Dr. Cravens listened carefully to my problems and was very personable to speak with. I had a 'down-to-earth' discussion with him and was impressed by his common sense along with his medical knowledge. He is now in my "favorites" list of doctors that I trust. Thanks again for seeing me in a timely fashion.

Have been a patient of Dr. Cravens for over 3 years. He's very straight forward and professional in his treatment. I see him in another 5 weeks. Then I'll give him 5 stars, hopefully.

Although I was unconscious during our most significant encounter, I have can attest to what a wise, skilled, and capable surgeon Dr. Cravens is. His technical mastery, good program for pain management, and thoroughness resulted in my getting through the procedure with very little discomfort. He exceeded the goals of the surgery, and I recovered so quickly that I was able to return to daily activities much faster than I expected. Our encounters while I was awake were also impressive. He was kind, patient, a good communicator, and backed by an entire office of nurses and support staff who couldn't have been more accommodating and responsive.

1 year ago, I had been with a different medical facility here in KC. and was literally belittled by the doctor. I drove myself to Advent Health and Dr. Craven's listened to me and helped me significantly. Through the process of this past year he and the team at his offices have been amazing. Dr. Craven's is the recommended doctor of choice. Thank you, GG

Right from the first visit I liked and he gave me craves Dr Cravens. I being a cancer survivor for 7 Yrs wasn’t sure who to have do the surgery and I called my old radiologist and asked him for a recommendation, he gave me Cravens name. What I really like is Dr Cravens really just being himself, He’s doesn’t throw any bs around, he treats me like a person. It’s nice to sit and talk about cancer in a real way, so many want to treat you like you’re really just a Clueless lay person who doesn’t have a clue. I think Dr Cravens has good insight into who his patient is and that is an art to be able to read Your patients. My surgery was hell and the recovery was long and painful. His office staff was always available if you had a question, so yes I highly recommend Dr Cravens if to have to have a surgery. He definitely knows what geez doing

I saw Dr. Craven’s over a period of about 2 years, when my Crohns Disease was at its worst. At the age of 21 I was on deaths door, and Dr. Cravens is the one who firmly brought me back. He wanted to avoid major surgery at first, but when it appeared that I would need a ileostomy and bowel resection he took great care of me. Dr. Craves was very thorough and attentive, he listened to me and followed up with me and treated me like someone with an opinion. I have only good things to say about him. An incredible bedside manner and a great skill for surgery.

Dr. Cravens performed a complex robotic colectomy as part of the remediation of my colon cancer - and I simply cannot recommend him highly enough. He was very easy to work with, kept me informed, and frankly projects both competence and confidence, which was extremely welcome when you are dealing with the anxiety of this kind of diagnosis. Dr. Cravens and Colorectal Surgical Associates are best in class, in my opinion, and I will always be grateful that I was referred to them for the help that I needed. My recovery was 100%, for which I am also very grateful - and I believe that is entirely due to the quality of the care and work performed by Dr. Cravens.
