What People Say About Dr. David Cravens, MD
Reply
This was the rudest Dr. I have ever experienced. He would hardly pay any attention to me when I was telling him about my ailment, and when he did he became condescending. I needed to post a review about him because I don't want anyone to have to deal with this man!
