Provider Review Comments

August 13, 2018
I was impressed with Dr. Dean's professionalism. Especially when he was talking to me, he looked me in the eye. Any questions I had, he made certain his answers were clear and concise. He explained what and why each procedure that he was doing. He explained other options.

My experience with Dr. Dean was very good, felt like he was more responsive than he has been in the past and I got a thorough review of my shoulder injury and a timeline for checking back in if it is still painful/not quite right (6 weeks).

I know that a 22 on a scale is off the charts but that's what dr dean and his staff deserve.the folks in the rehab center are a 21.987.... there were a couple of time they were out of ice cream but over all they were fantastic.
