I have had wonderful service from Dr McCracken's office and have been seeing her since before the office in Newport News (10+ yrs). She is an insightful diagnostician and a pleasant person - I actually look forward to going in to see either her or the current nurse practitioner (3+ years). I do admit that since receiving the Top Doc award from her peers 3 years running, her office seems more busy. But it has helped that she and Dr. Feely now practice in the same office. I have always been able to get in quickly when needed.

Absolutely the BEST!!!! I have known him and he was my favorite go to physician even before he opened his private practice when he worked for an URGENT CARE Walk In facility. I moved and miss his caring and compassion greatly. Thank you Dr. Lowery

Dr. Ginsburgh has been my physician for several years and I continue to be impressed with his warmth, professionalism and expertise. I believe my health care is a primary importance to him and his staff.
Tips & Advices
A child should see his or her pediatrician frequently during the first few years. Once the child reaches age 3, parents should schedule a doctor's visit at least once per year. Before that, however, the American Academy of Pediatrics suggests parents arrange visits according to the following schedule:
  • 2 to 5 days old
  • 1 month old
  • 4 months old
  • 6 months old
  • 9 months old
  • 12 months old
  • 15 months old
  • 24 months old (2 years)
  • 30 months old (2.5 years)
No, parents should call 911, an emergency physician, or a pediatric emergency physician if a child suffers an acute illness or injuries. Doctors in these fields are more qualified than pediatricians to handle emergency situations.
A well-visit is a routine visit with a pediatrician to track a child's development, discuss medical or emotional concerns, and receive immunizations and medical advice.
Yes, pediatricians provide immunizations for infants and children up through 21 years.
No, pediatricians do not have to be board certified.They're only required to have a state license. However, certification indicates a dedication to studying pediatrics beyond the requirements.
