Met Dr. Craven the morning of my surgery. I was impresses with his straight forward explanation of my proceedure before and after surgery. Called his office on a Friday and had surgery on Monday AM. Could not have asked for a better team at South Portland Surgical Center........each step of the way I felt well cared for and at ease.

Dr. Craven did a double hernia operation for my father in the Tualatin South Portland Surgery Center. Everything went so smoothly and the staff was exceptional. From the greeting at the door, to pre-op, the OR and post-op, I could not have asked for better treatment. Dr, Craven and the anesthesiologist, Dr. Herr were very communicative every step of the way. Both Dr.'s came in and consulted with my father and myself before surgery, and made sure all questions were answered. Dr. Craven came out immediately after surgery and reported to me. The post-op nurse Kristina was very caring to my father and engaged him in conversation making him feel comfortable and well cared for. Even though it was late in the evening, the staff stayed until he was ready to go and never felt as if we were rushed. Dr, Craven took care of making sure my father was comfortable and instructions were clear. I appreciated all of the excellent care given to him. The entire organization was like a well oiled machine.
Receptionist one of rudest women ever met
