Meeting Dr. Derr, I was nervous and in pain. Nothing had helped. Within one minute of sitting in Dr. Derr’s chair and talking, she really impressed me. That’s not easy! I’m a nurse. I’ve worked with thousands of doctors and seen numerous chiropractors throughout my life. She was different! She had already studied my chart and meticulously poured over my X-rays, compared them with previous X-rays, my previous diagnoses, previous treatments, visits, complaints, etc. She was incredibly well-informed and ready to discuss everything she saw and everything I’d been through when I sat down. I have never seen anyone do that at the level she did! I was just so relieved and became optimistic. She always takes her time to discuss all her findings and thoughts with you and makes sure you completely understand everything. She is an AMAZING educator and communicator. She is so intelligent, insightful, perceptive, discerning, approachable, kind, compassionate, and funny. She has a remarkable ability to make me feel comfortable. She is both gentle and incredibly effective with her treatments. I had been in pain and treated for the wrong thing for about 9 months. She found the issue before I even walked into her office. She held my head taking pressure off my neck and it was the first time I had been pain-free in ages, which absolutely confirmed her diagnosis was correct. I honestly could have cried. We talked about, agreed on a treatment plan, and got started. I walked out of her office ELATED! I felt the best I had in YEARS. I truly felt HOPEFUL that by the end of the treatment plan, my constant pain and discomfort were going to be greatly improved. No surgery. No meds. I can’t tell you just how much all of this means to me and how hopeful I am for the future. I have Dr. Derr to thank for all of that!

Dr. Karen Derr is a magnificent doctor on ALL points! I was very skeptical and intimidated by the thought of going to a Chiropractor and informed Dr. Derr of this during my initial visit. She communicated her understanding and took the time to sit with me to get a thorough understanding of my symptoms. She was FULLY ENGAGED in what I had to say, asking many questions, explaining the results of my MRI and detailing the source of my pain. She then provided me with a detailed diagnosis and proposed a phased treatment plan. Once Dr. Derr began treatment, she explained EVERY procedure AND what to expect. This is the first time since moving to the area that I was not rushed, spoken down to, and provided vague information at a doctor’s office. ALL Doctors should take note from Dr. Derr. Under her care, I have received more relief for my condition than from prior surgery and medication. I wish I had found her sooner and will follow her to any office in Tampa Bay, no matter the distance. Hats off to Dr. Derr and her team. They truly set the bar!"

Dr. Zaffer has been a true blessing. He listened and worked with me to manage my pain after 2 Achilles reconstruction surgeries within less than a year. Highly recommend.

I had meniscus repair twice (due to sports re-injury) by Dr. Yi with a very good outcome. My recovery was smooth and uneventful, with no complications or problems. The clinic, surgery center, and staff are all top-notch. Thank you, Dr. Yi, Christian Johansson, and all the staff!

It was my first appointment with Dr. Yi, and I was really impressed by his candid responses to my questions. His willingness to hear my concerns helped me make a confident decision based on my personal circumstances.

Dr. Yi was great. He provided me with his expert medical opinion, laid out several options for the next steps, but ultimately said the path we chose moving forward was entirely my decision. He really puts the patient first, which is very important to me. The wait to see the doctor was a little longer than usual, but they were very busy that day. Still, it beats my previous ortho, who I could never see! So far, I have consulted with three different orthopedic specialists at FOI for shoulder/knee issues, and all have been top-notch professionals. Highly recommended. Thank you!!

I couldn’t have asked for a more caring Doctor. His explanation of care for my daughter’s injury went above and beyond my expectations. Will definitely be seeing him in the future!
