Dr. DeRito has the ability to place you at ease even when dealing with the thought of subjecting your to-year-old daughter to surgery.

Was great. Explained everything so we could understand. Answered all our questions. We felt like we really understood everything and he is very understanding.
I was very impressed with Dr. DeRito. We were in the office for my son and upon leaving, I made an appointment for myself for some sinus issues I've been having. Dr. DeRito was very approachable & was great at explaining what was going on and how to manage my son's condition in a very natural way. I would highly recommend him.
He was very nice .
Dr. DeRito is amazing! I appreciate his expertise in his field combined with excellent bed side manner. Any nervousness I may have had before my initial appt. was immediately diminished in the first 5 min of talking with him. Having worked in the medical field in the past, my initial impression of a professional friendly office was confirmed by his interaction with his team. What a fun office environment!
Dr. DeRito was very pleasant to talk to. He was friendly, positive, and informative. One of my biggest pet peeves with doctors is when they are short with their answers and seemingly cut you off from your questions. Dr. DeRito was the opposite...he took his time and thoroughly answered all my questions, and made me feel like my health was important to him. Thank you Dr. DeRito!
He was very professional .
Dr. was very personable..made me feel very relax..he was informative..and answered any questions I had..look forward to seeing him again on my next visit..
Doctor made us feel right at home, and was quite informative. Felt like he knew what he was doing. Did not feel rushed, and felt he had our best interest at heart. This includes solving our issues and doing it in a way that we could afford.
Dr. DeRito is amazing! Love him to pieces! Great with my kids, office staff is wonderful too!!!
He's a great person. Always listens to you and takes his time to explain things to you.
The Dr was amazing! Know how to joke while being serious very friendly and will tell it like it is straight to the point but in a nice way was the most helpful ent I have met ever!
I've taken my son to Dr. DeRito twice now, and both times we were pretty much taken back right away. He has a great sense of humor and has helped with my sons ear issues.
He really cares about the patient and makes you feel comfortable before he starts the examination. He explains everything and takes the time to sit down with you and discuss your questions and discuss your diagnosis. He explains if and why further tests are necessary, but does not order more tests if you don't need them.
As always Dr DeRito and staff are great.
Awesome ENT Doctor.
Amazing doctor! Great with children and good sense of humor to lighten the experience! Thorough with investigating the cause of the problem and highly recommend!
I'm very disappointed I made the appointment because I have this terrible noise in both my ears and the doctor told me to buy a old radio or a sound machine to put in my room so I don't here the noise in my ears . I lost my time. Half day off work and money because I still have to pay for the visit this is ridiculous
I really like Dr. DeRito attitude. He is enjoyable to speak with. I'm thinking about setting an appointment for a hearing aid check, but will wait till my current problem is better. Thank you
Excellent explanation on all aspects of a recommended surgery. He took his time to ensure my spouse understood both the risks of surgery and potential consequences if surgery is not done.
Dr. DeRito listens and makes and gets all of the information before he makes a diagnosis.
I like Dr. DERITO. .
Dr.DeRito has a fun warm way of approaching his patients. My son absolutely loves seeing him and the great staff! Thank you and your team for always making us feel at home.
Dr. Derito is a confident and experienced physician. After consult and examination, he offered an immediate solution and treatment plan. He is also very warm, friendly and humorous. I enjoyed my visit. His staff sent me my forms in advance. Everything is smooth. The practice is not over-booked like most Drs, so you don't have to wait hours after your appointment time. I would recommend Dr. Derito. Thank you.
Dr. Derito was very pleasant. A breath of fresh air (in the Dr World), he made me feel like I was important and he talked to me like we had been friends for ages. His sense of humor was Wonderful! And it relieved all the tension of the room. I wish all Dr.'s were like him.
He was a joy to be examined by, very friendly, thorough and by the time you leave his office, you will feel as if you've known him for some time.
Great Physician! Couldn't ask for a better doctor.
Dr, Derito is very friendly, knowledgeable and compationed. I'm very glad to have him as my doctor. I'd recommend him to family and friends.

I will surely recommend Dr. Derito to anyone who needs a good ENT!!! The staff were also awesome!!! I had a pleasant experience with the Plant City office!!!
Our visit with Dr. Derita was great. He is unable to do the procedure that our daughter needs(a very rare congenital birth defect). Yet he is going out of his way to help us find a specialist out of state! He was also up to date on recent studies etc. It was refreshing to meet a Dr. Who really sees the whole patient and who really cares about his patients.
I love Dr. DeRito. He makes you laugh and feel at ease.
Dr. DeRito is kind, warm and caring and a true professional. Today was my third visit and I will continue to see Dr. DeRito on a regular basis because I have a condition that requires regular visits.
Dr. Francis and his staff were professionals, polite, and made us feel comfortable. Dr. Francis was super nice, took time to answer all my questions.

I highly recomen thid E.N. T. office!!!
Dr. Derito is awesome. So friendly and knowledgeable. Its nice to have a Dr. Who truely cares! I would recommend him to anyone.
Love Dr DeRito been going to him for over 20 years.
Doc is great with kids. The staff are all friendly and the wait time has always been under 20 minutes. I grew up spending a lot of time with ENT specialists and Doc DeRito is one of my favorites.
I have had more than several office visits with Dr. DeRito due to reoccurring tonsillitis, and at each visit I was in and out of the office within 20 minutes. The staff are very polite and friendly. He is a great listener, he's very focused, always answered all of my questions and concerns in each visit. Just recently I had a tonsillectomy, where Dr. DeRito removed my tonsils, and that went very well. When it was my turn, I was in and out of surgery within 30 minutes. His surgical team was awesome, they even sent me a nice little card in the mail signed by the whole team, including Dr. DeRito himself. Recovery was very easy, and I healed exactly how he said I would and there were no complications. He is very friendly and has a sense of humor. I highly recommend him to anyone and any age, he's a fantastic physician and highly knowledgeable in his specialty!
Ive been back and forth for the last 4 years through another ent.And my son has had ear concerns throughout the whole 4 years.Ive been putting off the process of changing drs.for about a year but, then i finally did and its been the best thing so far!!! I really feel welcome and my son feels comfortable:-)?
Concise and understanding
Everything was explained very clearly. Felt very comfortable going to him.
DeRito recommended Flonase for my sinus issue. Ordered Catscan at my request.
Was so happy my ear feels a lot better
We've seen a lot of specialists with my 4 year old daughter over the years, and Dr. DeRito is one of our favorite doctors. He is both knowledgeable and reassuring. Very happy we were referred to him.
best doctor I ever been attending,love his ways of consultation
Charming guy. Thorough. Direct. Clear explanations.
Very Professional and friendly
Very professional and easy to understand. Makes you feel confident in his diagnosis and recovery. Highly recommended Doctor and staff. Thank you
Not only is Dr. Derito a great doctor, he truly has a passion for his patients and making sure that they are well informed and comfortable with each visit. I would not trust anyone else for my children or family. With great doctors sometimes comes not so great staff. This is NOT the case in this office. The numerous staff members and audiologist are just phenomenal. They are kind,prompt, and very supportive. We have been truly blessed to be cared for by such an amazing group!
My visit with Dr. Frank DeRito today started promptly at my appt time. Dr. DeRito made me feel comfortable and at ease throughout my visit. His humor helped to keep me calm and relaxed. I would recommend him as a 5 star professional ENT Dr.
He was very kind and efficient.
Excellent doctor and the office staff is always willing to help!
Dr. Frank was very informative, precise, and caring in the treatment of my ear problem, and he knew how best to trat it. I would recomend him to anyone as one of the best ear doctors I have ever had. Harry G
I Loved every part of the visit and the procedure. If I could do it all over I would that's how awesome everything went! Thank you
Friendly, and quickly diagnosed my ear pain, and treatment.
Dr. DeRito explains in a way that one can easily understand him. Always has a bit of humor in the visit. This was only the second time I have seen him but feel like hes an old friend - well not an OLD friend but like one I have known for a long time. My 2 appoint- ments were a pleasure, not a pain.
He is very friendly and professional. He has a great sense of humor and explains things in a manner that's easily understood. I would definitely recommend Dr DeRito to everyone.
I needed to be seen soon and was able to get an appointment the following day. Dr. DeRito was thorough and professional and I could not expect anything more.
I have used Dr. DeRito, for almost 15 years now. I would not trust any other Doctor with any E.N.T. Issues!! Great Personality! Truly Cares For His Patients! Great Knowledge! You can rest assured that he will take good care of you! Thank you for all of your help Dr. DeReto ! Best regards, Michael P.
The doctor is amazing with children and adults alike. He has a great bedside manner and his staff is wonderful as well.
Didn't seem to take my concerns seriously.
Dr. DeRito is a great doctor. He takes time with you.
I've been to a lot of doctors all over the world, but Dr. DeRito has the absolute best bedside manner. Additionally, he is very confident and competent. If he were a family practitioner, I would bring my whole family to him.
Dr. Derito is very friendly and personable. Without wasting time he can discuss your case and some personal things putting you at ease. Every one in the office seemed quite competent.
A pleasant experience learned alot.
He was great and interacted well with my kids. He really got my son to co-operate with everything. Very outgoing and friendly!
He was awesome and made my son and I VERY comfortable
Really like dr DeRito, had thyroid biopsy done and he was very gentle and explained the procedure thoroughly with me. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an ENT. He's "the man" for sure!
Dr Francis is a great doctor. I only have one word for him: "EXCELENTE" Thanks
I was very impressed with both Dr. DeRito and his staff. They were not only very punctual and efficient but super friendly as well. They had me smiling or should I say laughing the entire visit. Hands down the BEST bedside manner I have encountered in many years and due to multiple and chronic health issues, I have seen more than my fair share of doctors. I can't believe I am going to say this because I typically hate going to the doctor but I'm looking forward to my next appointment. Having to wait less 10 minutes was just icing on cake. Keep up the good work and great attitude!!
The doctor was very receptive to listening to my symptoms and allowing me to fully explain. I think his awareness of collecting the full list of symptoms allows him to make an accurate diagnosis in a timely manner. I felt completely confident that he would treat my symptoms quickly and have me well right away.
Dr. DeRito was very easy to talk to and took his time in the examination. He was very thorough and explained clearly the treatment he prescribed. I was very pleased with the appointment.
Very personable and knowledgable. He gives the patient the feeling you are a student of the diagnostic and treatment decision process. This is a far cry from earlier times where a hurried physician prescribed a shot and an aspirin and sent you on your way.
Pleasantly timely professional experience
Dr. Derito is a great guy who puts you at ease right away. He cracks jokes and makes you laugh. I enjoyed my visit and was seen in a timely manner.
A very professional, efficient and understanding man. Not only was treatment accurate his "bedside" manner was beyond most Doctors. The front office staff as well as the nurses were efficient pleasant.
Dr DeRito and staff are first class!
Dr.DeRito is a wonderful doctor I recommend him to anyone.Im so thankful that he was able to find out what was going on with my neck. Thanks for everything Dr. DeRito. Your Awesome
Very friendly and makes the patient (me!) feel comfortable. I've been going to him for years!
Loved him. Immediately felt very comfortable.
Tells you like it is like we all need to hear it! Very easy to talk too. I wish they all were like him!
Enjoyed the doctor very much to point and likeable, office personal very nice to.
Dr.DeRito was very personable! He made the visit enjoyable. He gave examples of my condition and they were a big help. I was very impressed with his conclusions concerning my situation.
I personally like and trust Dr DeRito. He is very thorough and forthright in answering questions.
