Burnt orange is his color of choice, representing his ties to the University of Texas and a family of Longhorn alums.

Dr. Crim is the gold standard. Had my colon resection done by Dr. Crim and I’m on the road to recovery. You don’t know how good a surgeon is technically, until the hospital nurses can’t praise his surgical skills enough when examining my surgical area. He takes time to answer our questions and went beyond the standard working hours to get us answers and results. I would definitely use him again if needed and recommend him to anyone looking for a great doctor.
