Dr. Drygas performed two low back surgery on my husband when he was in stage four cancer. How could he not have known he was full of cancer resulting in his passing within six months of horrible back pain due to the surgeries back to back and advanced cancer. I hope he is never allowed to touch another human being or even an animal.

Dr Drygas changed my life. After suffering from horrific back pain for years. I was blessed to come across Dr Drygas. Within a few days after L4-L5 & Stenosis surgery, I already had relief from the shooting pain. Thanks Dr Drygas for giving me my life back.
