This dr and I use the title lightly is the worst I have ever had to endure. He was dismissive and unconcerned about my condition. He told me to “go home your fine”, my antibodies where off the charts attacking my thyroid and he didn’t care. Saying don’t worry it will die and we will just up your thyroid meds. My husband was in the office with me so he heard everything and saw how rude he was to me.

I have been going to Dr. Drimoussis for three or four years now. When I first walked into Dr. Drimoussis office I was a mess, my A1C was through the roof, I was tired all the time, I had developed Diabetic Retinopothy and Neuropothy in my feet and hands. Dr. Drimoussis had me come into the office every week until he got my numbers under control. I have seen several Endo doctors over the years and Dr. D is the absolute best. He tells it like it is and I need that kind of guidance. Thank You Dr. D and to your entire staff. I appreciate you care.

Been going to this doctor for 10 years. Recently complained to office manager about continuing error in refill prescription for insulin. Have now been told not to come back. Letter said issue had been discussed with me but no one ever discussed it with me, certainly Dr. D did not discuss. Guess one is not allowed to complain. Time to find a new doctor.

The first couple times I went to hear Dr. Drimmousis he seemed competent, caring and had a good bedside manner. He also promised me never have to wait in his office. Jump forward about a year and everything has changed. He kept me waiting for over an hour and it seems like he does not like Mondays as every time I had a Monday appointment it got canceled or rescheduled. His bedside manner also became atrocious. I don’t know what happened to him in this period of time but it must’ve been something pretty drastic.I would not recommend him.

I went in to see this doctor with legitimate concerns. He was dismissive and condescending, treating me like an elderly, moronic, hypochondriac. My daughter, who is a PhD professor who teaches upper level class men who are going into medicine was also answered in a dismissive, condescending manner. I will not even return for my bloodwork follow-up. I saw my primary care physician today, who by the way is a female and got answers and suggestions for remedies to all of my concerns.

Dr. was running late at 9 AM. Dr. would not take time to allow or answer questions, kept interrupting, saying "I fix you" Argued with patient about patients prior board certified MD and his abilities. Dr. was very abrupt and in a hurry. Staff interrupted my appointment 4 different times in the short amount of time provided. I would not recommend nor would I go back to see Dr.

I have attended with many endocrinologists but Dr. Drimoussis has been the best of all since the first visit made that same day a specialist attended me without an appointment and was very diligent and professional. The other doctors have to learn from him.

I have recommend Dr "D" to one friend. I found Dr "D" and his staff to be exceptional, and well educated in the management of my diabetes. Dr "D" is the best! His assistant Kiana has helped us with obtaining approvals that we needed to obtain correct dosage of insulin. Thank you so much!
