My visit sucked. I was the only person in there. The good Doc came across as opinionated and judgmental. Then he started asking unrelated questions and dropping in quiz questions. Like I was supposed to know the answers to his made up quizzes. He did make me feel weird. Needless to say I practically ran out of there. Oh! He also looked 20 years older than that stated. He needed to retire years ago. I really hope this helps someone9.

This man needs to retire. The first question he asked me was if I was mad at God. What a dumb question. He told me that I didn't have a problem with my BP (which is the reason I came in) "but take the medication I prescribe if you want, I don't care." He changed my antidepressant because he didn't want me on the one I was on. That was miserable. Ends up, I do have high BP,-was in the ER with 192/114 thinking I was have a heart attack. He never ordered ANY blood work - I was notified in the ER that I now have hypothyroidism. Dr Creelman bad mouths orthopedic doctors. He is out of touch and has a GOD complex. Time to hang it up doc!

By far, the most judgmental doctor I have ever encountered. Lots of preaching, as clearly his own faith comes before his professionalism. Not willing to really listen to patients... once he’s made up his mind about you, that’s it. I was literally told during an appointment, “you won’t lose weight from exercising”. Um, really? Now let me be clear, the staff at this office is AWESOME. Cindy is fantastic, as is everyone else I have dealt with there.... but never have I been treated this poorly by a Dr. Do yourself a favor and look elsewhere for care.

Sheena – Nov 14, 2019
HORRIBLE!!!! I saw him for chronic back pain and had my medical history with me. He did agree that my L1 thru L5 disks were toast, but that he could not do anything for me. I also saw him for anxiety and was told that 3 beers were equal to 1 anxiety pill. Basically drink 6 beers per day!!! What kind of advice is that??? The Hippocratic oath states that a doctor is to treat the ill to the best of one's ability. Maybe he should review the oath.

I am writing this review for my 80 year old mother. I have to say, reading some of these reviews surprise me. I guess it shouldn't because people who are happy with the outcome or diagnosis rarely hardly leave a review. Perhaps we need to be more honest and tell the whole scenario in full details, not selective ones. As I said, I am writing this for my 80 year old mother who lives in Spokane. She saw Dr. Creelman for her knee that was so swollen and very painful, her MRI showed it to be bone on bone. The compassion and patience he showed my mother was so unbelivable that I am lost for words. I have to be honest also and tell you that I have worked for him for the last 21 years. He was very DETAILED on her comprehensive exam, he asked many questions and wanted details back, if that is a fault, then maybe we're not being fair. If my mother lived here she would be a n advocate for him. She was happy with his care and made the comment, "I know why you stay" He gets a 10 from her!

Julie Lackey – Jul 17, 2019
I have no confidante in "Dr" Creelman. He rushed in, scribbled some notes, told me he couldn't help me and rushed out. He made a comment that if there was some other thing wrong with me to come back. That will never happen. Then I got a call from the billing woman and she accused me of lying to her. When I said "you are accusing me of lying!", she said " no I'm not" and then accused me of lying. It was bizarre. Doc Creelman should retire. I will never set foot in his office again

He deserves a ZERO or MINUS rating! Similar to a previous review, he diagnosed me with sleep apnea and signed me up for a study and treatment despite me telling him I was NOT having the symptoms he described. In addition, he told me, "I have other patients to see and don't have time for you to describe everything that's wrong. Just tell me the worst thing you want me to treat." SERIOUSLY? How did this guy ever get licensed to treat anyone? The absolute WORST DOCTOR possible, IN EVERY WAY!

I would not recommend this office. Your choices are very limited in Burlington, but steer clear. There are better options. I stayed with this office for 20 years and have recently had excellent service at a walk in clinic at Skagit Valley Hospital. It made me realize this doctors office was not a provider worth staying at. They are also slightly rude/condescending, which is not what I am looking for when I am going to the doctor.

Patient in Burlington , WA – Aug 16, 2018
I just moved here & was trying to establish a Dr. The sign offered urgent care also. No such luck-they don’t have enough staff so urgent care needed an appointment-not necessarily even the same day. Then when I decided to make an appointment they tell me that they require $110 cash or card for new patients on top of their insurance coverage. I’m not even sure that is legal when patients have state insurance which they take.

SM3 in Mt Vernon, WA – Jul 15, 2018
Wish I could rate less than a 1. He’s the worst physician I’ve ever seen. If you go in with severe seasonal allergies, he will tell you that you have sleep apnea, even if you explain that you can’t breath while you are AWAKE! He’s trying to make money off of those machines, I swear it. Luckily I saw a specialist and he immediately booked me for surgery to remove my enormous tonsils and adenoids, as well as reduce the size of my sinus tissue so my allergies weren’t so severe. Do not see this jerk

I recently moved to Skagit County, WA by was of Oklahoma City, OK. From the time I arrived at his office to the completion of my visit, the staff were all polite and professional. Dr. Creelman is honestly the BEST doctor that I've had (I've had many). He is brutally honest and tells it like it is. He disagreed w/ my opinion regarding my diagnosis and medication. He told me to take ownership of my health and didn't prescribe a thing! We need more clinicians like him!

Never have I met a more arrogant, know it all, god complex, person than Creelman. He will ask a question, then supply his own response, Ignoring the real answer. He does not listen, Makes no effort to get to know the patient and is downright abusive of his power.

I don't believe he is a real doctor. Someone should check his credentials. He is very rude, not very knowledgeable. Doesn't care about your medical problems. He is getting money for nothing but degrading you..This man should not be in practice.
