Everything was outstanding. He was able to see me right away. He spent a very large amount of time with me to get an accurate diagnosis. Follow thru to the end was outstanding.

This was the first time seeing this Doctor. The Nurse was fantastic and had a lot of knowledge and explained many things before I saw the Doctor. Dr. Dreifke was very easy to talk to and he explained everything in "layman's" terms. I was very comfortable talking with both of them and plan on scheduling a procedure appointment.
