Dr. Crotteau is an amazing provider. Never rushes through. Takes every concern seriously.

At 4 p.m. the day prior to the visit I received a call regarding my child's insurance needing work prior to the visit. This caused rapid calls as I was @ work and wanted it completed prior to office close @ 5 p.m. This did not provide enough time.

Dr. Crotteau continues to be a patient and compassionate provider to my family. He is an active listener and is encouraging and reassuring. We continue coming to him despite changing insurances to a PPO which allows us to go to any adult or pediatric provider. Even when we come in for the walk-in clinic and he is not the provider, if he is there and knows it is one of my family members he checks in on us.

Reviewed on February 5, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr. Crotteau was recommended to us by the nurses at the hospital and over the last 9 years we have been reminded time and time again as to why. He is not only an astute physician, but his is a kind and respectful person who is able to get on the level with both adults and children.
