Dr. Alison and nurse was great. Specially for my son he gets scared from hospital and doctors but the visit was great. Except that whole point going to hospital in such time was to get his shot.

July 20, 2020 2:06 PM

Dr. Drumm is great. She asks the right questions and is a great listener as well. We have a collaborative relationship. The front desk people leave a lot to be desired

July 13, 2020 1:21 PM

Always follows up with me about tests

July 6, 2020 6:35 AM

Dr. Drumm has always been good with me. Recent events, she has guided me to the proper care professional.

July 2, 2020 12:00 AM

Appreciate the genuine compassion, courtesy & professionalism from front desk, to Lab - All through!

July 2, 2020 12:00 AM

Very well done!

June 22, 2020 2:24 PM

Dr. Drumm and her staff are always professional, take time to listen to what I have to say

June 8, 2020 8:13 PM

This was an online visit with Dr. Drumm. We had trouble making the connection. The visit was very good. She was very tuned in to my needs and questions.

May 28, 2020 2:02 PM

Dr. Drumm is an excellent general practitioner. Always listens and he good reposes to the questions I ask.

May 28, 2020 2:02 PM

The phone experience was good but will never replace a face to face visit with Dr. Drumm.

May 11, 2020 8:55 AM

Dr. Drumm & the office staff have always been both professional, thorough, and caring!

May 9, 2020 1:02 PM

She was very pleasant and professional. I was very comfortable with her.

May 9, 2020 1:02 PM

The survey was a little difficult and may be misleading because this was my first time with this doctor and due to the virus, it was by phone and was checking on a minor problem. All in all, I was very satisfied with her and look forward to actually meeting her.

April 30, 2020 9:19 AM

This was an appointment during COVID-19 isolation - the visit was changed from in-person to over the phone. All was fine - happy to do it over the phone to keep everyone safe!

April 30, 2020 9:19 AM

All good!

March 23, 2020 2:00 PM

Nice people. Discuss everything and always ask how you are doing.

March 23, 2020 2:00 PM

Always good experience.

February 22, 2020 10:52 AM

"bedside manner" was fine. wellness care was disappointing. She would not give me a flu shot because she thought it was a live vaccine and contraindicated due to immunosuppressant medication, even though it was recommended by the Rheumatologist. I haven't had a mammogram in over a year, but she did not ask or order one. she failed to order a refill for medication requested, and did not order any blood work which my previous physician required every 6 months prior to refilling my blood pressure medications.

February 17, 2020 2:20 PM

always pleasant

February 4, 2020 12:36 PM

The last 2 times I was in this office they failed to check me in so I was left in the waiting room for 45 minutes +!

January 27, 2020 5:39 PM

Dr. Drumm is very professional and helpful. She listens and provides sound advice. I have complete confidence in her ability and skill

January 27, 2020 5:39 PM

Good experience all around

January 20, 2020 6:09 PM

I have a lot of respect for Dr. Drumm. I am soo happy that I found her to be my general practictioner. She's straight forward and answers all questions. Thank you Dr. Drumm!

January 15, 2020 1:11 PM

Dr. Drumm has always (including this visit) helped me live a healthy life. By far as always, Dr. Drumm helps me remain informed in life, so as to understand my health challenges, new, ideas, so I can be my own best advocate.

January 15, 2020 1:11 PM

Having a female exam is NEVER fun. Dr. Drumm is sensitive to me. I lost my mom when she was 59, to ovarian cancer; Dr. Drumm keeps me informed about current testing/screening, so I may be healthier and stay current on screenings.

January 7, 2020 7:53 AM

This was my first time meeting Dr. Drumm. She made me feel very comfortable during my visit and took the time to ask questions and answer my concerns.

January 3, 2020 10:10 AM

Dr. Drumm is a fantastic doctor & person.

January 3, 2020 9:49 AM

I have always been very satisfied with the care and attention that I have received.

January 3, 2020 9:49 AM

I only come to see my doctor once a year for my annual check-up and I thank God for that. Every time I see them, they always treated me well and I am very pleased with my experience at their office/clinic.

December 28, 2019 12:51 PM

I have been going to Dr. Drumm for years and she is very good.

December 28, 2019 12:51 PM

I always have a good experience

December 26, 2019 9:25 AM

This was my first visit with this doctor and physicians office and I was very satisfied.

December 12, 2019 12:53 PM

Even though Dr. Drumm was running late, she took all the time needed to listen to me and provide a thorough check-up. It was rushed, but we covered everything, so I was pleased!

December 11, 2019 11:05 AM

Dr Drumm always listens to me and explains things so I understand

November 21, 2019 1:36 PM

I appreciate the fast results for blood tests and follow-up phone call.

November 3, 2019 6:00 PM

Alison Drumm always provides excellent medical service - respectful, knowledgeable and concerned.

October 31, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Drumm has always been caring and concerned about not only my current health, but my longer term health. Her, and her assistant, nurse X, take great care of me!

October 25, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr Drumm is kind and professional and I feel well taken care of

October 7, 2019 7:00 PM

I do like my doctor very much she seemed very caring and great bedside manner and I feel very comfortable with her I felt like I can talk to her about anything and didn't have to feel uncomfortable about anything

October 5, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Drumm and the staff were kind, thoughtful, and understanding.

October 4, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Drumm has been my provider for over 30 years. She's the only Dr. that has managed to get my migraines under control!

September 29, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Drumm was very "tuned in" to what I told her. She met my expectations for care.

September 29, 2019 7:00 PM

professional. answered all questions

September 22, 2019 7:00 PM

Great experience. Saw me. Got my shots. Got examined. All good.

September 18, 2019 7:00 PM

It was my first time seeing Alison, and she made it very comfortable. She is very easy to talk to.

September 15, 2019 7:00 PM

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.

September 15, 2019 7:00 PM

My experiences with Dr. Drumm's office and the Heart Transplant Team at Christ Hospital (I am a heart transplant patient) have been very good. I would recommend both highly!

September 8, 2019 7:00 PM

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.

August 28, 2019 7:00 PM

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.

August 28, 2019 7:00 PM

Very satisfied with visit & treatment.

August 4, 2019 7:00 PM

Only concern was amount of time it took doctor to come into room for apptmt. We wanted almost 20 mins. between when nurse completed intake and doctor came in. Had first apptmt. of the day.

August 2, 2019 7:00 PM

I am a new patient. I feel confident in MD,. just don't know her or her style yet. Also, still need to get some prescription straightened out.

July 28, 2019 7:00 PM

Always friendly, on-time, and helpful.

July 28, 2019 7:00 PM

I value Dr. Drumm she has ALWAYS been considerate and understanding for my concerns. Thanks is not enough.

July 28, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr Drumm listens to my concerns, answers my questions, and helps me access the specialist care I need to stay in good health.

July 26, 2019 7:00 PM

my doctor checked blood test results, adjusted the dosage of one. she administered an ECG, consulted with specialist, and ordered the appropriate test. I think I got the proper attention.

July 21, 2019 7:00 PM


July 15, 2019 7:00 PM

Appreciate the personnel & professional combination shown.

July 7, 2019 7:00 PM

My eye surgeon recommended that I get a general checkup before surgery. I picked Dr. Drumm based on location and favorable comments. she was most helpful since I had not seen a doctor in years

July 5, 2019 7:00 PM

Very professional and caring.

June 23, 2019 7:00 PM

April 21, 2019 7:00 PM

I always feel secure with talking to Dr. Drumm and her Nurse. They listen and do their best to understand and help me. This visit was no different.

April 15, 2019 7:00 PM

I waited 1/2 hour past my appt. time. I also told her some concerns and was told my previous blood work didn't show anything. Well my concerns were present - depressed, chest pain.

April 15, 2019 7:00 PM

I love Dr. Drumm - she is friendly, understanding and helpful.

March 10, 2019 7:00 PM

Alison Drumm was incredible. It was the 1st time in a long time I felt comfortable at a doctor office. I am glad she's my primary.

March 10, 2019 7:00 PM

This was the first time seeing Dr. Drumm, I do like her

February 24, 2019 6:00 PM

I was the first appointment and waited almost half an hour for my provider. It was hard to get a hold of the office for follow up of my lab results. I asked that they leave a message with the details of the lab results, and they would not do so.

January 29, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr Drumm is an excellent doctor. She is calm and puts me at ease on any concerns. She is a good listener

January 29, 2019 6:00 PM

Feel very comfortable with my provider & I trust her

January 28, 2019 6:00 PM

It was a bit longer than usual because it was the first day switching to a new system. Everyone seemed to be a bit unnerved about it.

January 27, 2019 6:00 PM

they squeezed me in and the doctor was first class. This whole group is excellent

January 24, 2019 6:00 PM

dr. drumm is what a doctor should be. knowledgeable, calm and a regular person, not intimidating or arrogant.

January 24, 2019 6:00 PM

Best doc ever. Glad I found her.

January 13, 2019 6:00 PM

I had an excellent first visit with Dr Drumm. She was very patient and kind as we went over my medical history. The nurse X was also wonderful as well. I felt very comfortable during my visit. I did have to wait quite awhile but I was informed when I checked in that they were using a new system.

December 6, 2018 6:00 PM

Pleasant and reassuring.

November 25, 2018 6:00 PM

These people are pros and very compassionate! They have always had my best interests at heart!!

November 19, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr. Drumm is the best primary physician I've ever had! I did not feel rushed and she was great at answering my questions.

November 2, 2018 7:00 PM

Great service from Dr. Drumm Explained everything clearly.

October 21, 2018 7:00 PM

September 28, 2018 7:00 PM

The provider was very helpful during the visit! She answered my questions, listened to my concerns, and provided me with the resources I need for other specialties.

It was very good.

September 23, 2018 7:00 PM

September 2, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Drumm was very helpful & kind during my recent visit. She listened to what I had to say & made me feel comfortable.

August 9, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Drumm is an outstanding doctor. She is brilliant, caring and always makes me feel better. I have told many people she is the doctor to see.

August 6, 2018 7:00 PM

my yearly check up I was very satisfied with the way I was treated.

August 3, 2018 7:00 PM

Very good! I haven't seen a doctor who had the time to spend wme in a long while. The last doctor I tried left me in the waiting room (as did staff) for 50 minutes. I dressed and was home before they realized they had forgotten me. So this was a wonderful experience!

July 29, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Drumm was kind, friendly, and very attentive to my needs and concerns.

June 24, 2018 7:00 PM

i consider myself lucky to be Dr. Drumm's patient. She is attentive, respectful and mindful of my opinion. i receive explanations of what I need to know, I trust her recommendations. I would also commend her assistant X, who always returns my calls and patiently reviews certain situations, like the order and times to take newly prescribed meds. I started two new ones, so she was there for me to make the right decisions. I am also very grateful to X at option 4 for what she does sometimes when I need an urgent referral. she is amazing.

June 14, 2018 7:00 PM

I absolutely loved Dr. Drumm. She is an exceptional MD with great bedside manor. Sat with me for a long time and answered/addressed every question and concern I had. I would definitely recommend her to my peers.
