I would switch vets!!!
You are not supposed to punish him for crying. Good bahavior - reward, bad behavior - ignore!

It takes time and tons of patience to get them to relax in the crate. You should start by getting him in the crate while it's open. Then you an reward him being there quietly. Feed him there, put his toys there, he will learn to associate it with being his place. Then you can start closing the door for a few seconds and reward good bahavior, gradually increasing the time.
