Specialties

Dr. Donald L Drennon has the following 1 specialty

  • Anesthesiology

    Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
    Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
    Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.

Dr. Drennon

Dr. Drennon was awesome he has the best bed side manner, he is very compassionate and caring. I wanted to address his office staff they were extremely helpful they told me how to get my claim paid so that I would not have any of pocket expense, I can not say that any other provider has done that for me due to the number of procedures I have had done.

Great Doctor/ Terrible Office Staff (billing nigthmare)

Beware. While Dr. Drennon is a great doctor, you will not like the way you are treated by his billing office. See YELP and comments about Angela under Medical Resource Management. Angela hung up on me and my insurance company twice. I would love to contact the Dr. to let him know but it is impossible to reach him without talking to Angela. I did complain to my surgeon and was told I am not the first to do so. I really hope Dr. D learns about how his patients are treated so he can make changes. I hope to not have another surgery, but if I do will never schedule with him again as I do not want to be treated this way by his office. He's a nice man and I think would be horrified to hear the conversation I had with someone representing him.

Awesome Doctor

As you know, with surgery, you rarely spend much time with the anesthesiologist - they are there - you are just not aware!!! I remember him talking to me - he even sat beside me for the longest time - and then of course you are out! I felt such a comfort from his care and everything went great!
