What People Say About Dr. Daniel Dimeo, MD

It is his way or the highway. You cannot ask questions or suggest anything to him. He uses medications that are not recommended for children and then uses 2x the amount recommended for an adult. When you ask about getting a second opinion he says he wont see the patient again and they would say the same thing which I found was extremely incorrect. He has terrible manner and often talks over you when you are trying to ask and understand what the procedure or medication is. Consider someone else.

I can not say enough great things about Dr. Dimeo and his nurses. Our son's Crohn's Disease diagnosis was a hard pill to swallow, but the care and knowledge of Dimeo and his nurses has made this journey much more bearable. We are thankful beyond words for their expertise. Our family highly recommends Dr. Dimeo to anyone with GI issues. His care has completely changed our son's quality of life for the better.

Dr Dimeo will not see patients who have seen another GI. He won't consent to coordinating care with patients whose primary GI doctors are far away due to multiple medical conditions. He does not allow patients to seek second opinions. This is pretty messed up.

One of the best doctors we have ever seen for our son. He keeps appointments open for new patients so we were able to get an appointment within a week of calling. He was running ahead of schedule and they took us back immediately for our appointment. He had already read our son's file and took plenty of time to understand his situation. He even adjusted his schedule to get him in for testing as soon as possible. He was very caring and considerate during the procedure. Awesome doctor!
