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.
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!
appointment was for 2:10. saw dr after 3:30. there were no updates on him running late etc.
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
we saw doctor pretty fast. till they cast his armname re xrayed it and saw Dr again,. we were there almost 2 hrs. the Dr was really nice
I was very happy with the doctor. Answered all my questions and put my mind at ease. Very professional and really knew what he was talking about. Any more problems in future I will definitely be calling him. I thought he was an excellent doctor.
We loved Dr. Dede, very professional and kind and patient, though he had a full office of patients.
Dr Dedei is an excellent surgeon. He relates well to his patients
The care providers were excellent
Dr. Dede was very gentle and kind towards my daughter in regard to her injury. He asked her directly in a soft tone how she had gotten hurt. He was very nice towards her and showed her the x-ray so that she could see what her hand looked like.
UPMC was amazing!! From the doctors to the nursing staff we felt that our child was being cared for. They also ensured that our needs were met. We wish this situation had never happened, but we are very thankful for the care received at UPMC. Top notch!!!
Dr. Dede operated on my daughter's foot after an ATV accident. I believe her foot is healing as well as it is because of his expertise. Excellent surgeon and excellent follow-up care.
Dr. Dede and his staff are very nice and always cheerful when were are there. We are very thankful for their help!
I think it's wonderful how all the staff (doctors, nurses, registration personnel, etc,) all talked to my children and not just my husband and I. Even my daughter's siblings were talked with by all personnel with real sincerity. Thank you so much!
