Would not recommend anyone to see Dr. Dripchak. His bedside manner is terrible. He just has the tendency to think you should know how to take care of your injury once he sees you. Not a hands on doctor, sits in the chair and ask a few questions and then gives you his diagnosis without looking at your injury.

He has been wonderful. I was involved in an accident and the end result was a broken foot. Last week was my first appointment and the time and care and his bedside manner was excellent. I felt at ease at my appointment and he made it a point to ensure I smiled during my visit.

I do not like going to the Dr but going to see Dr Dripchak made my visit actually enjoyable! He put my mind at ease and he gives you a chance to ask questions. I would totally recommend Dr Dripchak! The best Dr I've been to!!!

Dripchak has horrible bedside manners, very cocky. Also needs to his hearing checked as he doesnt listen or just cant hear the patients. I explained to him more than once during my office visits with him and he refused to listen to what i needed to have done. He only wanted to do what he wanted to do. I have since gone to a better doctor, one that listens and i am happy to report i am walking without a limp and no pain! Check around before settling with Dripch

My husband saw Dr. Dripchak over 3 months for a broken bone in his foot. We trusted and liked Dr. Dripchak. He was very knowledgeable, professional, thorough, and personable. He gave reasons that we understood for every aspect of his treatment, yet did not talk down to us. He has a very pleasant demeanor and a great sense of humor. We actually enjoyed my husband's appointments with him. We recommend him highly.
