I have the utmost respect for this lady. Since 2015, when she found an uncommon type of tumour in my lower bowel, she has guided through multiple procedures, including MRI & CT scans, sigmoidoscopies, colonoscopies, and the associated investigations. At all points she has kept me up to date with results, opinions, and prognosis. She has an excellent manner when dealing with patients, is very reassuring, has a lovely sense of humour, and is very professional. Had Mrs Craig not embarked on my particular course of treatment 4 years ago, I often wonder how different my life could have been.

I've only had an initial consultation with with Mrs Craig but i'm extremely impressed. She was lovely, very personable and able to create a relaxed environment in which I felt able to discuss those things which we often don't like to discuss! She took the time to listen to everything I wished to mention, I never felt rushed and I was provided with clear information and plans. From my one appointment I feel assured that Mrs Craig is the best person to help find the root of my issues.

I went with my hearing impaired, partially sighted 89 year old Mum for the appointment. Mrs Craig was excellent, speaking clearly and loudly to my Mum so that she could hear and gave a thorough and easy to understand explanation of what Mums problems were and what was to be done about them. She used clear diagrams to illustrate her explanations and provided us with a leaflet to take home. All the staff we encountered from the reception onward were very helpful and friendly. My Mum was completely put at her ease and we both came away feeling we had been fully informed and had been given excellent care and attention by Mrs Craig and all the staff at Trafford General. Thank you very much.
