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 make me worse. I am going over to him to hopefully schedule small incision neck surgery this week. We live in The Villages but I am from Clearwater and trust Dr. Drygas.
