We like Dr Dee's but when your appointment is at 9:30 and the patient has to wait until 11:30 before the Dr comes in is not right. We had to rush our appointment since we had other Dr appointments scheduled thinking we would of been seen and gone. Note to self don't schedule more than one appointment a day

All the staff from the team on the 10th floor was amazing I would recommend any of my family members to come here with their child and I leave 3 hours away

Each time we see Dr. Dees she does an excellent job of explaining any/all concerns she has in a way that is easy to understand, she spends time answering our questions and never rushes us or dismisses our concerns. We are incredibly thankful that she is a part of our son's care team.
