The visit was productive and informative. He identified all parts of my sports injury and answered all my questions regarding pre-surgery and post surgery rehab.
Dr. Dreese went over all the options with me, and took his time explaining things. He outlined a long-term game plan, which I found to be very helpful
He was very thorough and direct in his answers to my questions and very helpful when giving instructions on what to do next, including recommending a PT with specific exercises to address my issue.
Other than the wait to be seen, I was very pleased. The doctor never made me feel rushed and I'm sure would have answered any question posed fully until I completely understood it. I was quite impressed by the entire staff.
I was very impressed with Dr Dreese and felt very comfortable. I appreciate his bedside manner and clearly explained diagnosis. I would recommend him to others!
Too long a wait this time.
Dr. Dreese gave me the FULL information on my condition. He took the time to go through the X-rays and MRI of my knee and showed me where the problem was an what was causing my pain. The prognosis isn't very good but that certainly isn't his fault.
He was very nice and very knowledgable. I was comfortable the minute I walked in. The office staff was welcoming and freindly.
Dr Dreese explained everything, took additional X-rays and made a plan for treatment. I would recommend him to any of my family and friends.
Everything with the professional care was excellent. Some difficulty locating the office inside the shopping center. Front desk person was coughing and obviously was not well, leaving some concern for contagiousness.
Dr. Dreese was very professional and helpful! I would trust him with my family which is high praise.
He was kind, thorough with the exam, and explained his findings and plans to get me well again. I really liked him a lot.
