Testimonials from patients of Dr. Crantz

from Janet in VA February 28, 2018 for Joanne G. Crantz, MD, FACP

Dr. Crantz is the epitome of caring and compassion, of why doctors often say they go into medicine. She has seen me through marriage and divorce and marriage, high blood pressure and high blood sugar, and physical therapy for this, that, and the other thing. And the midnight gall stone attacks. I cannot imagine how different my life would have been without her.

from Barbara in VA February 27, 2018 for Joanne G. Crantz, MD, FACP

Dr. Crantz has been my physician for a lot of years. Without her expertise I doubt I would be alive today. She has seen me through a lot of rough patches in my life. She is to be commended for the wonderful, caring dr, that she is. I want her to know she means the world to me.

from Melanie in DC February 27, 2018 for Joanne G. Crantz, MD, FACP

Dr. Crantz has been my physician for nearly 20 years. She brilliantly manages all the strange and sometimes complex issues that I bring to her, and she always engages with an equal amount of wisdom, compassion, caring, and a wonderful sense of humor and perspective. I literally owe my life to Dr. Crantz, and I feel blessed to be a part of her healing practice. I feel tremendous gratitude to… See more

from Carole March 26, 2017 for Joanne G. Crantz, MD, FACP

I have been a patient of Dr. Crantz for many years. She is a caring, very intelligent and professional Dr.. These are qualities that you rarely, if ever, find today. Recently, my husband has become a patient of hers. It was a great relief to me when she accepted him. we feel very comforted to be part of her group.

from Helen March 22, 2017 for Joanne G. Crantz, MD, FACP

I have been a patient of Dr. Crantz for 24 years. During that time, I always felt I had her undivided attention when I was in her office, whether for my regular physical, or any other medical situation. She is always attentive and listens and answers ALL my questions. I always seem to have my list. All in all, I think Dr. Crantz is a caring person and truly relates to her patients.

We live on a boat and are not based in a single location. We do expeditio-style cruising, traveling to some very remote areas where we need to be self-sufficient in all things, including medical care. It's great to have a doctor who understands our situation and is comfortable with communication via phone and email. It's also good to know that when we are in some remote place, if we… See more

from Dick in VA October 8, 2014 for Joanne G. Crantz, MD, FACP

Dr. Crantz has been my primary care physician since 1990. When she decided to become an MDVIP affiliated physician a few years ago, it was an easy decision for me to stay with her. Whenever I need medical care, counsel, etc., she has been there for me - without fail! During all my appointments with her these past 24 years, she always set aside enough time to listen to me. That is very rare… See more
