Dr. Pastor was fantastic. I tore a ligament and broke a bone in my thumb back in August. He has a great bedside manner and was very professional. Dr. Pastor repaired my injury and I am back to work. Thank you Dr. Pastor.

Did a great job with my daughter's hand surgery. She severed the tendon in her pinky, which was probably some pretty delicate work with small tendons. 10 weeks since surgery and her hand is looking great and recovering very nicely.

Went in for a wound check on my finger. I found Dr. Pastor to be pleasant and to the point. Made me feel better in that I had done a good job of taking care and listened to the fact I really disliked the full finger splint, and said at this point could go to what was comfortable to me.

Highly recommended. Dr. Pastor and his staff were friendly and professional making my hand surgery very pleasant. Dr. Pastor explained along the way not only what he was doing but why he was doing it. Although I was nervous at first his confidence and obvious great wealth of knowledge put me at ease. Thank you Dr. Pastor. Shout out to Chelsea. Thank you for making me feel comfortable through the whole surgery.

My experience with Dr Pastor has been very positive. He counseled me through my options on a broken wrist and performed the surgery that I ended up opting for. He took time to explain the procedure to me and has been attentive in post op appointments as well. The outcome from the surgery is looking good as well.

Doctor Pastor treated me for a fractured wrist. The surgery went as well as could be expected after which he kept me updated and informed with what I was going through and what to expect going forward. I thought he was very professional and sympathetic to my concerns. I am very thankful that he was my surgeon and for his help throughout my recovery.

Took time to explain everything to me. Staff is exceptional as are assistants. I also like the convience of a Shoreline office. Dr. Craig is thorough, confident, caring and calming. All of which are good for a 69 year old woman with her first broken bone. He explained why he didn’t need to do surgery, and how we would proceed. I was part of the process the whole way. Nice to have a doctor who listens!

I had a fall and fractured my wrist. I don’t like going to the doctor, but needed to address the fracture. I had not been to Eviva before but it was relatively close to my home. I am glad I came here they are well staffed the environment is comforting and friendly. I met with Dr. Craig Pastor. He has a great disposition about him. He recommended that we cast it which I did. I had to maintain for 4 weeks, then graduated to a brace. I have healed well, I would definitely recommend them.

I'm happy to offer my enthusiastic recommendation for Dr. Pastor. I fractured my scaphoid in December of 2017 and the diagnostic options pointed towards surgery. Under normal circumstances I would seek multiple opinions but we were in the midst of a family crisis and I didn't have the time or the bandwidth. Dr. Pastor was professional and respectful, and my wife and I felt confident choosing him as my surgeon. I'm happy to report that I'm two months post-surgery with a good outcome. Thanks Doc!

Dr. Pastor did a wonderful job on my hand. I had cut it with a mandolin & he did a skin graft to close it. He was very gentle when working with my wound.
