When driving 3 hours for an appointment for an opinion for someone due to your child pain. It would be nice if providers actually listened to patients symptoms and parents. go over medical history before you get there when records were sent. This could help diagnosis children.
When we arrived it turned out that the schedule clerk told me the wrong day than what she had scheduled in the system. I went to the clinic clerk who went above and beyond to get my daughter seen right away. Even with all the confusion the staff were wonderful, patient, helpful and caring. They got us seen and the cast on my daughter's broken arm way quicker than I ever would have imagined given the circumstances. I am thankful that she got the care she needed without having to make the drive into the city again. They also scheduled the follow up/Cast removal appointment at the Monroeville office, which is a lot more convenient.
Dr Dede is an amazing ortho. He is kind, personable and very thorough. He spends time explaining everything. We recommend him to everyone.
Dr. Dede was very kind and showed compassion for our situation. I appreciated that he was honest and direct.
The overall visit went smoothly ,but we are still dealing with pain.
Outstanding experience from beginning to end! Would recommend this hospital and physician to anyone!
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
Dr. Dede was thorough and kind.
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.
he's awesome couldn't of ask for a better Dr
Dr. Ozgure was great, thoroughly answered my questions and was very helpful.
Dr. Dede is a great doctor who's staff is great with kids and their families
I was sad when Dr. Deeney retired, but I like Dr. DeDe
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.
One of the best experiences I've had from ER to Surgery to Post Op care. Dr. Dede and his staff are exceptional.
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.
provider care was excellent
I love this office and hospital. The staff are always kind, organized, on time, and through. And everything is very clean!!
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 was very good, took his time and explained things. everyone was very nice and friendly.
Dr. Dede was great. Very professional and thorough and prepared. Highly recommend him
Dr DeDe is a great Dr. I would recommend him to anyone in need of Pediatric Orthopedics.
Most appointments were prompt. Doctor had patience to answer questions
Dr. Dede's team is an amazing group of people that love what they do!
outstanding Visit everyone was so nice while sitting waiting for x rays I noticed a tic on my son they helped me took a pic seen it was and got dr right away to help me couldn't have been more thankful for everyone and how nice they were we moved along with our appt and everyone was so nice
Dr. Dede was extraordinary in our daughter's care from beginning to end. We never felt rushed or unimportant, our questions were always welcome whether it was Sunday at 1 am after surgery or at our afternoon office follow up. We feel fortunate to have had him a part of our lives after a very unfortunate accident.
My daughter had surgery and I was very happy with the care she received before, during and after with Dr. Dede. He really took the time to listen to her extensive pain issues before the surgery and did all he could to assist her after the surgery. Her incisions and healing are perfect and the surgery seems to have been a success! Thank you!
We love Dr. Dede he has given our daughter exceptional care, love, compassion, attention, and kindness. He is very respectful, friendly and always has a huge warm smile on his face. He is very knowledgeable and definitely answers our questions along with educating us on our daughters medical conditions. We make the long trip to have his care because we know our daughter is receiving the best care
this was our first visit with Dr Dede since Dr Deeney left. it was a good experience.
I was very appreciative that Dr. Dede changed his schedule to accommodate mine for my child's follow up appointment. It was extremely helpful to my work schedule.
appointment was for 2:10. saw dr after 3:30. there were no updates on him running late etc.
This is not our first experience with Dr. DeDe, the very first time we met him he seemed like he was just no non-sense straightforward (kind of harsh bedside manner). However, as we have gotten to know him and experience more things with him the more I can say that is completely not truly at our last visit he was joking and laughing with my child rubbing his head asking him how that or this sounded. He has done excellent work with my child and I know to expect the best he can do for my child which is all any one parent can ask for the best possible even if at the time you don't like what you hear at first. I would recommend him, his office, and Children's Hospital to anyone!
our overall experience was excellent!
Dr. Dede has been great throughout this whole process of recognizing, treating & monitoring my daughter's hip displasia. with every visit, he was knowledgeable, kind & answered all my questions, easing my worries! Fantastic doctor.
Dr. Deeney was our original dr for my son's clubfoot. this was our first visit with Dr Dede. I was nervous about getting a new Dr this fair into treatment. and worried about understanding a dr.s English. Dr. Dede was fantastic!! He had answer after answer for us. talked about all the research that backed the answers to our questions. related to us as a parent himself. he spoke very clearly and down to earth! while he decided that our son was in such great shape we could end treatment!! we would have enjoyed working with him.
The Dr had someone else with him and never introduced her to us the parents. The Dr never looked at the xrays or results of them prior to the appointment. He also gave worst case scenario as the only option at first. He had a very poor bedside manner and said one thing and then after looking at the xrays wasn't sure what to say.
My son was rushed to Childrens with a sever leg trauma from the second we were greeted at the doors we had nothing but positive assistance from the staff, nurses, aids , student and especially Dr Dede. I cannot speak highly enough about him and the care that he has given to your child.
Dr. Dede may be a great surgeon but he makes you feel like his job ended when he walked out of the O.R. He tries to pawn follow up appointments off on other departments and institutions. He does NOT give care instructions to an inpatient institution, he expected another department to do that. I WILL NEVER LET HIM NEAR MY DAUGHTER AFTER SHE IS DISCHARGED FROM HIS CARE for this surgery she had.
very competent and detailed
Overall, I thought the office room where she had her cast replaced was dirty. Did not look like hospital clean standards to me. Made me question other things during my experience. Also, we were first seen by a physician assistant. Although she was nice and professional, I did not understand why we had to see her first. I drove an hour to come to this hospital and paid a premium in my co-pay to see a specialist doctor. My concerns were put to rest when we eventually did see Dr. De De. they were both very professional and I was pleased with their assessments.
Dr. Dede is the best of the best! He is extremely knowledgable and takes the time to explain the entire process in a way that is easily understood. We highly recommend Dr. Dede.
We love this doctor and the staff! We came here to get a second opinion about our child's hip dysplasia. The doctor was simply great. He answered our millions of questions and took the time to explain every detail to us. This second appointment was a check up for our child's progress. Once again the staff and Doctor were just great with our daughter and us. We are so happy we got the second opinion here!!
Everyone in DR. Dede's office was great
