Great doctor. He was very blunt & to the point when I met him prior to my surgery. I appreciated him for putting my neck back together. I was told he was the best in NC & that is why my primary physician referred me to him. Going to miss you Dr. Craig. Blessings to you as you start the next chapter of your life journey!
