How we began
In 1949, Dr. Robert Drisko, Sr. and Dr. Fee had just returned from the war where Dr. Fee had been a bomber mechanic. Before he left the service, he had finished medical school and started a family practice. Dr. Drisko and Dr. Fee teamed up and established an orthopaedic group to serve the greater Kansas City region and worked together for decades.
As the practice grew, Dr. Parkins joined the group and it was given its current name: Drisko, Fee and Parkins. In April 2019 DFP ( short for Drisko, Fee and Parkins ) became Orthopedic Health of Kansas City.
What Patients Say
Great customer service. Very little waiting time from appointment time to being seen. Doctor personality and nurses and radiology personnel FANTASTIC attitudes. Thank God for their services.
2 years ago I had hand and foot surgery at the same time. I was not only impressed with both doctors bedside manner and scheduling but the return visits also. The surgery went very good and they will take time to listen to your needs. 5 stars and more.
I was delighted to find a foot and ankle MD! Received good consultation insights and if and when I do need more attention to my big toe, this is where I will come. Everyone was courteous and efficient.
