Patient Comments (4)
Carlsbad, CA |
I think she's very smart and a perfectionist but I have had two less than successful bunion surgeries with her in a year. Her assistant does most of the work and the doctor leaves town for 3 weeks all the time. I felt I was dismissed and left cold. First bunion and hammertoe surgery failed; she agreed to do a revision but neglected to fix the hammertoe that came back. Also shaved too much off my bunionette so my little toe sticks up. Bunion is fixed. I would say look further.

I have been a patient of her's for over 20 years. Recently, she performed a major "custom" foot surgery, which is recovering well. During this time, I have also seen numerous other foot surgeons, which allows me to compare surgeons. I found that she balances caution with the desire to obtain the best outcome. Her frank advice and willingness to consider treatment options is appreciated. Many surgeons are eager to operate, but only a few are thoughtful and experienced enough to do it right.

I July, I meet with Dreeben for a second opinion after ankle dislocation and reconstructive surgery. I sill had issues with my range of motion. The DR manged to insult me within the first five minutes, was not prepared for the meeting, never touch or maneuvered my foot and offered only, "Well, you are getting older" along with a recommendation to buy insoles for my shoes. I sought another doctor. He discovered two bone fragments and did surgery in Oct. I hiked Cowles Mnt 30 days later

I cannot include my experience, too wordy, but will say that she was completely incompetent and unobservant to what was going on with a custom brace while treating my torn Achilles tendon. She is not a people person, nor hands on. I don't think she touched my foot once, even with gloves on. I have informed all doctors and physical therapists that I come in contact with to avoid recommending her -- in fact, warn the patients not to see her.
