I think Dr. Drumm and her nurse are wonderful. They spend an appropriate amount of time with me, listen to my questions and provide clear answers, follow up immediately with referrals and prescriptions, and are basically extremely nice to deal with.

I couldn't be happier with Dr Drumm. She takes time to get to know me and she really listens. I would recommend her to anyone that needs a general doctor.

I just switched to Dr. Drumm as my primary care physician due to my previous doctor retiring and I couldn't be move happy to have my health care be monitored by Dr. Drumm. She was informative, gave great explanations/answers to my questions & obviously had become familiar with my health history. She listened intently to my questions & made me feel comfortable discussing my health issues with her. Overall, I am very glad that Dr. Drumm will be my PCP going forward and I know she will help me maintain my health as much as possible.

She is experienced, knowledgeable and up to date on training, but what makes her stand out above the rest is her dedication to her patients, the fact that she remembers details about our families, private concerns we have shared in the past, and is able to put all in perspective in treating us every time we see her. She is never too busy to listen, makes sure we have brought up all issues that are worrying us, and listens to our concerns about our families.
