I was extremely pleased with Dr. Dettinger and his staff. Everyone was very caring and a pleasure to interact with. My visit with Western Rockingham Family Medicine was an awesome experience. Dr. Dettinger was a great help to me and I couldn't have chosen a better physician. I look forward to a long and happy relationship with Western Rockingham Family Medicine.

do not feel he listens to me and my concerns, does not explain things so that I can understand them adequately

My concern was the reoccurring problem I came there for which is why the doctor had test ran. However, no one contacted me to advise me of the results of my test. I had to call the office and received a return call from a nurse that wasn't sure of the results. She advised she wasn't sure if the doctor even looked at the results. To this date I did not receive confirmation if the test confirmed what I was given an Rx for. I then received an email saying on the portal my test results where available; however, I do not understand the results of the medical test ran. I feel test were ran that I will have to pay for and nothing was confirmed or explained.
