I appreciate that he treated me with respect. I've had bad orthopedic doctor experiences in the past. I appreciate that he recognized that I have discomfort and was optimistic about treating it.

Dr Sotereanos performed a surgery on me previously and my care from start to finish was excellent from the staff in office to the staff I dealt with in the hospital. which of course prompted me to contact the same group again for my recent surgery. again, my treatment by all was fantastic and made sure I was as comfortable as possible while under their care. everything was handled as professional as you would expect it to be. a heartfelt thank you to that staff and UPMC !!

My first time seeing Dr. Dean. Actually, the best experience I ever had going to a Dr. Including Dr. Dean, I interacted with seven members of his staff. All were curteous, thorough, prompt, knowledgeable, and professional.
