I came in in so much pain, and was worried about what the cause could be. I had previously been to the convenient care clinic in the marketplace, and though they were courteous and attentive, they were unable to determine the cause, so i followed up with Dr Derington whom resolved my issue. I'm so grateful!

It was awsome the whole appointment from begaining until the end didn't have to fill out a bunch of paper work.. it was my first visit and they got me in and out faster than I ever thought imaginable.. I have no complaints at all.. it was by far the best experience and fastest experience I have ever received at a Dr. Appointment.. exspecialy beeing my first appointment. I can't believe the courtacy they had for me and nobody seemed to judge me for my previous drug history.. I am 10 months clean and sober and it felt good to be treated like a human beeing even after I revealed my drug history.. All Glory and Honor to my savior Jesus Christ.

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.
