Welcome to the office of Dr. Craig Creasman. We are proud to share our state-of-the-art office and operating facility with you, prior to your visit with Dr. Creasman. Contained herein is a map to our office, overview of our office policies, and information about our operating suite, including accreditation information. Please call 408-369-9300 or email email@example.com if you have any questions after reviewing this website..
We are located in San Jose, very close to the town of Los Gatos. Our office building is cross the street from The Good Samaritan Hospital of Santa Clara Valley. Here is a picture of our office building:
2400 Samaritan Drive Suite 206

Here is a map of the surrounding area:
As you can see from the map, we are very accessible from several expressways, including Highway 85 and Highway 17. Here is a close up map of the local area surrounding our office:
We have a new, clean office with a quiet, soothing waiting room atmosphere. Here is a picture of our waiting room:
When you arrive, you will be greeted by one of our pleasant staff. We schedule our appointments so that you have as little waiting time as possible. We ask that you be prompt to your appointment. You can streamline the process even further by completing the pre-registration form on this website.
After completing the paperwork necessary to generate a patient record for you, you will be seen by Dr. Creasman. We do not use videos in our practice. You may bring a friend, spouse, or significant other to the appointment. We ask that you NOT bring small children to our office, as this almost always interferes with the consultation, and you will not get as much out of the visit as if you arrange for child care ahead of time.
For patients being evaluated for certain procedures, we make use of a sophisticated computer imaging system. Digital images may be gathered prior to your visit with the doctor, so that during the consultation he can show you what you might expect with the surgical treatment, if this is appropriate. You will be asked to sign a consent form to give your approval to have your pictures taken. They will not be used outside of our office without your permission (this includes use on this website).
If Dr. Creasman determines that a surgical procedure is indicated and you are interested, he will determine the appropriate fee estimate prior to your departure. You will be given the fee quote in writing, itemizing the respective areas of cost, such as operating room expenses, anesthesia, implants, and surgeon’s fee. You can find out about our payment policies in the Financial Center .
We have a state-of -the-art operating room with facilities for providing the safest, yet most private care available. Dr. Creasman’s operating room is accredited by the American Association for the Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAASF). Mandated by the State of California in 1996, all freestanding outpatient surgical facilities administering sedation of any kind during the performance of any type of surgical procedure must be accredited by one of only three approved accrediting bodies rigorous enough to meet the tough standards put out by AB 595. Medicare licensure, accreditation by AAAHC, and AAAASF are the only facility accreditation bodies one should give credence to when evaluating the safety of a facility.
Here is a picture of our office operating room:
Dr. Creasman takes facility accreditation very seriously, and satisfies all of the requirements of the State of California, including periodic, on-site inspection, peer-review, and compliance with CAL-OSHA standards.

Our office is very committed to providing our patients with safe, compassionate care. Here is our ‘Patient’s Bill of Rights’, which we proudly display in our pre-operative holding area:
- The patient has the right to considerate and respectful care.
- The patient has the right to obtain from his/her physician complete current information concerning his/her diagnosis, treatment and prognosis in terms the patient can be reasonably expected to understand. When it is not medically advisable to give such information to the patient, the information should be made available to an appropriate person in his/her behalf. He/she has the right to know, by name, the physician responsible for coordinating his/her care.
- The patient has the right to receive from his/her physician information necessary to give informed consent prior to the start of any procedure and/or treatment. Except in emergencies, such information for informed consent should include but not necessarily be limited to the specific procedure and/or treatment, the medically significant risks involved, and the probable duration of incapacitation. Where medically significant alternatives for care or treatment exist, or when the patient requests information concerning medical alternative, the patient has the right to know the name of the person responsible for the procedures and/or treatment.
- The patient has the right to refuse treatment to the extent permitted by law and to be informed of the medical consequences of his/her action.
- The patient has the right to every consideration of his/her privacy concerning his/her medical care program. Case discussions, consultation, examination, and treatment are confidential and should be conducted discreetly. Those not directly involved in his/her care must have permission of the patient to be present.
- The patient has the right to expect that all communications and records pertaining to his/her care should be treated as confidential
- The patient has the right to expect that within its capacity, this accredited ambulatory surgery facility must provide evaluation, service and/or referral as indicated by the urgency of the case. When medically permissible, a patient may be transferred to another facility only after he/she has received complete information and explanation concerning the needs for and alternatives to such a transfer. The institution to which the patient is to be transferred must first have accepted the patient for transfer.
- The patient has the right to obtain information as to any relationship of this facility to other health care and educational institutions insofar as his/her care is concerned. The patient has the right to obtain information as to the existence of any professional relationships among individuals, by name, who are treating him/her.
- The patient has the right to be advised if this accredited ambulatory surgery facility proposes to engage in or perform human experimentation affecting his/her care or treatment. The patient has the right to refuse to participate in such research projects.
- The patient has the right to expect reasonable continuity of care. He/she has the right to know in advance what appointment times and physicians are available and where. The patient has the right to expect that this facility will provide a mechanism whereby he/she is informed by his physician of the patient’s continuing health care requirements following discharge.
- The patient has the right to examine and receive an explanation of his/her bill regardless of the source of payment.
- The patient has the right to know what facility rules and regulations apply to his/her conduct as a patient.
No catalog of rights can guarantee for the patient the kind of treatment he/she has a right to expect. This facility has many functions to perform, including the prevention and treatment of disease, the education of both health professionals and patients, and the conduct of clinical research. All these activities must be conducted with an overriding concern for the patient, and above all, the recognition of his/her dignity as a human being. Success in achieving this recognition assures success in the defense of the rights of the patient.
It is the patient’s responsibility to fully participate in decisions involving his/her own health care and to accept the consequences of these decisions if complications occur.
The patient is expected to follow up on his/her doctor’s instructions, take medication when prescribed, and ask questions concerning his/her own health care that he/she feels is necessary.
