Patient Comments (6)
in Winnetka, IL |
I strongly recommend Dr. Drapkin. I had severe, chronic sinus problems for over 10 years, and would be on antibiotics, nasal sprays, and other taking other medications via nebulizer. I was told by a lung specialist in the past that allergy shots would likely not help. Prior to seeing Dr. Drapkin two years ago I would be on antibiotics up to 5 times per year. I have been antiobiotic free for the past 1.5 years after sticking with Dr. Drapkins allergy shot recommendations.

Pretty impressed with Dr. Drapkin. Answered all of my questions. Very personable and able to connect with a young patient ( my daughter ). Would definitely recommend to others. I hope sooner than later he can treat my daughter's food allergies.

Dr.Drapkin is a very nice and professional doctor. We decided to see him for our two year old daughter who has asthma and couldn't get her asthma under control with her asthma action plan given by the NP @ pediatric office. Dr.Drapkin was able to get my daughters asthma under control which I cant even thank him enough for. He's very attentive and answers any question you may have for him. We also didn't have to wait long in the room for him either. I was very pleased with our experience with him
