I'm very happy both my 2 year old son and I switched doctors to Dr. Derrington. She, along with her whole office and staff, is very friendly and sweet and caring. She is also very detailed and explains everything and is very personable. She knows what she is doing and gives us every resource my son can utilize. I really appreciate having her for our doctor. I'm glad we made the switch.

provider herself was fine. didn't explain that i needed to check in with lab, didn't explain process of waiting for insurance to approve ct before scheduling. minimal communication still have no answers of what could possibly be going on with me and zero communication about what to expect going forward to find out what is wrong with me. the front desk attendant was very cold and had zero compassion for helping someone who was sick and in pain. will seek a new provider and new clinic once this is resolved

She was friendly, but failed to follow up on two other health issues that I brought up during this appointment. She also failed to examine my body. I never sat on the table. She attributed my condition to an allergic reaction, but did not check for any signs of swelling in my mouth or throat. She did not listen to my heart. She did not address the pain that I was reporting. I ended up back in the office 48hours later seeing another provider as a result.
