      Dr. Dreese is an excellent surgeon with a great bedside manner. His secretary, Brandi, was awesome as well. I'd recommend him to anyone I know who might be considering shoulder surgery.

      2 yrs/2 surgeries - 5 torn hamstring tendons and Dr Dreese is "the guy" to see for such an injury. No one in the area has the experience and results that he has in repairing this injury. The staff was incredible, Dr. Dreese did amazing work. Both surgeries were flawless, my pain was well managed and my post surgical treatment set me up for an easy recovery. My scars are very thin and very difficult to see. Dr. Dreese and his team makes a very difficult situation so much easier!

      Awful. Had arthroscopy. My knee looked like a basketball. Was totally infected. Not diagnosed for a month - five office visits later. Was given an immobilizer, Lidocaine patches, and Tramadol. At final office visit my husband demanded he drain my knee. I was rushed to the hospital, was there for 6 days, sent home with PIC line. Missed months of work. Had to have visiting nurse daily to administer drip medication and take blood. Thank goodness for Dr. Campbell, the infectious disease doctor.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
