We Are Weill Cornell Medicine: Dr. Carl Crawford

Dr. Carl Crawford’s passion for medicine has deeply personal roots. Watching his father — an Olympic boxer from Guyana who seemed invincible — battle colon cancer inspired Dr. Crawford to treat his patients with the same thoughtful care he would have given his dad. 

“What you’re doing is taking care of a human life, and you can’t take that lightly,” said Dr. Crawford, an assistant professor of clinical medicine at Weill Cornell Medicine and a gastroenterologist at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center. “I try to say to myself, what kind of physician would I have wanted for my father. And that’s the kind of person that I am today.”
