Getting to know your provider
Why did you choose your profession?
I wanted to be a physician since I was a child. I was a sick child and my doctors worked with me. I became interested in how they knew so much and wanted to be like them. Of course, over time I’ve been fortunate to experience medicine as the crossroads between science and humanity.
Why do you work at NOAH?
I have always wanted to return to work in underserved communities. I love that NOAH prioritizes care to all.
What are your passions outside of your profession?
I enjoy time with my family, baking and music.
If you won the lottery tomorrow, what would you do?
I don’t know. I would probably keep working, travel more and donate the rest.
What the community is saying …
Dr. Deatherage was so kind an respectful; not condescending, presumptuous or judgmental like previous providers I’ve seen. She was easy to open up to and talk to and even though I overloaded her with questions she went through it all.
Elena - Midtown Health Center Patient
It was my first time visiting this office and meeting this provider, and I couldn’t be happier with my experience. My wait time was minimal. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful, Dr. Deatherage was knowledgeable and warm!

I love Dr. Deatherage she actually listens and lets me take my time explaining my situation.
