I have been a patient of Dr Crackower for over 30 years. He is very knowledgeable. He correctly diagnosed me when others didn’t. He listens and answers my questions and concerns. I recommend him to everyone asking for a doctor.
Very understanding man. The therapist was awesome. Staff was very helpful and friendly.

Dr. Crackower is more concerned about making money than anything else. Also he provided me incorrect information. Dr. Crackower has a Therapist on site and I was diagnosed with ADHD. The medicine I am prescribed has made a great improvement in me, but from what he told me was completely wrong. He first said that you have to take it twice a day and never miss a dose because it takes a while to get into your system which is completely false.
