Dr. Cretella is a wonderful neurologist. She has helped me with my headaches and helped bring my life back to normal! I'm actually taking less medications and have never felt better.

Wonderful headache specialist. Listen to my symptoms and took time to explain everything. She talked to me about each medication. She is very professional and caring. Her staff is quick to get back. Highly, highly recommend her.
