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.
