this visit went very well from my last time where I sat for almost an hr past my appointment time. I got right in and done in 30 min
May 29, 2019
I don't have any complaints, the the entire staff at that office is great, always polite and willing to help you in any way they can. And for Dr.Deer he takes all the time you need at your visit, and very kind. The same goes for Dr Kourey and her staff.
May 29, 2019
Dr. took all the time I needed and gave me a plan for my problem. He explained everything, I told him of my concerns and I was given his advice and that is what we went with.
May 29, 2019
I arrived about five minutes before my appointment checked in and I waited just a short time.
May 29, 2019
I feel as I keep writing the same thing my visit with everyone was great. I'm both Dr's that I see are there.

i enjoy my visits with Dr Deer. he explains everything thoroughly and he cares about me and how I am feeling. I know he has my interests at heart and is caring for me and my medical issues.
Apr 30, 2019
did not actually view anyone washing their hands
Apr 29, 2019
The doctor I see is a good dr. I am happy with his treatment.
Apr 29, 2019
Seem that every appointment I've had has taken about 2-3 hours from time I get there to time I leave.
Apr 29, 2019
Seeing the dr. is very good he does take the time with me. Its the time I wait to see him _____ my schedule I wait from an hour to more and more waiting in the examining room.
Apr 29, 2019
I well recommend this dr. he is a good dr. no problem with that. It's the time I wait to be seen by him. I am from out of town and like to get there with enough time to spare this last appointment I had was at 10:00 a.m. got there at 9:00 a.m. It was 11:00 a.m. when I was finally called and was out of there about 12:00 noon. No one bothers to tell me if dr. is there or running late until I get up and ask myself cuz I see people going in and out and me still waiting pretty upsetting. Thank you. All my appointments has been quite a wait time.
Apr 24, 2019
I love Dr. Deer. He is such a great doctor. I've recommended him to a few people.
Apr 16, 2019
was informed that doctor was with another person and I was next.
Apr 1, 2019

Apr 1, 2019
Very courteous.
Apr 1, 2019
You would get very good on this but I feel *Doc Deer is bad about his not washing hands. Otherwise the staff gets very good. Thank you.
Apr 1, 2019
2. The doc fails when it comes to #2. He doesn't wear gloves and he doesn't wash his hands! Yuck!
Mar 29, 2019

Mar 29, 2019

This doctor actually seemed to care about my health compared to my primary dr.
Dec 19, 2018
There is usually a long wait - I'm used to that.
Dec 19, 2018
Sign on front of entrance - "no concealed weapons". If something were to happen to me or a loved one due to that post/practice, I would retain counsel as you are tacitly agreeing to provide for my safety. I am investigating OTHER sources of health care.
Dec 5, 2018
no delays
Dec 4, 2018
Dr. Deer took the time to explain to me what was going on.
Nov 29, 2018
I have recommended Dr Deer to other diabetics on Nextdoor.
Nov 28, 2018
I sat in the exam room over 30 min past my appointment time waiting for the DR
Nov 25, 2018
*Dr. Deer takes my health care/diabetes even further by calling me if there is after hours phone call to make sure I have what I need - that being said, getting an appointment is difficult.
Nov 19, 2018
This office is so kind and thoughtful. They are there whenever you need them. Even though they are not very close to my house I would not go anywhere else.
Nov 19, 2018
He called me at 19:30 PM (7:30 PM) to give me info regarding my A1C_____ and to run through my pump over the phone to adjust my levels.
Nov 19, 2018
I know offices (doctors) especially on a Monday are always busy but they handle it well and recover quickly.
Nov 19, 2018
He is awesome, very helpful with info and really cares about me.
Nov 19, 2018
The only complaint I have is when I had to wait over 30 min... but there was an emergency with another patient.
Nov 8, 2018
Good team and/service at the Buckeye location. This includes the convenience location for patients to conduct routine blood draw.
Nov 8, 2018
Appreciate Dr. Deer. To date and going forward for now, total confidence in him treating me for my condition.
Nov 8, 2018
I have already recommended the Buckeye practice to my wife.
Nov 7, 2018
Every contact person I encounter is professional, well trained, courteous, kind, etc. I like this office very much. Apparently, they schedule patients according to the time needed rather than to overbook and make patients wait too long. I like that. Even the LabCorp personnel within the Abrazo clinic is the same. I would recommend the whole package. I travel to get there but they make it worth my effort and time.
Nov 3, 2018
Dr. Deer is amazing, 10/10 as always.

*Dr. Deer is the best endo I have ever had. He willingly listens to my requests about my treatment. I trust him more because of that.
Oct 27, 2018
staff is friendly and helpful
Oct 18, 2018
for a first visit and for the issue I thought he would have spent a little more time the physical exam was all of 5 minutes and he is an experienced specialist but I would have like an explanation of how in seconds he felt the size and texture of the thyroid nodules and when he told me my thyroid wasn't the cause for all my symptoms I felt one he could have looked at all my symptoms since I wrote them down and maybe also explained why he decided that when what my primary care had thought that was the case. I should have asked but at that time I was a little overwhelmed even though I had notes with questions
Oct 18, 2018
it seems like a large health plan clinic with various specialties and seemed to look and run more efficiently and gentler than HMO's of the past.
Oct 18, 2018
I wasn't there long enough to really respond. I didn't see anyone wash their hands but he just touched my throat and listened to me breathing it appeared clean and I was given information on privacy policies
Oct 16, 2018
I checked in on line before I arrived which was a very convenient process.
Oct 16, 2018
Dr Deer has always been very concerned and professional in all my visits. This visit was longer than most because I had concerns and he went over all my symptoms with me and ordered a different medication. We scheduled a followup visit along with lab work and an ultrasound. I have complete confidence in Dr Deer and am very happy that he is treating me for my thyroid condition.
Oct 16, 2018
I did not observe anyone washing their hands but I am confident that everyone no doubt does many times a day.
Oct 12, 2018
all staff were very courteous and professional.
Oct 10, 2018
Dr. Deer listened to my concerns and spent time examining my blood report results I brought in. I didn't feel rushed and had all my questions answered.

I really like Dr Deer. He seems to care about your concerns and how you feel about upcoming events regarding my health. I really like how quickly he responds to my emails. It doesn't take long at all and they are precise and to the point. I was having problems getting scheduled for a test and he had his team reach out and I was called within a few hours. I thank him for that!
Aug 17, 2018
This is a great practice, from the appointment reminders via phone text, to the staff at the front desk, to the staff doing the weigh and check in, and finally to Dr. Deer. It's a pleasure receiving this level of service.
Aug 17, 2018
Great practice, great staff, great Doctor. KUDO's to all.

Aug 16, 2018
Dr. Deer is a great Dr. He always makes sure to address your questions and concerns and takes as much time as needed to go over any test results and actions to be taken for any needed changes or adjustments to medication.
Aug 16, 2018
I did not mind the wait because Dr. Deer always gives each patient as much time as needed to address any questions or concerns. He never makes patients feel rushed and that to me is a very important factor when choosing any Dr.
Aug 16, 2018
Tracy and Bri were very pleasant and professional
