I received excellent care from you and your staff while at Piedmont Hospital, after being transferred from Eastside Medical. My follow-up care was awesome as well after my triple bypass surgery. His staff was very polite, well informed and attentive to my after care. There never was a time me, or my family were left in the dark about what was going on with my case. I'd highly recommend him for care as well as all your other cardiac needs. My family and I can't thank you and your staff enough.

Dr. Dean & all his staff so far have been real pleasant to be around. If I didn't understand what they were trying to explain to me all I had to do is ask &they would explain. Dr Dean is real down to earth.
