About Dr. Darrow

Philosophy of care

When caring for children and young adults, my goal is to provide them with the tools and confidence to thrive in their growth and development. In terms of disease, I use a step-wise approach to diagnose and treat. Prior to any testing or treatment, I weigh the risks and benefits with families to ensure the best outcome without harm. I believe in lifelong learning and strive to obtain and practice with the most up-to-date guidelines.

Why I entered medicine

My interest in working with children began at a young age as I was born into a family of elementary education teachers. I have always been fascinated with the human body and the miraculous ways of self-healing. As a former athlete, I had a particular interest in the musculoskeletal system and human physiology which drove my early studies.

Personal interests

My free time is spent with family including our two very cute but mischievous dogs. We love spending time outdoors, (and enjoy hiking and exploring the Lehigh Valley), as well as going to movies, and sports. I'm an avid Disney, Harry Potter, and Philadelphia sports fan. Go Eagles!

Ratings and Reviews

About Our Ratings and Reviews

About our Survey

Our physicians and advanced practice clinicians (CRNPs and PA-Cs) are among the nation's best. That's why we show you patient satisfaction ratings and comments so you can read about and get to know our providers through the eyes of their patients.

To ensure our ratings and comments come only from verified patients, we work with NRC Health, a third-party organization. NRC Health sends patient satisfaction surveys on LVPG's behalf following an office visit or procedure. They ask patients about their impression of the health care provider and the doctor's or advanced practice clinician's communication skills.

What is included in the star rating?

Star ratings are based on a scale of 1-5 stars, 5 being the best. The rating includes responses to these provider-related questions:

  1. Physician Communication Questions
    1. Did this provider give you enough information about your health and treatment?
    2. Did this provider give you easy to understand information about your health questions and concerns?
    3. Did this provider listen carefully to you?
    4. Did this provider seem to know your medical history?
    5. Did you trust this provider with your care?
  2. Overall Provider Rating Question
    1. Using any number from 0 to 10, where 0 is the worst provider possible and 10 is the best provider possible, what number would you use to rate this provider?

Why don't all doctors or advanced practice clinicians have a rating?

In order to have enough data to measure and compare, a health care provider must have at least 30 completed patient satisfaction surveys. Surveys are included for a period of 12 months from submission.
