My 3 year old daughter broke her leg and I wanted to find a specialist that could explain to me the implications and healing process. Dr Dodwell did an amazing job at that and the HSS is a hospital that gives a very professional impression. All their staff was friendly and focused on reducing waiting time. They have a very efficient system. Only complaint I would have is one of the nurses that works with Dr. Dodwell started doing a diagnosis which was wrong and which Dr Dodwell corrected.

We saw Dr. Dodwell for our daughter's turned in feet. She explained everything so well.
Dr. Dodwell performed emergency surgery for our son's elbow fracture at New York Presbyterian Hospital. We did follow up at her regular office at HSS. We've seen her many times during our son's recovery. From our first meeting with her in the emergency room through each of our office visits with her, we've been thoroughly happy with the interaction. We trust her completely and feel blessed that she was the doctor on call when our son needed surgery.

Dr. Dodwell uses a nurse practitioner who makes the initial assessment and states what she thinks the treatment plan will be. Dr. Dodwell comes in after the NP's initial review and does a 1 minute review. She sent my daughter off for x-rays and never returned. The NP gave us the treatment plan. Go out-of-network and see another HHS doctor if you have a choice.
