I was so glad to have had the opportunity to discuss my extremely painful problems with Mrs Craig. She put my mind at ease. I felt very comfortable talking to her and with her level of expertise and empathy was able to understand my ‘pain in the bum’ no pun intended! I can only but appreciate the saying! To help regain my quality of life, I’m hoping there is the possibility of further intervention to help sort/heal my perianal fistula - a horribly painful condition! An amazing lady!! Thank you Mrs Craig!
What can I say you're in good hands. I've been on a long journey with more to go and Mrs Craig has been brilliant. Not only with the surgical work carried out but also in our many conversations. If you find yourself in her care either through luck via the NHS or by personal choice believe me, you've done well for yourself.
Dr Craig was warm, patient and so kind. She made me feel so comfortable during my exam, was upfront and gave great advice. I’m so happy I came to her with my medical issue. Thank you so much Dr Craig.
