in Anchorage, AK
Dr Dean is rude. She explains things quickly. She shows no compassion nor empathy . I asked what type of incision would be made and she rattled off " I cut you there, there and there, spoken in 3 seconds. I responded with " when my right hand was operated on they only made 2 small incision's....more
