Dr. Craig Oser is a highly skilled double board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon and was the first D.O. to be Chief Resident of Plastic Surgery.

Once sought after for a reality show, he became interested in acting and was fascinated with the story of The Gaslight and John Mitchell.  Despite his incredibly busy schedule between 6 different facilities, his love of the arts and acting convinced him to make time to play this role.
