“We consider ourselves absolutely lucky to have had Dr. Crespi treat our son. With our son displaying some rare symptoms, we met several well respected doctors, all of whom came well short in truly understanding and diagnosing our son, despite their best efforts. From our very first conversation with Dr. Crespi however, he showed a passion to understand and carefully consider his next steps so as to guide us properly. He suggested we do some additional tests because he suspected a rare disorder that if left untreated, could have serious consequences. He wasted no time in getting these tests done, and throughout the process kept us fully informed, calm and relaxed about what the next steps would be if in fact his hypothesis was correct. As it turned out, he was absolutely right in identifying a rare disorder that affects 1 in 100,000 people. He walked us through how it was fully manageable with various options to treat it so that our son would be able to get back to a healthy normal life. We put all of our trust in Dr. Crespi and in turn, he was with every step of the way until our son had received the appropriate treatment from the appropriate specialist that he found and who is now well on his way to a full recovery. Dr. Crespi did not care about day or night, weekday or weekend, as he knew that we were very stressed, and that our son was in discomfort. He knew that every hour that passed was one of discomfort for our son and so he fast tracked everything he could to get us the help and support we needed. When it was all done and our son was treated, he continued to inquire about our son and still does to this day. Lucky is the family that gets such a thoughtful, highly experienced, and result oriented doctor like Dr. Crespi working with them. We will be forever grateful for his support. “
