DR DRAKE , BEST DOCTOR I EVER HAD. I AM A 71 YEAR OLD MAN AND HAVE SEEN MANY DOCTORS IN MY DAY. NO ONE IS MORE PROFESSIONAL, MORE CARING, OR MORE IN TOUCH WITH MY MEDICAL NEEDS THEN DR DRAKE. HE SAVED MY LIFE!

I recently had facial lesions removed by Dr. Drake which required stitches, they have healed nicely leaving no scars. I couldn't have been more pleased with the results and the care given to me by Dr. Drake and his assistant.

HE SHOWS COMPASSION AND UNDERSTANDING TO ONES NEEDS AND IS VERY PATIENT TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTIONS. HIS STAFF IS PROFESSIONAL AND FRIENDLY. THEY MAKE YOU FEEL LIKE FAMILY. THE STAFF RETURNS CALLS IN A TIMELY MANOR, AND IS NEVER RUSHING YOU OFF THE PHONE. I RECOMEND DR DRAKE TO ALL MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS.

I CAN'T SING DR. DRAKE'S PRAISES HIGH ENOUGH!!!! I HAD MY FIRST VISIT WITH HIM AND HE WAS KIND, COMPASSIONATE, AND KNOWLEDGEABLE. I'VE BEEN SUFFERING FOR SO MANY YEARS, SEEN SO MANY ENT'S, AND HAD MULTPLE FAILED TREATMENTS. DR. DRAKE ACCURATELY DIAGNOSED MY CONDITION AND TREATED IT QUICKLY AND APPROPRIATELY. FINALLY, NO MORE SUFFERING!!! I TRUST NO OTHER ENT, DR. DRAKE, CERTAINLY KNOWS WHAT HE'S DOING.

DR. DRAKE MIGHT BE A DOOF DOCTOR, BUT HIS OFFICE IS RUN BY ZOMBIES...I had to wait 5 weeks for my appointment.. ONE DAY BEFORE my appointment someone from his office is calling me "Your appointment is tomorrow, but I am not sure if we take your insurance". I said "Excuse me, when I called to make an appointment, you told me that you do take our insurance." She goes" It is not my problem - you have to verify yourself"

I went to Dr. Drake with a very serious issue about 4 years ago. He listens!! He was the first doctor I had that actually sat and asked good questions and listened to the answer. Now, I know what a true physician is and I won't settle for less!! He is fantastic!
