in Saugerties, NY |
Wonderful, compassionate and very down to earth. Made my first colonoscopy a breeze. I've been putting it off for years for no reason at all. Awesome staff and facility. Thanks Dr Dean, for taking such good care of me!

Calm and reassuring, he answers questions and spends time explaining what is to be done.
kingston, ny |
Dr. Dean was initially very determined to find out what was wrong with me. He gave up VERY quickly, once a few standard tests didn't provide answers. After several days in the hospital and normal blood work and no initial findings in testing, he wrote me a script for an anti-depressant with ELEVEN REFILLS and walked out. I have complained to the practice, with no response. Run...don't walk. I was eventually diagnosed with a congenital issue and have scheduled surgery. He is a very basic GI.
in Beacon, NY |
After being told by other doctors that I had diverticulitis, Dr. Dean told me that I had IBS. He told me to go on the Mediterranean diet, and when I asked him what that was he told me to look it up on line. When I asked why so many other Dr.s thought I had diverticulitis he got annoyed that I was questioning him. It is now a year later and I've had two more Dr.s confirm that I actually do have diverticulitis. I am getting surgery soon, but I have suffered all year for nothing.
