I love Dr. Craft. He is my original heart doc, and he has seen me through a lot. I would recommend him in an instant. He really takes time to listen, and is a very intelligent, positive, and empathetic guy.
Belleville, IL |
Dr, Craft is an excellent cardiologist. I'm a nurse, and can be very critical of my caregivers. I have complete trust in him and look forward to my twice a year visit with him. He staff are just as dynamic as he is.
Chesterfield, MO |
Dr. Craft is very thorough and makes sure to explain everything. He has great bedside (or chairside) manner!
in Creve Coeur |
Dr. Joseph Craft is unlike any physician I've encountered. He is the most sincere, compassionate, and empathetic doctor I've ever seen. He is 'truly' concerned about his patient's welfare. He has seen me on a moment's notice, on two different occasions, and has assured me that he is there if, for any reason, not feeling well. What a gentleman, and a brilliant mind. You know immediately that this man knows his specialty, and that you are in good hands. I'd give him a ten, if allowed.

Dr. Craft became my cardiologist in December 2012 when I suffered a heart attack and required a 5-way bi-pass (performed by Dr Mark Blucher). I'm a retired police officer as was Dr. Craft's father, which immediately put me at ease. I have been his patient ever since and he has helped me through many worries and questions about my condition. Recently he got me into the Ornish Program which has been a life changer for me.I have complete trust in his judgement and would recommend him to anyone.
Dr. Craft was so good with my Mother. He spent a lot of time With her explaining to her several aspects of her health. He focused on her and explained to her exactly what her next step was. He focuses on the whole patient, although he is a cardiologist he understands that sometimes there is more to a patient than just what appears to be a single problem. I would recommend Dr. Craft and if I am ever in need of a cardiologist Dr. Craft would be my choice.
