Breast augmentation, September 21, 2010, 6:36 pm
Reviewer: jeepgirl08

Dr. Derby did a breast augment for me in Nov 2005. She did a wonderful job and my results are amazing! Even 5 years later I'm still extremely happy with the results. Dr. Derby was very caring and compassionate. Her entire office was so wonderful, professional and always friendly. I have recommended Dr. Derby to everyone I know.

Caring and helpful doctor!, September 21, 2010, 5:01 pm
Reviewer: laurakrauth

We were referred to Dr.Derby and couldnt be happier. We were able to get right in to see her. She treated our daughter, Kaineene wonderfully. She listened to our concerns and addressed each one. When our daughter had the scheduled surgery Dr.Derby met with us first and again explained what was going to happen. Kaileene was nervous and Dr. Derby put her at ease! THANK YOU DR.DERBY! We would HIGHLY recommend her as well as her staff!

Horrible experience! capsular contracture and double bubble, December 5, 2009, 3:19 pm
Reviewer: Hanabill

This was my most recent message sent to her and her staff

I am requesting my records including surgeon’s notes to be faxed to xxx-xxxx and original mailed to my home address. I am completely unhappy with the services I've received from Dr. Derby and staff and will be going to another surgeon to correct her mistakes. I don't feel that I should have to pay for repair of my CC or the Double Bubble on the other side. Had I not gotten the Capsular Contracture, I’m certain they would both have the double bubble effect. In my research, there are ways to prevent especially the Double bubble look. I feel Dr. Derby didn't take my concerns seriously beginning back to just 4 weeks post op. She didn’t even touch or inspect my breasts after the fact and made a statement that they looked like my breast tissue was falling off the implant. The excuse was that it is still early was simply and excuse and now I need repair. My original request was for Saline through the areola but I asked for Dr. Derbys professional opinion and went with her professional recommendation.
I tried to talk to her at around 6 weeks and she deferred me to her uncaring Nurse. Who by the way, wouldn’t help me when I called on several occasions during the first 2 weeks of recovery. I had tried to explain to her that I was in considerable pain and couldn’t take the hydrocodone because it wasn’t helping. I tried to get more perkaset and she said to just take the hydrocodone or extra strength Tylenol. I ended up having to just suffer because those remedies didn’t work. I actually still have the hydrocodone. In my conversations with her she acted as if I was a bother and didn’t make me feel comfortable talking to her. At that time I started sending e-mails and Dr. Derby refused to talk to me and I was always deferred to the nurse.
I finally got my concerns taken seriously at which time it was too late. The nurse finally got me scheduled to come in at around 12 to 14 weeks, 6 – 8 weeks after calling a couple of times and being stuck talking to the nurse. At that time Dr. Derby saw me for maybe 5 min didn’t touch or inspect them and told me to take vitamin D. The stinking nurse could have said that at my initial call 5-6 weeks post op. By that time it was obviously too late. Then after 4 – 6 weeks on Vitamin E, I’m then put on Singular and again a 5 min visit with no real inspection of the breasts. This has been such a horrible experience!
Dr. received 6500.00 and wants another 2300.00 to fix just the cc and lord knows how much for the other issue. I feel that it is her responsibility to have done the necessary precautions to ensure a job well done, appropriate follow through for the satisfaction of the customer, especially knowing multiple surgeries were planned. I would like my records immediately so I can correct the now painful capsular contracture I live with everyday. I am so angry and upset with the aftercare or should I say lack thereof. If there is some form that needs to be completed in order to receive my records, please fax it or e-mail it so I can get my deformities fixed. So much for Dr. Derby being a cosmetic surgeon, there is no cosmetics about deformities! I plan on contacting the implant provider as well to express my concerns and the Better Business Bureau. I expect a resolve to this matter immediately and give until Monday afternoon before I file my complaint with the Better Business Bureau. I will also be contacting the American Board of Plastic Surgeons and American Society of Plastic Surgeons Inc.
