Just called the office to schedule an appointment and definitely not going to this office. Here is what i what told by a person who picked up the phone: "Dr. Cargan is out of network provider he does not take any insurance. You have to pay cash or check. The fee is $900 per hour each follow up visit is $450" On my question what would be my insurance reimbursement, the person who picked up the phone answered "I don't know. You have to call yourself find out yourself." Really?! So unprofessional.

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!

Dr. Cargan is thorough and explains everything to us as well as the child (at his level). In the last 12 years, we have never been rushed and he has always answered all our questions, even over the phone.
