Palm Bay, FL |
I had ACL reconstructive surgery on my right knee. He did a wonderful job, I can honestly say the knee felt better immediately after surgery, and the swelling I had was fairly minimal. Prior to surgery he was very clear and exact regarding the damage to my knee, and the protocol necessary to ensure the best outcome. He did not rush the surgery and in fact delayed my first date due to my range of motion not being sufficient. But it was the right decision, I could not be happier with the results.

Dr. DeJong is the best. I had to take my daughter to see him after a sports injury. I had a small wait to see him which I have learned to expect when seeing ANY Physician worth seeing, an office you never have even a small wait for is an office that isn't taking the proper time with their patients. He took his time explain everything and answered my all my questions. My daughter is back to sports doing very well. If your looking for a good Sports medicine Dr. I def. highly recommend Dr. Dejong.

After seeing several specialists at an academic medical center, I tried Dr. DeJong as prior physicians were extremely compassionate and thorough but could find no reasons for my pain. Dr. DeJong kept me waiting for almost 1 1/4 hours as he dictated other patients' notes; told me he didn't want to read my notes (I had previous tentative diagnoses & questions on a piece of paper.) On exam he gave me little feedback, didn't give results of x-rays, begrudgingly answered questions with the door open

Dr DeJong is a first rate physician & surgeon. He performed surgery on my knee and he took time to answer all my questions and concerns. His office staff is the best also !

Visited for evaluation of significant shoulder pain. Dr. DeJong explained the shoulder issue thoroughly. Recommended cortisone shot to ease the pain and inflammation. Pain was totally gone in less than a day and range of motion is back to normal.

I was totally satisfied with the care Dr. DeJong gave me from initial examination, during treatment, and through final care for the broken bone in my leg. He showed complete interest and care in treating my problem, and was able to communicate on a patient level to assure me that I was in good hands. I am a retired RN after 40+ years of practicing, I find Dr. DeJong personable and of a nature that does not talk down to patients, he identifies with them on a more human level.

Excellent!
Rockledge, FL |
I feel completely confident in Dr DeJong's expertise. He is straightforward and honest in discussing pros and cons of surgeries or procedures. I am elated to have gone from having chronic knee pain and mobility problems to being virtually pain free as a result of surgery done only a few weeks ago. The course of post surgery recovery was easy and I appreciated his willingness to respond to questions or urgent phone calls as needed. Recommend Dr De Jong very highly.

I had Knee surgery with Dr. DeJong. He was absolutely incredible and I highly recommend him to everyone. Both before and after the surgery he always explained carefully what he was doing and what my part in the recovery should be.He listens carefully to his patient's concerns and takes them into consideration. His team at his rooms and at the surgery center were caring,friendly and very competent. Because of Dr DeJong's excellent procedures my recovery was fast and very successful.
