Dr. Derbes takes the time to listen to you, to find out what is going on concerning your condition and does the tests that may give insight into your diagnosis. He never ignores any symptom no matter how insignificant you may think it is. He explains your diagnosis in terms that you can understand. He truly cares about his patients and I would highly recommend him to anyone. I look forward to my visits with him and trust him completely.

Excellent Doctor. Very knowledgeable and caring about his patients.

Would not recommend this doctor. Bad communication. Does not listen to patient. Believes putting you on medication is the only answer even if it makes you feel worse.
Best doctor ever! Very kind and compassionate. Cares about his patients. Not only have I been his patient, but my husband and son were too. He always treated us with the upmost professional care. Would recommend him to anyone, anytime. Have been his patient for over 25 years.
