Patient Comments (6)

The wait time was excessive, i waited in the exam room for 45 minutes, at this time I left the office without seeing the Doctor. I won't be going back, I believe the Doctor is overbooking.

I was referred to Dr. Dean while in physical therapy. I'd never been to a sports doctor before, so I wasn't sure what to expect. But, Dr. Dean is so kind and caring and he really helps me. Plus, he's got a great sense of humor and his staff is great, too.

Dr. Dean was personable and friendly and took the time to look into my rather long physical history. He was able to assess my issue with an ACL tear that hard been overlooked for many years. He came up with a plan of action that has provided me with relief for the first time in years.

My experience with Dr. Dean was exceptional. He took the best line of reasoning and procedure to properly assess my issue and concerns. Not ONCE did I feel rushed or silly for asking any questions. My appointments all began on time and ended when I was questionless and satisfied. I wish more...more
