Worse experience ever. He did not give my frightened child the time of day, was more concerned with his drink and did not engage in conversation. When asked a question, he answered with a nod or a grunt, not very professional. Front staff was extremely rude also. Do not recommend.

He took care of my son's broken wrist few years ago. He's very skilled and very considerate. We're very thankful to have him as my son's doctor during that difficult time.

I had an ACL replacement at an outpatient center with Dr. Dewanjee. I got a bill for $8,000 from the anesthesiologist selected by Dr. Dewanjee. It is now on my credit for 7 years. I called to negotiate a lower amount and was told they DO NOT negotiate! In network average cost is less than $1,000! Because he was out of my network, I do not have any recourse. BEWARE! Also my ACL was not attached properly according to Dr. Firestone who did a total knee replacement less than 3 years later!

Dr DeWanjee and his staff are amazing. Dr DeWanjee is a very skilled surgeon. I needed shoulder surgery and went to another doctor for a 2nd opinion and he agreed with Dr DeWanjee and said he is an excellent doctor, his reputation precedes him. And that other doctor said he would not do my surgery because of what all needs to be done and would refer me to him. I would recommend him to anyone who needs a very skilled orthopedic surgeon.

One of the best Ortho Doctors in the Valley. From A-Z, polite, friendly, his surgery left minimal bruising and after just one week was amazed on the progress. Please if considering surgery, talk to Dr. Dewanjee and know you will be in great hands.

After falling at home my husband took me to the ER, where I was diagnosed with a broken wrist. Dr. Dewanjee was at the hospital where he had just finished surgery, he looked at my xray, talked to myself and my husband, he recommended putting in a plate the next morning. Dr. Dewanjee explained my options and the procedure in plan English, he was very professional and kind. My follow ups with him were professional. His staff is great. I would and have recommended him to other people.
