Patient Comments (7)

Dr Craw took extra time out of his busy schedule to make sure that I received immediate attention for carpal tunnel issues. I am a Chiropractor and really need my hands; so the endoscopic procedure allowed me to get back to work quickly and with very little discomfort. Dr Craw is A#1 in my book!

Dr. Craw performed my shoulder joint replacement surgery in January of 2016. I found him to be thorough, personable and the results of the surgery speak volumes about his skill and competence as an orthopedic surgeon. He was always willing to answer questions and offer encouragement and empathy...more

I really liked Dr. Craw. He performed my Carpal Tunnel surgery, and I am pleased with the results. It is hard to see where the incision was, because of the procedure he used. I have already recommended him to several people.

I had a great experience with OSC! Although breaking my wrist was not the best experience, Dr. Craw and the staff at OSC really helped me through the healing process. Dr. Craw was professional, and very easy to talk with. He gave me great information on my injury and the road to recovery!
