I was having serious issues in the “exit only” orifice. An ER physician at St Mary Mercy squeezed the hemorrhoid putting me in agonizing pain and he didn’t even give me any pain meds. I cried my eyes out with my wife holding my head and hand. Dr Drelichman got me in relatively quickly to get it removed. Recovery took a week(ish). But it was worth it. Two years later, no recurrence and I cannot thank him enough for his skill and compassion considering the sensitivity of the subject

I'm not sure if this will ever get back to Dr. Drelichman. I wanted to leave a review and tell everyone about how great of a surgeon he is! In 2009, I was 23 years old, scared to death and fighting for my life from a very sick mega colon. He worked a miracle on me saved my life! August will be 10 years since my ileostomy surgery and I am blessed to still be able to write this today! I wanted to thank him again! I was at UAB for over a month after surgery in ICU from pneumonia after surgery. I hope this gets to him! Heart felt thank you again Dr. Drelichman! Jason Walsh, ileostomy.

My experience was very good. He listened to me and seemed to genuinely care about finding answers about what is causing my pain. His staff was very competent and and personable. They had a very friendly and caring attitude.

Had a colonoscopy to rule out recurrent colorectal surgery almost 2 weeks ago and have yet to have him call with the results even though he said he would call within 2 days and that he was highly suspicious of recurrence. They are terrible at Providence. No one returns phone calls or follows up. Don't go there!

My experience during my office visit with Dr Drelichman was excellent! He took the time to explain everything and answer all my questions; he also gave me the reassurance I needed so that I no longer had a fear of moving forward with a procedure.

I would have to write pages to say everything good I could about this man. He is by far the best doctor I've ever dealt with and I have seen far too many with my health issues over the past 10 years. His knowledge, the way he explains things, his bedside manner, his availability when you need to reach him after hours....it's all top notch. I refer everyone to Dr. Dre and call him an angel because I believe he is. He cares. I believe he saved my life. Brandi Lindvall, j pouch, UC
