    - Om Saif, 2020
  • "The staff, from front desk ladies, to nurses and of course providers, have cared for our special needs daughter since birth, she will soon be 16! They are exceptional with her & myself! I don't know what we are going to do when she turns 21, Dr. Dracker says he's going to keep her forever!"
    - Amy Weber, 2020
  • "All three of my boys go here, as well as my step daughter. They are AMAZING! I get responses right away, they know my children the minute we walk in. They are quick but efficient, they listen to you. If you don't like one provider - definitely ask to see another. Sometimes as a parent you just don't click with someone. I have seen every provider there, including Dr. Draker and everyone has been amazing. They hold a flu clinic so you can just go in and get your flu shot for your kids without having to spend a bunch of time there."

Dear Parents and Families,


I think it is fair to say that winter is finally over, despite an occasional freeze warning and erratic temperatures. Regardless, Mother’s Day usually represents a time of spring and fittingly a time of nature’s annual rebirth. A mother’s value cannot be understated, considering their essential importance for all of us. It is a day that we recognize a woman’s ability to bear children and to selflessly ensure the growth, development, and health of their children, through sacrifice, love, and commitment.


Mothers rarely ask for recognition but acknowledging their importance and significance by providing a simple hug, love and an expression of appreciation is invaluable to them. Through my daily experiences in the office, I can tell you that most mothers just want their children to be safe, healthy, and happy, regardless of their age. The unfortunate events in the Ukraine have illustrated the pain and suffering that women have endured in attempting to provide for the physical and emotional needs of their children. It has been a vivid reminder that mothers would sacrifice their own needs and lives for those of their children. I am hopeful that mothers throughout the world can somehow receive the recognition and support they deserve for their daily commitment. A simple hug and thank you on their special day can mean more than any gift. However, I know that they also appreciate a card, or being a queen for a day and pampered a little bit too!


I would also like to give you a follow up on my patient Evi, for which many of you have been so generous to. Evi went to Boston Children’s Hospital last Wednesday in preparation for her bone marrow transplant. She started her chemotherapy at that time following the surgical placement of her central venous catheter. This week she will be receiving her unrelated donor stem cells, collected from a matched, unrelated volunteer donor in Germany. She will require multiple blood and platelet transfusions until the donor marrow starts repopulating her bone marrow and produces her life saving red and white cells and platelets. During that period, she will be very susceptible to viral, bacterial, and fungal infections, which will require her to receive multiple drugs to prevent infections. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers and I will keep you updated on her condition.
Next week I will review a topic that many families have asked about, specifically the need for daily vitamins and supplements and dietary guidelines. I also want to make sure that you are familiar with a series of articles which are published by Forbes Health, that I have the privilege of assisting with some editorial reviews.

Please let us know if there are any other subjects that we can review for you. I hope all of our mothers have a wonderful Mother’s Day

Sincerely, 

Dr. Dracker

Please know that when you call our office it is our goal to help you the best that we can. Sometimes, there can be stumbling blocks and matters that may not be ideal. We are working hard to make sure our patients get the care they need with the utmost respect and urgency. Please as you call in or visit, know we are busy this time of year and sometimes we might not be able to help as quickly as we would have previously. We understand your frustrations during these times, but ask that you treat us just as you would want your family to be treated. Yelling, verbal abuse, vulgar language is not called for and will not be tolerated. We thank you all for your continued support and look forward to helping you all through this year and hopefully into a brighter 2022. If you have any questions or concerns, you are more than welcome to contact me here.
