About The Staff

Darren McKendry has been passionate about cleaning, polishing and preserving automobiles for 37 years. “This has been my one and only source of income since I was 13 years old. I have been told this is rare, but when you love what you do why change? I have shown and won with my own automobiles in many concourse events and have helped hundreds to accomplish the same. Every day holds a new adventure at Doctor Detail and I continue to love it”.


What our customers are saying


Words cannot describe how amazing Darren and his team are at bringing your car’s image back to life. This is the second time I’ve had my car detailed here and I’ve been blown away both times.

Ricky H

Having used my Harley to commute 120 miles round trip for six months, sufficed to say it was filthy. Doctor Detail did an absolutely amazing job, far exceeding my expectations. The bike looks damn near brand new – I really can’t believe it. I’ll continue to bring my business here and highly recommend it to anyone.

Gene S

Tried several “high end” detail shops around OC. No place even comes close to the job they do at Doctor Detail.


Jeriel T

“This place knows how to make your car look brand new! Took my black Z4 to have a complete detail (interior, exterior, engine bay) and my car looked better than when I purchased it.
