I was going to physical therapy for six weeks for my sore spine and arthritis. After several weeks I was given instructions to push weights on the universal gym. This caused more pain as treatments went on, I couldn't lay on myside. I called Dr Cragers office and was advised to come in immediately. After an exam he diagnosed it as bursitis . I was injected and went home. After two days my pain is much better . I can even walk now. Thanks

I got Psoriasis 42 years ago. I have been fighting Psoriatic Arthritis for 30 plus years. Dr. Craiger has helped me get very expensive medicines, and balanced me with another medicine, making my life bearable. He calls to check on me between visits

I just had a visit last week. The Office took great measures to keep you safe. The Waiting room had a WELL side and a SICK side. Social distancing was obvious. I felt comfortable keeping this appointment. Thank you to Dr. Crager and Donna and the Office people. You are the BEST!!! Stay safe and be well.

As my doctor, I have complete confidence in his assessments of my lab reports and questions concerning my illness and care. He explains what's going on and what to look for. He helps me live with these issues by steering me in the best direction. He only prescribes what's necessary and what is working. He's personable, friendly, and honest.
