next month mom has a appointment to see a new doctor but it will be a few weeks so she did what the lacky told her to do and called this morning only to get said nurse to call her back and tell her " you are no longer a patient here dont call back" and hung up.... so yes i am mad writing this been wanting to for years but my mom was worried that he would take it out on her .... i hope you read this doctor crumb and not just have it removed

I love Dr. Crumb , he has helped me like no other doctor would. He's really nice , caring , and really does care about my well being. He's explained to me all of my health problems and the medications he's prescribed to me do work really well. I wouldn't go to another doctor. I've been seeing Dr. Crumb for over two years. I love this doctor he is great to me. The staff is really nice to me also so thats why I rated him the best.
I'm 35 with medical issues that weren't being treated or even looked into by my primary, I also have inflammatory issues and degenerative arthritis of the spine. Since I've started going to Dr Crumb my toes don't turn grey/ purple and my blood pressure has lowered to the point of having to less me to 50mg of atenolol (it was 100mg) and lowering lisinopril. He takes extensive labs and is very honest about your situation. I was going through pain management in SoCal and the did such low mg on meds I was still in much pain. He's a nice guy and a good doc unless you are a drug seeker. He wants proof of why you are in pain so he looks for the cause. Within two weeks of seeing him he ordered an MRI of spine because latest one was over two years ago and I was able to compare the two and see the progression of spinal issues. He also explains WHAT is causing the pain.
Some staff is HORRIBLE but Dr. Crumb is A Pain Dr. That's what he treats you for PAIN yes I don't see what the negative comments are for the patient can always say NO and say I don't wont my body to get addicted to that lets try something else. If you go to him yes, you are going to get PAIN MEDS. My Pro's are the longer you see him the more he will help you in other ways besides just pain meds you have to trust him. My Con's some Staff members are RUDE, you give ALOT of blood like 7 vials, and worst con sucks your insurance DRY. But I will keep seeing him cause he is helping me with meds and other ways like injections. His office would BOOM if he got rid of the older short round blonde at the desk with glasses. what a witch.... I pay my money, pass my test, show up on time, and she still mean. Don't knock Dr. Crumb cause some other pain doctors will treat you ALOT WORSE TRUST ME.. AND SOME will let you see there staff members and you never see the dr. so a thumbs up from me......
My husband WAS a patient. Crumb prescribed over 700$ of medicine per month of which we got for several months in Nov I told crumb we would not be able to get these meds not only bc we just couldn't afford it anymore but he was on several (16) meds & most were very unnecessary so when he went back for his 3 month follow up we were told by the very ignorant "nurse" that he was in "non compliance" for not getting all of the meds.... Not to mention the whole time he was a patient was drug tested EVERY month and NEVER once had anything but what crumb wrote for him he took his meds right.. In short, doctor ok, staff-uncaring, bitter women that will not listen or take the time to get the right answer and should not be in a pain mgmt office... crumb also "aligned" my husbands back & he couldn't move his left arm for three (3) months..... Please go to another doctor!!!!!!
Did nothing but make things worse. Prescribed one pain med after the other and when they stopped working just gave higher dosages and more medications making one become addicted, which no real Dr. Should ever do. Had my friend running out of the prescription before time to renew it meaning addiction on a very strong pain killer he continued to give them to her. Came close to overdosing! Not to mention she herself, with no help from him had to come off the med go through horrible withdrawals. Never tried physical therapy or any alternative therapy, just all narcotics. Beware, because once you go to pain management drs. Sometimes other drs. Will not see you because of the amount of medication you are on and if you go to the ER and you have to disclose that info you are automatically treated as a drug seeker and sometimes it's sad to say but that's what these doctors turn you into. It can ruin your life, your families and terrible how it affects your children! Think twice people
