What People Say About Dr. Kevin McCracken, MD

Dr. McCracken is not only professional but real in his mannerisms and words, treating the patient as a fellow human and giving one hope with a clear cut and easy to understand explanation of a plan to wellness, no matter how small the injury is. Mine were minor herniated discs, so I can only imagine how helpful he would be to a patient who has a major injury with his field of expertise. You will not regret a moment spent with Dr. McCracken and his helpful and compassionate staff.

After my MRI, I was scared. I had an acute herniation of the C5/C6 disc. This was my first serious health issue and my GP had given me a list of specialists. Dr. McCracken's practice came up on that list and is well reviewed, and relatively local, so I called. We had an appointment set up and Dr McCracken decided to change his schedule to accommodate me - he moved the appointment up, then spent two hours with me, explaining the MRI and x-ray and my options. Top notch experience.

When I went to Dr. McCracken I was in extreme pain and could not walk or stand straight. His exceptional care, thorough examination and surgical skills healed me.
