This doctor does not really want to be a "doctor". He spent about 3 minutes with me and decided that I needed surgery-- his assistants do the shots. He seems to walk through the paces but he's not really committed to being a doctor. The surgery he recommended was not 'necessary' according to two other opinions I sought. From what I can tell he might be good technically BUT he seems to be in practice to make money, and do as little as possible with any patient interaction. I will never go back to him again.
Dr Dee and his staff go the extra mile to make sure your needs are met. They make it so simple from making an appointment to scheduling surgery. The staff there is great. They fill out paperwork and receive authorizations in a very timely manner. My experience there has always been wonderful since the first time I stepped into the office.
After I injured my knee playing soccer I was pretty depressed thinking I wouldn't be able to play or run anymore. It hurt just to stand or walk. After Dr. Dee performed ACL surgery and 6 months of rehabilitation I have slowly been getting back into a jogging routine and I feel hopeful that within a year I'll be playing soccer again. None of it would have been possible without Dr. Dee's help!
