Patient | May 6, 2017

This is my first visit with Dr. Derr and I absolutely LOVE him! I know he is very busy and he has patients that are way more critical with injuries more complicated than mine but he made me feel like I was the most important patient he had and that my (minor) injury was very important to him. He is friendly, does not talk over your head or make you feel ignorant when you share your thoughts about your injury. I HIGHLY recommend him.
