Dr. Crosby is board-certified in:

• Osteopathic manipulative medicine
• Pain management
Dr. Crosby is recognized by the State of Arizona as a medical doctor trained in homeopathy MD(H). For 15 years, he was an orthopaedic surgeon in private practice.
He relocated from Michigan to Orlando, Florida in 1989 to accept a position as a pain management specialist for the Veterans Administration (VA). This position allowed Dr. Crosby to conduct a significant amount of pain management research.
Dr. Crosby and two other VA physicians achieved an 86% success rate and reduced the use of pain medications by outpatient clinic patients by 45%. Much of their success was due to osteopathic manipulative treatment to correct skeletal misalignments, and to other modalities often referred to as “energy medicine.”
After he returned to private practice, Dr. Crosby’s success at the VA led him to explore energy medicine in more depth—and led to his founding of Crosby Advanced Medical Systems (CAMS).
