Ratings for Dr. Donald M. Dewey
The only thing Dr. Dewey did for my husband was to put in and remove his external fixator. Everything else was left to his very incompetent P.A., Mike. Mike is not a people person! He stopped me in a busy hallway of the hospital to talk about my husband's "drug problem." My husband was not on any illegal drugs. When my husband's fixator pins became infected, he put off the necessary surgery to correct the problem. The day before my husband passed away, Mike bent my husband's leg back and forth. Mind you, his knee, in Mike's terms, was powder. This idiots treatment and refusal to help him get into pain management lead to my husband's untimely and early death.
Wonderful experience with Dr Dewey and his staff. He listened. Answered questions. Extremely knowledgable, is the firstly ho doctor I've seen who gave me time and seemed to know my specific injuries /conditions very well. Genuinely cared. I will highly recommend.
Did not show me X-rays. Had medical student with him. More interested in interacting with student. Was left with many questions and lack of clear treatment plans. I sought a second opinion and was so thankful I did. Night and day!! Dr Dewey is jovial but cavalier.
I am very happy with not only DR. Dewey but also his kind and knowledgeable staff. I do not feel rushed when I enter his office or when he is talking to me in an exam room. With my badly broken down knees I have seen quite a few Ortho Doctors. Dr. Dewey is the only medical doctor that I could in all honesty tell him to do what he feels is best and let him handle it all. I cannot even do that with a hairdresser! I feel that I have been blessed with a very wonderful doctor and staff.
Dr. Dewey is a wonderful Dr.He is so knowledgeable,kind,patient,and he really cares about you.He is not one of those 10 second Drs.that is so common now.He really spends time with you and .listens to you.I go to him for severe Arthritis in my feet & knees.If I need any orthopedic surgery he will definately be the Dr. to do my surgery.
Dr. Dewey took care of our 81 yr.old mother with the utmost respect and care. He performed surgery on her arm and she came out fantastic. I can't say enough about his bedside manner and attentive care. His interaction with the family was prompt and reassuring, I would strongly recommend him to anyone with orthopedic needs in this area.
I had lived with a hip injury for 16 years, and no one had been able to diagnose or treat it until I saw Dr. Dewey. Within two weeks, I was preparing for surgery to finally correct it, and I am now cane-free for the first time since I was a teenager. I can't give a higher recommendation than that.
Dr. Dewey provided excellent care for my son. At the age of seven he was diagnosed with Perthis Disease in his left hip. Without Dr. Dewey my son would have ended up with a hip replacement at a young age. He has now moved his practice from Tallahassee to Pensacola and my family will travel to his office if we are ever in need of an orthopedic doctor.
