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.
