I've been a patient of Dr. Drake for over 5 years. He is the most patient & kind person I've ever met. I am also a patient at MD Anderson, & I would rank Dr. Drake at the top over MDA (even though they're still great). EVERY TIME I go for my appointments he answers ALL my questions (I ask a lot). I honestly feel like we're all just a huge family. EVERYONE including the receptionists are always in a great mood & are happy to help. The surgeries I've had have gone smoothly.

I had a wonderful check up with Dr Drake today (4-27-17) my hero / angel. He was very kind and patient with me as usual. My report was very encouraging. Glad he's my specialist. Will refer him to anyone who needs his expertise. Love you Dr Drake. Thank God for sending me to you.

The only good thing about my diagnosis was being referred to Dr. Drake, April and the entire staff. The care, compassion, response and overall experience was fantastic from the beginning. He is so honest yet so caring. I couldn't have been in better hands. The entire staff is professional, caring and responsive. If you ever need a time in your life that is less stressful, visit this office. Your experience will be seamless, they all know their role and handle it seamlessly. God Bless Them

When I met him first time, he was nice. After the surgery, he was so mean. Terrible bed side manner. He was always too late and never said sorry. He has no passion for patients. He is arrogant and impolite. So is his nurse. I wish I hadn't met him.

Butchered my hysterectomy!

Dr. Drake is just wonderful. He performed major surgery to remove a large mass from my mom's abdomen which was thankfully not cancer. He takes his time with his patients and their families. He's lighthearted, makes you laugh and feel comfortable. My mom just loved him. And best of all she is healing very quickly. Even the nurses are amazed at her quick progress in spite of her surgeries being one of the 8th most painful surgeries to experience.
