When I first started with Dr Derosier I thought he was a good doctor. He seemed compassionate and truly concern about helping me. He was fine a couple of years. I didn’t care for the way his staff treated me and other patients but felt I could tolerate them. After a few years my condition did not seem to improve and he got to where he wasn’t as cordial as he had been. He got to where all he did when he saw me was write prescriptions that kept me drugged. He danced around any diagnosis other than obvious. I thought he was originally my friend and a good doctor. He began not looking at me, just writing prescriptions. One day he told me he couldn’t treat me anymore and left me high and dry. He was curt, unfriendly and abrupt. He was the worst doctor I’ve ever encountered. Luckily I found someone quickly who diagnosed my conditions, help me get off the horrible drugs he had me taking and found safe medications to replace them. I would never recommend him to anyone

I have been trying to get an appointment with Dr. Des Rosier for months now. The messaging service is not reliable. Please contact W. Tyler Dix at 210-790-4842 as soon as possible. I need a follow up blood test to see where my Immune Sysem is at and blood platelets also. He put me on Hydroxychloroquine for my possible Lupus. Thank You!

I have a very hard regard for Dr. Desrosier after seeing him on two different occasions. He is a highly knowledgeable physician and an extremely warm and caring person. He took a great deal of time to talk to me, including taking a an extended period of time to explain and discuss lab results. He asked me numerous questions which gave me a great deal of assurance to know that he really wanted to assess my physical status. He has a very positive personality and a desire to truly serve others. He has a very courteous and polite staff which makes for a very positive experience. I hold Dr. Desrosier in very high regard and highly recommend him to others.

Dr. DesRosier was was extremely thorough and informative. He spoke to both my wife and I for nearly an hour. He affirmed that I have rheumatoid arthritis and outlined a plan to deal with it in a systematic way.

When I first went to him, I thought I finally found a good Dr. My 3rd visit, I was in terrible pain, he said it was fibromyalgia and there was nothing he could do. I just sat there, I didn't know what to think. He might have been telling me the truth, but if he can't help me, why go back. And I didn't.

Dr. Desrosier has POOR BAD SIDE MANNER!! I would never recommend him. He is not a compassionate doctor!! What I cannot understand is when he says you do not have Lupus but you have an auto inmune illness but he cannot say what type of illness. Really, a doctor that has 38 years experience cannot diagnose his patient properly such not be in practice!

Dr. Des Rocier carefully listens to everything I say and has at times quoted something back to me that I said months before. He is very careful in everything he does. I've been seeing him for several years and have recommended friends to him. I'm very glad he's treating me.

Worst physician and staff! Expect wait times between 2-3 hours, poor treatment, and zero compassion from the physician/office staff.
