Simply the best there is
He is one of the most kind caring and compassionate Doctors I’ve ever met. Takes time with you to explain what’s wrong and what can be done to treat it. He treats you with kindness and actually listens to you. I couldn’t have placed my trust with anyone else he truly is the best!!

Dr. Derrington was professional and informative. He performed the PRP on both my knees. I have osteoarthritis of both knees! Due to lead exposure! My PRP was just done on Feb 22 2022! Linds

It took 10 months for me to realize the full effect of the procedure. My recovery was consistent through month 6, progress slowed through month 8, but at 10 months I had full mobility with no pain. Dr Derrington and staff were great!

Dr Derrington’s focus is truly about helping the patient. He listened to my medical history, all the avenues I’ve tried (many), and never made me feel rushed or unimportant. Everything and everyone was very professional and I will definitely continue to recommend him to friends and clients as well as continuing to use him myself.

Very good initial exam and diagnosis. The PRP injections were painful. I've had health problems since, maybe coincidentally, but still not diagnosed.

Dr. Derrington listened well, understood & diagnosed with the right modalities- with a diagnostic ultra sound. Then, to confirm his findings, he recommended an MRI. Dr. Derrington then did the PRP procedure with the diagnostic ultrasound to guide him. Truly knowledgeable professional in sports medicine therapies! (Gentle & kind too). Wrist healed strong & well with a lot of physical therapy to help it along. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND DR DERRINGTON

Dr. Derrington did more to put an end to my several years of suffering than the more than ten Kaiser neurologist, orthopedics and neurosurgeons had done for me. He listened. He used the MRI’s and X-rays that I provided to target the problem areas and put me on the road to a normal pain free life.
