I Saw him (briefly) for depression. first appointment he double booked me and kept me waiting 2 hours. Then when I did see him he was condescending and abrupt. Tried a second appointment with my wife present (at his request) because I did not want to make a judgement based on a single meeting - after all everyone can have a bad day. However he was no better. He did not give me answers to my questions and kept dodging them, rather than dealing honestly with my concerns. Essentially his approach was 'I know what is best for you and you don't need to know the details and what is involved in any treatment plans'. Essentially treating me like a young child. Lastly he recommended I see my GP and pursue a specific part of the action plan, then when by GP challenged the approach I relayed, I asked him to confirm this was his suggestion with my GP and he refused. This does not make for a great environment to build trust. He is very highly qualified but seems to have forgotten that his patients are actually people with real lives, families and commitments outside of seeing him. In summary if you want to work in partnership with your doctor, to address health issues, and be able to trust him, I would recommend finding someone other than Dr Craig.

Psychiatrists seem to use their computer a lot these days, so as they supposedly treat you, they are entering details, which make them seem distracted. However, they still don't seem to have time to recall details about you, when they bother to take such an extensive history in the first instance. This has been my experience of Dr Craig and another psychiatrist in recent years- new technology psychiatry. It seems like an academic process. Found him distracted and a bit cold in manner- made assumptions based on stereotypical ideas. Well educated obviously, but as with mental health problems, it may be my particular response to him and you may have better luck. Psychiatrists focus on the medication and seem to have little interest in day to day details of how one has to cope with particular difficulties in life and how side effects increase this difficulty and to me he was no different.
