      My family doctor recommended Dr. McCarren and I am very pleased. Dr. McCarren is very thorough, professional, and sharp. It's reassuring to have such a conscientious, detail oriented neurologist looking after me. Can't say enough about my experience.
      Philadelphia, PA |
      Would never recommend this doctor to anyone. Disrespectful and combative with a minor in his medical care. Dismissed the minor when he/she questioned about the medicine doses---and proceeded to kick the patient out of the practice.
      in Collegeville, PA |
      I was getting frequent headaches and Dr. McCarren was so helpful. He spent an hour with me not only doing a full exam, but most of the time we talked about the reasons why I was getting the headaches and how to manage stress. He even gave me a book on mindfulness and meditation which has really helped. The staff was also incredible. They scheduled an MRI for me at a local facility and obtained a cert # that day. They were very attentive.
