    How was your appointment with Dr. Drachtman?

    Sep 30, 2022
    My daughter was diagnosed with leukemia. Drachtman spent an hour with my daughter and I convincing us to bring her to Robert Wood Bristol Myer Squib for treatment. Once we were in he did not want to be bothered anymore. We switched doctors. Her name was April Sorrell who was fantastic and gave my daughter the upmost attention. Unfortunately she is no longer at Robert Wood. I was just trying to save my daughters life. I saw the dark side of health care. It’s a business. Drachtman didn’t care about my daughter. Unfortunately we lost our daughter. Dr. Kamen lead doctor actually came to the wake. To no surprise no response from Drachtman. I would never recommend him to anyone try to save their child.
