Dr. Carraher was the greatest. He treated my Dad up until his death in 2014. In my opinion is one of the best in Lincoln. I'm also a former patient as well and was very happy with his diagnosis'. I've just recently heard he has retired. Sorry to hear it. Thanks for all your help caring for my family ! He will be be missed.
