Ratings for Dr. Thomas G. Craven
I couldn't stand for more than 5 - 10 minutes because of lower back and leg pain. I had exhausted all avenues for relief over the years until I went to Dr. Craven and he diagnosed my condition correctly. People sometimes complain about his lack of a bedside manner. For me, like all relationships, we warmed up to each other as the process proceeded. I under went surgery in January of this year. and now I'm doing great six months later. No pain meds now, etc. In fact, I've done great since the surgery. (Be patient and through during recovery and keep yourself iced to reduce swelling.) I didn't need a hand holding doctor, I needed a great surgeon and in my book I got one in spades.
I had back surgery 11/11/14 and the after prognosis was and is wonderful. My first step was pain free and I'm still pain free. I've had about every kind of surgery there is in 71 years and have never been more satisfied. I would recommend Dr. Cravens without hesitation.Terry Schroeder/ 2/13/15
Dr. Craven does has a God syndrome. Heaven forbid you hurt after surgery, he will not hear it. He will actually tell you that he doesn't care. He will tell you he fixed you and there is nothing he can do for you. He will ask you..why are you here?
Ok I really shouldn' t look at things like this I guess. I have talked to a nurse and scrub tech that I know whom have both worked with and had work done thru Dr. Craven. I found the clinic staff very nice and helpful. I found Dr. Craven to be very nice as well (no complex - PS I'm in health care field and VERY aware of GOD Complex Doctors - I did NOT feel this from him. He didn't even jump to say surgery left that up to me with information. I already had donor disc and fusion at C4-5 and now the level above is messed up because of a fall ! I will have hardware removed from prior level and bad disc removed from current level along with donor disc and fusion at new level. I don't believe a disc not having proper fusion would have a lot to do with the doctor. I would think like organs sometimes things don't take could be wrong. I am hopeful and really hope this surgery gives me feeling back in my left arm/hand and takes pain away !
