About Craig Moores

Dr. Moores earned his medical degree from Albany Medical College in Albany, NY. He then completed a general surgery residency at Yale University School of Medicine and is certified by the American Board of Surgery. He sought further training by completing a plastic surgery residency at the University of South Carolina Medical School and completed his final year of training with a hand and microsurgery fellowship at Yale.

During his training Dr. Moores conducted research in opioid prescribing patterns and protocols to standardize opioid prescribing. He was fortunate enough to present his research nationally to the American Society of the Hand and the American Society of Plastic Surgery. In 2018 he won the resident research award from the Medical University of South Carolina division of Plastic, Reconstructive and Hand surgery.

Dr. Moores has clinical interests in hand surgery, reconstructive surgery, congenital hand defects, plastic surgery, nerve reconstruction, body contouring, breast augmentation as well as breast implant removal, skin cancer reconstruction, facial rejuvenation, and abdominal wall reconstruction. In college, he majored in studio art with a concentration in sculpture. Dr. Moores was inspired to become a plastic surgeon as this career allowed him to combine his passion for science and helping people with his passion for creative thinking and art.

His personal philosophy of care is to work with patients and families to manage their individual needs and achieve the best possible outcomes both functionally and aesthetically. Dr. Moores enjoys the time he spends with patients and their families and believes that through open and honest communication, a patient and physician can best understand each other and reach the best care decisions together.

During his medical training, Dr. Moores participated in several medical missions abroad. Throughout these experiences, he was able to use his skills as a physician, as well as his respect, and interest in different cultures to communicate with others despite language barriers. Participating in these missions was a gratifying experience that Dr. Moores wants to continue with throughout his professional career. In his downtime, Dr. Moores enjoys surfing, fly fishing, and spending time with his wife and two daughters.

  • The appointment was handled professionally and in a timely manner. Thank you so much!!

  • Need an operation and felt a lot at ease after talking to staff

  • Felt reassured that surgery was not necessary and movement test indicated complete mobile function as swelling and pain receided.

  • As always, friendly, professional, competent. Highly recommended

  • Very professional staff and doctor was extremely kind and concerned about my condition.

  • Explained my situation well

  • The Doctor and medical associates were all extremely nice and made me feel very comfortable.

  • The md entered and began the visit and left immediately upon getting a phone call. I left there not feeling listened to and no xray was taken to confirm diagnosis of arthritis. I would never go back there and will seek another opinion. I was seen by MD Moore[Name] [Name]

  • Doctor has no sense of humor

  • I was pleased with the appointment.

  • A positive visit mostly. I didn't have a feeling that the doctor truly had empathy for the amount of pain I have. He did not seem rushed though and did explain the x-rays well and offered options for treatment.

  • You're caring and you did call my psychiatrist, like you said you were going to. You got back to me right away for the surgery.

  • My issue wasn't really addressed and was given no solid answer/solution to fix my chronic wrist pain.

  • Hi. I would like to just leave a little feedback about the provider himself. I felt that he was dismissive of me at moments, especially when I came back in after having a steroid shot and feeling some numbness in my hand. I felt like he... when I asked a question about that, he seemed very irritated about that and walked away without even saying goodbye. I was very upset by that. I felt like he treated me very rudely and I did not like his attitude.

  • More communication

  • My primary care was able to get an appointment very quickly and after my appointment, they worked to get two more appointments scheduled very quickly and it was appreciated.

  • Very pleased with the care and information on my problem.

  • Was very knowledgeable and thorough but not friendly or cordial. But if I had to choose between them id pick knowledgeable and thorough

  • I really appreciated how the provide explained everything to me, treated me with respect and kindness with directly at me, when he spoke to me and was very thorough and explained all my options. I felt empowered to make the best decision for my help when I was done, I was wondering AP, I'm going to recommend this provider to any one of my friends and family.

  • When I tried to explain about my illness's they did not act interested and they are not very friendly, when I tried to ask a question I was ignored.

  • Again I was most impressed by Southcoast during/after my visit with Dr. Moore's and his staff, not to mention the cleanliness and state of the art facility. My exam and follow-up recommendation was straight forward with a doable plan of therapy. Parking was a plus, too. Southcoast Fall River continues to satisfy!!

  • Actually cared, made room for my schedule, great with talking in lay terms with me and understanding everything he said. I would recommend Dr. Moores to anybody who needed a hand surgeon. Thank you.

  • Dr. Moores's office was wonderful. The receptionist who greeted me was funny and it was delightful. The AMSA who took my information was very thorough. And Dr. Moores was fantastic. He explained everything to me. He drew diagram for me. He gave me my choices. I never, ever would have thought that I would have had the treatment that I received prior to coming in. But he explained it so well, and I felt very confident in the decision. And I'm so glad I did. I feel so much better. And he even afterwards wrote out all the instructions for me. So, it was a wonderful experience. I would highly*

  • Dr. Moore's is pleasant and very knowledgeable. He put me at ease and helped calm any anxiety I had during my initial appointment and follow-up. He went above and beyond by playing music of my choice during the procedure to help calm my nerves and it helped tremendously! He's patient and extremely professional. I would recommend him without hesitation!

  • I was very pleased with this provider Dr Moores ,he listened, explained and proceeded to explain further once the results were back from imaging he went as far as drawing so that I could have a visual of the structure and what he seen & what was going on the with the results of the X-ray so that I could understand better ; my experience as a first time patient with Dr Moores and my interactions with his staff... very professional, warm and friendly always that's welcoming.Thank You !u00A0

  • Appointment was on time. Dr Moore's explained everything to me. He has a very reassuring manner when speaking about my condition.I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of his specialty.

  • This was my first visit because of a referral from my PCP. I got an appointment immediately to check my hand for a possible break to a finger. They took X-rays and checked thoroughly, listened carefully, and provided treatment and advice. Waiting time was short throughout the visit, and the staff was extremely courteous and professional.

  • Very good experience, I understood everything and he definitely was concerned about what was happening with my healthcare.

  • Dr Moores was wonderful and thorough, the front office staff was friendly and efficient.

  • Only concern that I have is that I had a question for reception nurse that I spoke with but the office itself has a central place that I guess takes the calls and it said this back and forth to the facilities. I would just like to be able to talk to the person I spoke with said when I called the main number. She was somebody who actually had no idea what I was talking about and just got a little bit difficult. I just gave up on it. But that's the only thing that had issue.

Southcoast Health physician profiles now feature star ratings.  Below, you’ll find frequently asked questions about our process for calculating the ratings.

Why does Southcoast publish survey ratings online?
Southcoast is dedicated to providing patients and consumers with helpful information about the quality of our patients’ experiences. Star ratings published on our physician biography pages are based on actual responses from patients of that particular physician to patient satisfaction surveys that are distributed and processed by a national patient satisfaction survey vendor.

Who receives the survey?
Our vendor sends surveys via SMS or email to all patients seen in our outpatient physician practices who have a valid smart phone number or email address on file with Southcoast Health. Surveys are sent to patients within a few days of their appointment.

How is the Patient Satisfaction Star Rating Calculated?
Star ratings are calculated using an average of all survey responses to each of three questions: Courtesy and Respect of Staff, Provider Overall Rating, and  Willingness to Recommend Provider’s Office.  The star rating displayed on our physicians’ main biography page represents the average of the three measures for that particular physician.
