Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. McCracken "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."
