I just lover Dr. Crooker and his staff. I have been with him for many years, and even changed my insurance company when I discovered he no longer accepted the one I had. I have seen one of his 3 PA/CNP staff members, too ( Richard P. ) and think he's great, also. My only complaint about the office is the long wait times. You can wait 30-45 min past your appt, time in the waiting room, then another 10-15 min in the exam room, and I do feel he needs to do something about better respecting the patient's time. The upside of that, if you could call it that, is that he doesn't rush you once you are seen. I just think maybe he overbooks himself. This problem seems to be worse when your appt. is with Dr. C. than when it's with one of the PAs. If he's accepting new patients, and you're looking for a great internist, Dr. Crooker's your man.

Excellent, excellent care!! I have not had a chance to meet Dr Crooker yet, but I have been seeing Susan one of the Nurse Practitioners. I have been to the office 5 times and have always been seen promptly in and out of the office under an hour. At the same time, Susan is never rushed and she is very thorough. I highly recommend her.

My appointment was at 4pm. I was taken back at 4:45pm. It was 5:25pm before I was seen. Inexcusable. I expect a specialist to respect my time.

Yandel was attentive and caring.

If you really want to know who the top primary care doctors are, ask your medical specialist who he has taking care of his own family!

We recently moved back to Georgia after many years of ministry far across the continent, and I had been seeking a primary care physician for myself and for my family. My pain specialist encouraged me to see Dr. Christopher Crooker, confiding to me that Dr. Crooker, a specialist in internal medicine, is his choice as primary care physician for his whole family, and that he wouldn't go to anyone else. I called, and was able to get an appointment within just a few days.

At my first appointment, I was delighted with Dr. Crooker's office staff, who spoke to me as if they??d known me all their lives --- courteous, patient, warm-hearted, and extremely efficient, It was clear that a lot of thought had gone into creating a usable set of new-patient forms. Many of the usual nonsense questions were missing, and there were lines on which the patient could describe conditions that didn??t appear on the list.

In just a few minutes, I was ushered into an examination room. Because it was a get-acquainted visit, I wasn't required to undress, so I got to meet my new doctor with my clothes on. There's something awfully depersonalizing about meeting a new doctor while wearing only a thin piece of paper, euphemistically called a "cape," when anybody can see that it offers no warmth and conceals nearly nothing.

When I opened the door to a soft knock, I was expecting a repeat of my recent disappointment with indifferent physicians, since seniors with chronic pain issues seem to offer little of compelling clinical interest. I was pleasantly surprised to be greeted by Dr. Christopher Crooker, whose smile conveyed sincere interest. He introduced himself with a gentle handshake, and listened attentively as I told him why I was there. Then he sat quietly and surveyed my chart, making a few notes and inquiring courteously about a point or two, not hurrying me... instead, taking time to familiarize himself with my case. My impression was that he was interested in understanding me as a person, not just as a set of frustrating symptoms. We discovered that we share a common faith, and that he is an officer in his church, the very same denomination my husband had served as a pastor for many years.

Reviewing the long list of medications that I had been taking, he eliminated some of the drugs, but with the intention of weaning me off them slowly, not just yanking me off them. He made a few substitutions, yet showed no disrespect for the doctors who had prescribed them... sometimes he nodded approval of a medication or procedure that appeared on the list.

When I told him that my husband's pension was stretched by the price of some of the meds I'd been taking, he prescribed alternatives. There were a couple of meds he wanted me to "try," so he left the room and came back with a sackful of samples, then gave me detailed instructions for their use.

After we had talked about my illness, and he had made his recommendations, the nurse appeared, bearing a hypodermic needle --- the dreaded annual flu shot! I do not like needles. Usually, nurses have said something like "Aw, this won't hurt a bit," and it does. Nurse Debbie kidded me with "Oh, yes, ma'am, this is gonna hurt a whole bunch," and it didn't! I never felt a thing. While she applied a tiny bandage to the place where she had given the shot, we talked about the feelings of hopelessness and despair associated with chronic illness. I once again heard the soft voice of a Georgia lady assuring me that God keeps His promises to His children, and that it??s my job to claim those promises.

I had entered Dr. Crooker??s office with a heavy heart. I left an hour later with the gift of courage, knowing that I had found in my doctor a highly skilled advocate, and in his nurse a prayer partner. I had come home.

If you can get Dr. Crooker as your doctor. Please keep him, you won't regret it. He is one of those doctors that loves what he does and cares about his patients. It is hard to see him at times due to him having so many patients, but the other doctors are good as well. But at times you "want" to see your own doctor. I have been with him for about 7 yrs, and have moved out of the area, however I still have kept him as my primary care doctor. You don't find too many here in Georgia like him. I have had some problems with his staff however, it was not worth letting him go as my doctor.

There are not enough words in the dictionary to tell you how much I love Dr. Crooker and his staff. His is my regular physician and has been for over 7 years. I feel comfortable talking to him in his staff about all of my physical problems and they really do care. When I had problems with a mail order prescription, they did not hesitate to give me samples of the medication until I was able to get that straightened out. On an emergency situation, I had to bring my autistic son to their office for treatment of the flu, as well as my teenaged high school son who had fallen down a flight of stairs. Both of these were walk in emergency appointments and I did not have any problems with having someone from the office see us. Currently it is very difficult to get an appointment at times with Dr. Crooker, but Dr. Susan (cant remember her last name) and the physicians assistants are truly just as patient and kind as he is in attending to your needs. Therefore, I have no problem recommending Dr. Crookers office to you. They are wonderful folk and I am glad that I found them.

PROS: The Best Doctor In Gwinnett County -- Period
CONS: Sometimes Difficult to get an appointment

I've only seen Dr. Crooker once - his schedule is pretty full - but his assistants are just as good. The staff is top-notch - excellent customer service. Wait times can be a little long for walk-ins, but otherwise, it's a very good practice

PROS: Excellent staff, physican's assistants
CONS: Long wait times for walk-ins

I have been using Dr. Crooker for over 10 years now and he is the best of the best. He has great compassion and really listens to you when you come to see him. This is now his own practice and he has taken it to the top. The staff is one of the finest in town. They keep on top of everything and you are not there for hours waiting to be seen. He also does not rush you right out of the office. They really do care about you and your family here. Even though he is out of the way for me now I have not changed doctors because he is the best that I have found. You cant go wrong coming in to see him.
