Dr. Deben confirmed my suspicion that I am too old for a reputable doctor to help me.

I was on time for my morning appointment. The overall visit was okay but the doctor was really in a hurry and apologized for making me wait so much. Once I was "seen" by the very nice assistant who seemed tobe more knowledgeable and attentive than the doctor and got an X-ray done, I waited for another 30 minutes to see the doctor. total- 2 hours in the office for a 3 minute visit

Don't bother filling the forms online. The receptionist makes you feel them out in person when you arrive. They said they don't have access to the forms that one fills out online.

She was a breath of fresh air, I was very comfortable talking to her and she works very quickly to get down to the problem area. Not like other dr who give you pain pills just to keep you coming back

Dr Deben was wonderful. Like Doctors were when I was young. Her entire staff, reflects her professional, knowledgeable, and friendly demeanor. She gave me as much time as I needed, answered every question, and explained everything in detail.I went to Dr Deben for a broken leg, with an added complication of Multiple Sclerosis. She had a resident, who was also very capable, but when she showed him the x-ray, even I understood what she was explaining. I highly recommend her to anyone who wants an excellent Doctor, who cares.

Awesome Doctor and staff. Take their time explaining you everything, but the best part is the time and dedication to you as the patient and the fact that she listens to everything that you say and answers every single question or doubt you may have

I feel like I couldn't be in better hands. Dr. Deben was very professional but the most compassionate physician I've ever been to and I'm going to be 60 this June. I highly recommend this extraordinary doctor.

It was very nice to have a true provider who took the time to understand my issues (many), explain the treatment options in an understandable way, and treated me as a person (not a number).
