Been going to Dr. Criner for many years now and he is always concerned and happy to discuss my lung issues. We work together to find out new and innovative treatments and he is always up on the latest research and medications. I find him to be kind, compassionate, caring, knowledgeable, and very interested in my case. I would recommend him to anyone seeking a doctor with old world sensibilities who only wants all of his patients to do well.

I think Dr. Criner is better than any physician I have had so far for my problem [...] he has changed my life for the better when other doctors told me there was no hope of ever feeling better, and I am grateful for that.

Pretty good place to go. Dr Criner is a great Doctor and highly rated. [...] Really, whatever you talk about they answer your questions. They take plenty of time with you. It's a bit of a ride(1 hour 30 min.) so the staff of Dr Criner does make it worth the trip. [...]
