in Colorado Springs, CO |
Good answer. It was a relief to consult Dr Drescher about my injury after consulting a less qualified professional who gave me no good hope.. I was so happy when I was given good answers and great options in physical therapy with a great doctor. Glad I chose to come here.

Great experience with Dr. Dresher! Does a great job of explaining things and doesn't rush a person through.
Thank you, Benjamin!
in Colorado Springs, CO |
I was so pleased with Dr. Dresher. He is so easy to talk with, and answers all your questions. He is compassionate and has a great bedside matter. He is an excellent surgeon and his follow up with his physician assistant helps you through the recovery. I would recommend Dr. Dresher to anyone with foot or ankle problems. He really cares about his patients.

Very pleased with the visits to this office. Dr. Dresher addressed my pain issue and proceeded with treatment that proved successful. Efficient staff and acceptable wait time.
Colorado Springs, CO |
I heard he was good, so I went to him for almost a year. But when it came to surgery, he refused to fix all the metatarsals that were severely damaged due to arthritis from an old injury. He told me he would only fix the 2nd metatarsal, and when he pressed down on my foot and I jumped due to pain, I was told "It shouldn't be that painful". Well Dr Dresher, it was very painful, but now I'm fixed, I have no pain, and the new DR. fixed 1st,2nd, & 3rd metatarsals.

He's kind, considerate, and knowledgeable.
in Elbert, CO |
No doctor in the exam room within ONE AND A HALF HOURS. And they are surprized I left. Futher, the assitant wanted to go straight to X-ray BEFORE an exam or consult. Let's get you committed to $1,000 worth of radiographs, then we'll see you. ABSOLUTELY AWFUL WAY TO RUN AN OFFICE, CARELESS, NO RESPECT FOR PATIENT'S TIME, CLEARLY THEY HAVE LEARNED HOW TO MAKE THE MONEY UP FRONT. FOLKS, YOU ONLY TAKE X-RAYS ONCE A DOCTOR SEES THE PATIENT AND DECIDES THIS IS NEEDED. BUT IN THIS OFFICE IT IS DONE ON

in Vail,CO |
My experience with Dr Dresher was poor. I felt that he was very disinterested in me and what my problems were. He had almost no solution as to help treat my problems. He was short and didn't spend much time with me. He shook my hand and told me to call back if I had any problems yet I left with problems still.
