He was wonderful, we saw him at Overland Park Regional. You could tell he had been doing this a long time. Was very calming and explained things really well. Not only him but the entire office staff, nurse, ultrasound tech, all of them were genuinely nice and were great. Highly recommend.

As a parent with two children who were born with congenital heart defects, I highly recommend Dr. Drake. . . Twice! He is a great communicator and personally calls with test results to answer questions that I might have. He has a wonderful support staff working with him that are also very patient-centered. I always feel that we were “cared for” when the appointment is over.

Dr Drake is the BEST! He has been my son's pediatric cardiologist since his birth in 2011. He supports many of the congenital heart defect support groups and shows up and runs 5/10K to support CHD awareness. He truly cares about the welfare of your child!!
