He was very helpful.
We are very pleased with the video visit
Dr Carragee is an extremely experienced doctor, has a terrific sense of humor he uses to put his patients to ease and build a personal rapport. He is very knowledgeable and explains aspects of the injury, course of treatment, status and precautions to take and future expectations in a lucid, concise, unambiguous way. His caring attitude comes through in the attention he pays to details and his proactive treatment. Doesn’t always wait for patient to ask . I would highly recommend Dr Carragee and choose being under his care for any critical condition relating to the spine.
