Staff is apathetic and rude, phone calls go unanswered and they are unresponsive. I feel these people are literally putting my life at risk with their game playing. It’s really a shame because my experience with Dr. Draelos has been pleasant. The staff cancels my follow ups and reschedules me for months down the road. When I ask what I should do because I’m symptomatic, they say, I don’t know what to tell you. Really? I’m so frustrated. Do yourself a favor,go anywhere but here.

Never returns calls. Had my referral for weeks and never called to schedule me, even after me leaving message after message stating I was leaving town and needed issues resolved. This practice cannot keep their PAs for a reason....those people, like the patients calling deserve better. If I ever get my referral processed by Mercy to another location I will go there, but I never will go to this office.

Dr Drealos and staff are absolutely wonderful. Educating patients about illness and How best to take care of oneself.Thank you dr. Draelos and staff you've helped me tremendously to know , understand and treat my illness.

In the several years we've been to this office, we've seen Dr. Draelos once. The rest of the time we see his physician assistants. His PAs are nice, but overly concerned with test results rather than patient reported symptoms. The staff in the front office are incompetent, rude, and generally unpleasant. Many times, I've seen them talking amongst themselves then scowling or rolling their eyes when a patient comes up to the [closed] window. Do not go to this office.

The best endocrinologist clinic in Oklahoma if not America. I know a family who flies all the way from Alaska to see Dr. Draelos for their health needs. The staff is very caring and friendly and I was in the clinic recently and was able to get in and out faster than ever before. I would say the clinic has definitely improved since I've been there. And his PA and Nurse Practicioner are both top of the notch as well. Whatever they're doing, they're doing right.

I've had a handful of appointments with Dr. Draelos, and I never feel like he listens to me or pays attention to my case, which is very frustrating as a type 1 diabetic. I have seen about 4 different PAs that I have REALLY liked, but every time I start to feel comfortable with one of them, the next time I go they are no longer employed there. I have had some good experiences with some of their staff, but mostly have found them pushy, rude, and impatient.
