    Dr. Craft is a fine person with excellent communication skills. He clearly presents a diagnosis and the various treatment choices. He is helpful, supportive but not pushy about knowing what is best for you. I would recommend him to others without hesitation or qualification.

    Dr. Craft is excellent. I have been coming to him for years. He has a great rapport with his patients.
    in Flourtown, PA |
    Finally! A surgeon with a bedside manner that would rival the best. Dr. Craft was simply amazing; over a two year period, he took the time to answer all my questions, never rushed me through my appointments. Knee replacement surgery and recovery was explained completely, and I came through both with flying colors (no infections, nice clean scar). His entire staff (love his PA, Jamie) was extremely professional and returned my phone calls within a few hours, making sure all my needs were met

    Dr. Craft gave me a total replacement on both shoulders with a fine outcome and no problems. I was denied by two doctors because of my age even though I had no underlying medical conditions. Dr. Craft is wonderful. I would recommend him to everyone.

    I have already recommended Dr. Craft to at least 2 persons needing a knee replacement. One has already seen him and has been scheduled. The other has been debating replacement for 1 1/2 years(but needs it and has seen 2 Drs.) Dr Craft is personable, knowledgeable and thorough.My procedure 7 weeks ago was a textbook case.

    Dr. Craft is wonderful! I had a skiing accident and tore my ACL. Dr Craft explained all aspects of the choices related to treatment, surgery, post-op, PT, and getting back to normal. He made me feel comfortable and confident in the medical decisions that were made. He applied the protocols to meet my individual needs. He considered my desire to get back to skiing and tennis and assured me that I could return to my active lifestyle . . .perhaps with more care regarding the slope I choose to ski.

    Dr Craft did an amazing job with my total knee replacement. He instilled trust and faith in his ability as a surgeon. I knew I had chosen the right person for this procedure. He has given me my mobility and life back. I highly recommend Dr. Craft to anyone who needs an excellent orthopedic.

    Dr Craft puts you at ease when you first meet him. He keeps eye contact and freely answers your questions and concerns. He visits you after surgery and reviews what took place during the surgery. He arranged for surgery and post release appointments He was recommended to me by over 15 people in my water class and our instructor. This was the swcond knee I had replaced and I feel the personal interaction was superior!
    in Willow Grove, PA |
    Outstanding!! Dr Craft is a gifted Doctor both in his knowledge, experience, and wonderful bedside manner. He has replaced my one shoulder and I will be having my other shoulder replaced in the fall. He has helped me manage pain so well. I have and will recommend him. H The office staff is friendly and very accommodating and efficient. Bravo!,
    in Blue Bell, PA |
    Besides being an excellent, experienced surgeon, he is an attentive, sympathetic listener with a bedside manner that would be hard to match. All in all, he is truly a gem of the first water!
    in Blue Bell, PA |
    I had a good experience and a good outcome, I would highly recommend him for any Orthopedic work.
    in Blue Bell PA |
    I would recommend Dr. Craft without reservation. I recently had a total knee replacement after many years of injections and conservative treatments . At no time did I ever feel pressure to make decisions concerning my needs. His personality in stills confidence and sincerity not often found in a surgeon. You never fell rushed when you are with him you feel like you are the only patient he has very comforting under what can be extremely stressful circumstances.
    in Huntingdon Valley, PA |
    Dr. Craft is an extremely capable and caring orthopedic surgeon. I was seen on time, the office staff was exceptionally kind and Dr. Craft spent time with me explaining the implications of my injury and the options for treatment. I was very, very pleased.
    in Fort Washington, PA |
    I totally recommend Dr. Craft for many reasons. He is an excellent surgeon as he has done a should, and bi-later knee. Has wonderful bed side manor and very caring.
    in North Wales, PA |
    I recently had a right total knee replacement done by Dr. Craft. He was thoughtful about the type of replacement to use due to my history. My x-ray showed a perfect result. My incision healed slowly due to a medical condition. He cautiously left the staples in an extra five days, waiting for improved healing. My pain, both in and outpatient, was taken seriously. With hard work in PT I am doing better than I have in the past five years. I am so grateful for his expertise and caring personality.
