Patient Reviews (5)
in Winchester, MA |
I went to Dr. Deraska for my diabetes. He sure did a great job in prescribing the proper medicine which helped control my A1C. He's the best at what he does.
Framingham, MA |
He was the worst. Staff was rude. He was rude. Wait time was long and he has no compassion. DO NOT SEE.
in Boston, MA |
Dr. Deraska is extremely thorough in his evaluation and understands his patient's needs when they ask. Not all patients are the same and what may be normal to one may be not for another. I very much appreciated his progressive and forward view on that.
in Melrose |
Donald Deraska is an outstanding doctor. Although I have had to wait to see him, it is well worth the wait. He is extremely knowledgable and thorough. He keeps up with current research and always fills me in on any new developments that effect my health. He is a true partner in my healthcare, educating me about my condition so that I can make informed decisions. He is very respectful and compassionate. I never feel rushed and he always answers my questions. I highly recommend him.
in Lexington, MA |
He needs to lighten his patient work load. He is too busy to respond to simple patient requests such as calling in a prescription renewal in a timely manner. When I requested that he give me a call a member of his office staff told me that he has patients booked throughout the day so it would be difficult for him to call me. I had to insist that he call me. He did call within 1-2 hours. Was not helpful. Seemed somewhat put out.
