I couldn’t be more happy with Dr Drew. And I have never heard anything negative about him, from anybody. His reputation is spot on. His nursing staff are the best. Especially Cynthia. They go all out to fix any question that may arise. I will definitely recommend Dr Drew to anyone, in fact I already have.

Out of all the doctors I have dealt with this is by far the best professional doctor I come across. He is so compassionate about his patients. He is also a doctor that likes to explain all of his reason for his treatments for you. I would highly recommend this doctor to all that need a bone doctor.
