Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Creelman "My goal is to provide the best, and always honest, answer to your questions and problems given in a relationship that will allow you to smile, laugh, cry, and be comforted when you are hurting. We understand that pain is not just physical, but emotional and spiritual, as well. My compassion, caring, explaining, and counseling will continue, especially when critical illnesses arise. I hold to the absolute sanctity of life. Dying is a natural part of life that happens on its own schedule — one that we don't determine.

Consider allowing us to be your conduit of information and care. I would like to help you explore low-cost alternatives to the same care without compromising the quality of care. As your healthcare advocate, I work hard to take the confusion, fear, and mystery out of your healthcare. I'm excited about the chance to treat, comfort, challenge, and encourage you and your family through both sickness and health. Our focus is to specialize in you."

Patient Comments (23)

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...more

I had a very poor experience at this clinic. He was quizzing me about medical issues I knew nothing about. He was even asking me trick questions. I suppose it stroked his ego or something when he could appear 'smart'. I positively will never set foot in his waiting room again.

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...more
