Dr. Drake is an amazing doctor. She is so caring and really takes her time with her patients. She explains everything thoroughly in a way someone not familiar with the medical field would understand. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for the best Ob/Gyn!!!

Dr. Drake saw me immediately after not much was done when I went to Urgent Care. She was very thorough with her questionnaire regarding my own health history and my family history. I really appreciated the fact that she told me everything that was going on as she did my ultrasound. She is very knowledgeable, gentle, and honest. There is no better OB in Santa Barbara. The office staff is also very quick to answer, prompt, and courteous.
