My daughter came home from work with a headache she took advil - the headache did not get better after seeing 2 differents pediatrians and 1 pediatric neurologists, trying several different medications, over a period of 17 days she was no better. An acquaintance recommended Dr. Cargan - we saw him on day 19 of her headache - he prescribed a different medication and she was headache free within a week. He is kind compassionate and determined to fix the problem. He returns all phone calls

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!
