Dr Craig is a great doctor, however, Margaret in the office is very rude. They don’t always call to confirm appointments but lie and say they did. Then charge a $50 missed appointment fee. Margaret will refuse to waive it and her attitude is so nasty. I have read other reviews and this seems to be their normal way of doing business. I would give them a negative 5 if I could. Beware of making any appointments with this office.

Dr. Craig has performed surgery on two of three of my children. I was very nervous because both my boys went into surgery at the same time and my one son was very young. Dr. Craig put my worries at easy. Now years later he is seeing my daughter, it takes alot for a person to in trust someone with thier children. I never have a doubt he has their best interest at heart. Thank you!

Staff is terrible; I called to dispute a missed appointment charge, was told I'd have to submit copies of my phone records to prove there was no reminder message left as I never scheduled this appointment. I assumed it would be a courteous exchange but staff told me only the doctor could waive the $25 fee. It was the principle so I told them to have the doctor call me. Instead I received "Termination of Care" letter and advised to find a new doctor. Chose elsewhere .

DR. Craig and his staff are wonderful and caring people. I'm am here today because Dr. Craig cares about my health, and always listens to what I'm saying, he answers all my questions honestly, and is very understanding of my fears befor surgery. He has preformed 3 of the four surgeries I have had for cancer.he is also very knowledgeable in the are of the rare cancer I am living with.

I would really like to give Dr. Craig a higher rating. He is knowledgeable and very nice as his staff. The problem is that we have been to see him 3 times. appointment 1 & 3 was just short of a 2 hour delay and appointment 2 was over 2 hours. The waiting room is uncomfortably small. If the times and small waiting room doesn't bother you than absolutely I would recommend him.
