From my own experience, Mrs Craig is brilliant. She is down to earth, very understanding, and very thorough; an outstanding physician. Together with other members of the colorectal team, she has monitored my progress since June 2015, keeping an expert eye on what could have developed into more sinister symptoms. I remain under her watch currently. Mrs Craig is extremely informative, and communicates all matters of diagnosis/prognosis, in such a way that gives her patients the knowledge to understand their condition, and work with her to establish a suitable course of treatment. I owe her much respect, and my heartfelt thanks.
I visited this doctor on the 12th February. I found her to be very easy to speak to. She listened to everything I said and put me at my ease. I felt so much better when I left her consultation rooms.
Gave me the facts whilst being reassuring. Excellent results from her surgeries and no complications. Her care felt very personal and above any expectations I arrived with. I could not recommend her highly enough, anyone in her care can count themselves very lucky.
I cannot put into words how grateful my family and I are for the treatment and care given to me during and after surgery. The staff from cleaners thru to the consultants were excellent. Thank you Best regards Alexander Bennett
Mrs Craig is a very special surgeon. She operated laparoscopically(keyhole) on me in 2016 at short notice and has dealt with me and my family in a frank and friendly way. One of her team described her to me as the best and I think that description is accurate. She also rang my wife having just finished my operation. I must also mention her support team at Trafford, especially the colorectal nurses Tracey and Yvonne. You couldn’t be in better hands. P
