Dr. Jonathan T. Deland's Ratings
Dr. Jonathan Deland - you get what you pay for - the best. Formidable skills. Practical and pragmatic and extremely thorough. Forget it if you want bed-side manner! I would rather have the best and a no nonsense approach. My surgery was a big deal and it took all of my Summer away but I am walking and through it now. I could not be happier. And an exquisite job in terms of scars or lack of scars for what looked like Frankenstein Foot four months ago. I had over 20 stiches. October 2014
Dr Deland may be a terrific surgeon, but he had absolutely no bedside manor, which for me, was everything towards my recovery. He was indifferent, and uncaring each and every time I went for follow-up. My healing from a bone graft, took much longer than was expected and I felt he wished I would just go away and not bother him which inhibited my recovery!
Dr. Deland went to Harvard, the number 1 medical school in the US before attending Columbia. He is excellent in diagnosing, even takes your foot pulse, can read the fine print of bones in an x-ray and reccomends elegant, artistic work. He is straight-forward and caring, and even called me on his cell to answer myriad questions. Super organized and buttoned up staff. There is no one better. Even his shoes are elegant.
In addition to being perhaps the most revered doctor in his specialty, he has a very well organized office and intelligently recommends one physical therapist whom he has found to be most effective post surgery. If I have foot surgery again, I would only return to him.
I had an old achilles tendon injury that hadn't healed well, then my the inside tendon ruptured below the ankle. I tried a custom Arizona brace from another doctor. It didn't help. The foot deformed so I had to have bone grafts, tendon transfer, ligament repair, and lengthening of achilles tendon. The surgery was 4/15/10. I stayed at HSS 3 nights. The recovery was difficult, painful, life changing. However, it was what I was told up front. I used a knee cruiser to get around for months. But by September I was hiking in a cam boot. On 2/8/11 I had the hardware removed, as the plate on the top of the foot was painful. I can't thank Dr Deland enough for getting so that I can walk again. He's incredible, patient, caring, worth the wait, and every penny I paid!
Dr. Deland is by far the most exemplary specialist I have seen in my 61 years. He is an impecable surgeon, his staff in ofc and OR could not have made my surgical experience any better. There is no problem communicating with him/staff by phone or email. Incredibly prompt and assuring. I did not experience any " surprises" with surgery/recoup. The HSS is top notch in patient interest. Highly recommend Dr Deland. State of the art knowledgeable, honest, concerned with the patient as a whole and meticulous and assuring. All questions answered and felt everyone was available for me whatever my needs.
Exceptional - difficult/complex problem that was solved - virtually no one else could have accomplished - ankle replacement...professional in every respect - could not be more enthusiastic re every aspect ranging from diagnosis thru recovery...and Hospital For Special Surgery is first class in every respect.
I broke the bones in my ankle in three places - and after waiting for four days at another hospital to have surgery (although I was told that I need the surgery ASAP!) I left and went at HSS. Dr Deland so me in the morning and in the afternoon I had the surgery - no pain ever since, and everything is going well!I highly recommend him!
