Rear Derailer/cassette

First post on this forum. Sorrowfully, it's a question on how to fix my bike.

I have a 2002 bianchi imola. The other day my dad decided to take it out and drop it. It fell on its right side and hit the rear derailer. Now when I'm riding the chain disengages and engages 3 or 4 times a rotation. Just wondering if it's fixable before I take it into the lbs.

It should be fixable. Most likely just a bent derailleur hanger which -- if not excessive -- can usually be realigned by your LBS (i.e., someone with an alignment tool who knows how to use it).
