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.

Why Does Experience Matter?

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

Dr. McCracken's 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.
