About the Staff

Doctor Detail - Your Detailing Specialist!

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”. Darren has been married since 1994, has three children and resides in Carlsbad California. Hobbies include motorcycling, mountain biking, hiking, keeping fit, and enjoying life with his family.

Gerry Preciado, Manager, at Doctor Detail understands how to take care of customers and has 20 years knowledge at Doctor Detail to prove it. His mechanical and trouble shooting skills combined with his patience to educate his staff on proper techniques and skills makes him a major asset to the everyday success at doctor detail. Gerry has been married since 1989, has two children and resides in Costa Mesa, California.
