Excellent, caring and VERY knowledgeable doctor who tries to help patients with lifestyle changes before prescribing a lot of medications to children and adolescents. He works with the student and the parents to help understand the hows and whys the brain functions. It took a long wait to obtain a first appointment and no insurance is accepted bu this doctor is defiantly worth the wait and paying as an out-of-pocket expense. I only wish we had found Dr. Caragan sooner!
