I've been a patient of Dr. Dretler and the wound care center for 3 months. In that time they guided me through a very tenuous and scary time. Very professional and extremely caring.

Dr. Dretler and the Wound Care staff are phenomenal and I would highly recommend them. Due to a an infectious wound that I acquired from my surgery, I was referred to Dr. Dretler's office at the IDSL at Dekalb Medical. Despite his busy schedule, Dr. Dretler was able to see me that next day. I was a patient of Dr. Dretler at the IDSL & Wound Clinic since the end of August. He fully explains his treatment plan, answer all of your concerns and he's a true patient advocate. Thank you Dr. Dretler!

Dr. Dretler is the definition of a brilliant doctor. He saved my mother's life by identifying and properly treating her autoimmune disease. He really cares about his patients and he's always easy to understand when explaining the situation. We look forward to going to his office. The entire staff is helpful, professional and genuine. They deserve way more than 5 stars!

I have been a patient of Dr. Dretler's for 10 years. I just don't know where to begin. He has been the most amazing, tenacious man with the willingness to try everything it take to get the results you need. He continues to educate himself on the new treatments in his field of medicine. He is honest, professional and if you are looking for an doctor that will make you feel like you are his only patient he is the Doctor for you. I don't know how he does it but he is the Best of the Best .

Came back from India with a nasty infection. Dr. Dretler saw me on a day he doesn’t normally see patients. He had me admitted to the hospital, and came to see me every day with updates on the tests he was having them do. Once I was out he was proactive in making sure I had my follow-up appointment with him. I’d recommend him to anyone

Dr. Dretler impressed me with his bedside manor. He was very complete and thorough by personally listening to my heart and lungs, feeling my injured area, and initiating immediate treatment. He was very easy to interact with and very good at answering questions. Dr. Dretler texted a referral from his phone so that my next treatment could be expedited by one of his colleagues. I can personally recommend Dr. Dretler without reservation due to his knowledge, expertise and professionalism.

Dr Dretler has been a godsend to our family and the care of the wounds suffered by our son. He has been very effective in his care and very supportive through all the ups and downs. Our son has dealt with a plethora of doctors and Dr. Dretler is at the top of the list. We have already recommended him to others, even with much less severe issues.

Dr. Dretler is an incredible doctor! He takes the time to really listen to you and explains your medical options in terms you can understand. He is super intelligent, yet very humble. (He doesn't have a "god complex" if you know what I mean.) I highly recommend this doctor!
