What People Say About Dr. Charles Craythorne, MD

I like Dr. Craythorne. He seems to really care about his patients. The office staff is very accommodating. However, I find it very frustrating to have to wait sometimes in the waiting room as long as an hour to two hours for a scheduled appointment. Our time is precious, too!

Even if you have an appt. you'll be pushed to the back of the line if a pro athlete walks in. I waited 1 1/2 hours without seeing the doctor because I left in frustration. Extremely unprofessional practice of medicine.
