from Carole in VA 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 in VA 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. I would… See more

It was Christmas Eve, and my daughter and her family from Martha's Vineyard had come for the holidays. In the middle of dinner, my son in law developed a debilitating migraine. What were we to do. I picked up the phone, called Dr. Crantz's office, and to my astonishment had a call back from Dr. Crantz within minutes with the offer of a solution that worked like a charm! Pretty… See more

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

from Sarah in VA February 27, 2014 for Joanne G. Crantz, MD, FACP

If Dr. Crantz told me I should jump off a roof, I would do so. She is one of the most extraordinary people I have ever met and I have total faith in her! She knows if a patient needs extra time during a visit and she provides it, but I have never been kept waiting for an appointment. I feel that Dr. Crantz is both my doctor and a very good friend!

from Linda in VA February 23, 2014 for Joanne G. Crantz, MD, FACP

Dr. Crantz has been my partner-in-health for over thirty-five years, an exceedingly fortunate situation for me. Even before Dr. Crantz became affiliated with MDVIP, she has always been available when I needed her.
I had shopped for a new primary care physician by conducting telephone interviews. Dr. Crantz was the only doctor who agreed to an interview. I liked her immediately and made… See more

from Tom & Alex in VA February 23, 2014 for Joanne G. Crantz, MD, FACP

My wife and I are in our mid-70's and have been married for over a half a century. Our two sons are surgeons, and we have witnessed the practice of medicine advance with the technological changes but, unfortunately, due to declining reimbursements, personalized patient care has suffered. This is the reason why my wife and I opted to join Dr. Crantz in her practice with MDVIP.

from Diann in VA February 20, 2014 for Joanne G. Crantz, MD, FACP

I've known Dr Crantz for probably over 20 years as a pharma rep and 3 as her patient. I saw first hand how she cared about her patients when I attended resident and grand rounds. When I needed a new doctor, I knew who I wanted - it was her. When she became affiliated with MDVIP, cost was secondary as long as she would remain my doctor.

She has a great way of making you feel at… See more

from Eileen in VA February 14, 2014 for Joanne G. Crantz, MD, FACP

Dear Dr. Crantz,
I would like you to know how much I enjoy my relationship with you. At a time with incredible anxiety in the healthcare forum, I feel relieved to know that you are my doctor and I can call whenever I need your help.
You are a warm, compassionate person and genuinely interested in the lives of your patients.
Although I have been your patient for only a few… See more
