Patient Comments (1)
Scottsdale, AZ |
Dr. Derby corrected our daughter's AV canal when she was 5 months old. He thoroughly explained everything regarding her defect, as well as what he planned to do surgically. After the surgery, he spent a generous amount of time talking with us about the repair and what to expect. Our daughter is now thriving at 5 years old! Great bedside manner and very concerned about all family involved with patient.
