I just felt rushed out. I'm been in pain with my eye. and still in pain. she didn't even check my eye. it swollen and red. very painful. I waited a week before I called because of trying to fix it myself and then to finally go and be rushed out. not very happy. I really want answers on what's going on with my eye.

Dr. Derrington was fine. I never feel reassured about whatever my issue after I have met with her, I hope the diagnosis and medications work but frequently they don't resolve my problems and new ones appear. after at least 12 visits over a few years.

I thought I was getting a physical but leaving the visit she had only listened to my heart and poked on my abdomen and said I was healthy and she would see me in a year. She did not ask me to point out where my concern was nor did she think I needed blood work since last done in Aug 2018. If physicals have changed, I apologize.
