October 30, 2015

Dr. Craig is a unquie physician. he makes sure you feel safe and understand everything. He listens. A rare find these days

October 30, 2015

Nurses were having computer problems, some delay.

October 30, 2015

September 18, 2015

Great care by nurses and Dr Craig

September 14, 2015

The nurses and Dr. Craig couldn't have been better. They were very friendly, reassuring, and knowledgeable about the procedure I was having. They were awesome!

September 14, 2015

I was present for a friend's colonoscopy at another (non Univ of Utah) facility and felt that my experience was far superior. I'm very glad I picked Dr. Craig and the nurses at Redstone!!!!

September 11, 2015

Dr. Craig is a terrific physician. makes you comfortable and confident with the procedure. Give him a raise! ð¿¿·

September 11, 2015

the Nurses and support system are excellent- I've had them before for a different procedure!

September 11, 2015

I appreciated the call from a nurse after my procedure! Very professional! Thanks!

September 04, 2015

At my age we actually talk about our colonoscopy experiences - it good to be able to share a positive experience.

September 04, 2015

it was almost like being at home and not in a clinic

September 03, 2015

The physician did not talk to me or my wife after the procedure which surprised me. A nurse explained what was found however.

September 02, 2015

At start of my procedure, the nurse who was administering the sedative was concerned with another pt and piece of equipment or something that was not working right and it was unpleasant to know that she had worries and not knowing if was equipment to be used on me or was something totally separate

August 29, 2015

This was my third procedure and as in the past, Dr. Craig and his nursing staff were superb! That's why I keep returning to have them handle the procedure. Super folks!

August 27, 2015

Never got official test results although I was told to come back in 3 years.

August 24, 2015

my experience was excellent

August 24, 2015

everything was good...closeness to our home is nice...

August 22, 2015

Doctor and all the nurses were great!

August 16, 2015

everyone was professional and friendly.

August 10, 2015

Excellent experience. The difficult part is the preparation.

August 10, 2015

Excellent concern & professional care. Could not ask for better.

August 10, 2015

Excellent care/experience

August 10, 2015

poor communication before appt

August 10, 2015

leads pulled off chest and ripped skin.

August 09, 2015

excellent and very professional , deserving of the highest

August 09, 2015

I have owned and operated in a outpatient surgery center , and you facility is excellent

August 08, 2015

The intake nurse and the one that discharged me were excellent in their skills and their caring. Dr. Craig is always outstanding

August 08, 2015

very good

August 08, 2015

very good experience

August 08, 2015

dr Craig was well prepared for my visit. he had reviewed my status regarding my current cancer condition and was able to incorporate this knowledge while addressing the issues at hand. dr Craig has extremely good bedside manner and definitely sets his patients at ease. he is clearly a cut above average.

August 08, 2015

he is excellent

August 07, 2015

I believe I have been seeing Dr. Craig over 4 years. He is a wonderful, caring doctor. He always listens and answers any of my concerns.

August 03, 2015

Dr Craig and his team were really great and put me at total ease.

August 03, 2015

I'd definitely recommend Dr Craig/Redstone to others!

August 03, 2015

I would go back to Dr. Craig any time he was available but the lab service would not perform the required lab test and the receptionist there did not seem to know who Dr. Craig was. Consequently a 1-2 hour visit took more than 3 hours!! Once I finally was able to receive the required lab test every thing was perfect!!

August 02, 2015

The colonoscopy procedure and experience were excellent. The following days were not so pleasant. I went to the U of U ER on Tuesday afternoon and was admitted into the Hospital with a perforated bowel from the procedure.

July 30, 2015

Dr. Craig is a fantastic physician with an incredible bedside manner.

July 27, 2015

I had no abnormalities during the procedure, so the nurse could give me the post-surgery info.

July 27, 2015

Nurses/doctor were open and sensitive to my concerns. They took plenty of time to answer my questions and make me comfortable.

July 26, 2015

Again, a great experience considering I was very nervous and apprehensive.

July 26, 2015

The doctor was great to work with.

July 26, 2015

The nurse named Bill came in to put in my IV. He was excellent, got me on the first poke. The physician was very informative, kind and concerned for my well being. I loved the nurse, Kelly who administered the sleep medication was also very on the ball, and addressed my fears and concerns. Overall, was one of the best experiences I have ever had in healthcare. Thank you kindly!!!

July 26, 2015

My husband now needs his colonoscopy. Will highly recommend and follow through because of this highly positive experience.

July 26, 2015

I already recommended three friends of mine to University of Utah Healthcare.

July 23, 2015

We have recommended Dr. Craig to others. He does an excellent job.

July 22, 2015

Overall, a very satisfactory experience!

July 22, 2015

Working at UHSC, I have always heard about "exceptional patient experience" initiatives and so forth, and always been disappointed in the past with other experiences (especially at the ER). This is the first time I can say that it was an exceptional patient experience from start to finish. This was a "routine" procedure but of course anxiety producing for me, and the care and comfort I received is greatly appreciated.

July 22, 2015

Cindy, the IV nurse, was excellent - personable and calming. It made a difference. Also, the nurse who prepped (can't remember name) gave a detailed explanation of the procedure - again, excellent.

July 18, 2015

Always confident in Dr Craig as well as his nurses. they all care and give me the best care. I am so pleased. I give Dr Craig a 10.

July 18, 2015

Dr Craig is amazing. Hes an excellent doctor. the nursing staff are excellent. they always take good care of me.

July 18, 2015

I always recommend Dr Craig.

July 15, 2015

Excellent, cheery and very informative

July 13, 2015

I won't dread going there in the future.

July 13, 2015

Best colonoscopy experience ever and this was #4

July 13, 2015

I loved all the people there, great care.

July 13, 2015

from every perspective, Dr. Richard Craig and his team are the best medical team I've ever seen

July 11, 2015

Good attention

July 05, 2015

I cannot recommend Dr. Craig or his treatment team to others because of their blatant disregard of my right to decide whether to have an IV. I ended up having bruising, a skin reaction and pain, some for several days, from the unnecessary IV.

July 05, 2015

Dr. Craig disregarded my right not to have an IV without even meeting with me first. The nurse who took me to the room was the only person on the treatment team who had any sensitivity to my rights. She was friendly and initially stated that I choose not to have medications, sedation or an IV. Dr. Craig overturned her. The nurse in the examination room was rude, agitated, and dismissive. The recovery nurse was dismissive. The nurse in the examination room also failed to follow my express instruction not to run the IV solution drip.

July 05, 2015

Nurses did not give my family any information, nor did they give me any information about caring for myself at home. One of the reasons stated for dictating an IV was for the convenience of the nurse in the examination room, which lead me to believe that she was incompetent to start an IV in an emergency situation. Dr. Craig tried to convince to have sedation. His description of what I might experience during the procedure was inaccurate, which causes me to distrust what he says about anything else. The whole procedure seemed rushed.

July 01, 2015

I would very definately return to your facility. My experience there was, very pleasant and relaxed... I was very impressed with both the facility and the staff.

July 01, 2015

The doctors and nurses had a great bedside manner.

July 01, 2015

My family wasn't in the center during the procedure.

May 03, 2015

Dr Craig will always take the time he needs with his patients. Even though he was behind, he did not make me feel like he was rushing through the appointment.

April 19, 2015

Dr. Craig is a gem. The most dedicated, knowledgable, kind and caring physician. I consider it a privilege to be a patient of his. This man is pure gold and a gift to the University Hospital. I hope Hospital administration recognizes his immense contribution to the well being of his patients. Smart, kind, caring, compassionate, dedicated with strong emotional intelligence.Bed side manners are remarkable. Words do not do the justice and do not describe his incredible gift.All I can say is that he is simply wonderful.

March 24, 2015

Dr. Craig is the best. He was very kind and concerned for the situation. Couldn't have asked for him to be better.

March 23, 2015

Dr Craig is amazing!! Best Doctor ever.

February 28, 2015

The follow up visit was very informative and gave me a good understanding of the results from the procedure and recommendations to follow in the future. Dr. Craig was very good at explaining this and showed a caring attitude.

February 03, 2015

Dr. Craig is a delightful person. He is caring, helpful and I feel as though I am always in good hands when he is charge of my care. Dr. Craig is the BEST!

January 04, 2015

I was referred to Dr. Craig by an employee/relative and I couldn't be any more pleased with the professionalism & mounds of knowledge I receive from Dr. Craig. I will refer him and will continue to see him regarding my needs.

May 29, 2014

I love Dr. Craig. He is an amazing doctor. I've been going to him for years and plan to continue. He is caring, concerned, personable and very professional. He takes the time needed to talk and listen and doesn't rush you. He wants to see you heal and become well. He helps me look at all options and gives great suggestions and advise. He willingly shares my information with my other doctors as needed. He explains things well when I don't understand everything.

May 28, 2014

February 24, 2014

It was my first visit and we were just going over what is wrong and what others have already tried so we did not really struck out on a new path yet.

December 19, 2013

Dr. Craig has been my specialty doctor for over 6 years. He is always, cheerful, helpful and shows concern when I have them about any problems I may medically be experiencing. He takes the time to explain and makes sure that I understand. I would so recommend him to anyone who needs his specialty.
