Awesome doc. Diagnosed me with a GI cancer when my other docs did not even consider screening for it. He does expect you to do your part to heal and avoid re-occurrence. Really considerate and smart guy. I believe he is an MD PhD.

Dr. Dryden is the best gastroenterologist -- especially for complex cases. He saved my husband's life by catching an abscess many others missed and referring him to the best colorectal surgeon ever. Dr. Dryden greatly improved our son's ulcerative colitis using both standard treatments and miraculously effective over-the-counter treatment that he had clinically tested.
