I drove 1 hour for my Dr. appt at the new office. When arrived I was not on Dr. Derr's appointment list (no fault of Dr. Derr). I could be worked in at 3:00, my appointment was at 9:45, I was not going to wait that long. Dr. Derr is a fantastic Dr. and I have been going to him for several years. I hate this happened and I will be finding another Dr. closer to home

Very efficient Chechen and short wait times. Dr. Derr was very friendly and informative. Checked my ankle which had an Achilles’ tendon injury and he determined it wasn’t as serious as I thought, so he gave me stretching exercises, had me ice it and keep a boot on for a couple of weeks to stabilize it. Very satisfied with my care and the entire staff was great. Beautiful offices as well and all the facilities they need. Highly recommend.

Very long wait. Had a 2:30 appointment and arrived on time with paperwork completed online ahead of time. Waited for 45 minutes and after being brought back to the exam room waited another 35 minutes. The doctor apologized and was polite and didn’t rush through my exam. Next appointment will be scheduled early morning. Dr. was patient and listened to my complaints about my leg and seemed knowledgeable. I plan to return for a follow up appointment for the same issue.

I’ve been using Dr. Derr for years. He can completely be trusted to provide you the best possible care there is - he will refer you to a partner if what you need is not something he specializes in. He wants what is best for the patient! Professional, polite and always right on! Thank you Dr. Derr for your great care of me and my family. You have been a huge blessing to us.
