Patient Comments (2)

I went to Dr. Drygas about my lower back. We totally happy with him and his staff. We waited a long time as he read my MRI, etc. He spent a long time with us. Very through and honest. There was a 50/50 % chance surgery could help me. He was honest and said he would not operate on me as it could...more
