Would have been terrific had he actually followed up on a upper endoscopy two years after the first one showed Barrett's but for some reason I fell through the cracks, no pun intended, this is not funny. Also, as others have indicated, this guy's personality changes minute by minute. He's nice then nasty, a Dr. Jekyl, I am not comfortable with him even though my PCP says he's a "doctor's doctor" but I can't find anyone in Ulster Cty. you can trust, the Doctors here stink.

Liked him at first. I returned to him about a year later and didn't feel well. Had ongoing stomach problems. He was very rude and told me to stop whining. I never returned for his followup.

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!

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.

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.
