It is VERY surprising to read a negative review of this fine doctor. I had been a patient of Dr. Deinlein until his heart attack. I wanted to stay under the care of Southlake Orthopedics as I had friends who recommended it. I appreciated his careful explanation of his plan of care. I am very happy with my doctor.

He simply does not care about his patients. I was in tears at my appointment and he did not care at all. His assistant stood in the corner staring st me like I was crazy. I can’t move my foot therefore I can not walk. His staff said they had no reason to fill out my Short term disability forms because he didn’t note in my chart. I work retail, it is a given that I can’t work.They kept the $25 fee to fill out the forms. He ordered an MRI but the follow up appointment is over a month away. Grrr

Does not communicate well. Great salesman for his procedures but does not care to find the actual problem. I had an SI joint injection with absolutely no relief. Went back for follow up with his NP (which was great) and she found a fracture in my hip and ordered more tests. The next visit he denied it and told me I have arthritis (at 31) and referred me to a rheumatologist. I would not recommend him to anyone. The staff is also rude and go along with the lies.

Great Dr. Very good bedside Manner and is attentive to my needs as a Patient, He has performed numerous procedures on my neck and back (Radio Frequency Ablations) and I have been very pleased with the outcome. The procedures have made me have about 80% reduction in pain. I encourage anyone with a pain management problem to go see him, he is a Miracle Worker . Wonderful young man ! and Dr.

My experience with Dr. Craig was not very good. I would ask questions about other options other than his and he would criticize and put them down. (example: laparoscopic lazar) He would call other avenues of treatment quackery. He came across very self absorbed. I thought this was very unprofessional.

It seems as if my age (or lack thereof) is reason enough to believe I don't truly have a problem. So far $500 wasted in copays for the visits and PT. When you go in knowing how awful ESIs are for your bones and that they won't actually help so you tell him you won't consider them at all, and he rolls his eyes. Real professional. Very arrogant and condescending. I would not recommend him to anyone.

Treatment administered -- spinal steroid injection -- was completely ineffective, and in fact caused negative side effects. My subsequent research suggests that this procedure is hardly ever effective for my symptoms, and yet the experience cost me $500 in co-pays. These folks had the nerve to bill my insurance company $6,965 for nothing. Dr. Craig did not even mention side effects, which are very common with injections of this type of treatment. This is a production line practice.

Dr. Craig is condescending and has poor bedside manner. He can put on a show and smooth talk for A bit of a quick sale, but he lacks compassion and the ability to truly listen and to empathize with his patients. I did not visit him for an injury but for an ongoing health concern. I left his office feeling heavy and discouraged, and actually upset that I have to pay for the visit.
