Dr. Drahota removed my gall bladder recently. From the first consultation to the follow up, Dr. Drahota was very professional. He answered my questions and took time explaining the process to me. My surgery was very successful. I would recommend him to anyone. Staff was friendly and the office was very clean. I did not have to wait any time with my two office visits.

Dr. Drahota has operated on me in the past for removal of my gallbladder. It proved to be a very difficult case as I had a gallstone stuck in my common bile duct. I have no doubt that Dr. Drahota's supreme surgical skills are what got me through that difficult surgery and recovery. I recently saw him for a thrombosed hemorrhoid. He and his wonderful nurse made what could be a very embarrassing problem seem routine. They were very professional and caring. I trust Dr. Drahota 100%

Dr. Drahota is one of the most caring physicians I have ever felt with. Always taking time to understand the physical but also the mental side of care. He helped me and my family deal with an illness and operated with great results.

I have had a couple of procedures with Dr. Drahota and would recommend him to everyone. He has done some great work for me and always been ready to help when I have needed him. Having had over thirty surgeries, I have worked with a lot of different doctors and he is one of the best. He has done three surgeries with multiple procedures in each, should I need his help again. He will get my call!

i had my hernia repaired by him He did a great joob
in Overland Park, KS |
I was sent to Dr Drahota from the VA. He had me stay in the exam room for over an hour while he went to pick up his son at school. When he returned he only spent less than 5 minutes with me. I contacted the VA about his unprofessional practice. I requested the VA not send any more patients to him.
in Springfield, MO |
Very short with me as a patient. He screamed at the receptionists using profanity the morning of my surgery. I was regretting my decision to have surgery by him (gastric sleeve/hiatal hernia repair) after speaking with him. He did not allow anytime for me to ask questions. I was crying and felt very uncomfortable. After care at Blue Valley Surgical has also been poor. I highly regret going to this hospital in Overland Park. Keep looking. There's better choices out there for you!
