Dr. Dean was excellent. I was VERY happy that he was knowledgeable about my health issues and was able to provide me a diagnosis. He took the time to have a conversation with me about my options and provided education about my current needs, treatment plan and my disease. I never felt rushed and believe he was honestly interested in my case as a patient. This is very rare based upon my experience- I cannot put in to words how satisfied I am with my visit with this provider. I am happy I was linked to him, it was a blessing.
