What People Say About Dr. Kathlyn Drexler, MD

I have seen Dr. Drexler a few times since my injury. I had previous surgeries with another orthopedic surgeon before being referred to her. I was able to be seen 2 days after the referral and scheduled for surgery 3 days after that. She is VERY good at de-escalating the situation when I have been frustrated with my injury. She also was the only one to a address and provide a solution for an elbow issue she had nothing to do with. Most compassionate surgeon I have ever met.

Carpal tunnel was diagnosed with an EMG and an NCT by a Neurologist several weeks ago. Dr. Drexler knows I get panic attacks in dr.'s offices, she was told. A couple tests were done. I didn't want her get angry with me if I didn't finish the testing, but I started to panic. The time Dr. Drexler spent with me was primarily a waste of my time. I'm seriously afraid of her now.I have to see her again in a 2 weeks. I wish I didn't. Very rude and condescending. I don't feel she was listening to me.
