Dr. Dresher saw me on a Thursday for the first time. His scheduling assistant was able to fit me in on Thursday, which was much appreciated since it was Wednesday afternoon when I called! Dr. Dresher provided a comprehensive overview of what I can expect for surgery as well as the option of non-surgical treatment and he left no stone unturned. He did not feel rushed nor did I. He assured all of my questions were answered. He helped me to feel comfortable with the option of surgery. He reviewed the recovery expectations as well. When I asked when I could get in for surgery, he indicated he had an opening the very next day. Not only was he thorough in his approach he was also thorough in the delivery of surgery. He continues to be very supportive and I cannot ask for a better care postop as well. I sincerely appreciate his service and will definitely recommend him for anyone needing ortho care. Thank you Dr. Dresher, sincerely. Top notch! ??????

He cares about us as a person
My second surgery on my toes, he has been giving me quarterly injections, but it was time for surgery. He doesn’t force his opinion, he shares his advice where we both agree. Kristina is a fantastic medical assistant. (I tried to give her five stars, technical issues). Each visit over the years has been great, despite needles in my toes! I completely trust them. When he asks questions, my reply is “you’re the doctor, you can decide for me”. My trust in him is complete. Always in a very positive mood, despite working through his lunch breaks to help his patients.

Great experience!
The staff at Colorado Springs Orthopedic Group is terrific. Dr. Brad Dresher is one of the kindest professionals I've ever met. He was easy to connect with and his demeanor set me at ease. He took his time to explain my treatment options and made me feel that my concerns were important. I would highly recommend Dr. Brad Dresher and the staff at CSOG.

Waited too long
I had an appointment for 10:30, arrived at 10:15 for check in and was put into an examination room by 10:25. Waited till 11:00 and still no doctor so I left. Didn’t receive a call to reschedule or an explanation. Took off time from work to make the appointment. Very disappointing.

I’ve had chronic knee pain for years and have been told by other providers there is nothing they can do to help ease my pain. I started seeing Dr. Drescher several years ago. He reviewed X-rays and developed a plan to alleviate the pain. He is a wonderful and compassionate Doctor who listens to the needs of his patients. Since being treated by Dr. Drescher, I have better mobility and a more positive outlook on my health. Just not enough words for how much I appreciate his professionalism and dedication to providing excellent service to his patients!

Fantastic orthopedic doctor and conservative.
I jumped to avoid being hit with a falling object. My right calf began to ache and immediately started swelling. I called the next morning and was able to get in that same day. Dr Dresher took x-rays and ordered an ultrasound and MRI the same day. The results was a class 3 tear of my solius muscle. He ordered a walking boot and started me on the road to recovery. He took time to explain the muscle and the healing process.

Have seen Dr. Dresher for 3 years. He thinks he is a real comedian. I ruptured my Achilles’ tendon. He informed me I would never be Kobe Bryant (may he rest in peace). Duh, I am 5’9” and weigh 210 lbs. He is a good attentive physician. I would recommend him.
