Sara is great.


Dr. Has ALWAYS been caring and listened to every problem.


The doctor listened to me and looked at my ankle and said I was right. She then prescribed a med that took care of the infection..


Sara is always so genuine,and takes so much care and time on helping to make sure you receive adequate care.


Here's the deal. Sara is freaking AMAZEBALLS. I said it before , I will say it EVERY TIME. She has far surpassed any M.D I have EVER HAD . EVERRRRRRRRR. I don't care that she's "technically" a P.A. She's MY DOC. And will remain so. I will not go to anyone else and I will continue to refer people to her because she CARES. She's not a pill pushing, "you're just a hypochondriac", "I know better than you", "trust me.. I'm a doctor" physician. SHE gets results and doesn't stop until she finds answers or someone who does. I freaking love her.


I would recommend Sara to anyone that is looking for a provider. She is extremely compassionate and knowledgeable and takes the time to answer all of my questions and addresses my concerns. I would literally follow her anywhere and don't think I could ever find a better PCP.


I actually just recommend one of my best friends to see her. She is amazing and has help me more then any doctor before!


It is hard to describe how wonderful it feels to get this level of care in a small rural office. I am so grateful I found them.


Sara was very thorough and explained everything well. She listened to me and was receptive to my suggestions. She is very quick to answer messages on the patient portal, which I appreciated.


Sarah always listens and doesn't treat me like I'm crazy for having the questions I have.


The best


Excellent service


I ALWAYS recommend Sara!


Dr Deringer does a great job!


I absolutely LOVE Sarah. She is thorough, kind, never makes me feel rushed. She is professional and caring. I've sent two of my adult children to her and will hopefully my third will also be able to see her. Please take care of this person. She is invaluable to all her patients.


Dr Sara is very kind, caring, and takes her time with her patients. She never makes me feel rushed. She always listens and gets the help needed


Sarah is the most caring and compassionate provider I've ever had. She always takes the time to answer my questions and truly listens to my concerns. I have referred 3 people to her and they all love her too.




I have been recommending Dr. Deringer to all my friends & family. She listened to my concerns & helped me.


nothing but good


I am often asked why I go all the way to Ovid from Lansing and I always tell them how amazing Sarah is and how important it is to me to have a provider who listens to me and respects my opinions.


I recommend my clinic to everyone, always.


Excellent experience.


Couldn't ask for a better doctor.


Sara is always so compassionate and easy to talk to. She's extremely knowledgeable and takes the time to thoroughly answer all of my questions.


Here's the deal. Sara is THE best doctor I have had in DECADES. Which is why I followed her to Ovid-Elsie. You all keep sending me this questionnaire but my answers won't ever be different.


Never a bad experience with Sara Deringer - Cohorst. She's thorough, explains things, listens to me.


I couldn't be happier with the care i receive from Sarah. She's always compassionate and truly listens to what I have to say. I feel very fortunate to have found her as a provider!


Dr. Sara is the best doctor I've ever been treated by. Our connection is one in a million!


Great clinic


love Sara she is the only doctor I have had that actually listened to me !


Sara is amazeballs! I kept coming to her she moved to Ovid Elsie because she is the absolute BEST. she's personable, informative, she listens but she also knows when to be firm. I'm going to be extremely upset when my husband and I get stationed out of state. There is only ONE sara. I may want to pack her in my suitcase and take her with me. Is that allowed?


I have even switched my son here instead of his pediatrician we had for first 2 years.


Miss Sara is an exceptional care provider. She continually eases my children's worries to the point that they enjoy doctor visits.


All good


I really like the way the p a is with me and how she does her work


I am sure Dr Sara is a great Dr but that's hard to determine when she calls in sick so much.


Sarah is the best doctor hands down!!! I love her, I travel 46 miles one way to go to her and I would travel 100 miles if I had to.


My kids have both been seen by Sara but this was my first visit. I would highly recommend her to anybody seeking a primary care provider. Sara was extremely compassionate, knowledgeable, and concerned about my health. She explained things in a way i could understand and thoroughly answered all of my questions.

would never recommend to anyone.


I still have not been called about my test results. The call should have come Thursday or Friday at the latest although I was told 3 days which would be Wednesday. I called the following Monday and its Wednesday again with no return call yet.... :(


Sara is the best doc ever! I wouldn't trade her for the world! she is knowledgeable, doesn't pull punches, doesn't let me get away with my excuses :)! I don't know what I'd do without her! With my husband in the Navy, I'm going to be hard pressed to find a doc that can measure up when we get stationed somewhere else. (I don't care how great they are. There is only ONE Sara) She takes the time and effort to get to the root of each cause without wanting to just toss pills at you! WHAT A BLESSING! I suffered from several conditions for YEARS before I found Sara! BECAUSE of her, I am NOT ON A MILLION MEDS, I KNOW what my conditions are, and my outlook on life isn't one of doom and gloom. CAN I PUT HER IN MY POCKET AND TAKE HER WITH ME?
