Dr. McCracken was one of many Dr's I interviewed before my surgery and he had the experience and could explain the different options and costs far better than anyone else. Others had already recommended him to me and my experience was excellent.

Always explains diagnosis in terms I can understand. Has met me in office on weekends and holidays, when I had an issue that was very serious. He saved my sight! Trust him over any other doctor.
