He really helped me after my other doctors couldn't decide if it was my hip or back. Without surgery :) !

Dr. Craig has always been in a hurry when I have seen him. He might be a good Dr. but he has a poor bedside manner. I have to take pain meds and that always gets one labeled. Twice he has said to me "you forgot with all the medicine you take." If he had Charcot Marie Tooth disease as I do and the arthritic feet I have I doubt he would be practicing medicine. I certainly don't think he would throw off on medicines people have to take. He would see things differently. Judge not lest you be judged.

He was nice enough but is not interested in you unless you are seeking surgery or some other invasive procedure. There was no input or recommendations otherwise. He seemed impatient to leave when he realized that I did not want back surgery and made no (ZERO) recommendations regarding physical therapy, exercises, or any other action I could take to manage my back. I would not go to him again and I would not recommend him to others.

I was trying to find a minimally invasive specialist to treat my back pain without narcotics, and I'm happy I found Dr. Craig.
