Patient Comments (1)

in Virginia Beach, VA
Dr. McDermott performed surgery on me over a decade ago and I have been seeing him annually for follow-up checks (colonoscopy) since. My experience is that he is one of the most competent and caring doctors I have ever been too. I would recommend him to everyone.
