Patient Comments (5)

Having an MPN, i and others are always in search of a specialist. I have been to more than 1 Dr. That doesn't know how to properly treat an MPN, or even wants to learn more about updated treatments. Dr. Drinkard is that one person i have recommended to my support group.

I was referred to Dr. Drinkard for abnormal labs and I was very anxious to be seen by someone prior to the holidays. I was pleased that someone from his office contacted me right away and I was seen the next day!

Had my appointment with Dr Drinkard And will not be returning. He has the worst bedside manner, and totally condescending. Why did I even bother giving my health history? Not like he cared. I'll find another dr thanks but NO THANKS.

Dr. Drinkard saved my life. Confident, knowledgeable and thorough, he treated and coached me back to health. My path continues, but knowing he's there to help, makes a difference. I highly recommend him.

One of the worst doctors I have ever seen. He has no time to hear anything and simply wants to rush everything (except your waiting room time and his and his staff's response time when contacting the office). He is condescending and unconcerned to say the very least. Forget getting a response from...more
