Mrs. Craig is very friendly and approachable. I felt listened to and supported in my initial appointment and she helped me feel at ease when discussing the best treatment for me.

Mrs Craig kindly fitted me in as I never made it to my original appointment as I was stick in traffic. She asked all the write questions, listened to what I had to say and totally put me at ease when examining me.

Mrs Craig has been an extremely wonderful surgeon and I highly recommend her. Pre-pandemic, I had been suffering with a perianal abscess. Unfortunately, due to various issues, this problem persisted and in total, I've had several procedures done. The pandemic served to further delayed my treatment, as all elective procedures were postponed. After the hospitals and clinics starting opening up again, Mrs Craig did her best to prioritise placing me on her list as soon as she could, which was greatly appreciated. It has been a long and arduous journey, but I have finally been discharged from Mrs Craig's care after successful treatment. My perianal abscess was treated with a seton. I had been advised by Mrs Craig that I needed to floss the seton twice daily. Though I did so, initially, it later on transpired that my efforts weren't enough, as sometimes I felt the pain too much to bear. After the 1st seton was removed in a subsequent operation, the abscess eventually re-manifested itself. As a result, I had to have a 2nd seton placed within. This time however, I did my best and flossed daily- as vigorous as I could, twice daily. Though it was painful, I gritted through. Ultimately, I was rewarded for my efforts as the subsequent operation to remove the 2nd seton proved to the last time I would need a procedure relating to this procedure. Mrs Craig herself commented that I had done a very good job with the flossing, as she could tell that the seton was hanging a lot lower than when she had placed it- proving that I had been very vigorous with the floss. I want to thank Mrs Craig again for being a consummate professional throughout this ordeal. I always felt that she was on my side and I always gave me the confidence that she would ultimately be successful. Cheers Mrs Craig, you're a star!
