We were seeing Dr. Dewan for a second opinion, and while he ultimately had the same recommendation as our previous provider he gave a much more thorough explanation than we'd previously received. At one point our son became visibly upset, and Dr. Dewan showed great compassion toward him and did a great job of explaining things to him. He took his time with us, listened to our concerns, and answered our questions.

Very thoughtful. Intelligent. Easy to discuss and communicate with which is rare to find in a Dr. Caring to our child and rest of family. Dr. Dewan has made this process easier to bear considering the magnitude and seriousness of the subject. Vanderbilt is fortunate to have him work on these major serious issues.

Dr. Dewan was quite simply the best encounter with a physician I have ever experienced. I wish all medical personnel had his bedside manner - he is beyond an expert.

Dr had good bedside manner, he didn't make us feel rushed at all and took a great deal of time to ensure we understood everything. He used terms we were able to understand, not medical jargon. I was very pleased.

Dr Dewan is an exceptional doctor. He is beyond thorough. In our post op appointment I could actually see the joy in his face seeing my son happy and energetic and acting himself. As a parent, words can't really describe the comfort it brings feeling that your doctor really cares , and that we're not just another patient.
