Dr. Dean is an excellent surgeon. Kind, caring and thorough.

Dr. Dean Sotereanos and his staff were excellent. They were caring and provided excellent care to me. He was the only doctor that helped me with my injury. I was injured in May 2016 and saw various doctors that did not know what to do with my injury. He immediately knew what the problem was and performed surgery and I am finally on my way to recovery. I would highly recommend Dr. Sotereanos and his staff.

I have been dealing with my shoulder issue since 1/26/15 when a lady hit me from behind and have had shoulder surgery, a nerve block, multiple injections. This facility and the people are AMAZING in my eyes. There were x-rays taken, an injection and he was able to figure out exactly what is wrong. I have lived in pain this whole time and to know there is a possible end to this you have no idea how that feels to me.

No problems or concerns.
