I would never recommend this doctor or Dr.Scully. I'm a 24 years old female and I was discharged from the hospital on beta blocker. I called dr. Cragers office complaining of chest pain,severe headache, hot flashes and feeling like I was going to faint. I started calling on Tuesday. I got an answer back on Friday. They didn't feel like I needed to be seen is what his nurse said. I went to another cardiologist ( w/ high blood pressureand he started me on 2 more Bp meds along with my beta blocker.
