Dr. Dreveskracht did a great job listening to what I wanted done, and her staff have been nothing but gold. Going into surgery, the team exuded competence, caring and a warm sense of humor. Check-ins have been regular, and Dr. Dreveskracht made sure I was able to contact her in case of emergency. My healing has been fast and uncomplicated, and results are everything I could have asked for.
I have consistently had excellent experiences when I come to this office. I have been a patient for 4 years and I count not recommend anybody more.
Working with this doctor and staff has been the most amazing experience I have had in my health experience. They are thoughtful, caring, concerned, supportive , attentive and always make time for my needs. I was just commenting to someone that I wish this office could serve as my PCP and that I definitely got more than my money’s worth from the preop to the procedure to the aftercare. They are phenomenal and I highly recommend them to anyone and everyone! So super pleased!
