Worst doctor ever. I was in trrrible pain and he told me I was out of shape (no kidding, I have a disability preventing me from normal activities) which was the reason for my shoulder injury and told me to look up exercises on the web to get better. He barely examined me and sat down in a chair...more

Dr. Detroit is awesome. Professional, competent, took time to explain my problem without making me feel he was in a hurry to go to the next patient. Found a fracture missed by another physician. Staff were friendly and helpful. Thank you Dr. Degroot!
