I had a total knee replacement, I am now 9 week post-op and can say that I have not felt this good for years. Dr Dean was very informative with everything that needed to be done, I had no question regarding anything. The entire staff was very courteous and professional. Also my son was seen there for a different reason and again very satisfied with the care he received ad VERY satisfied with my care

Excellent surgeon! I am very pleased with Doctor Dean’s surgical skill. He was able to put my ankle back together. (It took 12 screws and a plate, but he managed it.) Doctor Dean is an excellent communicator. He prepared me for what I would experience after surgery and during the recovery process. He always takes time to discuss my concerns. The office staff is courteous. It is more than evident the Doctor Dean and his staff strive for excellence in every area. I am impressed!

Dr. Dean is a great surgeon but his office staff is horrible! They are rude and not helpful at all. Never have I experienced such awful customer service every time I have been to this office.

I recently visited Dr. Dean with my 22 yr old son, it's not easy to get your adult child to go to a doctor but he knew it was time. Dr. Dean was absolutely excellent, he spoke to him in a manor we both could understand about his shoulder problem, he reviewed his x-rays which was showed clearly there is an issue that will need to be addressed. I would highly recommend Dr. Dean to my family and friends.

Dr. Dean is great. He has a good bedside manner. He explains things well so that you understand. The office staff is very nice. He did surgery on my shoulder and thoroughly explained the procedure and recovery. On my first post op appointment he explained what he did during the surgery and made sure I was ok. I have never had a hard time getting an appointment. He most definitely would be recommended by me.

Dr. Dean saw me right away when I broke my wrist. He gave me my options in a clear dialog that helped make my decision very easy as to what route I should take. I chose surgery. Dr. Dean got me in and out very fast. I had very little pain or discomfort & didn't have to miss a lot of work. My wrist is back to normal. He was very caring, listened to my concerns, took time to show me my x-rays and explain everything I wanted to know. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing his expertise.
