First visit with Dr Crawford and I was very pleased! I was in the office for a little over 2 hours, and he did an amazing job. Minumin about of pain and discomfort. Dr Crawford is very professional as well as patient friendly. He also has an amazing support staff that works very well with him.

I am new to the area, and Dr. Crawford was highly recommended to me. I wasn't disappointed. He and his staff were very thorough and friendly. In addition, the office is managed very efficiently.

Dr. Crawford is a great surgeon. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing help with skin issues. The nurses and staff are always kind and helpful.

To be honest, my first experience with Forefront wasn't as pleasant as I would have liked. Google maps had directed me to an old location and when I called the office for assistance, the phone communication wasn't organized. That being said, I didn't have the friendliest welcoming from the front desk staff. I have worked reception for many years so I understood any frustration that may have accumulated when trying to keep everything and everyone happy and on schedule. I almost didn't go back, but I decided to give it another try at my next appointment with a smile on my face and continue to greet the office with my normal self. I am SO HAPPY that I did! The staff here is absolutely incredible. The doctors I have worked with are amazing at what they do, everyone is helpful and kind and thorough with awnsering to questions, concerns, or any information. I have had nothing less than above and beyond customer service since after that first appointment. They make sure you are comfortable and well taken care of before, during, and after surgery. This office really knows how to care for and love their patients! The only constructive "criticism" worth mentioning is the communication via phone. When you call to speak to someone it's typically through the headquarters. Who then pass you around to different lines which can take up some time but still..... highly recommended for the Columbus office in Indiana! Thank you staff!

We all know that going through something like this is not a pleasure at all. I live in Indianapolis and from the very first time I walked through FOREFRONT DERMATOLOGY doors in Greenwood. It started with my biopsy to where it ended with the removal of the cancer in the office of DR. CRAWFORD. Whom I want to thank you so much for helping me and his nurses and staff are the greatest.They made me very comfortable.I will always remember all of you at FOREFRONT DERMATOLOGY!!! You all are the GREATEST Sincerely, Colleen Cole

It was a long wait to get an appointment with Dr. Crawford, but I wanted to see an actual Dermatologist rather than a nurse practitioner or physician's assistant, so I was willing to wait for the appointment. I didn't have to wait long at all in the waiting room, and Dr. Crawford addressed all my issues.
