Very personable. Ensured my comfort during the procedure. Very thorough pre-procedure.
Atlanta, GA |
The spinal epidural was relatively painless and, so far, has almost completely relieved me of the nerve pain that I've experienced over the past several months.
Decatur, GA |
Dr. Dreyer is fantastic! She pays 100% attention to the patient and listens to every word. She makes eye contact the whole time during the appointment and explained my test results in excellent detail. I felt absolutely comfortable asking questions and she answered thoughtfully, thoroughly, and with obvious great knowledge. She also very well understands insurance systems. I felt supported, and optimistic of a good recovery when I left today, thanks to Dr. Dreyer. I highly recommend her.
in Lovejoy, GA |
I strongly recommend Dr. Susan Dreyer at the Emory Orthopaedic and Spine Clinic in Atlanta, Georgia. I first consulted with her for my advanced osteoporosis and ensuing spinal discomfort. Dr. Dryer is professional, compassionate, and places emphasis on personal time with each patient. She has listened to my needs, recommended a protocol that aligns with my lifestyle and medical condition, and has always been available for me.
