I've worked in the medical field for over 30 years, and have become awith acquainted with many physicians, and have managed 5 practices throughout that time. Dr. Darby is our favorite physician, not only because of his keen expertise, but also because of his genuine interest in his patients, the time he spends with them, and his humility that you won't find in other physicians! Dr. Darby is one-of-a-kind, and we recommend him highly!

Concur with the other reviews. Dr. Darby is a gifted doctor, with an authentic demeanor, and genuinely cares about you as a person, not just a patient. He is far and away the best EP cardiovascular MD in the area. We travel over an hour and a half to see him, as it is very much worth it to our health. He is an outstanding doctor, and without question, a wonderful person.
