I’ve seen her for all of my hand/wrist issues for several years. She’s patient, she listens and is very empathetic. Her MA’s are amazing (Esme & Andre) and the front desk ladies are always super friendly and welcoming.

Dr. Deardorf has excellent “bedside manner” when talking with her. She explained everything very clearly and completely to my understanding. I would definitely recommend her to anyone needing her medical care. I will be seeing her again and would highly recommend her.

Will never forget my final appointment with this so called Dr, she was more concerned with me filling out a survey so I wouldn't come back later. When I asked was this my last appointment, is this as good as my finger was ever going to get (I didn't even have 50% movement of what I once had due to an injury), her reply was oh no I think you will get more movement and said on the way out she would schedule more therapy but I really didn't have to come in any more but she never did schedule my therapy and even when I called back they never did schedule it. Granted this was work comp and maybe they wouldn't let them or maybe she just plain didn't care. Its amazing that the assistants in the office showed more concern that the Dr. In each visit she would hardly move my hand around or actually feel the joint or measure progress, each time she would say she needed to measure it but wouldn't and would just use the info provided by the therapist. For a hand specialist she isn't hands on.
