I have been seeing Dr McCarren for many years for migraine headaches. He is very intelligent, professional and caring. He takes his time and delves into causes and treatments for the medical issue. I have had success with my treatments and have had considerable migraine days a month, cutting my yearly total just about in half. His office manager Joanne is very versed in insurances aside from her always pleasant and helpful nature.

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.
