About Kate Crump

My approach to care: My patients can tell that they have come to the right place. My years of experience and communication style mean that I am able to diagnose their problems and educate them regarding their prognosis and the necessary treatment required.


I strive to help my patients set SMART goals to a return to independence and function.


I enjoy gardening, bike riding and being a part-time taxi driver for my young family!
