Specialties

Dr. Amy B Dedeke has the following 2 specialties

  • Rheumatology

    A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
    Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult. Rheumatologists use medications, such as analgesics, NSAIDs, steroids, DMARDs, infliximab, and adalimumab, as well as occupational therapy, in order to decrease pain and improve a patient's quality of life.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Great Doctor

I had gone to numerous Rheumatologists who just wanted to throw more medicine at me. She took the time to find out what I needed and helped turned my health around.

Don't see this doctor if you want compassion.

She is very condescending and makes you feel like you are crazy and just a waste of her time. Talks to you as if you are a child. I wanted some help finding answers not someone to talk to me in such a way that I left defeated and in tears. Worst experience with a doctor I have ever had.

Ok, the few reviews that are good on here, absolutely came from her or a friend! Believe what you read on here people! She misdiagnosed me and said I was completely fine except a little swelling! Well, I knew I was not fine! I went somewhere else and I was diagnosed with RA, degenerative disc disease, scledermis, fibermyalgia and Lupus!!! I am at a specialty hospital clinic related to Another Medical center! It turned out I was indeed very sick and even hospitalized for a week because the steroid she gave me threw me, a type 1 diabetic into DKA! I was in ICU for 3 of those days. I have contacted an attorney. Run from this woman. I refuse to call her a doctor. Also, I never asked her for pain medication, but she kept saying,"I don't do pain meds". Ok, fine, I take Aleve lady! I told you that!!! The funny thing is, after my hospital stay, they could not believe I was not on anything else! They put me on fentanyl and oxycodone and my primary doctor referred me to pain management!!!! See you in court!!!

This Doctor Has Behavioral Issues

Waited over 5 months to see this doctor - which is fine if I get appropriate treatment - which I didn't. The staff intake nurse stressed that Dr. Dedeke is one of the best doctors - so I thought great - get to deal with my joint/pain issues. When this doctor entered the exam room - she immediately took on an aggressive tone. She seemed to be angry that I did not bring medical records from previous doctors. Became insulting when I asked for injectable Methotrexate (prescribed pill form in past year that did not work - but years before the injectable did provide benefit) - she angrily told me that I would have to take the pills since it was in short supply (this was the case in 2012) and is needed by another class of ill persons (won't get into details here). Then she later muttered that Methotrexate would not work for me. No discussion about what would work. She refused to discuss my Psoriasis even though it is related to my joint condition. She continued to deepen her aggression - and would interrupt me during conversation and would talk over my attempt to explain my issues. She insulted me about about being disabled, like it was beyond her belief (even though she could see the unique anatomy in my hands). I have had doctors get on their own band wagon during an exam - but she was inappropriate in her behavior and lack of medical evaluation during the exam. I saw her in a YouTube discussion about her treatment practices - being caring, listening to the patients needs - none of this was present during my exam - a 180 degree change in behavior. Will not see her again.
