I interviewed several doctors before deciding I would choose Dr. Derr. He is very smart and has a great reputation; but more important to me than that was the time he took to explain everything in detail and answer my many questions without making me feel rushed. I instantly liked him and felt comfortable choosing him and being under his care. My knee surgery went well, and next year I will be having him perform surgery for a foot issue I have. He is the best!
