Patient Testimonials

Dr. Drury is one of the best doctors I’ve had to see. He done 2 hips surgeries on me, (one on each hip), and explained why I needed it, what he was going to do, and what I could expect. He answered all of my many questions and never made me feel dumb for asking. If I didn’t understand something He took the time to explain it until I did. I never felt like a number but a an actual person with an issue that needed help and he really cares about his patients.
