Doctor Drell, There is no story to share, just a thank you for being my doctor. It has been a long journey from office visits yearly to constant problems as I age. You have been there for me and I have learned a great deal from you. cand cared for. With your help I plan to stick around for a while which means I will see you in your office when the next problem arises. Let me not forget to mention your office staff. Cindy, Carina, and Maria are wonderful to deal with. They couldn't be better, and neither could you.

I would like to thank Steve Drell for being there for me when really needed. I am fortunate so far to not have frequent personal needs and when I do I get right in to see him, he gives me quality time and will even save me a trip to the ENT doctor if the wax needs cleaning in my ears! :-) What really made the difference was during my wife's last week or so with lung cancer. Her doctor was out of town and Steve stepped up and looked out for her (and me) even helping to get her a pass to get out of hospital for our son's wedding even though I don't think he was supposed to do it. He's compassionate, caring and I feel so grateful he's there for me. He's the best!

Dr.Drell has been our internist for over 40 years, so when he chose to join MDVIP, we went along with him. He always makes himself available. He is very knowledgeable and knows the right specialist to recommend when necessary. It is important to us, that we can have complete confidence in him. And besides all that he is very pleasant during our visits.

Cared for by Dr. Steven Drell and MDVIP is medicine the way I believe it should be practiced. Dr. Drell is always available to me whether I need an office visit or an answer to a question by phone. Office appointments are never rushed; I feel listened to and understood by Dr. Drell as well as the entire staff who are friendly and efficient. I feel comfortable and confident that they know me and want the best care for me. Dr. Drell and MDVIP have taken the worry out of heath care, I feel confident that any health problem that might come up will be dealt with with knowledge and efficiency. And that is what excellent health care is all about...peace of mind.

Dr. Drell has been my personal physician for 27 years to my complete satisfaction. He is never loathe to refer me to other physicians when needed (which is seldom as he can treat 95 of my medical needs) and is there for me 24 hours a day as needed, long before MDVIP. I respect him and he respects me and yet we maintain a cheerful and informal level of care that is mutually agreeable to us both. I consider myself very lucky to have come under the care of Dr. Drell so many years ago when I was a young woman.

I have been a patient of Dr. Drell's for about 30 years and have always felt like I was being well cared for. I can't count the number of times I have received a call over the weekend from Dr. Drell just to check in to make sure I was responding well to a medication or to give me the results of my blood test. Dr. Drell is in medicine for all the right reasons, and I appreciate that more than he will ever know! Well, now I hope he does.

Dr. Drell is a great Doctor. He is an incredible man and tries hard to keep me and my husband healthy. So far he is winning!! I wish that all people had a Doc like this Doctor. He DOES REALLY care about his patients and that is VERY important!! He is terrific, knows a LOT about Medicine and we really feel EXTREMELY comfortable having Dr. Steve on our side!!

Dr. Drell is the best. He coordinates and oversees all of my care. He treats all of me, not just my physical symptoms. He is interested in me as a whole person and spends all the time needed to know me well. He listens and pays attention to everything. He and his staff are incredible! They have seen me through some incredible situations. I don't know what I would do without them. I am 73 years old and look forward to continuing with Dr. Drell indefinitely.

Dr. Drell is an outstanding doctor. I can call him at anytime day or night. We can really discuss my problems and solve them. He makes me feel important as if I am his only patient. I love that guy.

Whenever I come into the office (and get an appointment immediately when needed), I know that Dr. Drell wants to hear the whole story which when translated means he wants to hear what my emotional state is, as well as my physical complaint. Growing up our family physician had this wonderful capacity, and I somehow thought it could never be duplicated again, but Dr. Drell has quashed that doubt. From the times of my cancer diagnosis, my parents' illnesses and eventual deaths (as they were also his patients), my husband's illnesses and our handling other family problems, he has always listened, helped to facilitate going to specialists and having other tests. He hears you and we know he cares. We are very fortunate!!

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.
