My husband and I have great confidence in Dr.Dede. He has a great bedside manner and is very easy to talk to. Our daughter has a very complex medical condition and Dr. Dede never made us feel like ours concerns were irrelevant. We would highly recommend him.

September 20, 2017

One of the best experiences I've had from ER to Surgery to Post Op care. Dr. Dede and his staff are exceptional.

August 30, 2017

We were told numerous times during our visit to see a Rheumatologist. the provider did not refer us to any and made the comment that he didn't understand why we were even there. He didn't offer any suggestions on how to deal with my daughter's pain/problem. We were treated better by the assistant rooming us than the physician. I would never go back or refer him to anyone.

We have already recommended Dr. Dede to a good friend of ours who needs care for their daughter.

July 26, 2017

We sat for almost an hour between the Dr telling us they would cut down the cast and the nurse/assistant actually coming in to do it.

Dr DeDe is a great Dr. I would recommend him to anyone in need of Pediatric Orthopedics.
