Biography

For as long as he can remember, Brad Craft, MD, knew that he wanted to a surgeon. He brings this level of dedication and certainty to his practice today. “I emphasize that every single one of my patients deserves quality medical and surgical care,” he says.

Dr. Craft’s practice is built around a philosophy that the patient always comes first. He believes that his most important role—and what he enjoys most about his practice—is building relationships with patients and their families. “I always aim for open and honest communication with each patient,” he says, “so that they will understand the problem and will make good health care choices.”

After studying microbiology and bio-chemistry from Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, Dr. Craft earned his medical degree from University of Utah School of Medicine. He then completed his internship with University of Cincinnati College of Medicine, Cincinnati, Ohio, where he also finished his residency in general surgery.  Dr. Craft completed a fellowship at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine and Shriners Hospitals for Children Burns Institute and has special training in research surgical nutrition and critical care of burns.

When not working, Dr. Craft enjoys spending time with his wife and five children; together they enjoy travel and outdoor activities such as scuba diving and riding motorcycles.

About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

Excellent care in every respect. Went out of their way in follow-up care. As I am alone, and would have been hard/impossible to change wound dressing they changed my dressing daily.

Dr. Craft came in abruptly and before I could say anything was telling me the following, "Most poeple don't even get lymphoma removed unless they hurt or bother them ". He seemed to be telling me that I didn't even need to be there. He didn't jumped right into telling me he wouldn't even do the surgery if my INSURANCE wouldn't cover it, he wouldn't do it. He further explainest that his passed patience are SHOCKED when he sens them a bill, and its to much and they are confused. Repeatedly, I asked him why he's talking to me about money and other patients. He was abrupt when asking me to take off my shirt to feel the lymphoma on my back. Didnt offer me a covering. This is exactly what happenet and I will never ever return to his office again. he did ask me if I had questions, and I asked him, " Why are you telling me what most people do or don't do? Why are you already concerned about money/ insurance? He never once let me tell him why I wanted the lymphoma removed. He was alreadt talking over me. I have individual needs and dont want to hear about how he's not getting paid by other patients prior and whether or not I even need this surgery. His abrasive approach and "he already knows what I should be doing " attitude and arregantt bedside manner and inability to even let me talk, was literally the worse experience I have ever had with a Doctor.

Dr. Craft's office and staff the most professional, compassionate and respectful group I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. I not only would recommend them I have recommended friends and family members as well to Dr. Craft's practice, they are the best in my opinion.
