    Dr. Drillings has been caring for our entire family for almost 20 years, treating a variety of problems including a rotator cuff injury, two occurrences of torn meniscus, soft tissue damage in athletic activities, etc. His approach is concervative, i. e. strengthening exercises and physical therapy first before resorting to surgical intervention. We could not have wished for a better doctor.

    I found Doctor Drillings very professional and did not mind explaining things. Very good bedside manner. Having said this the receptionist at the front desk was highly rude and unprofessional. Someone needs to give her a lesson on how to speak with people. Horrible feeling when a person like this starts off your visit at the doctors.

    I would recommend Dr Drillings to anyone needing orthopedic treatment. He is knowledgeable, listens to patient concerns and his staff is great. They got me in quickly, scheduled surgery to repair my injury and had me back to 100 percent in no time. See him if you want professional treatment from the best.

    Dr. Drillings replaced my sister's hip joint. Without careful pre-op evaluation he replaced it with a piece that elongated the length almost an inch longer than her non-surgical leg. . . She is limited to a selection of $$$ expensive ugly shoes that must be altered (like Herman Munster) by a specialty shoe shop to have lifts added $$$ to her natural leg shoe. She must use a cane. Her health has been affected and she suffers daily. BE WARE!

    I have been to Dr. Drillings' office 2 times in the past 6 months. Each time I was there, I found him to be very rude and dismissive. I did not feel he was really listening to me. He spent more time typing in his notes than actually examining me and trying to understand my concerns.

    I saw Dr Drillings as a follow up visit on some bone fractures from an accident. If there is nothing good to say about this man. He was rude to me and treated me like I was stupid for even being there. His staff was even ruder and more unprofessional than he was. I've never experienced a worse doctor office visit. I would NOT recommend him to anyone. The kicker was the non-refillable pain killer prescription he gave me was not enough to last through me through one week of time.

    The doctor is good except for the staff who is highly unprofessional in their conduct with the patients. I had a very bad experience today when I wanted to pay the billed amount using my HSA account and I was denied rudely and was bullied to make the payment right away. The woman at the register was yelling at me and feeling threatened I had to give away my visa card to swipe otherwise they wouldn't let me leave the office. This was very unprofessional behavior. Please be safe everybody.
