Edward Crane, MD - 2/28/24

Dr. Crane is driven by the desire to help people is why he decided to study medicine. He chose oncology as a specialty because he enjoys caring for the whole person and forming long-term relationships with his patients. He also found that cancer treatments are rapidly changing, with the need for constant updates and research, a challenge that he likes.

Dr. Crane and his staff strive to take care of patients as though they are family. He educates patients and their family about expectations, milestones and goals. He believes it is important to be a friend to patients, allowing them to share their problems or special moments. He encourages realistic optimism, always expecting good outcomes for his patients while being truthful about their situation.

In practice for over fifteen years, Dr. Crane also served as medical director and chief of staff for several local hospitals. He has received numerous awards, including the Unsung Hero award in 2015 from Cancer Family Care and the Man of the Year award in 2014 from the Tri-State Southern Ohio chapter of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
