Dr Joshua Drumm is an exceptional doctor. He explains well, takes time to listen to your questions, fully answers all questions, is kind and compassionate, one-of-a-kind doctor, who is the best doctor, by far, I have EVER been to, one I trust, admire, and respect. The healthcare world would be a better world if all doctors were like he is. I have referred my friends to him. I look forward to my visits with him because he is so special and a much loved doctor.

He failed to discuss MRI results. He refused to help me b/c I smoke. I had to convince him to at least provide some aid for my knee pain.

[...] Saw this dr. 1x. Didn't ask a question about the possible knee replacement that I need and was given a shot without ALL the info I needed to make a qualified decision to when I choose to have this surgery. If I had been given all the info, I would have possibly chosen to have this surgery earlier rather than later due to weather-related concerns. I can't ask the question if I am not the professional but the patient.

I would highly recommend Dr. Drumm. He was very caring, always listened to my concerns, and most importantly, I believe he is an excellent surgeon. When someone I know needs joint replacement surgery, I recommend Dr. Drumm to them. I had a friend get a second opinion from Dr. Drumm after my recommendation and she was also impressed with him.

While Dr. Drumm is a good surgeon, his reliance on statistical outcomes for the procedure that I had done (on an emergency basis) left me feeling uneasy and unassured that I was somewhere in the normal ranges of recovery. While I am interested in knowing what the possible complications might be, I would also like to know what his assessment is for my own situation. For example, I mentioned groin discomfort and he mentioned vascular necrosis as a possible cause. Does he suspect, on the basis of MY chart, that is a likely cause for the discomfort or is he simply "covering the bases." Also, talking about statistical mortality following the operation (hip pinning) just prior to entering the surgery was disconcerting. Had he mentioned that at my age (72) the statistical norms probably don't mean too much, that would have made me feel more at ease.

I followed Dr. D. from his practice in Omak, WA. He did such a great job that I wanted to keep him even if it meant traveling to Spokane. I had concerns about how I would handle recovery should I under go another surgery. He had some great ideas for me to make it possible.

Dr. Drumm was my surgeon for my first hip replacement and I followed him to Providence. I am extremely happy with Dr. Drumm and impressed with all staff at the clinic. They truly went over and above the call of duty to ensure proper scheduling and that all required information, labs, etc. were in place prior to this appointment.
