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. He is board certified in general surgery.
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.

Provider excellent. Purpose of visit: Follow-up from annual MRI. Problem with staff member - failed to contact me to schedule follow-up visit after MRI. I had to call them to set up the appointment. This has happened more than once.Providence Patient
Dr. Craft was kind but brusque. He brushed aside my questions and said he'd cover them later but never did. I was fairly taken aback by my situation and couldn't remember them @ the end of the appt.Providence Patient
