    It's my opinion that he is the best rheumatologist, very knowledgeable, caring, and interested in your health. I have lived in four different states and since I have suffered with RA for most of my life, have consulted with many physicians who specialize in RA. I am extremely pleased I found such a knowledgeable physician. He listens to your concerns attentively, not rushing to go to another patient.
    We strive to provide the highest quality in patient care. Thank you so much for sharing this story with us!

    Dr. Crager is the best. I would recommend him and his nurse Donna to everyone. I have been going to him for a long time and he has helped me more than I could say. Great doctor
    Thank you for connecting with us about this experience with our staff. We will be sure to pass this appreciation along.

    Dr. Crager is an excellent doctor who I highly recommend.

    There was a time when I just did whatever a doctor told me to do. But when diagnosed with a rare disease, I had to re-examine that paradigm. Dr. Crager is an excellent collaborator. We work together to ensure that my treatment is the best possible for my situation and that I completely agree with and understand his instructions. He is unbelievably prompt at responding to either a phone message or my use of their practice's patient portal (e-mail). His nurse Donna is kind, efficient and pleasant.

    Kenneth Crager is very informed about the latest drugs therapy.

    I was referred to this physician due his excellent reputation. Unfortunately, I was shuffled around from his office staff back to my referring physician three times. A referral was faxed twice but Dr Crager's office claimed that they were never received. Finally, in desperation, I called my referring physician's office (excellent by the way) & requested that they contact the doctor's office. No luck either! Maybe this office doesn't need new patients. Very disappointed.

    Dr. Crager was very attentive and truly listened to my concerns. Not many Drs do that anymore.
