What I enjoy most about the work I do, are my relationships with patients and staff and the feeling that I am helping others to improve their health. Since entering medicine, my goal has been to increase access to high quality, caring, comprehensive and family-oriented care. My practice includes the full scope of family practice: obstetrics, pediatrics, adult medicine and geriatrics. I speak English, Spanish and Portugeuse. I am trained in and have experience in tropical medicine.

Patient Ratings and Comments
About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

Excellent doctor! Spent "extra" time responding to my questions. I never felt rushed or unimportant.

Our family absolutely LOVES Dr. Dresang. He is a fantastic doctor, he is very knowledgeable, provides you all of the options, recommends things but does not push you to do something and does a good job of explaining why you should do something if you are thinking you'd rather not. When I was pregnant i really wanted natural child birth experience and even when there were complications and I know it made Dr. Dresang nervous he went above & beyond to honor my birth plan while maintaining safety & health, I am not always into getting shots / un needed tests and he does a great job of understanding why I feel that way & then explaining why certain things are important. Like getting a flu shot. After he explained the low risk over high benefits I get one ever year for my entire family. We used to live 30 min from the office and then we moved to Ravensdale and it takes us almost 1.5hrs to get to the office but I'll never switch doctors. He is fantastic. I trust him. I truly feel we work together on my families health.

My physician spends more time on the computer then actually looking and talking to me.

[...] Solely because of the lack of time management, correspondence and flexibility of support staff.
