Excellent Care was provided by staff and by Dr. Dean. Dr. Dean is a very caring and knowledgeable provider. I feel his care in his actions, his voice and his mannerisms. I would recommend anyone to him as a provider.

Dr Dean is the best in my opinion that you have there, I hope the rest of the doctors are as helpful and knowledgeable and friendly.

I love this practice! Dr. Dean started my positive experience years ago fixing my rotator cuff, and I've been getting cortisone shots in my knee to delay surgery from him regularly. Dr. Nitka fixed my neck by doing a foramanotomy (sp?), and another doctor there saw my son for his broken hand. We consider everyone in this practice FAMILY! I have referred lots of people here.
