The absolute worst Dr I've come across in my entire life. Dr. George Drakes is very rude and unpleasant. He could care less about your pain and is obit about a dollar. The office never answer calls and the voice-mail is always full so its almost impossible to get questions answered or make appointments.

VERY caring person he was genuinely concerned with my recovery more than my returning appointment. I also appreciate that he wanted to take me off of the pain meds as quickly as possible he is a great doctor and a better person
