This was my first time going to Children's hosptial and I was really impressed. Everyone was so helpful and we actually spent more time driving to the hosptial than the appt. Dr. Dede was great.

we had a great experience all around

From day one we have been extremely pleased with the level of care Dr Dede has provided for our daughter. Immediately following her surgery we could tell he was tired, but he still took all of the time we needed and answered every single question and even double checked with us to make sure we were comfortable and felt informed. Every visit with him has gone well, he always answers every question and never makes it seem like he is being bothered. I would recommend him to anyone.

Dr. Dede is amazing with my daughter and answering all my questions. last Friday when we got there with her broken arm, he instructed his nurse practioner to get us to the ER within five minutes of looking at her X-rays. He has trained the ER ortho resident very well and she finally had surgery around 7 pm

we waited over a half to get back to the exam room. We waited another half hour to actually be seen by the doctor. Dr. Dede was clearly in a rush because he was behind. Inhad brought up a concern that my son's cast had gotten wet. I was told that cast should be changed by other medical professionals in the event the cast got wet (ER Dr and a nurse). Dr. Dede smelt the cast and said it was fine to bring him back if thwbcast got an odor. I feel like he just didn't want to change the cast because he was in rush. Now my son's cast falling apart and I will probably have to make another appointment just to get it changed. He is also more at risk for infection as a result.

I'd say our appointment was "fine". I felt I could have had a better explanation of symptom. When I asked my child if he understood what was going on, he said no, but didn't get any help.

Dr. Dede was thorough and kind.
