Two amazing practices are now located in one brand-new, spacious, state-of-the art facility conveniently located just off I-696 and Woodward in Ferndale. The modern Ferndale Medical Building is the new home of husband-and-wife team Dr. Derek L. Hill, D.O., and Dr. Elizabeth Pensler. The project required more than two years of planning, renovation, and hard work.
“We’re thrilled to provide superior, quality care for our patients in such a beautiful new space,” Dr. Pensler says. The office building is also home to other medical practices, including Dr. Hill’s AZ Solutions (a research lab) and Dr. Pensler’s Elizabeth Face & Body Med Spa.
Dr. Hill is an orthopedic surgeon who is fellowship-trained in the hip and knee. He also treats a wide array of sports and trauma injuries. Dr. Hill is a clinical associate professor in the Department of Surgery at Michigan State University’s College of Osteopathic Medicine.
Board-certified by the American Osteopathic Board of Orthopedic Surgeons, Dr. Hill is also an author and lecturer who graduated from the University of Michigan and attended medical school at the Midwestern University–Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine.
