Dr Dresher is very knowledgeable about my ankle and what I need to do physically to keep my ankle safe and injury-free. I was using an insole that my physical therapist had recommended, but Dr. Dresher was able to provide me his wisdom about that insole- that my ankle was not strong enough for that. I really like that I can speak with him about each of my concerns, and he easily shares his knowledge.

Dr. Drescher in one of the best foot orthos around. He is conservative, professional, knowledgeable, and kind. He has been treating my arthritic big toes for years with steroid injections that keep me pain-free for 6-10 months. He never pushes surgery. I highly recommend him!

Dr. Dresher made a thorough examination, explaining as he progressed. He explained his diagnosis and treatment recommendations and asked me to return for a re-exam after six weeks of physical therapy and wearing a night splint on my foot. I was glad to know what was wrong. He is very personable and open. I liked him very much and felt confident leaving his office.

I've been a patient of Dr. Dresser for several years regarding injuries to my right ankle resulting from sports and over exertions over the years of one kind or another. Dr. Dresser and his staff have been very good to me during this stressful period in my life. I received excellent treatment for a very complicated and difficult ankle situation.

Dr. Dresher is so kind and personable. He takes the time needed with his patients and does a thorough evaluation. He has treated my son and was great with a tween/teen and has also treated my 72 year old mother. Both my son and mother really liked him. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Drescher always takes the time to explain things and answer my many questions. He is big on gaining as much info as possible before surgery, so X-rays, MRIs, and even input from specialists. He makes clear what to expect after a surgery. I trust him.

I went to Dr. Dresher for a second opinion on ankle surgery I had received elsewhere. He was very highly recommended and had great reviews. I had my ankle surgery from a broken ankle in February and even though that was nine months ago, my ankle is still swollen and painful. I’m anxious to see what form of treatment that Dr. Dresher is going to recommend to expedite my recovery from the surgery I had in February. Since he has been so highly recommended by friends and reviews, I feel confident that he will be able to help with this situation after he reviews a CT scan that he has suggested I have. I finally feel that I am in good hands!
