I am very happy and enthusiastic to share comments about Dr. Drell.

I am very happy and enthusiastic to share comments about Dr. Drell. I am fortunate at my age (Medicare covered) to have very few health issues and do not see the Dr. often, other than annual physical and few other occasions in past and current year. First, he must be complimented on Cindy Valdez his assistant who promptly responds to emails and answers or gets answers to many of my simple questions. When I do see the Dr. his bedside manner is the best off the handful of Dr.'s I have seen in my lifetime. He does not recommend doing tests and procedures unless they are absolutely required. When required he seeks the most cost effective way. When I call his # after hours I always get a cheerful (not the feeling I am bothering him) response. When I have had an urgency almost always get in within same day or 24 hours. On my scale of Dr. relationships, with 10 being the best experience you can have, I definitely rate him a 10. And, yes, feel free to quote me. Thank you Dr. Drell and Cindy. :-) PS. Regarding below MDVIP related questions, honestly I do not take advantage of MDVIP directly so hard to rate.
