OKLAHOMA CITY – Mercy Hyperbarics and Wound Care in Oklahoma City and El Reno welcomes Shelley Cragg, a physician assistant specializing in wound care.
Cragg grew up in Carnegie, Oklahoma, and always had a passion for science and building relationships — the perfect combination for a career in health care.
“I believe a health care provider should be honest, caring and able to connect with patients on a personal level,” said Cragg. “As a provider for more than 14 years, I bring a willingness to listen to patients and pay close attention to their individual needs every day when I come to work.”
Cragg received her Bachelor of Science degree in microbiology from Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, and her Master of Public Health physician assistant degree from the University of Oklahoma, Health Sciences Center in Oklahoma City. She has previously worked in the family practice, emergency room and urgent care settings, including seven years in the emergency room at Mercy Hospital El Reno.
Cragg works primarily at the Mercy Hyperbarics and Wound Care clinic, located at 4140 West Memorial Road, Suite 107, in Oklahoma City, but also offers wound care services at Mercy Hospital El Reno one day a week.
Cragg is married with two young sons and enjoys reading, camping, skiing, and watching Thunder basketball and college sports games. She is also a board member of the Piedmont Friends of the Library.
