Dr. Dreifke is an excellent provider. He had an excellent bedside manner with me, answered my questions, and treated me with respect. He listened to my concerns, and gave me options- which isn’t something many MDs do these days. He treated my difficult skin issue and provided insight to some other issues I was experiencing. I trust his judgement, and will continue to get my checkups here

Dr. Dreifke is a caring and dedicated dermatologist. He provided my daughter with easy to understand explanation about her current skin issue. He offered her a couple options for treatment and asked if she had questions. Great service overall.

We like Dr. Dreifke. He interacts well with my teenagers. He takes time to listen and will customize the treatment plan to accommodate any concerns. I’m impressed with how much time he spends listening and explaining. He’s essentially everything we look for in a doctor; knowledgable with excellent bedside manner.
