“Dr. Crabtree removed my mother’s lung cancer 9 months ago. Since then it came back, affecting her right lung and it used to block her airways. He managed to remove the tumor and open her airways again. I am thankful that we live close enough to St. Louis and that our local hospital was able to transfer her there. I will be forever grateful to Dr. Crabtree. ”
