Because her schedule was a little behind, she talked very quickly, which means I didn't fully understand everything she said. Also, while we were filling out forms, she was going so fast and she completely skipped over the gender identity question,which made me (a non binary person) kind of uncomfortable. She at least seems very knowledgeable and maybe if I had gone in on a different day, it would've been better.

She's eccentric, funny and cares for her patients, but her bedside manner needs work. She was very aggressive and asked the same questions over and over again, even after I had answered them. It felt like an interrogation. Normally, doctorscalmly walk you through what's happening but she didn't do that. I was confused the entire time. I didn't receive the care I expected and felt like I wasted a doctor's visit here. I left very upset. Unfortunately, I will not be coming back.

My first visit to Dr. Dercy was awesome. I had a bad cough and constant fever for 10 days, and she immediately started a full physical to figure out what’s wrong. She was very knowledgeable and personable when she asked mequestions on my family history and what meds I’ve been taking. Her recommendation of a MRI scan really helped hone in on the root cause. She also really cared for me and urged me to go get treated and get a CT scan at the emergency room for faster treatment. In addition, she made sure I looked up my insurance coverage before taking any steps. I’m definitely keeping her as my primary! Thanks Dr. Dercy!

This was the worst experience I've ever had at a doctor's office. The doctor didn't seem to be listening to what I was saying and kept asking me the same questions repeatedly. She never asked if I had any questions, anddidn't make me feel comfortable. I left the appointment feeling incredibly frustrated and annoyed.
