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.

  • ZERO COMPLAINTS ! The only way this could have been better was for them to waive the co-pay.

  • Because of Covid19 the check-in and check-out people are masked and behind a plastic wall. I'm 75 and I don't have the best hearing. I think it would be a good idea to have a speaker on my side of the plastic wall. The people on the other side of this wall don't speak loud enough for me and I'm constantly asking for them to repeat what that said. This is done numerous times. This is the same issue at the bank and any other places with plastic barriers.I received electric and pin jabs which was not uncomfortable. The doctor did a good job of explaining the problems I have on my hands. I think he did a good job of that and that will help me with my decisions.

  • The doctor was very good with me and patience with me knowing I have autism and deaf he was nice and respectful and caring and professional we need more doctors like this doctor great patient care great doctor

  • 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.

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.
