Dr. Crager is a collaborative physician. He does not talk down to me or tell me what to do. We discuss my disease (necrotizing myositis) and mutually agree to my treatment. I can ask for nothing better. He has been my doc for 15 years and I have appreciated him every time I've seen him. Ditto the comments also, on his nurse Donna. She really cares about us patients too!

It was a routine visit to go over lab results and check status of RA. As always Dr. Crager showed true compassion and helpfulness. Having Dr. Crager helps lessen the stress this hideous disease creates on oneself. Also, Donna is incredible as a nurse and person.

Dr. Crager does a very thorough exam even if I'm there for a routine follow-up visit. He certainly understands my circumstances and is quick to respond when I have questions. If you have arthritis, he is your doctor. Donna is superb.
