I have referred dr. Dean to serve all of my friends and acquaintances and this is my third return occasion to visit with him the prior to involved breaks. He is very thorough and confident he did X-rays and a sonogram the soft tissue Ang what he was seeing to me knowing that I am not medically trained. He is friendly and warm without going overboard or wasting time. I feel that he is one of the best doctors that I have ever made the acquaintance of.

Dr Dean was simply terrific.

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.
