Dr. Dean was very attentive and very thorough in his examination. He took the time to explain various options depending on the outcome of further testing at imaging.

Dr Dean was simply terrific. He listened to me; he explained the x-rays taken and explained what was causing the pain; he explained what he would do today and how I could manage the right knee pain with Cortisone and Gel injections in the future. Absolutely loved my experience with Dr. Dean AND my knee isn't hurting!!

The PA was very nice. My preference is to see Dr Dean. My previous experiences with getting steroid injections have been almost pain free because Dr Dean's technique is excellent. The reason I want to go to this practice is for Dr Dean to provide my care.

Dr Dean. the best doctor I have ever worked with.

maybe I misunderstood but I did tell the doctor that I had a fear of falling and I get off balance very often, so I was thinking he may check something else with me, but he just talked about my knee?
