I am very lucky to have had Dr. Drew repair my torn rotator cuff. I cannot say enough about him or his staff. The hospital where the procedure was done was excellent also, the staff especially. Dr. Drew’s nurse, Shelly, is very kind and professional. I promise you your needs will be met and you will be very happy with the results.

Dr. Drew explained everything and more to me and my wife. He did not scare me, make me uncomfortable, or pressure me to have the surgery.

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.
