We were seeing Dr. Dewan for a second opinion, and while he ultimately had the same recommendation as our previous provider he gave a much more thorough explanation than we'd previously received. At one point our son became visibly upset, and Dr. Dewan showed great compassion toward him and did a great job of explaining things to him. He took his time with us, listened to our concerns, and answered our questions.

Very thoughtful. Intelligent. Easy to discuss and communicate with which is rare to find in a Dr. Caring to our child and rest of family. Dr. Dewan has made this process easier to bear considering the magnitude and seriousness of the subject. Vanderbilt is fortunate to have him work on these major serious issues.
