Dr. Derman has been my doctor for several years. I highly value his opinion, and I trust and appreciate his care. His honesty and sense of humor puts me at ease. During a recent unexpected, short hospital stay, he consulted with the attending hospital physician to determine my care, and then made time to see me for a follow up visit a few days later. I appreciate that he has gone beyond to consider my diagnosis and find the right referral to a specialist. It is clear that he really cares about his patients. I believe that I am very good hands with Dr. Derman and feel fortunate to have him as my physician.
