Conditions & Procedures
Primary Care Sports Medicine,
very caring. I was actually so happy that he personally called me back to talk to me about my problem. Very understanding and I really appreciate it.
it would be nice if the doctor included strengthening exercises as part of the recovery.
excellent bedside manners made this doctor a definite positive experience
Impressed with thoroughness.
Very good listener, gave me both medicine for short term relief and also path for longer term cure (physical therapy).
Insisted I had to have a boot because of fracture. Boot irritated and cause more problems to my wound aside from being extremely painful. Said fracture had to be treated first and if I couldn't wear boot I'd need to be non-weight bearing in a splint. Said I did not need to make a separate appt with foot and ankle specialist - to see him in 2 weeks and see how it goes. I was in more pain when I left office and it continued to get worse. I went 4 days later to specialist. Was told no boot because it was causing infection and wound will not heal in boot and that the fracture is so small it won't hurt me to walk on it. Wound must be treated first. Its been one week since visit to McCraken and I am getting better since my visit to specialist but his treatment really set me back and I am still in more pain than before I saw him.
Dr. McCrackin was kind, explained things patiently and well.
good - wasn't able to use brace received as it was too big & would not be able to use my right hand & arm. I bought a smaller one similar & used when I was able to.
dr Mccracken is amazing I was his last patient after hours and took his time with me and walked me through evey single step that I need to take with lots of options he recomand no pressure at all with anything that I was going through. kind patient loyal and courteous most importantly very caring.
The coverage and treatment I received was outstanding.
