The following are reviews from patients of Dr. Kraft.
  • "I visited with Dr. Kraft's assistant regarding a swelling in my right knee. I injured it by training for races in the Pro race series. The doctor explained that it was probably due to a strain. The doctor recommended I stay off the running for a week. I did not immediately follow this advice. However, after a week of running in pain, I stayed off for ten days. I felt the knee recover after that. I am back to running. I appreciated the quick and accurate diagnosis, since I previously had surgery on the same knee." -- Paul G.

  • "Recently I had a work related on the job injury to my back. I was so pleased I was able to see my primary physician, Dr. Rod Kraft. Dr. Kraft goes way beyond the usual office visit to make sure every detail of your condition is taken care of and explained to me in common lay terms what my problem is and that it was going to take time to heal. I didn't want to take time off from work, but he insisted it would be impossible for me to continue and more damage would be done. Of course he was right. From scheduling for an MRI (thanks Angela) to setting up appointments for other doctors has been so smooth. His entire staff has been so helpful and professional. Just being at Sierra Pacific Orthopedics gives you a secure feeling with so many professionals and also the facilities from the X-Ray department to Summit Surgery Center. It's peace of mind that you are being well taken care of." -- Darwin B.

  • "I had a stroke at work on May 23, 2012. I was in St. Agnes for two days recovering. I really needed to follow up with a doctor, but I could not get into see a neurologist. I called Dr. Kraft's office and they took me in right away. I was very weak. Dr. Kraft saw me at the end of May and bent over backwards to help me. He wrote a prescription for a walker, because I was too weak to walk. He did the referral process to get me into see a neurologist. When I kept getting put off by the neurologist’s office and they wouldn't make an appointment for me, I went back and talked to Dr. Kraft and he got me an appointment with another neurologist. Dr. Rod Kraft got me into OT, PT, and Speech Therapy as soon as he could. He really listened and helped me above and beyond when it was hard to get appointments. Dr. Kraft is a doctor I respect. I know that he cares about his patients. He is a great Doctor. He has been our family doctor for over 20 years. He goes out of his way to serve.  When my daughter was on a running scholarship in college and came home one weekend with foot fractures. He was kind to see her and make sure she got correct medical care. He also wrote a note to the coach letting her have the time off to heal. This caring doctor really has blessed our family. My son, who is now 24, was once a little Boy Scout. He had a big awards ceremony to go to for scouts but he had broken his wrist at school. Dr. Kraft saw him near 6:00 p.m. and stayed after his own workday to put a cast on Matthew so he could attend his ceremony. Dr. Kraft cared and went above and beyond. It made Matt feel so special that he could go to the scout event. I think all of the staff had gone home by the time Dr. Kraft finished. Dr. Kraft is one in a million. Thank goodness for the great man he is." -- Norma S.

  • "My experience with Dr. Rod Kraft was an absolute answer to prayer. After two years of going to a pain management doctor, having an MRI on my back, and having a series of shots in my lower lumbar area, I was not getting any better. I had an appointment with Dr. Kraft and his diagnosis of the major problem being my hip was truly a miracle. He immediately got an appointment for me with Dr. Thomas Thomas and nurse practitioners, Ken and Lisa, and rather quickly I was in the Fresno Surgical Hospital with Dr. Thomas Thomas successfully performing left hip replacement surgery on me. This surgery was on June 13 and I am doing quite well now and I am not needing a walker or cane anymore. Thank you Drs. Kraft and Thomas and nurse practitioners, Ken and Lisa, and all the wonderful people at Sierra Pacific Orthopedics, and Fresno Surgical Hospital." -- Conrad S.

  • "Dr. Rod Kraft has been my primary physician for 16 years. I value his experience and care. I have remained fairly healthy during this time, but I know Dr. Kraft is there when I am ill. For conditions beyond his expertise, Dr. Kraft has referred me to several doctors at Sierra Pacific Orthopedics and to specialists outside of Sierra Pacific Orthopedics when necessary.Dr. Tanner and his associates are caring for my bilateral carpal tunnel syndrome and arthritic thumbs. I have recently seen Dr. Toby Johnson and Steven Goss, P.A. for treatment of this condition. I anticipate that I will have to have surgery soon but I am not afraid to put my hands in Dr. Tanner's care. Dr. Dunklin has treated my foot injury. Dr. Wiens has performed two nerve conduction studies on me; with calm, gentle attention.I appreciate all of the physicians, physician assistants, nurses, medical assistants, and front office personnel I have come in contact with at Sierra Pacific Orthopedics and feel fortunate to receive medical care there." -- Jean K.

  • "My experience was as great as visiting the doctor can be. I had an appointment at 3:45 p.m. and was seen by the doctor within a few minutes of arriving at the office. I had to be sent downstairs for an X-ray and I was escorted there and back. When done, Dr. Kraft read the X-ray and diagnosed me. My entire time spent was around 30 minutes and I was treated very well by very professional staff.  My past visits have been similar to this one and I am quite pleased with my doctor, his staff, and everyone working in the building." -- Jon H.

  • "Sherri Hyatt, the PA for Dr. Rod Kraft, is very knowledgeable in her field. I had a lot of anxiety regarding my medical issues; she not only eased it, she eliminated it. She effectively transitioned spirituality, counseling, and human well-being into my prescription which was well-received. She was diligent in her direct contact with me by phone as opposed to the alternative. She ran the tests, she made a diagnosis based on those results, and she followed up as a professional.  In addition, I love that she is personable and 'real,' and she really knows her stuff. Dr. Kraft and his team have earned an A+ once again. I haven't felt this good in 7 years. I feel like Sherri has influenced a healthy lifestyle upon me and given me a new lease on life." --Cynthia M.

  • "For 10 years I suffered from ulcerative colitis. At one point I was seeing three different specialists for not only my condition, but also the side effects from treating my condition. At the age of 29 I was in a dark place, spending most of my days sick and in pain. Dr. Kraft saved my life. He was aggressive with my treatment and let me know that he was going to do everything he could to make me well. Where others treated symptoms he went after the cause of my sickness. Through his care and guidance I went through a life altering surgery to remove my small intestine. This the choice to have this aggressive surgery saved my life. That was seven years ago and my life has changed in so many ways. I am now a father of three, I am the head men's soccer coach at West Hills College, and last year became the Director of Athletics at West Hills College. Whenever I have a doctors appointment I feel like I am going to see a friend who has my best interest in mind and cares about not only me, but also my family. I go with confidence to Sierra Pacific Orthopedics knowing that I am apart of the family not just a patient. All the best." -- Allen F.

  • “After seeking a recommendation from my OB/GYN of which general practitioner he'd recommend for my active lifestyle, he mentioned only one name. "Dr. Rod Kraft. He understands active freaks like you." I was delighted to hear that he was still caring for families and athletes throughout the valley, as I had not forgotten him (nor his name) since my high school days. I'll admit, I do qualify as an active freak/woman/mother/massage therapist. Never before have I had a doctor giggle with honesty (after seeing plantar fasciitis introducing itself to my foot) and say, "Well, I know you're going to run whether I tell you to or not. So, I'll just tell you that it will likely hurt. Have fun at Two Cities Marathon this weekend and come back next week if you need to!" Brutal honesty at it's finest. And for the record, he was right! It did hurt, but after taking his side-note (something about 'resting/going easy' for a few months) I'm back at it, pain-free! He's a father figure to people of all ages. Never before have I heard directly from a doctor after business hours reviewing normal test results. He definitely knows how to put peoples' minds at ease. The only way he could be a better doctor would be to prescribe a dose of patience to me...and that's one thing I never expect to happen.”
