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."

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.

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.

My recommendation is 'Go some place else'. The office staff is rude and condescending not to mention really defensive. I had an awful experience at Creelman Family Medicine.

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.
