Biography

Dr. Croy is a board certified orthopedic physician and surgeon. He treats patients with sports and trauma injuries as well as those with general orthopedic problems.

Dr. Croy's personalized, collaborative care helps each patient focus on returning to maximum physical function and the activities they love. "Good medicine begins with a good conversation," says Dr. Croy. "It's my experience that patients make good choices when they know their options. It starts by taking time to explain what's going on. Often, surgery is the only solution, but when conservative, non-surgical treatment is an option, it should be a patient's choice."

Prior to joining Providence Medical Group, Dr. Croy directed his own successful private orthopedic practice in Newberg. hHis work has consistently been known for excellence in care and service. Dr. Croy also served as assistant professor of Orthopedics at Oregon Health & Science University in Portland where he instructed Level 1 Orthopedic Trauma Care. 

Dr. Croy is currently:
- A board-certified orthopedic and sports medicine surgeon

These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

I felt like the M.D. spoke to my spouse rather than speaking to me directly. Also, the medical assistant could have been more helpful with putting the brace on my right wrist.

I really don't like Providence phone system. It is horrible trying to make an appt or call for a question. I would prefer a direct number to the office I'm seeing.
