In 2007, after being referred from my primary care doctor to Dr. Dejong, I was truly amazed at his courteous approach to patient care. From my first visit to months after surgery, I could not have asked for more. He did an impeccable job removing my thyroid, I had no scarring, and was amazing all throughout radiation treatment. Dr. Dejong is personable, informative, courteous, and even to this day with follow up ultrasounds etc. clearly an amazing surgeon. Very Highly Recommended!
