Patient Comments (2)
in New York, NY |
While two other doctors were quick to send me to the operating room, Dr. D suggested another option to manage and reduce the pain. I am forever grateful for actually changing my life.
in Long Island City, NY |
Dr. Drafts was the worst migraine doc I've been to. She was dismissive and rude, ignored me and what I was saying, and tried to prescribe medication I couldn't take (I have an ulcer; she claimed I didn't. My GE would disagree). Do not go to her!
