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

Awesome bedside manner. I was uncomfortable with my condition and he set me at ease. He was also able to get me in for surgery quickly since I had already been off work two weeks. Though something went awry with the day of surgery scheduling and I was left waiting 3 more hours to go in, he couldn't have been more apologetic to my wife and I. He is a wonderful physician and surgeon, most of all a compassionate person. We need more doctors like him.
