There is no publicly available rating for this care provider for one or more of the following reasons:
  1. He or she does not see patients in the outpatient clinic setting.
  2. He or she sees patients, but has not yet received the minimum number of Patient Satisfaction Reviews. To be eligible for display, we require a minimum of 30 surveys. This ensures that the rating is accurate and statistically reliable.
  3. He or she is a community provider, not a Geisinger-employed provider. Community providers tend to see patients in their own private outpatient practices, which we do not survey.

Dr Crowder was wonderful. He made you feel comfortable.

Provider assured me that my issue was an easy fix and understood when I wanted to postpone until after I retire. Did not pressure me to have surgery immediately.

Answers are based off of second appointment with a different Doctor than the first appointment

He made the entire experience uncomfortable for me, ignored any concerns I had about my body, told me what I was doing was "unnatural" and decided what I would be doing with out even asking me if I was okay with it or what my thoughts on it were. He talked over me made jokes about my concerns, and when I asked what an alternative to the birth control I am on would be he laughed loudly and said "a hysterectomy" and never answered my questions or relieved any of my concerns. It was a horrible experience and I left bawling. I am appalled at the ridiculous care I received. 0/10 for care from this doctor.

I felt that both the PA and the doctor took ample amount of time with both my examination adn talking with me regarding my concerns.

This was the first time I had met Dr. Crowder. I felt great about the visit but have nothing to compare it to.

This was my first visit with Dr. Crowder and I was very pleased. He is professional, personable, knowledgeable and puts you at ease. I would and have recommended him.

Dr. Crowder took the extra time to explain things about my present visit along with concerns from my old records from my last gyno.

I have never seen a male GYN before, so I was surprised by how comfortable I was, especially because his nurse was in the room with him during the exam. It did turn out that the unlikely thing I asked about was actually the issue, but it was impossible to predict that during the exam. I only wish we would have talked about what would happen if that did turn out to be the issue no matter how unlikely.

Dr. Crowder never makes me feel rushed. He takes his time and makes sure your questions get answered. I don't feel like I have to immediately have a question in order to keep him in the room. Very personable.

This was the first time I saw Dr. Crowder. He was very good and I was very comfortable with him.
June 22, 2015
Dr. Crowder explain everything in a very common sense down to earth way and I feel he is taking a personal interest in me and my care. I never feel rushed or that any of my questions are treated lightly.
