Learn about Dr. McCracken

Care Philosophy

As a family physician, I care for all types of people and illness, ages 4 to 102. I treat every patient the way I would want my family treated. I believe in evidence based medicine, altering my practices as science and medical standards dictate. I make healthcare affordable by prescribing generic medications whenever possible and by avoiding unnecessary treatments and testing. I explain why treatment or testing is necessary, as patients should understand and actively participate in their care.

As others have stated, rushes through appointments and truly has a poor bedside manner. Didn't make me feel cared about, just another person to quickly pass over. There's much better physicians out there...
in Boone, NC |
My consultation lasted less than 10 minutes. Brought up issues with ADHD and anxiety, followed by typical prescriptions of Zoloft and Prozac. No follow up appointments were arranged. Three years down the road while theses ailments untreated TRIED following up care with local psychologist and psychiatrist. Has taken over three months to get into contact with one single psychologist or any healthcare professional that will not assess or consult with me. Healthcare or money? Change practices

Worst experience ever. Dr told me I'd never come off all scripts. Three years later and over a 100 lbs lighter I undid what they did. It can be done!! Don't take their pills!! I also seen them treat another paitient in a horrible manner as well.

Dr. McCracken is pleasant,down to earth, attentive,thorough,and answers all your questions. He uses his tablet to expound on any topic needing further exploration, particularly medications,availability. He is honest and straightforward with his responses and recommendations. Dr. McCracken is efficient but spends time with his patients and does not hurry them out the door.
