Patient Comments (5)
in KANSAS CITY MO |
I had a freak accident at my home and broke my right ring finger. I went to St. Joseph Emergency room and they confirmed the break and referred me to Dr. Deardorff. I called her office the next morning and they got me right in. As I could not write, a member of their staff helped me fill out the lengthy questionnaire. Dr. Deardorff was professional, compassionate and explained everything to me in terms I could understand. After 4 weeks of physical therapy, I am on the mend. Two thumbs up.
Thank you for the review!

I've seen Dr. Deardorff for atypical trigger thumb in 2009, which eventually required surgery and for both elbows for tennis elbow in 2014 and a hand injury in 2015. She is knowledgeable, personable and professional. She explains things very well and highly recommend her.
