16/06/13 5 5 5 5 After having significant pain in my lower back for a year I was finally referred to Dr.Drew by a NHL doctor,- i knew with a good referal like that Dr.Drew would be amazing. i knew I was in good hands after meeting with Dr.Drew he answered all my questions and explained exactly what would happen on the day of surgery. I saw him prior to going into the OR and I was told I would not see him after surgery until my follow up in 2 weeks, although I was out of it Dr.Drew made a point of seeing me after surgery and went and spoke with my family to let them know everything had gone perfect. Due to my bulging disc I had significant leg pain, immidiently after surgery I noticed that pain was gone! I have been recovering for just over 2 weeks now and I already feeling amazing. Dr.Drew saved myself, I am 23 years old and my life was at a stand as I was in so much pain and could not do anything with out having pain. Thank you Dr.Drew you gave me my life back! Best Dr. Hands down!

23/01/12 5 5 5 5 I have met with Dr. Drew twice now to discuss the possibility of a spinal fusion. He gave us all of the details about the surgery, postop care, rehab, etc. He answered all of our questions patiently on both visits. Very down to earth and after our two visits I have a great deal of confidence in his skills as a specialized spinal surgeon. I only wish the wait times were not quite as long but that is not a fault accredited to Dr. Drew.  Respond

25/11/11 5 5 5 5 As medical specialists go, Dr. Drew is top nothch. As people go, he's got a wonderful personality. I'm on the surgical list, and though I can't comment on that outcome yet, I will say that Dr. Drew goes above and beyond to explain things. He takes the time to actually talk TO you, and listen, without rushing at all. That's a quality that is very difficult to find in a Dr., especially a specialist.  Respond

31/03/11 5 5 5 5 I highly recommend Dr. Drew. He is kind, professional and very knowledgable. He answered every single one of my questions and explained things to me in a way that I could understand. i was frustrated and in a lot of pain when I was referred to him. Having seen other specialists by this point I very skeptical that anything could be done. Dr. Drew provided me with the best and least invasive treatment option. I can't put into words how grateful I am for his help. In addition to the Doc's great bedside manner, Trish (admin assistant) is also a kind and wonderful person. If you have the priveledge of being able to see Dr. Drew - I highly recommend you see him first. He's fantastic. (and I agree with one of the previous comments - he's also a very handsome Dr. too)  Respond

31/01/11 5 5 5 5 I was being followed as a possible candidate for a discectomy when I ended up needing emergency surgery. He saw me in his clinic immediately and was operating on me just a few hours later. I had better than normal results with no residual leg/back pain, which i'm sure is a testament to his skill. But above all else, he is a patient, kind man who put a young woman who was just told she needed emergency surgery at ease. I felt very lucky to have him as my surgeon.  Respond

14/07/10 4 5 5 5 When I first saw Dr. Drew, I was in so much pain that I could not function normally. Couldn't stand, sit, walk, even sleep. I was a mess. My family doc. was against me having this surgery and instead, was prescribing me pain pills like they were candy. Had surgery with Dr. Drew and felt instant relief. Never took one pain pill following surgury. Dr. Drew is extremely skilled and knowlegable. He's also very down to earth and easy to talk to - not pretentious at all. I would highly recommend him.  Respond
