“Crystal Clinic is nationally renowned for delivering unparalleled patient outcomes, which is one of the reasons we are first in Ohio for orthopaedic care. With the addition of Dr. Picha to our new Ashtabula clinic, more patients will now have convenient access to our specialized care for injuries and conditions affecting the spine,” said Daniel Ferry, Crystal Clinic President and Chief Executive Officer. 

In the Ashtabula clinic, Dr. Picha joins Crystal Clinic orthopaedic surgeons, D. Philip Stickney, M.D. and John Krebs, M.D., and physician assistant, Samantha Meabon. The staff includes several former team members of orthopaedic surgeon William Seeds, M.D., who practiced in Ashtabula for many years. 

“The Ashtabula community is an important part of our strategic growth. We are working directly with several employers as their preferred choice for their employees’ orthopaedic care,” said Ferry. “Through these direct-to-employer relationships, we are able to deliver the highest quality care at lower cost, often with no deductibles or co-pays for employees. More importantly, we’re helping them recover faster, so they can get back to the activities they enjoy most as quickly as possible.”
