Crowder, OK |
The doctor LITERALLY only spent 2 minutes in the room with me and acted like I wasn’t worth his trouble since my back issues weren’t bad enough to need surgery and I wasn’t jumping on the idea of having injections in my spine! Also told me my back issues were from smoking! Forget the fact that I’ve had VERY physical jobs that required me to lift up to and sometimes exceeding 300 pounds multiple times a day for 10-16 hours per day for the last 8 years! He was very rude and snub nosed!

Staff is very professional, friendly, and run their office like a fine tuned machine using up to date methods. If you send them an e-mail it is handled in a timely manner. Dr Drake is an excellent listener and spends quality time reviewing MRI and X-rays. Detailed explanation's are one of his virtues. Only problem was; When I first visited him, he was almost famous; then, I went back two weeks later to schedule surgery and he "was" famous; so, must wait Seven weeks. Lol but it is worth it. :)

Excellent. Would recommend highly.
Tulsa, OK |
I had a pain level of 8 to 10 and woke up from surgery at 0! He was great and took time to listen and get to know me. He was also honest enough to say when he didnt think someone needed surgery as was the case with another family member. Last time I had a little trouble with my back, he suggested physical therapy instead of surgery. He also suggested losing weight and more exercise. He was right - it all worked great.

I'm glad to see other people have had great experience. I saw Dr. Drake after seeing such good reviews. I called to set up an appointment and the soonest I could see him was 2.5 weeks. (I was thinking, wow he must be good) He never heard a word I said. Told me he wanted a better MRI and the receptionist would set that up. The soonest was 3 weeks. I showed up today hoping for answers. The office told me I wasn't scheduled for a MRI but another consultation. Just a number here. Not using them.
