Dr. Dede was efficient, provided practical recommendations and clear explanations, the office staff was friendly. Very positive experience.
Our visit to the office was great. Everyone was friendly and helpful. They made my daughter feel comfortable when she was nervous about being there.
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 great surgeon and woukd recommend him to others

The overall visit went smoothly ,but we are still dealing with pain.
Dr. Dede was very kind and showed compassion for our situation. I appreciated that he was honest and direct.
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
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.
Dr. Dede was thorough and kind.
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. Dede is a great doctor who's staff is great with kids and their families
Dr. Ozgure was great, thoroughly answered my questions and was very helpful.
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!!
Dr. Dede was very good, took his time and explained things. everyone was very nice and friendly.
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 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
