Dr Drake is an amazing doctor. He is easy to talk to and was really encouraging and supportive. He recently performed a complete hysterectomy on me and I had minimal discomfort after this major surgery; I highly recommend him.

Dr. Drake and April were so supportive and caring. They took time with my husband and I to explain everything. You can tell they genuinely care by their actions.

Dr. Drake deserves a 5-star rating for his knowledge, skills as a surgeon and ability to help a patient through scary surgery and chemotherapy. I have extreme confidence in him and hope to use him again if I ever need. Good news is that after five years, I have no fear of having cancer again -- thanks to Doctor Drake.

I had my first appointment with Dr Drake today. I’ve been dealing with chronic debilitating issues due to pcos. From the moment I made my appointment his office staff treated me amazingly, to my appointment today being one of the best appointments I’ve had with any gynecologist. And I’ve been to my fair share of them probably 15 to be exact. I am confident he will get to the bottom of my problems and not just treat me like another fat girl making excuses for her weight. You can tell he loves his job and wants to help people. So thankful for my drs recommendation to see Dr Drake and many friends and family who also referred him!

Five years ago I was referred to a fantastic , highly skilled, and phenomenal hands on doctor. I’ve read some of the reviews and believe what these people tell you! He does not judge, but encourages one to take deep breaths, ask as many questions they need, and become the chief cheerleader and might I add, a doctor/friend. I also have to give kudos to his wonderful assistant, April. She creates the initial tone of the visit and one can see that Dr. D and she are a cancer fighting machine. He ma

Dr. Drake has been my oncologist for the past 3 1/2 years and I can tell you he is by far my favorite doctor. He will shoot you straight every single time and does it with compassion because he really cares about his patients. He will listen to your concerns and needs and never rush you. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Drake was my third choice of a doctor that was referred to me. When I met him I didn’t know what to expect but being that I was a nurse, I knew what I was up against. He saw my prior exams, examined me and told me what he found. He explained this to my son and made sure he understood. I had surgery and he kept me informed and updated.He was concerned and supported me in the decision I had to make. I thank God for a knowledgeable, concerned, excellent doctor that has human touch.He’s the BEST

I had the pleasure of meeting Dr.Drake a few years back in The Woodlands area. He is hands down the best surgeon I have ever met. Since I am having the same symptoms again I am going to make an appointment ASAP so he can hopefully tell me good news again ????
