    *Dr. Crudo is very nice and talks so Alex understands. Talks directly to him.

    My son was recommended to the Endo Dept by another Dr. to rule out a glucose problem. This Dr. never gave me a chance to talk about my sons problems. Basically dismissed us. My son walked out and said "he doesn't believe me".

    Did not relate to a teenaged girl well ; she was upset given the fact that she was dealing with a new diagnosis, and he diagnosed it like she was over-reacting. He was not able to discuss on her level ; we will not return to see him.

    Dr Crudo has been my daughter's doctor since she was diagonsed with Type 1 diabetes in 2012. He has been very helpful and kind every time we have seen him. We are very pleased with the care we receive from him and his office staff.
