Dr Drelles is a fantastic pain management physician. I have personally known Dr Drelles for years, and I can honestly say he is a very intelligent, honest, and fantastic physician in his area of expertise. Recently, I was a patient of Dr Drelles' at Straith Hospital, after suffering a lower back injury to my L4/5 disc. Physical Therapy was unable to fix my issue, and my pain had further worsened over 8-10 week, and my muscles would begin spasming as well. After seeing Dr Drelles and reviewing my MRI with him, he believed I would benefit from a spinal injection. I was cautious at first to have the procedure, but he explained the Pros vs Cons to it, and it was clear to me that I was willing to put my trust in him. I had the procedure done, and within 2 days my back pain had gone from a 7/10, to a 0/10 and I was able to "carefully" resume my normal day-to-day activities. If you need a great doc for this type of issue, please do consider scheduling an appointment with Dr Drelles.

Dr.Drelles is a fine caring doctor, interested in your heath problems. However it is difficult to arrange an appointment. He is under-staffed. Every time I try calling his office I am put on hold sometime for 45 minutes!. I tried calling for an appointment today 1-2-17 and was told the office was closed! I was given no explanation! Why?

My medical case is not his typical pain management area of specialty. Yet he figured out the best plan and worked with me and made my life live able. He was at another practice when I started with him and I followed him to this practice. I travel 2 and a half hours to see him and it is worth it every time. He has am amazing bedside manners and it is truly a Dr for the patient not the money. I am thrilled to have him as my Dr. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs pain care.
